Senator Lindsey Graham duped by Russian pranksters

Lindsey Graham fell victim to Russian pranksters pretending to be the Turkish defense minister, telling the notorious cold callers the Kurds are a "threat".

The South Carolina Republican spoke with Russian pranksters Alexey Stolyarov and Vladimir Kuznetsov in a conversation he thought was with Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar.

It should be mentioned that Graham is one of the US senators calling for economic sanctions on Turkey for its military operation in Syria.
