Lindsey Graham Wants to Be President and Blow People Up with Drones

Terrorists around the world shudder at mere mention of his name.

South Carolina senator Lindsey Graham told CBS This Morning that he will be running for president because "the world is falling apart" and apparently he's the man to save it. Graham is the seventh Republican candidate to throw his hat into the ring for the upcoming presidential nomination, and he's got a pretty bold idea about how he'll deal with would-be terrorists once he's shacked up in the White House—he's going to sick a drone on them.

"If I'm president of the United States and you're thinking about joining al-Qaeda or [Islamic State], I'm not gonna call a judge," Graham said a few days ago at the Iowa GOP Lincoln Dinner. "I'm gonna call a drone and we will kill you." With Amazon's drone delivery service still needing to hammer some kinks out, Graham seems like the next best place for the drone lobby to funnel their funds. He will officially announce his bid for president on June 1.
