Clyburn insisted his state doesn’t have drop boxes. A lot of South Carolina counties have drop boxes! People in counties without boxes can drop-off their ballots in person!
House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) insisted voter suppression is the only way Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden loses against President Donald Trump.
Clyburn claimed he has complaints from people about this supposed suppression. He also doesn’t know that South Carolina has secure drop-off ballot boxes.
From Fox News:
“I have had complaints all day today,” Clyburn told Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum on the “Democracy 2020 Election Preview Special”. “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 added.
Blah blah blah. Same thing over and over.
MacCallum reminded Clyburn that voters can drop-off their ballots in secure boxes.
Clyburn feigned ignorance:
“South Carolina has got voter drop boxes?” Clyburn asked. “I wish you would show them to me. I’ve been in South Carolina for all of my 80 years. We do not have voter drop boxes. That is how lies get out.”
“Well, it is my understanding that every state has them,” MacCallum responded. “If South Carolina doesn’t, that is a big question that South Carolina should address immediately, because it is my understanding that every state has them.”
Clyburn continued to show his lack of knowledge because he whined that “the legislature would not approve” the drop boxes.

Yes, your state has drop-off boxes, sir. Not every county has the boxes, but it looks like people can hand in their ballots in person:
The Richland County Elections Office told News19 voters can drop off ballots at their main and satellite locations.
Director Alexandria Stephens said, “[voters] need to locate a poll worker and more than likely it’ll be someone outside doing curbside. Some of the locations like 2020 Hampton Street, we have a tent with the ballot box outside, and of course it’s being manned. You can just drive up where the tent is and drop your ballot off.”
Sumter County has two separate lines for voting in-person and returning ballots at the County Court House.
“There’s no waiting in line for bringing your ballot in… You are to bring your ballot up, have it plopped in and dropped off. There is no wait,” said Director Patricia Jefferson.
Jefferson added that people will have to come inside the Court House.
“We don’t have a drop box. We want to capture those that are coming in. There’s someone at the backdoor of the Court House who is checking your temperature before entering the building and they’ll give you directions,” said Jefferson.
Lexington County has their ballot drop off outside.
Director of Elections and Voter Registration, Mary Brack, said, “we have a table outside with a secure ballot box that the people are able to bring their ballots to us. There is a person at the table that will verify their names.”
Brack also said they prefer people to drop off their ballots at their main elections office but if someone needs to do it at one of their satellite locations, that’s okay too.
Clyburn also said he would pray for black people who vote for Trump instead of Biden because the Democratic Party owns the black community:
“I don’t know where those polls come from … ” Clyburn responded. “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.”
Trump called one black woman a “dog” so I guess that means Trump thinks of all black people are dogs.
Baier quickly pointed out the Democratic Party’s habit of demeaning black people for having a free mind and voting against the party.
“What I said was. any man that calls one of my three daughters a dog, I would never vote for them, and I don’t understand any Black man that would vote for anybody that refers to a Black woman [that way],” Clyburn maintained. “All of us that I know are sons of Black women. I don’t stand for that kind of insult for my mothers, my sisters or my children.”
Trump didn’t call your daughter a dog, sir. He called one black woman a dog. Was it childish and stupid? Yes, but give me a break.
I guess when someone insults a ginger that person hates all gingers.DONATE
