Liberals love hoaxes. From the Mueller hoax investigation go D-list celebrity Jussie Smollett’s false claim that he was attacked by Trump supporters in Chicago, Leftists rely on lies to advance their agendas — because lies are all they have.
The Empire actor decided he needed a bump in the press, so he claimed on Wednesday that he was attacked at 2 a.m. by the only two white Trump supporters in Chicago. Smollett says that they began “hurling racial and homophobic slurs,” poured bleach on him to “turn him white,” put a rope around his neck, and yelled “This is a MAGA country” — all without a single other person noticing.
Chicago Police have spent the past few days reviewing hundreds of hours of security camera footage but have not been able to find anyone white who was in the immediate area at the time of the alleged attack. And there’s a reason for that. He lied. And he now admits it.
“I am deeply sorry for any pain I caused,” Smollett said in an interview on MSNBC Thursday. “It started as a joke on Twitter and I made the bad decision of keeping it going once the story got attention.”
“I lied. I lied for no good reason,” he added. “And I will spend every day making up for it.”
The investigation into the fake hate crime has so far cost the city of Chicago $1.7 million. He can start by paying that back.
