Kamala Harris is considered the frontrunner for the Democrat Party Presidential nomination.
Some even believe she is the strongest candidate to take on Donald Trump.
But that all changed when Harris was asked the one question that caused all hell to break loose.
Harris seized on the Jussie Smollettgate crime hoax to claim Smollett was the victim of a “modern day lynching.”
However, Chicago police now believe Smollett faked the whole incident by paying two brothers to stage the attack.
Reporters called Harris to account for her remarks on a campaign stop.
Harris played dumb and pretended not to now know what anyone was talking about.
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) on her tweet saying the Jussie Smollett case was an “attempted modern-day lynching”:
“Which tweet? What tweet? … [laughs] Um, ah, ah, uh, okay, so I will say this about that case, I think the facts are still unfolding and um, I’m very, um, concerned” pic.twitter.com/qKwI2lewzR

The Smollett hoax exposes another big weakness for the Democrat Party heading into 2020.
Their base is so tied up in identity politics and social justice that the gravitational pull of their coalition demands presidential hopefuls weigh in with the strongest statements possible about these so-called hate crimes.
But so many of them turn out to be hoaxes that it makes the Left look detached from reality and that they are nothing more than a roving outrage mob looking for the next victim no matter what the facts are.
The Democrats’ obsession with identity politics helped elect Donald Trump in 2016.
An even more extreme Democrat Party slavishly devoted to race and gender grievance politics will be primed for defeat in 2020.
