Lindsey Graham Says He's Never Sent An Email (Video)


South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham (R) told Meet The Press moderator Chuck Todd this week that he's never sent an email.

While discussing the controversy surrounding former Secretary of State and potential 2016 candidate Hillary Clinton involving her use of a personal email address for government business, Graham made the strange admission, and it soon went viral.

"Do you have a private e-mail address?" Todd asked Graham in the interview.

"I don't email. No, you can have every email I've ever sent," Graham, 59, replied. "I've never sent one. I don't know what that makes me."

Graham, of course, didn't spend much time talking about his own email practices. Rather, he took the opportunity to raise questions about Clinton's seemingly inappropriate use of her private email address despite government policy that business emails be handled from a public government account.

"Did she communicate on behalf of The Clinton Foundation as Secretary of State?" he asked. 

After Graham's admission went viral, he elaborated further following a town hall event in New Hampshire. Graham told Fox News that he simply prefers to talk on the phone. "I'm glad I don't have the ability to say everything that comes to my mind instantly," he said. "The way I communicate is that I talk to people face to face. I'll pick up the phone.

"The next president of the United States needs to be good with people, not just technology," he added.
