Today I was verbally assaulted in the grocery store by a white man who told me I was a lazy SOB and to go back to where I came from bc I had to many items in the express lane. My husband wasn’t there to defend me because he is on Active Duty serving the country I came from USA!

Can we say Jussie Smollett, folks? Media, once again, didn’t bother to get his story before spreading it everywhere. Bring on the tape…
As Twitchy reported earlier Saturday, Patricia Arquette, Tom Arnold, Bill de Blasio, and Rep. Ted Lieu all expressed their disgust at Georgia State Rep. Erica Thomas being “verbally assaulted” in a grocery checkout lane by a white man who told her to go back to where she came from — of course he’d say exactly that, because he’s an obvious MAGA drone who repeats President Trump’s controversial tweets right on schedule.
BuzzFeed News was right on it:
And it turns out he’s Cuban and a lifelong Democrat. Oops. Although maybe not, after this.
Eric Sparkes "told [Channel 2's Christian Jennings] he is a lifelong Democrat and of Cuban nationality."https://t.co/A0tDJzztWD
That is not mentioned in this AP article: White man denies saying ‘Go back where you came from’https://t.co/XLyqYStnbs
