A throng of Trump supporters accosted Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham at Reagan National Airport on Friday, according to videos of the interaction posted to Twitter by Politico reporter Daniel Lippman and conservative activist Mindy Robinson, who was in the crowd. 

In Lippman's video, a crowd of people can be seen gathering around a bench where Graham appeared to be seated and talking on a cell phone. 

At the beginning of the footage that Lippman said was shared by a source, one person can be heard shouting, "Traitor!" and "You're a liar!" while airport security officers attempt to keep the group away from Graham.

A man can also be heard trying to convince the officers that "I'm not going to touch him, I'm not going to do anything to do him … I just want to speak to him" with another man asked Graham if he has anything to say. 

Another person said: "You work for us!"

The camera then pans to show the crowds of Trump supporters continuing to follow and hound Graham with shouts of "traitor, traitor!" as security escorts Graham.

One woman in a black T-shirt with an "I love Trump" design on the front and a Q on the back (an apparent reference to the QAnon conspiracy movement) yelled, with her mask pulled down to her chin, "One day, he will not be able to walk down the street — it is today!"

Another man agreed. "Today's the day!" he said.

Robinson's video showed the crowd closing in on Graham, who walked with his head bowed and his mask pulled down, as Robinson shouted, "You're a traitor!" "You knew it was rigged!' "Audit the vote, piece of sh–!" and, finally, "Enjoy Gitmo, you f—king a–hole!"

Robinson later tweeted: "He didn't make his flight."

"I've seen the video from Twitter. Looks like it was taken at Reagan National. I have no further details, and it appears no one has been charged," Rob Yingling, a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority told Insider. 

Graham's office did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
