Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) gave a brutal rebuttal to former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) after she claimed that electing former President Donald Trump would mean the U.S. is sleepwalking into a dictatorship.
Graham, in a Sunday interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” said he thinks Cheney’s hatred of the former President is real. The senator added that while many people don’t like Trump. Another four years of President Joe Biden’s Presidency would be a disaster for the world.
“I think a continuation of the Biden presidency would be a disaster for peace and prosperity at home and abroad. Our border is broken,” Graham said. “The only person really going to fix a broken border is Donald Trump. When he was president, none of this stuff was going on in Ukraine. You know, Hamas and all of these other terrorist groups were afraid of Trump. I think Liz’s hatred of Trump is real. I understand why people don’t like what he does and says at times, but in terms of actions and results, he was a far better president than Biden, and if we have four more years of this, Liz Cheney, then we won’t recognize America and the world will be truly on fire.”
Cheney, a former House GOP, is one of the two Republicans on the House January 6 Select Committee. Her rivalry with Trump and constant opposition to her House Republican colleagues cost her seat during the 2022 midterm election.
Cheney, in an appearance on this week’s broadcast of “CBS Sunday Morning,” claimed that she doesn’t want the Republicans to have the House majority in 2024. She spoke against having House Speaker Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA) in his role in 2024.

Liz is the epitome of the Washington Uniparty.

“He can’t be (Johnson can’t be speaker). We are facing a situation with respect to the 2024 election where it’s an existential crisis, and we have to ensure that we don’t have a situation where an election that might be thrown into the House of Representatives is overseen by a Republican majority.”
