BREAKING: Rep. Franks Goes After McCain's Unendorsement of Trump: "Profound Mistake...Potentially Destroy the Constitution"

Arizona Rep. Trent Franks (R-CD2) blasted Sen. John McCain's (R-AZ) decision to unendorse Donald Trump and write in friend Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC) as a "profound mistake" that could "potentially destroy the Constitution".

Franks was quoted in a New York Times article about the House Republican caucus conference call convened yesterday by Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) as saying that no actions should be taken that could end up handing the White House to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, because that would put the Supreme Court at risk, which could end up allowing more fetuses to be destroyed.

On MSNBC this morning, Franks said the NY Times got the gist of his comments correct - I did say "little women" - but that he emphasized that while Trump's words were degrading towards women, Clinton's election would pave the way for many "little women" to be aborted.  Her election could "potentially destroy the Constitution."

When questioned about McCain's un-endorsement and his comments at last night's debate against Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (D-CD1) that he might write in fellow Sen. Lindsay Graham (one of the first to tangle with and be forced out by Trump's campaign), Franks briefly hesitated before saying it "would be a profound mistake" if McCain did that.
