Confidential to Donald Trump: Do you have Rep. John Yarmuth’s cellphone number?  

The presidential candidate gave out Sen. Lindsey Graham’s digits  Tuesday, in retaliation for being called a “jackass” on CNN by the South Carolina Republican and fellow 2016 presidential competitor.  

Trump might have to get creative with his punishment once he hears Yarmuth’s choice words.  

“I think he’s the No. 1 dumpster fire in the country right now,” the Kentucky Democrat told HOH Wednesday, rattling off the zinger with a polish that suggested he’d been waiting days for the opportunity.  

“You’re always thinking about the way he might respond,” Yarmuth said of Trump, “so I’m curious with how he’ll respond to that.”  

Trump, your move.
