Jury selection for the trial of former “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett begins today. Smollett’s accused of staging a hate crime hoax in Chicago:

Today the “official” trial of actor Jussie Smollett begins with jury selection. You may recall, his original charges of lying to police were infamously dropped. But, then a special prosecutor was assigned and he was re-charged.

And with that, perhaps Smollett’s attorneys could call Vice President Kamala Harris as a character witness. Almost immediately after Smollett claimed to be the victim of a racist attack, Harris didn’t wait for the facts to start doing her thing:

The tweet is still up:
.@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.

Perhaps the VP is waiting for the trial outcome before considering deletion. Stay tuned!

This didn’t play well any more than her bailing out terrorists in the BLM riots. She has no judgement when she can only see race and side with darker skin color https://t.co/lbiMpmhzpe

And Harris wasn’t alone when it comes to assuming Smollett’s claim was factual from the start.
Were Kamala Harris and Cory Booker in on the Jussie Smollett hoax?
