Federalist: Kamala Harris, recently named as Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s pick for vice president, supported “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett when he staged a hoax assault against himself.
In 2019, Harris tweeted her sympathies about Smollett, who falsely claimed to be the victim of a hate crime. Harris said that what happened to Smollett was a “modern day lynching.”
“@JussieSmollett is one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know. I’m praying for his quick recovery. 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,” she tweeted in January 2019. more
