U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn could find himself in hot water.
A flippant response the Columbia Democrat made to reporters while walking in the Capitol is drawing the ire of many.
When asked about sexual harassment allegations against colleague Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), Clyburn seemed to suggest elected officials should be held to a different standard than other public figures.
In a video posted on Twitter, the 77-year-old Clyburn is walking to an elevator with Congressional Black Caucus chairman Cedric Richmond (D-La.), when asked Other men in other industries have faced similar accusations and gotten out of the way, resign, stepped down, far faster than he has, right Harvey Weinstein, Charlie Rose, Matt Lauer?
A writer for The New York Times Magazine and National Geographic tweeted that Clyburn invoked the name of Susan Smith, South Carolinas infamous child murderer, in his defense of Conyers.
James Clyburn compared Conyers accusers to the child murderer Susan Smith, who initially claimed a black man had abducted her kids. Clyburn said, these are all white women whove made these charges against Conyers, Robert Draper tweeted.
When asked if that comment was true, Draper said he verified it through two sources, adding Clyburn has used the Susan Smith parallel more than once, to members & staffers.

Yup if a white female accuses a black man she is a lying slut. (Take note stupid white females, BLM does not have your back.) Now in all other cases the female is to be believed not matter what the evidence or lack of it says.
Here is a tip for Clyburn. Not every thought that pops into your head goes into your mouth.
Imagine if Trump tweeted that Conyers was not credible because he was black.
OMG...all hell would break loose.
Susan Smith did to her Children what Ted Kennedy did to Mary Jo.
You remember Senator Ted Kennedy, he was the Lion of the Democrat Senate who is also responsible for the Immigration debacle we see today.
I can’t remember who Ted blamed, Mary Jo perhaps?
