It took Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) minutes after President Joe Biden’s inauguration for him to smear his family on national television.
Shortly after Biden’s inauguration concluded on Wednesday, Graham was interviewed by CBS News. During the interview he attacked the president’s son Hunter Biden.
“If Mike Pence’s son had been accused of doing the things that Hunter Biden did, you wouldn’t be asking me does it hurt my relationship with Vice President Pence to make sure that these things are looked at,” Graham complained. “So, no, I like Joe Biden. But what I can’t get over is the fact there are allegations about Hunter Biden and his brother monetizing the vice presidency and all of the sudden you’re a bad guy if you want to let the process move forward.”

“I like you, I want to work with you,” the senator said of the Biden family. “But nobody hesitated to send a wrecking ball to the Trump family. So all I can say is if you want to heal the nation, we need to start anew.”
