"So he's destroying this country, but yes he's charming," Inhofe said.

Inhofe skipped Thursday's lunch between Senate Republicans and the president on Capitol Hill, the third congressional visit in as many days for the president.

Inhofe told Ingraham that he was surprised that the president's "charm" was "still working" on not just his fellow members of Congress, but the American electorate.

"I was one of those who never believed he could be reelected," Inhofe said. "Sure he's charming enough to elected the first time, but once people know that charm cannot overrule his performance in destroying this country, but yeah I guess it's still working."
