Biden says Lindsey is a 'personal disappointment' as a former colleague

President-elect Joe Biden called Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) "a personal disappointment" when asked about his friendship with his former Senate colleague in an interview that aired on Friday.

"Lindsey's been a personal disappointment because I was a personal friend of his," Biden told talk show host Stephen Colbert when asked whether he could patch things up with the Republican senator.

Biden and Graham served in the Senate together before Biden became vice president in 2009.

Graham has previously spoken emotionally about his friendship with Biden, notably calling him "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 said, calling Biden “as good a man as God ever created.”

Graham was also particularly critical of then-presidential candidate Donald Trump at the time, calling him a "race-baiting, xenophobic religious bigot."

However, Graham's tune has dramatically shifted during the Trump administration. The South Carolina Republican is seen as one of the most vocal allies of the president and was initially slow to formally accept Biden's presidential victory.

Graham, along with a number of other Republican senators, said they accepted Biden's win after the Electoral College vote on Monday.

Biden will face a bitterly divided Congress when he takes office next month but has touted his history of reaching across the aisle as a senator and vice president.

"I think I can work with Republican leadership in the House and the Senate," Biden told Colbert.

"I think we can get things done, and I think once this president is no longer in office, I think you're going to see an impact on the body politic fade, and a lot of these Republicans are going to feel they have much more room to run and cooperate."

lol I'm sure he'll be back to kissing Biden's behind if fraudulently installed...

Also Biden in the interview confirming "business as usual" (Uniparty) if Trump leaves office. Makes me sick.

Don’t give a sh*t about RINO Lindsey but BidenIdiot is not only a ‘disappointment,’ the moronic idiot of a corrupt politician openly admits to having ‘the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in history of American politics,’ go frakin’ figure when the Idiot spouts nonsense about ‘personal disappointment,’ etc. Obama must be mad as a mofo given BidenIdiot got more total votes than the community organizing man who came out of utter nowhere that was then proclaimed and sold as the next best thing to Jesus Christ...so mad. /s

Now we know Biden has lost it. Why would he attack one of his staunchest Senatorial allies?

Really? What’s not to like? Graham is a dolt. Being a perverted criminal is part of what makes up a person. Sorry; can’t admire that.

*************

I watched him on fox a couple days ago. He went on and on about how much he he liked Joe and Jill and what good friends they were. It was all I could do to not puke. I’ve seen he do this dance with others. Makes me wonder just how dirty is Lindsey?

Same here. Being a “public servant” should in no way be a career instead of a calling, and certainly not a position in which to become wealthy and powerful while exempting yourself from the laws and regulations with which you so blithely burden the public you supposedly “serve”. Modern “public servants” are disgusting.

If you are not behind the dems 100%, all the arse-kissing in the world won’t save you, Linda. Maybe try more fist-bumping!

Flimsey will make it up to him by giving the Democrats a permanent majority with amnesty for illegal aliens.

Personal disappointment as a former colleague.

In fighting in the good old boy club is a wonderful thing.

Perhaps Lindsay could miraculously grow a scrotum, stand up and protest the electoral vote.

He and Rand could together shut down this fiasco....and earn some much needed respect at the same time.
