(ThePatriotSource.com)- House Majority Whip James Clyburn, a Democrat representing South Carolina, told Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC on Friday that he is fearful rapper Kanye West will take votes away from the Democrats in November. It comes as West continues his chaotic campaign to become the next president of the United States, despite missing the deadline to appear on the ballots of many important states.
Clyburn told Andrea Mitchell Reports that he believes there is no doubt that the Trump campaign has assisted West in getting onto the ballots to take votes from the Biden campaign. If that’s true – and it’s a big claim – then it really is little more than an exercise in giving people who might normally vote Democrat an opportunity not to vote for a racist like Joe Biden. Did you see the clip where he said black people don’t have diversity of attitude?
Mitchell asked Clyburn about West, and how he is now on the ballot on Oklahoma and Colorado. She said that there are reports of how a Republican operative from Trump’s campaign delivered his petitions in Washington, and that President Trump winning three states in 2016 by tens of thousands of votes could make West’s candidacy impactful.
“Could this be a Trump campaign effort to try to siphon off votes from Joe Biden in battleground states?” Mitchell asked.
“I don’t think there’s any question about that,” he responded. “I think we all saw what was going on there in Wisconsin, where he was getting help getting on the ballot. But, you know, African-Americans, most especially, know what this campaign is all about. They’ve seen these kinds of tactics before.”
Clyburn went on to say that he’s seen in South Carolina how “this whole Russia influence” was a “trial run” in his state.
“We fell victim to it when we didn’t know where it was coming from or what was going on,” he continued. “We now know, and we’re not going to make that mistake again. If you fool me once, that shame is on you. You fool me twice, that shame would be on me. We ain’t going to be shamed in this election.”
Maybe not, because if vote-by-mail is implemented then the Democrats can win through fraud.
