“Lindsey Graham can be heard praising Joe Biden in newly surfaced audio as police worked to clear the Capitol during the January 6 riot. The Republican senator speculated that the attack would unite Americans. ‘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. … ‘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.” (05/11/22)
