Leaked audio reveals Lindsey Graham said Biden was “best person” to be President

Former President Donald Trump’s loyal base of Republican supporters stuck with him even after the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol. The same can’t be said of one fellow politician.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) called President Joe Biden the “best person to have” running the country following the incursion at the Capitol, the Conservative Brief reported. This was a departure for Graham, who had previously been a staunch Trump ally.

This revelation comes from audio obtained by Alexander Burns and Jonathan Martin, the New York Times reporters who co-authored a new book, “This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future,” according to The Hill. The duo shared Graham’s words on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” Tuesday.

“We’ll actually come out of this thing stronger,” Graham can be heard saying in the audio clip captured in the immediate aftermath of the incident. “Moments like this reset,” he insisted.

“People will calm down. People will say, ‘I don’t want to be associated with that,'” Graham added. “This is a group within a group. What this does, there will be a rallying effect for a while, the country says, ‘We’re better than this,'” he claimed.

However, the most shock part of the audio came after Martin asked Graham if Biden, then-president-elect, would contribute to that sentiment once in office. “Totally, he’ll be maybe the best person to have, right. I mean, how mad can you get at Joe Biden?” Graham told him.

The South Carolina lawmaker has since rescinded his support for Biden, claiming that the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan ruined his good opinion. “He’s a decent man. But what he did in Afghanistan, I will never forgive him for,” Graham said on Fox News’s “America’s Newsroom” in November.

The events of Jan. 6 continue to have far-reaching effects on Washington, D.C. politics. While it’s encouraging that Graham came to his senses about Biden, this kind of betrayal is something Trump endured his whole presidency — and his supporters won’t forget at re-election time.
