They're both 'ragheads.'
At least that's what South Carolina state Sen. Jake Knotts believes. On an internet live-streaming show about South Carolina politics, Pub Politics, Knotts known for his sometimes outlandish language let loose on Haley who is running for governor. Knotts is supporting another candidate.
"We got a raghead in Washington; we don’t need one in South Carolina,” Knotts said, according to CNN. “She’s a raghead that’s ashamed of her religion trying to hid it behind being Methodist for political reasons." (Pub Politics editors refused to post the video on Friday.)
Haley was raised in a Sikh family but is now a practicing Methodist. President Obama’s father is from Africa. His mother is a white woman from Kansas. He is a practicing Christian.
