Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) joined host Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday Night to react to Sen. Joe Manchin’s (D-WV) latest version of the SR-1 voting bill. This bill calls for a commission to redistrict states, ballot harvesting and no longer requires an ID to vote.

“Well, one, I like Joe Manchin a lot,” Graham said. “But we had the largest turnout in the history of the United States and states are in charge of voting in America. So I don’t like the idea of taking the power to redistrict away from state legislators.”

The South Carolina senator admitted this would not be in his party’s favor. “You’re having people move from blue states to red states. Under this proposal, you would have some kind of commission redraw the new districts, and I don’t like that. I want states where people are moving to have control over how to allocate new congressional seats.” Therefore, his party would remain a majority in those districts.

Wallace asked Graham if he could “go along with the Manchin stripped down version” of the bill anyway.

“So, as much as I like Joe Manchin, the answer would be no,” Graham responded. “In my view, SR. 1 is the biggest power grab in the history of the country. It’s just a bad idea and it’s a problem that most Republicans are not going to sign. They’re trying to fix a problem most Republicans have a different view of.”

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
