Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Wednesday responded to Hillary Clinton’s claims that civility will return to Congress if Democrats win in November by invoking former First Lady Michelle Obama.

“So, Michelle Obama said, ‘when they go low, we go high.’ Here’s my view of the Democratic Party regarding Kavanaugh,” he told Fox News’ Martha MacCallum. “Going low is a step up for you. You are in the gutter in terms of the Democratic Party’s approach.”

Graham isn’t the first to reference the former first lady’s catch phrase this week. Former Obama administration Attorney General Eric Holder created his own rendition of the tagline during a speech over the weekend.

“When they go low, we kick ’em,” Holder said.
