Sen. Lindsey Graham “was using Trump to mop up the freebies like there was no tomorrow,” according to former Trump White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham.

Grisham's book I’ll Take Your Questions Now is scheduled to be released on Tuesday. In the book, she claimed the South Carolina Republican used former President Donad Trump to score free rounds of golf, food, and access to celebrities.

"Someone who was almost as frequent a guest at Trump properties as I was Senator Lindsey Graham," Grisham wrote, according to Insider, which obtained an early copy of the book. "Okay, I'm exaggerating, but not by much. The difference, of course, is that I was there to work."

“It struck me that he was using Trump to mop up the freebies like there was no tomorrow (seems that he still is). He would show up at Mar-a-Lago or Bedminster to play free rounds of golf, stuff his face with free food, and hang out with Trump and his celebrity pals,” Grisham continued.

Grisham said Graham was "one of the weirder" characters who was close to Trump, calling him "almost schizophrenic."

"Some days he would be one of Trump's most vigorous defenders; other days he was a harsh critic," she wrote. "People around the president would tell him that he couldn't trust Graham, but Trump seemed to like him for whatever reason and I often wondered if he sought Lindsey's approval."

Grisham cited one occasion in which she said Graham kicked a Trump staffer out of her room at Bedminster.

"Senator Freeloader was sitting at a table by the pool, a big grin on his face, lapping up the goodies he was getting like some potentate," she wrote. "He said to me, with a creepy little smile, 'Isn't this great? Man, this is the life.'"
