Jussie Smollett probably isn’t preening for the press now.
Or, considering how utterly divorce from reality he is, particularly in light of his astoundingly false testimony in court, perhaps he is still preening …
In spite of the fact that a jury just convicted him of five of six charges that had been levied against him in connection with staging a fake hate crime attack.
Specifically, Smollett paid two Nigerian brothers $3,500 to beat him up, so that Smollett could subsequently report a “hate crime” to the police.
As if thugs are interested in commencing a fight outside at 2 a.m. during a polar vortex, but that was Smollett’s story and he was sticking to it. And he kept sticking to it, even during his own ill-advised self-defense.
After one day of deliberations, the jury clearly concluded that Smollett staged a fake hate crime on himself to make a pathetic statement against Trump, only for it to backfire spectacularly upon him.
Even worse, Smollett also unwisely took the stand during his trial, where he proceeded to continue lying to the jury and insisted that he had been the victim of a real attack.
As for the $3,500 wired to the Nigerian brothers who took part in the plot?
Smollett claimed that cash was intended for “exercise” and meals provided by the Nigerian duo so that he could allegedly improve his appearance for the small screen.
No wonder Special Prosecutor Dan Webb tore the arrogant Smollett to shreds.
“[Smollett] faked a hate crime and then lied to the police about it and then compounded his crimes by lying to the jury during the course of this trial and insulting their intelligence …
With the resounding verdict we just received from this jury after one day of deliberations in which they found Mr. Smollett guilty on virtually all charges of doing exactly what we said he did – reporting a fake crime to the Chicago Police Department as a real crime. That verdict was a resounding message by the jury that, in fact, Mr. Smollett did exactly what we said he did.” [Source: Fox News]
Was it ever.
After all, consider some of Smollett’s rather stunning testimony over the course of the trial, notably when he was confronted about messages shared with the Nigerian brothers via Instagram.

Ah, heaven forbid!
How dare the court not take into account Smollett’s 5 million followers! Surely, that remark alone means he should be exonerated!
Unbelievable, but apparently that’s what a false sense of fame does to someone who clearly borders below average in intelligence while having a laughably large ego.
Fortunately, Webb clearly triumphed, as evidenced by the jury’s verdict.
Webb also ladled praise upon the Chicago Police Department, which all too often has borne the brunt of abuse from the media, the government, and various protected groups, such as BLM.
However, the department excelled in providing ample evidence for Smollett’s trial.
“What [the Chicago Police Department] did on this case was extraordinary police work, and the fact that this jury convicted him on virtually all counts was based on testimony from Chicago Police officers and the two Osundairo brothers. And I believe it’s a complete vindication of everything the Chicago Police Department did to thoroughly and conscientiously investigate this case.” [Source: Fox News]
Too bad that Biden, Harris, and all the other leftists had to immediately jump on Jussie’s side in 2019 before an iota of evidence was released to the public, as evidenced by Biden’s absurd commentary on the indicent.
“What happened today to @JussieSmollett 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.” [Source: Fox News]
Of course the Biden administration is “with Jussie.” After all, it’s one of the most pro-criminal administrations in modern history.
Biden’s remarks, of course, set the tone for mainstream media, which was beside itself with the abuse of poor Jussie, at least until his deception could no longer be in doubt. Just consider the weeping from the Chicago Tribune over an incident that never happened.
“How well do we know Chicago? It seems that every time we think we’ve got our city figured out, something happens that proves we are actually clueless about who Chicago really is …
Our faith was put to the test last week when news broke that supporters of President Donald Trump may have attempted what some have called ‘a modern-day lynching’ on the streets of one of the most politically progressive cities in the country.” [Source: Chicago Tribune]
Yeah. In light of the outcome of the trial, how “well” does anyone know a Democrat city indeed.
Trump Derangement Syndrome has consequences …
