[BREAKING] Graham Won’t Take COVID Test, South Carolina Debate Canceled


The second debate between incumbent South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham and his challenger, Jaime Harrison, was canceled late Friday afternoon after Graham refused to take a COVID19 test beforehand. Graham was considered the loser of their first debate, where he seemed unsteady on his feet, occasionally slurring his words, and telling the debate audience that if they have a problem with term limits, they could end his on November 3rd.

#LindseyGrahamHasCovid was trending Friday evening as word spread about Graham’s refusal to take the test, the only reason the debate has been canceled. Either Graham suspects he has COVID19 or he knows for a fact that he already has it. He has not provided any real reasons for not taking the test, instead using classic GOP projection language techniques in an attempt to divert attention away from himself and place blame on his opponent.

Harrison responded to Graham’s accusations, asking why the Senator won’t take the test, which would clear him to debate.

Graham’s refusal to cooperate with the debate commission echoes Donald Trump’s own attempts to cancel the next Presidential Debate, which the commission wanted to hold remotely to keep with COVID19 safety protocols.

Twitter users were more than happy to try to connect the dots as the Senator remained silent.
