    Sen. Lindsey Graham mocked all of his former rivals in the Republican race to replace President Barack Obama on Thursday night, joking that his "party has gone bat**** crazy."

    Speaking at the Washington Press Club Foundation Dinner, Graham had the harshest words for Sen. Ted Cruz.

    "If you kill Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate, and the trial was in the Senate, nobody could convict you," he said.

    The South Carolina native compared Obama's African roots to Cruz's background.

    "I will say that our Canadian is better than your Kenyan," he joked. "I know exactly when Ted is going to drop out of the race. March 12 — that's Canadian week in Myrtle Beach, when all of our Canadian friends get 10 percent off."

    Graham ended his remarks by calling himself the "Dr. [Jack] Kevorkian of the Republican party" because his bid for president failed, and then he endorsed Jeb Bush, who subsequently dropped out.

    Putting a Donald Trump hat on, he said "I endorse Donald Trump and hope the Graham magic still exists!"
