According to Page Six, they have a witness that says the Mueller grand jury looks like a Black Lives Matter or Bernie Sanders rally!
The federal grand jury handing down indictments for special counsel Robert Mueller doesn’t appear to include any supporters of President Donald Trump, according to one witness who recently testified before the panel.
“The grand jury room looks like a Bernie Sanders rally,” my source said. “Maybe they found these jurors in central casting, or at a Black Lives Matter rally in Berkeley [Calif.]”
Of the 20 jurors, 11 are African-Americans and two were wearing “peace T-shirts,” the witness said. “There was only one white male in the room, and he was a prosecutor.” Mueller was not present.
Some on the left were angry that the statement sounded kiiiiiiinda racist:

While other liberals were happy about it:
Only one white male. Can you say karma!

It’s kind of all over the place.
I guess I’d say no one should be shocked a jury chosen in Washington D.C. would be more African-American than white, that’s the racial composition of the city. But liberals shouldn’t be shocked that some on the right might think that such a jury might be unfair – they are the ones who proudly scream that blacks vote in the 90th percentile for Democrats and for Hillary in the last election.
2018 is gonna be 2017 on steroids.
