Explanations of the hints: It could mean an all-Methodist ticket: the meeting happened at the height of speculation about a Clinton-Warren ticket, which would feature two United Methodists; they're looking for payback: the report cited hundreds of people, including carpenters, dishwashers, lawyers, and others who allege Trump stiffed them on payments; he took Graham's suggestion: Kirk took Graham's suggestion to "un-endorse" Donald Trump; and at least he wasn't promoting a sponsor: just remember that if you should ever go to Iran and get to play on its national soccer team, you should not wear bright yellow pants.
