Clyburn: Graham Needs to ‘Go Back to Church’ Over Reparations Remarks

“Lindsey Graham is from South Carolina. He knows South Carolina’s history. He knows what the state of South Carolina and this country has done to Black farmers in South Carolina. They didn’t do it to White farmers. We’re trying to rescue the lives and livelihoods of people. He ought to be ashamed of himself. … I think you ought to go back and maybe go to church. Get in touch with his Christianity.”

— House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) blasted Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) over his comments that aid to Black farmers in the Covid-19 relief bill are “reparations,” CNN reports.

Clyburn Endorses Biden

“I know Joe Biden. I know his character, his heart, and his record. Joe Biden has stood for the hard-working people of South Carolina. We know Joe. But more importantly, he knows us. In South Carolina, we choose presidents. I’m calling on you to stand with Joe Biden.”

— Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC) endorsed Joe Biden in the Democratic presidential race, which could give the former vice president a much-needed boost in the South Carolina primary race.
