Senator Lindsey Graham did indeed offer up that stunner of a quote, though the South Carolina Republican says he was only telling jokes among friends.
The remark comes from audio CNN obtained via South Carolina Democrats. Graham told the network he made the comment a few weeks ago at a Hiberian Society of Charleston meeting where speakers are encouraged to "be earthy, to make fun of yourself."
Graham's full quote: "I'm trying to help you with your tax status. I'm sorry the government's so f--ked up. If I get to be president, white men in male-only clubs are going to do great in my presidency."
