Clay Travis: Why Isn't Twitter Banning Biden, Harris For Smollett Misinformation?

Now that actor Jussie Smollett has been found guilty of merely playing the role of someone who experienced a hate crime, OutKick founder Clay Travis wants to know why Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have been proclaimed innocent by Twitter.

After all, it was Biden that tweeted major support for Smollett back when the made-up incident occurred. "We are with you, Jussie," Biden wrote.

Harris, of course, took it even further.

"Jussie Smollett is one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know. I'm praying for his quick recovery," she tweeted. "This was an attempted modern day lynching. ... We must confront this hate."

Hate, huh? More like flat-out lies.

Yet, both the tweets from Biden and Harris remained after the Smollett verdict. So much for shutting down the accounts of world leaders for spreading misinformation, Clay tweeted.

This is something no one from the mainstream media has brought up. After all, you don't your president to be duped. And if he is, it's best just to ignore it.

As for Smollett, he is looking at up to three years in prison for the one acting job he couldn't pull off. Instead, it was just a pathetic attempt at a publicity stunt during a heated time for our country. A lie, solely to benefit his own fledgling career.

As relayed by OutKick's Alejandro Avila:

"Smollett’s story first appeared on Jan. 29, 2019, when the actor alleged being attacked by “White” men yelling homophobic remarks and “This is MAGA country” at the actor during his 2 a.m. trip to Subway. He returned to his apartment and alerted his associate, Frank Gatson.
"Despite citing severe systemic racism embedded in America’s police system, Gatson called Chicago authorities to report the supposed incident. They arrived at the apartment and found Smollett wearing a noose around his neck, which his friend advised him to wear to present his report of the hate crime."

Smollett is getting what he deserves from the justice system, Clay wrote. And that's about the only thing to like about this troubling case.
