South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham faced fire from Republicans after he called for the assassination of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Graham said in a tweet:

“Is there a Brutus in Russia? Is there a more successful Colonel Stauffenberg in the Russian military?

"The only way this ends is for somebody in Russia to take this guy out.

“You would be doing your country – and the world – a great service."

A number of Republicans reacted angrily to Graham’s tweet, including Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who called Graham’s comments an “exceptionally bad idea.”

“This is an exceptionally bad idea. Use massive economic sanctions; BOYCOTT Russian oil & gas; and provide military aid so the Ukrainians can defend themselves," Cruz said.

"But we should not be calling for the assassination of heads of state," he added.

Republican Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz wrote:

Fox News host Laura Ingraham said Graham’s comments were “dangerous and stupid” on her show Thursday.

“Is there any intel, that you know of, that Putin’s days are numbered? I know Lindsey Graham earlier tonight tweeted that basically someone needs to ‘take him out,’ or maybe I’m paraphrasing. But he’s basically, someone should assassinate Putin,” Ingraham said.

“I don’t know why a sitting U.S. senator would be tweeting that out, it seems really dangerous and stupid to say that.

"And we like Lindsey Graham, but that’s just a stupid comment,” she added.

Graham also saw pushback from Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar.

“Seriously, wtf?,” Omar tweeted.

“I really wish our members of Congress would cool it and regulate their remarks as the administration works to avoid WWIII."

"As the world pays attention to how the U.S. and its leaders are responding, Lindsey’s remarks and remarks made by some House members aren’t helpful.
