WATCH: Democrat Rep Issues Insane Claim About Why He Has To Stay In Power

This past Sunday, Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC) made the insane claim that it was very “necessary” for him to “stay in power” due to it being “Biblical” for him.

82-year-old Clyburn issued these statements as part of the Sunday edition of “Face The Nation” on CBS News alongside host Margaret Brennan.

“Democrats are holding leadership elections in the coming week, you’re already in leadership, I know you will be standing for election to a different position,” stated Brennan.

“But if it is time for a new generation as Speaker Pelosi had said, Why do you think it’s necessary for you to stay in power?” she posited. “Do you think the next generation needs you to guide them?”

“Well, I’ve always said there is a healthy respect, it’s Biblical with me,” answered Clyburn. “We need to have a healthy blend of strength and knowledge and look at our leadership.”

“The South is left out of it and what I’m doing is trying to make sure that we do not tilt too far to the east or too far to the west,” his rant continued. “But maintain what we have here. There’s no other southerner among the leadership ranks and we need the south. We need these historically black colleges and universities. If it weren’t for Georgia, where would the Senate be today? And the last time I checked, Georgia is south of South Carolina.”

MARGARET BRENNAN: Democrats are holding leadership elections in the coming week, you’re already in leadership, I know you will be standing for election to a different position. But if it is time for a new generation as Speaker Pelosi had said, Why do you think it’s necessary for you to stay in power? Do you think the next generation needs you to guide them?

REP. CLYBURN: Well, I’ve always said there is a healthy respect, it’s Biblical with me. We need to have a healthy blend of strength and knowledge and look at our leadership. The South is left out of it and what I’m doing is trying to make sure that we do not tilt too far to the east or too far to the west. But maintain what we have here. There’s no other southerner among the leadership ranks and we need the south. We need these historically black colleges and universities. If it weren’t for Georgia, where would the Senate be today? And the last time I checked, Georgia is south of South Carolina.
