Georgia State Rep. Erica Thomas and her claims about what a man told her at a grocery store seem to have taken a turn against the lefty narrative that immediately developed. The “white man” who Thomas said told her to “go back” where she came from turned out to be a Cuban immigrant and a Democrat who has defended AOC and her “squad” against Trump’s “racist” tweets.

Lieu must have decided to shoot first and ask questions later:
