Chicago Police Superintendent Blasts Democrat Politicians, Celebrities and Fake News Pundits For Pushing Smollett Hoax (VIDEO)
Chicago Police held a press conference Thursday morning on the Jussie Smollett hate hoax after the actor’s arrest.
The Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said he’s “offended and angry” over Jussie Smollett’s hate hoax crime while he delivered an emotional press conference.
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.
Kamala Harris 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.
