Sen. Lindsey Graham responded to President-elect Joe Biden after he called Graham a “personal disappointment” during an interview with Stephen Colbert on Friday.
Asked if he could patch things up with Graham Biden said: “Lindsey’s been a personal disappointment because I was a personal friend of his.”
Asked about Biden’s comments on “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday Graham said:”I like Joe Biden and I like Jill. This is not easy. Hunter Biden’s had all kinds of problems.What happened here is that Hunter Biden took advantages of his position of being the vice president’s son. I’m disappointed that Joe Biden let this happen. He obviously is pretty much clueless.”
“It’s not personal and it breaks my heart that this happened, but I’m hell-bent on making sure we live in a country where everybody gets looked at when there’s a reason,” Graham added.
Before Trump, Biden and Graham were close. He called Biden “the nicest person I think I’ve ever met in politics” in a 2015 Huffington Post interview. “If you can’t admire Joe Biden as a person, you’ve got a problem. You need to do some self-evaluation, ‘cause, what’s not to like?” Graham added. He also called Biden “as good a man as God ever created.”
