Democrat 2020 hopeful Kamala Harris was speechless when she was confronted about her comments of Jussie Smollett’s alleged attack. Harris called it a modern day lynching, but now evidence proves it was a hoax and she refuses to retract.
Kamala Harris initially tweeted after Smollett claims he was attacked.
“Jussie Smollett is one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know. I’m praying for his quick recovery,” she said on Twitter. “This was an attempted modern day lynching. No one should have to fear for their life because of their sexuality or color of their skin. We must confront this hate.”
Since evidence has been exposed that Jussie Smollett staged the hoax with his two Nigerian friends Harris and other Democrats are getting calls to retract their statements.
Harris was asked about her statements since the new evidence and she responded back in refusing to retract.
Which tweet? What tweet?” Harris responded after a reporter asked her about her modern day lynching comment.
Harris continued, “Um … I … I … Okay, so I will say this about that case, the facts are still unfolding, and, um, I’m very, um, concerned about obviously, the initial, um, allegation that he made about what might have happened. And it’s something we should all take seriously whenever anyone, um, alleges that kind of behavior, but there should be an investigation. And I think that once the investigation has concluded then we can all comment, but I’m not going to comment until I know the outcome of the investigation.”
RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel Tweeted the video, “Kamala Harris had no problem using inflammatory rhetoric to tie the #JussieSmollettHoax to @realDonaldTrump & his supporters,” tweeted McDaniel. “Now that she has the facts, why can’t she even remember her divisive language? Why is she giggling about it?”
