Sen. Lindsey Graham blasted President Obama for the foreign policy portion of his State of the Union address Tuesday night.

“The world is literally about to blow up,” the South Carolina Republican told Roll Call. “The world as I know was not remotely described by the president.”

“Syria is a contagion … Iraq is disintegrating. The whole region is moving toward chaos, and we’re doing nothing. We’re talking about limiting drones?” he continued.

“I hope he will leave a residual force in Afghanistan [so] they can do the job, because if he doesn’t, it will fall apart at a faster pace than Iraq,” he said.

Mr. Graham took along “Duck Dynasty’s” Korie Robertson to the State of the Union address. Her husband, Willie Robertson, also attended alongside Louisiana Rep. Vance McAllister.
