Almost three and a half years later, Smollett has now dug a hole so deep, that he apparently thinks the best approach is to keep on going and maybe eventually come out the other side. Meanwhile, those of us who still have a handle on reality are left to either shake our heads in disgust or perhaps laugh. On one hand, Smollett’s antics are pathetic and illustrative of a society that incentivizes victimhood while ignoring facts. But on the other hand, his denials are becoming laugh-out-loud funny.
Jussie Smollett Hoax
In the case of Jussie Smollett, the saga that has evolved this last year has been more of a comedy than the drama Smollett had written and acted out. Every facet of this case proved the hoax that Smollett attempted to perpetrate on the American public. In an almost smug disregard for the truth and the common sense of everyone familiar with the case, he insisted on defending his innocence.
Knucklehead Of The Week: Everyone Accepts That Jussie Smollett Is Guilty… Except For Jussie Smollett
Former Empire actor Jussie Smollett should have complied with The First Rule of Holes, which states: “When you’re in one, stop digging.” And while there are many reasons to honor Mr. Smollett as this week’s top knucklehead, it is his insistence on ignoring reality which we cite as the top rationale.
Let’s say it’s early February 2019, and you’re a Robin Roberts or a Chris Cuomo (a pre-firing Fredo) and you retrieve your brain from where you checked it at the station door. You subsequently realize that Smollett’s story is about as plausible as Slick Willie’s saying “I did not have sex with that woman Monica Lewinsky.” You then report on the manifold holes in it. The result?
Hunter’s laptop alone is a goldmine of wrongdoings that would get an ordinary citizen locked up. His shakedowns of foreign governments for access to his father, the Senator, the Vice President, and the President should be enough to launch an investigation but not today. He is protected from the Justice Department, and the msm is turning a blind eye. Nothing to see here. Move along.
When capitalists die, they hope they go to heaven. When socialists die, they hope they go to communism. And Democrats like Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) have been beating the drum for years now about how great socialism is. Cuba’s uprising is wholly contradictory to their narrative which is why their messaging is so peculiar.
