On Friday, Jen Psaki finally admitted what we’ve all known for 2 years – Jussie Smollett is a lying race hoaxer.
After the jury found him guilty on 5 of 6 accounts yesterday, Psaki was forced to admit that Smollett lied. She even reluctantly called him “shameful”.
“Then, a real quick one on the Jussie Smollett verdict,” a reporter began. “Both the President and the Vice President tweeted at the time of that attack, the President tweeted: ‘What happened to Jussie Smollett must never be tolerated in this country. We’re with you, Jussie.’ The Vice President called it an attempted modern-day lynching. Since the guilty verdict, are there any lessons learned here in rushing to judgment when a crime is alleged?” she asked.
“I think there are lessons learned perhaps for everybody who commented at the time, including former President Trump,” Psaki began, trying to immediately invoke Trump to deflect the conversation.
“I wish April Ryan was here because I think she asked him the question. Do I see her somewhere, or no? Okay. She just left. Where he said, ‘I can tell you that it’s horrible, it doesn’t get worse’ in response to her question about Jussie Smollett at the time. I would say that we respect the jury’s decision. Lying to the police, particularly about something as heinous as a hate crime is shameful,” the far-left press secretary said.
