After Donald Trump shared Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-SC) cell phone number with supporters during a speech in South Carolina, Gawker on Monday attempted to exact some revenge by sharing The Donald’s personal phone number with the Internet.

A call to the number by TPM was met with a busy signal, but Trump’s aide sometimes answers his phone, according to Gawker.

“Since Trump, in his considered political judgment, has decided that opening up a direct, personal channel of communications between his supporters and his primary opponents is a noble campaign tactic, we think it’s only fair and right that Republican primary voters be able to reach out to Trump himself,” Gawker’s Sam Biddle wrote. “If it is the case—as Trump’s release of Graham’s number implicitly argues—that our political discourse improves when voters can ring up candidates on their private cell phones, then we are happy to add Trump’s cell phone number to the body of public knowledge.”

  1. Gawker also published a pretty funny story of a white pride guy wearing FUBU sneakers (because they’re clan colors or something).

    Of course, the guy who posted it, Sam Biddle, would be apoplectic with rage if someone on Reddit had done so.

    Still, hilarious.

  3. If he was smart, he’d just swap out the SIM card for a new number…which is what Graham Cracker should have done instead of destroying all those phones like a Drama Queen just to gain attention.

  4. Or sue anyone who calls him.

  5. Sorry…I meant to reply and I accidentally erased my original comment. OOops…not my day.
