The comments in The Hill from South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn are a case of foot-in-mouth disease.

It’s hard to believe Clyburn thinks the way he does or if he’s just spewing whatever comes to mind.

He just told Holocaust survivors to check their privilege while defending the indefensible anti-Semitic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar.

He stepped in it, and it’ll be impossible to twist what he said to be acceptable to anyone who isn’t anti-Semitic.

“I’m serious about that. There are people who tell me, ‘Well, my parents are Holocaust survivors.’ ‘My parents did this.’ It’s more personal with her. I’ve talked to her, and I can tell you she is living through a lot of pain.”

Refugee camp vs. Death camp???

Social media is on fire with condemnation for Clyburn who tried to equate a refugee camp with a death camp. He deserves every bit of what’s coming his way.
