“We can’t bear to watch Dianne Feinstein[the 90-year-old California senator]sit there and listen to aides tell her how she should vote. We don’t have to worry about Mitch McConnell being frozen at the podium. We can’t let Joe Biden forgets where he is,” Haley said.

“Our enemies are watching. Every time this happens, America becomes less safe because our enemies think we’re out of control,” she added.
