Tennessee Democrat Jim Cooper Attacks People With Down Syndrome To Mock Republican Voters – By Jordan Davidson (The Federalist) / Nov 23 2020
Democrat Rep. Jim Cooper of Tennessee attempted to insult Republican voters in South Carolina by likening them to people with Down syndrome.
In a recent interview published in The Nashville Scene, Cooper said South Carolina voters have “extra chromosomes” for supporting South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham’s re-election instead of choosing Democratic candidate Jaime Harrison.
“You’re probably talking about Jaime Harrison, who was an outstanding candidate. But that is South Carolina. I’ve said for years that they have extra chromosomes, South Carolina voters,” Cooper stated. “Anybody who could re-elect Lindsey Graham after his two-faced performance on federal judges, they have a tolerance that I can’t imagine.”
While many media outlets and polls predicted that Harrison would give Graham a literal run for his money, the sitting senator won the Nov. 3 election and his seat by more than a 10 percent margin.
