Mark Hamill just can’t stop fighting the dark side.

This morning, as the Donald Trump is wont to do, the President of the United States took to Twitter to threaten U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham for the S.C. senator’s criticism over the president’s reaction to white supremacist protests in Charlottesville, Va. over the weekend.
Sensing a disturbance in the Force, actor Mark Hamill, a.k.a. Luke Skywalker, took to Twitter to fire two tweets in defense of Graham. Paraphrasing Trump’s tone in parody, Hamill underscored the president’s personal attacks by poking fun, in all caps, at Graham’s androgynous first name.

In any case, the president has put Sen. Lindsey Graham on notice for his criticism of: “The people of South Carolina will remember!”

A challenge by a reality TV star wouldn’t be anything Graham hasn’t experienced before. In 2014, Thomas Ravenel mounted an Independent run against him and mustered 3.84 percent of the vote.
