(NationalSentinel) Sen. Lindsey Graham said Thursday night during an appearance on Fox News‘ Sean Hannity program that infighting between Democrat leadership including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the far-Left faction of her party led by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) will lead to GOP victories next year.
And a new Republican majority in the House.
“What does this really mean? I think Republicans are more likely to take the House back because of this breakdown,” Graham said.
“There are 31 Democrats that hold congressional seats where President Trump won their congressional district,” Graham, a South Carolina Republican, continued. “What does it mean to these 31?
“If you cross AOC and the Fab Four, you’re gonna get a primary” challenger in 2020, he said, a reference to Ocasio-Cortez and other far-Left freshmen Democrats including Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.). “And if you vote with them, you’re gonna lose in the general elections.
“So the biggest beneficiary to this will be the Republican Party and Presiden Trump because the policies these four people are pushing are so out of the mainstream,” Graham noted further. “If you’re one of these 31 Democrats, you’ve gotta pick between the energy of the Fab Four and the practicality of Nancy Pelosi, you’re in a no-win situation.”
What are those policies? Hannity listed a litany of them — including higher taxes, open borders, Medicare for All, and Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘Green New Deal,’ which calls for ending all reliance on fossil fuels and the modes of transportation they support.
“If I’m President Trump I’d go to Florida, I’d show up next November and get reelected,” Graham said, referencing the president’s Mar-A-Lago resort home.
“LIterally, Mr. President, if you’re watching tonight, just enjoy this, be quiet, because here’s what they’re saying,” he continued. “They’re gonna decriminalize crossing the border illegally. And once you get here, they’ll give you free healthcare.
“How many people in the world, do you think, will take us up on the offer? This is insane.”
