Democrat presidential candidates like Cory Booker and Kamala Harris have already backpedaled in their own ways on previous comments concerning Jussie Smollett’s claims that he was the victim of a hate crime. Up next this week, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand:
I asked Senator Kirsten Gillibrand if she wanted to amend her original statement on Jussie Smollett. Here’s what she said: pic.twitter.com/qBUPZPWmrZ

One more time. The shot:
This is a sickening and outrageous attack, and horribly, it's the latest of too many hate crimes against LGBTQ people and people of color. We are all responsible for condemning this behavior and every person who enables or normalizes it. Praying for Jussie and his family. https://t.co/eylvxhLT0u

And the chaser:
She didn’t seem too interested in finding out the facts before issuing a statement the first time. What gives? *Eye roll*
Why were so many ok with commenting without knowing the facts when there were no facts, but not ok with commenting without knowing the facts when the facts have started to surface??!! https://t.co/0h5S1tHNht

Count Gillibrand among those who only want the “facts” that fit the narrative.
