Fox News Host Jesse Watters challenged Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) over the timing of his abortion bill announcement.
Lindsey Graham held a press conference Tuesday that would ban abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy. There are exceptions for rape, incest, or to protect the physical life of the mother in the bill.
The timing was strange because it came the same day that the Bureau of Labor Statistics showed that inflation increased in the same month President Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act.
Instead of talking about the new bill, Republicans could have used the day to highlight the failures of the Biden administration.
During a back and forth between Watters and Graham, the Fox News host kept mentioning how it was "not great timing."
"Why'd you do it on that day? Not great timing — don't you see that?" Watters question.
"I am proudly pro-life, and I have no apology for being pro-life. There's no bad time to defend the unborn," Graham responded, explaining his desire to respond to the Democrats' quest for "abortion on demand."
"I am not going to sit on the sidelines," Graham continued.
"No one is saying you need to sit on the sidelines, but yesterday wasn’t the day to do that," Watters fired back. "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."

Graham refused to back down from his timing and pushed that Republicans need to be "on the offensive."
"It's terrible timing, terrible tactics," Watters replied. "We could have shoved this down their throat on the day Americans got hammered with the inflation number and the market crashing and now all the media and the Democrats are talking about, 'Federal abortion ban! Federal abortion ban!' You know that's not smart politics, right?"
The Republican senator refused to back down.
"If not now, when? If not me, who?" Graham questioned.
"I respect your opinion. But like I said: Timing is off and timing is everything," Watters replied. "I'm just talking raw politics, brass tactics."
