Republican senator Lindsey Graham finally has an iPhone, he announced today on ABC’s This Week, after being forced to upgrade once Donald Trump publicized his old cell number at an event last week. Until the upgrade, which has apparently thrilled his staff, Graham had been one of the last remaining members of what Politico calls the “Congressional Flip Phone Caucus,” which is also presumably the group of U.S. lawmakers least likely to be ensnared in a sexting scandal. Graham, who wants to be president, also confirmed today that he has never, in his life, sent an email.
