“What’s really appalling is Lindsey Graham who said there is no systemic racism,” Behar raged, demanding that someone “give him a globe” after he the GOP politician reportedly said “America’s not a racist country.”

“What the heck happened to this guy?” she went on, noting that “tokenism” would not solve the issue of racism in America.

“[It’s] what goes on in the lives of everyday people in this country,” Behar continued, citing the inequality when it came to “the school system, childcare, employment, [and] transportation.”

“I’m just appalled by Lindsay Graham,” she repeated. Likewise, her co-host Whoppi Goldberg weighed in on the senator’s comments and claimed it’s “very easy, Lindsey, to think there is no systemic racism.”

Graham allegedly cited the elections of former President Barack Obama and Vice President Kamala Harris, as African American, and Black and South Asian respectively, as proof that America and its systems were not discriminatory.

“Within every society you have bad actors,” he added.

Graham’s comments came several days after a jury convicted former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin on all charges relating to the death of George Floyd.

“The Chauvin trial was a just result,” Graham said of the court case.

“What’s happening in Ohio, where the police officer had to use deadly force to prevent a young girl from being stabbed to death, is a different situation in my view. So this attack on police and policing — reform the police, yes, call them all racist, no.”

“America is a work in progress,” he added.
