WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Blasting Joe Biden’s plan to give a prime-time speech on Thursday, Sen. Lindsey Graham warned that the President’s “incendiary pro-democracy rhetoric” could lead to “voting in the streets.”

“President Biden needs to watch his words very, very carefully,” the senator from South Carolina said. “People are on edge right now. Say the wrong thing, and this nation could witness unrestrained, uncontrolled voting.”

Cautioning the President against embracing “reckless pro-democracy views,” Graham said, “You are playing with fire, my friend.”

Graham described a “doomsday scenario,” in which Americans line up to vote in the millions and “radical activists offer them bottles of water in clear violation of the law.”

He said he was “not alone” in sounding the alarm about a dangerous outbreak of voting this November. “I don’t know of a single Republican who wants to see this happen,” he said.
