Kamala Harris Jussie Smollett Modern Day Lynching

Kamala Harris was completely caught off guard when asked by a reporter about ‘Empire’ actor Jussie Smollett’s alleged hate hoax, after she called it a “modern day lynching” prior to Chicago police expressing doubt in the truthfulness of Smollett’s narrative.

Harris was questioned by media about whether she was too hasty regarding her remarks on the alleged hate crime hoax perpetrated by Smollett now that police have cast serious doubts on Smollett’s version of events.

On Twitter, the Democrat presidential candidate previously called the attack on Smollett “an attempted modern day lynching,” adding “we must confront this hate.” A Fox News reporter asked Harris whether she regretted the tweet, catching Harris off guard.

“Which tweet? What tweet?” Harris asked in response to the question. When the reporter started to clarify her question, Harris looked toward her campaign staff and laughed awkwardly.

Harris then elaborated with a rambling answer, “So I will say this about that case: I think that the facts are still unfolding, and I’m very concerned about obviously,” interrupting herself with several pauses and stammers before trailing off.

While Harris’s excuse of “the facts are still unfolding” may have been good enough for Fox News, it is worth noting that she first tweeted about the alleged hate crime only hours after it happened.

Smollett, an actor on the TV show ‘Empire’, claimed that he was beaten and attacked with bleach and a rope by two white men wearing Make America Great Again hats. Smollett refused to give police his cell phone, which could have proven his series of events, and refused further contact with the police.

After investigating, the Chicago Police Department revealed it believes the crime to be a hoax perpetuated by Smollett to persuade the producers of ‘Empire’ to keep his character in the show.

Big League Politics reported:

According to a Fox News reporter, “Empire” star Jussie Smollett is no longer considered a victim in what he alleged was a hate crime orchestrated against him by Trump supporters.

“CPD Spox: Jussie Smollett is no longer considered a victim in this case,” said Mike Tobin on Twitter.

Originally, Smollett claimed that he was attacked in the early morning by racist and homophobic Trump supporters who yelled slurs and “This is MAGA country” while they tied a rope around his neck, beat him, and poured bleach on him. Saturday, Chicago Police confirmed that his alleged “attackers” two Nigerian friends of Smollett’s, both extras on “Empire,” purchased the rope. There are unconfirmed reports that Smollett paid them to perpetrate the hoax.

While these facts already persuaded Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to delete her tweet decrying the fictional hate crime, Harris appears to be doubling down.

President Donald Trump Will Move the 2020 Republican Convention Out of North Carolina

The state had interfered in the convention.

Published

President Donald Trump confirmed that he will move the 2020 Republican Convention away from Charlotte, North Carolina in a series of tweets Tuesday night. The state’s Democratic governor, Roy Cooper, had refused to allow the Republican Party to conduct the event at full capacity, citing supposedly necessary coronavirus social distancing restrictions.

The event was slated to be held in late August, well after the apex of the national coronavirus epidemic. Cooper still refused to allow the Republican Party to proceed with its plans to hold a full-sized major party political convention.

The loss of the Republican convention is set to cost North Carolina millions of dollars in revenue for the state’s economy. Major party conventions are regularly sought by governors and mayors, but it appears that Cooper’s desire to restrict the GOP convention overrode his desire for the benefits of the event.

The President had earlier been threatening to move the convention if North Carolina failed to give the Republican Party the green light to proceed in organizing for its convention as planned.

Sources indicate that GOP officials are already scouting out potential alternative locations for the party’s convention. Early reports suggest that either Arizona or Florida could be selected as possible replacement locations for the event, with both states set to be competitive electoral battlegrounds in the fall presidential election.

Arizona Republican Debbie Lesko called for the RNC to move the convention to her Glendale-area district, and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has suggested that the state would be willing to welcome the President and Republicans across the country for the crucial political event.
