Newly released audio recorded during the tumultuous events of January 6th, 2021 have now revealed that GOP Senator Lindsey Graham praised Joe Biden as the best man to lead the country while crowds stormed the Capitol building.
As The Daily Mail reports:
‘We will actually come out of this thing stronger. Moments like this reset,’ a somber Graham said from a secure location, according to audio obtained by reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns and aired on CNN.
Graham, 66, goes on to praise Biden. ‘He’ll be maybe the best person to have, right? I mean, how mad can you get at Joe Biden?’
The lawmaker from South Carolina gave an impassioned speech on the floor when Congress resumed moments later, telling his colleagues to ‘count me out’ of Trump world.
Since then however, he’s returned to praising Trump for what he did during his administration and has even been spotted golfing with the ex-president at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.
