Every time the president goes on national television and threatens Putin — or anyone like Putin — everybody’s eyes roll.

South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham advised President Barack Obama to stop threatening “thugs and dictators” like Russia’s Vladimir Putin on television, claiming that “everybody’s eyes roll” every time he does.
Graham spoke with CNN’s Candy Crowley on a panel including Democratic Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin. Crowley noted that Graham had been critical of Obama’s brief statement on the Russian invasion of southern Ukraine on Friday. “What more do you want from President Obama at this point?” the CNN host asked.
“Well number one, stop going on television and trying to threaten thugs and dictators,” Graham began. “It is not your strong suit. Every time the president goes on national television and threatens Putin — or anyone like Putin — everybody’s eyes roll, including mine. We have a weak and indecisive president that invites aggression.”
