Rep. Clyburn argues “voter suppression” the only way Biden can lose

Appearing on Fox News, House Majority Whip argued that the only way Joe Biden could lose would be “for voter suppression to be successful.”

Clyburn told Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum “The only way, in my opinion, for Joe Biden not to be successful on Tuesday is for voter suppression to be successful.”

“I have had complaints all day today,” he continued “Professional football players from my home state cannot vote because their ballots have not been delivered to them. They can’t come home to vote because they are in lockdown because of COVID-19. So I already know some Biden voters here in South Carolina are not going to be  allowed to vote simply because the postal service has been undercut by the  Postmaster General,.”

Clyburn later responded to a Fox News poll that showed Trump receiving 14% of the black vote, a much higher % than he received in 2016.

Clyburn said “I don’t know where those polls come from”

He continued “I can tell you what, and I feel this sincerely…I’m the father of three Black women. I am the son of a Black woman. If any Black man can go in a polling place and cast a vote for a man who referred to a Black woman as a dog on national television, I’m going to have to pray for them. I will have to pray for them. I don’t know of any man [who] can abide that kind of disrespect and insult.”

This is the 2018 tweet Clyburn was apparently referring to.

Trump was referring to Omarosa.
