Democratic 2020 presidential candidate Kamala Harris was asked on Monday about her tweet late last month claiming the alleged attack on Jussie Smollett “was an attempted modern day lynching.”
She started stuttering and stammering in response.

“Um, uh, OK. So I will say this about that case,” Harris said. “I think the facts are unfolding, and I’m very concerned about obviously [inaudible],” she said. The Fox News broadcast cut out the audio before she finished her sentence.
