(ConservativePeak.com)- Former Vice President Joe Biden, who is technically the “president-elect” despite ongoing litigation and challenges to the election results, lashed out at Republican Senator Lindsey Graham for not accepting the results of a compromised election in recent days.
In a segment aired by CBS on Friday, Joe Biden said he was disappointed that Senator Graham didn’t accept his “win” in the 2020 presidential election because he has long had a personal friendship with him.
“Lindsey’s been a personal disappointment because I was a personal friend of his,” Biden said to Stephen Colbert.
Joe Biden won’t say whether he can “patch it up” with Lindsey Graham after everything Graham’s said and done lately.

The two have indeed been friends, having both served in the Senate before Biden became the vice president under the Obama administration in 2009.
Graham has even talked about his friendship with Biden in previous interviews, saying he was an admirable person.
“If you can’t admire Joe Biden as a person, you’ve got a problem,” he said. “You need to do some self-evaluation, ‘cause, what’s not to like?”
Well, we could name a lot of things…but let’s not go there.
Biden’s disappointment in Graham is also either unfounded or exaggerated. The South Carolina Senator initially said he did not accept Biden as the president-elect, but did so after the Electoral College voted on 14th December. Graham, like many Republicans, held out until that date to ensure that legal proceedings and recounts could occur before votes were certified and presidential electors cast their vote.
Graham did not immediately accept the results of a compromised election and even donated funds to President Donald Trump’s legal fight.
In the weeks following the November presidential election, the president’s lawyers have uncovered damning evidence in the form of data analysis and video footage that shows shocking fraud and misconduct in battleground states. Thousands of sworn affidavits from regular Americans also attest to fraud occurring on a large scale.
If anything, Biden should be pleased with Graham, as he since has appeared to have accepted the results.
Meanwhile, the president fights on for election integrity, and many Republican members of Congress are talking about challenging the Electoral College vote in a joint session on January 6.
Biden appears content with the results and has dismissed the idea of election fraud, however, and told Colbert how he plans to “get things done” once President Donald Trump is out of 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,” he claimed.
Sure, Republicans will feel they have more room once Joe Biden packs the courts and gives DC statehood…
