Republican presidential candidate Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) no longer has a full voicemail box.

On Tuesday, fellow candidate Donald Trump gave out Graham’s personal cell phone number during a speech in South Carolina. The stunt was apparently a vendetta for Graham calling him “the world’s biggest jackass” earlier in the day.

But this video published Wednesday by the conservative news site Independent Journal Review gave Graham an opportunity to fix his mobile problems.

Graham set his phone on fire, chopped it in half with a meat cleaver, dropped it from a roof and put it in a blender with along with some Red Bull.

“If all else fails, you can always give your number to the Donald,” Graham said to close the video.

Graham solicited advice in the Android/iPhone debate on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon. Perhaps an adviser should have told Graham he didn’t need to destroy his cell phone to get a new number.
