The Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said he’s “offended and angry” over Jussie Smollett’s hate hoax. He didn’t reserve all of his anger for Smollett. He also took on Democrats, Celebrities and liberal media outlets who immediately jumped into the fray and echoed Smollett’s lies.
The Chicago police put in a tremendous amount of man hours going over surveillance tapes and just plain good old police work. They didn’t need the extra pressure to find the attackers, when they suspected from the beginning that there were no attackers.
How many people do you think still believe Smollett, even though he has been arrested?
Mr. Johnson blasted Smollett’s staged attack as “shameful” then ripped into the Democrat politicians, celebrities and fake news pundits who all pushed the Jussie Smollett hoax whilst attacking millions of “racist” Trump supporters — all without any evidence a crime actually occurred.
“This publicity stunt was a scar that Chicago didn’t earn and certainly did not deserve,” Mr. Johnson said, adding, “To make things worse, the accusations within this phony attack received national attention for weeks. Celebrities, news commentators and even presidential candidates weighed in on something that was choreographed by an actor.”
“The stunt was orchestrated by Smollett because he was dissatisfied with his salary,” Superintendent Johnson added.

2020 Dem hopefuls Sen. Cory Booker and Sen. Kamala Harris both immediately rushed to judgment after Jussie Smollett claimed white racist Trump supporters ambushed him with bleach and a noose.
Cory Booker called Smollett’s hate hoax a “modern-day lynching.”
Celebrities such as Alyssa Milano jumped into the mix and slammed Trump supporters following the hate hoax.
The Democrats and media have fallen for two huge hoaxes this year, Covington and now Smollett — and it’s only February.
