Elon Musk dragged an embarrassing skeleton from Democrat President Joe Biden’s closet last night on Twitter.
Musk mocked Biden for a social media post that the president made about disgraced actor Jussie Smollett.
The Twitter boss responded to a resurfaced post from Biden that said: “What happened today to Jussie Smollett must never be tolerated in this country.
“We must stand up and demand that we no longer give this hate safe harbor; that homophobia and racism have no place on our streets or in our hearts.
“We are with you, Jussie.”

Smollett is not going quietly and taking his good luck with him but is demanding a new trial for his conviction for orchestrating a fake hate crime attack that blamed Trump supporters.
Despite being convicted of the crime a sentenced to 150 days in jail, Smollett was released in under a week, thanks to his friends in high places.
Smollett’s lawyers are arguing in the Illinois First District Appellate Court that trial judge James Linn was prejudiced against them.
They claim Linn sandbagged their work during cross-examination and let prosecutors strike a disproportionate amount of potential black jurors and a gay juror.
His lawyers also make the shocking argument that Linn went too far at sentencing by claiming he took “on a personal retributive tone, based on speculative information”
The filing says:
“From the very start of the circuit court’s order granting the appointment of a special prosecutor, Judge Toomin explicitly, unequivocally, and improperly set forth an opinion that Mr. Smollett was, in fact, guilty of charges which a) Mr. Smollett specifically pled not guilty to, and b) which, at the time of the appointment, had been duly dismissed.
“More importantly, Illinois courts have repeatedly held that a police department or other government agency is not considered a ‘victim’ within the meaning of the restitution statute.
“Mr. Smollett’s Constitutional rights to due process and to a fair trial were denied by prosecutorial misconduct including allegations that a defense witness was pressured to change his statement, two distinct Doyle violations during trial, and shifting the burden during closing arguments.
“A prosecutor may be considered to have shifted the burden of proof by suggesting to the jury that the defendant was obligated to present evidence at trial.
“Here, in rebuttal closing arguments, the prosecutor argued, ‘Mr. Uche gave you no evidence of any video that was missing.’
“This comment is the equivalent to asking ‘where’s the evidence.’
“By arguing to the jury that the counsel for the defendant failed to prove a fact or produce evidence that defendant had absolutely no burden to prove, the prosecutor implied that Mr. Smollett was required to prove his own innocence.
“That implication alone is sufficient to result in substantial prejudice to the defendant,” the filing says.
