White House press secretary Sarah Sanders praised Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C) for his passionate defense of President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
What did she say?
Her comments came after Graham blasted Democrats during Thursday's Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, which heard testimony from Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused the nominee of sexual assault.
".@LindseyGrahamSC has more decency and courage than every Democrat member of the committee combined. God bless him," Sanders wrote on Twitter.

During the hearing, Graham said Democrats have mismanaged sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh. He also described Kavanaugh’s confirmation process as "the most unethical sham since I've been in politics."
"God, I hate to say it, because these have been my friends," Graham said, referring to his Democratic colleagues, "but let me tell you, when it comes to this, you're looking for a fair process? You came to the wrong town at the wrong time, my friend."
Graham also addressed Kavanaugh.
"I hope you're on the Supreme Court," Graham told Kavanaugh. That's exactly where you should be. I hope the American people are able to see through this charade, and I wish you well, and I intend to vote for you, and I hope everybody who's fair-minded will."
Trump tweeted on Thursday, “Judge Kavanaugh showed America exactly why I nominated him. His testimony was powerful, honest, and riveting. Democrats’ search and destroy strategy is disgraceful and this process has been a total sham and effort to delay, obstruct, and resist. The Senate must vote!”
