'Any other day': Fox's Jesse Watters confronts Lindsey Graham over timing of abortion bill

September 16, 2022

Fox News host Jesse Watters confronted Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on air over the timing of his bill to ban abortion nationwide after 15 weeks. "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," Watters shot back. Graham said he takes issue with Watters's stance on timing, stressing, "I don't think there's a bad day to stand up for the unborn." Watters noted polling showing most people support restrictions on abortion after the first trimester but again chastised the senator on his "terrible" timing and tactics.
