The lawmaker’s hyperbole comes in response to pushback from Notre Dame students who have asked the university not to add a Chick-fil-A restaurant on campus.

In a public letter, students cited the chicken chain’s “anti-LGBTQ+ activism, reliance on animal agriculture and lack of accommodations for students with special dietary needs.”

Graham responded in a tweet by pointing to the restaurant’s “Great food. Great service. Great values.”

“God bless Chick-fil-A,” he tweeted.

Chick-fil-A is headquartered in College Park, Georgia, outside Atlanta.
