Joe Biden was getting hammered on Tuesday.
He was a sinking ship when the inflation reports came out.
Not only that, but Biden was also taking heat for holding a party at the White House for his Inflation Reduction Act while these reports were all coming out, reports he knew would be coming out.
It was as though Biden was laughing in our faces.
Then Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) introduced his abortion legislation, and the media refocused on Graham instead of Biden.
Fox News' Jesse Watters asked the same question we were asking… Why now?
Watters told Graham that Americans were angry with him for giving Joe Biden an "out."
Graham shot back that he refused to sit on the sidelines while Democrats tried to force through extreme legislation.
As if a day or a week would have mattered.
Why not let Biden take his lumps uninterrupted?
Watters shot back, "No one is saying you need to sit on the sidelines, but yesterday wasn't the day to do that.
"Yesterday was the day they lost all momentum when this inflation thing punched them right in the face, and you gave them an out.
"A lot of people don't like that.
"You could have done it on any other day, just like you could have delayed the whole press conference — like Joe should have delayed that stupid party."
The exchange was pretty tense, as you can see in the video below…
I said this the other day… Graham and Biden have a long and friendly history together.
I cannot help but wonder if Graham did this to ease the heat on Joe Biden after Trump has been attacking him pretty steadily over the last few months.
Graham is too skilled and experienced as a politician not to know that yesterday was the wrong time to put this legislation out publicly.
Did the Democrats put through any abortion bills today?
Do they have anything scheduled over the next week?
The answer to both is no, so why would he put this legislation out there on the day when we had the boot on JoeBiden's throat?
