Lindsey Graham goes right into a tantrum and refuses to be examined for COVID

The debate moderators and his Democratic opponent Jaime Harrison have all agreed to be COVID tested before the debate, but Lindsey Graham declined.

Harrison tweeted:

I look forward to tomorrow's debate with @LindseyGrahamSC, but we need real leadership in this pandemic.

The debate moderators and I agreed to do a COVID test before the debate. I have my test scheduled and I tell Senator Graham to do the same.

Graham responded with a Twitter tantrum:

Mr. Harrison requested special treatment.

Besides Mr. Harrison, is there any other South Carolinian requesting that everyone they come in contact with be tested before they meet?

– Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) October 9, 2020

South Carolinians don't appreciate Harrison putting himself above others.

If Mr. Harrison is unable to interact with South Carolinians on the same terms that they live their lives on, then he shouldn't be their senator.

Why is Lindsey Graham refusing to be tested for the coronavirus?

The answer is that the confirmation hearings for Trump's Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett are set to begin next week. If Graham tests positive, these hearings do not take place.

Lindsey Graham decides to jeopardize the lives of everyone involved in the debate to hold confirmatory hearings for Supreme Court candidates.

Graham brings Donald Trump's request for another Supreme Court Justice to the health and safety of the people of South Carolina.

South Carolina deserves a senator who will take the pandemic seriously and put the people of South Carolina on their own political agenda.
