Numerous Democrats are being mocked on social media as a result of Jussie Smollett’s guilty verdict in which he clearly staged a fake hate crime.
Some of the notable Democrats are people such as Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, and members of the ‘Squad.’
People on Twitter are digging up old tweets and commenting on them, making sure the people who supported Smollett during his hoax are called out for it.
Kamala Harris, who is now Vice President and has a low approval rating, once said: “Jussie Smollett 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.
Cory Booker said at one point: “The vicious attack on actor Jussie Smollett was an attempted modern-day lynching. I’m glad he’s safe. To those in Congress who don’t feel the urgency to pass our Anti-Lynching bill designating lynching as a federal hate crime– I urge you to pay attention.”
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said: “There is no such thing as “racially charged.” This attack was not “possibly” homophobic. It was a racist and homophobic attack. If you don’t like what is happening to our country, then work to change it. It is no one’s job to water down or sugar-coat the rise of hate crimes.”
Rashida Tlaib said: “When one of the most famous black and gay men in America is not safe, the message is clearer than it has ever been.” The dangerous lies spewing from the right wing is killing & hurting our people. Thinking of you @JussieSmollett , and my LGBTQ neighbors.”
