Sharpton Goes To Baltimore And Jussie Smollett Stays Home

Sharpton says Trump ‘playing race-divisive card,’ reports The Baltimore Sun.

Activist and media personality the Rev. Al Sharpton criticized President Donald Trump, who has posted multiple tweets bashing Baltimore and U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings, while attending an home ownership event Monday at a city church.

“He has a particular venom for blacks and people of color,” Sharpton said of Trump, speaking outside New Shiloh Baptist Church in West Baltimore. He stood in front of a banner bearing the logo of his National Action Network and the slogan “No Justice, No Peace.”

Chiraq No Go Zone

What’s the chance that Chicago will get any safer after these comments from the Cook County State’s Attorney, Kim Foxx, and her cohorts?  Maybe not so much.  The Chicago Tribune reports, “Chicago’s police union is ‘the sworn enemy of black people,’ Rep. Bobby Rush says after protest of Jussie Smollett case.

After a week of heated protests and calls for her resignation, Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx and African-American leaders condemned Chicago’s police union and defended how the prosecutor’s office addressed an actor’s alleged hate crime hoax.

Foxx vowed to remain at her post during a Saturday news conference, despite intense controversy sparked in March when her office dropped a 16-count indictment that accused television actor Jussie Smollett of orchestrating a racist and homophobic attack on himself to advance his career.

If Obama Had A Son… He’d Be Named Jussie and He’d Be ‘Free at Last’

And Mayor Rahm is Pissed…the ‘fix’ was in.

ABC News reports, “‘Empire’ actor Jussie Smollett charges dropped; Chicago mayor and top cop furious, as prosecutor admits he believes TV star fabricated attack.

In a stunning move, prosecutors in Chicago dropped all charges against “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett on Tuesday despite acknowleging Smollet fabricated a street attack on himself in an attempt to get a pay raise.

“We stand behind the investigation and the facts revealed,” said Joe Magats, the first assistant state attorney in Illinois, who took over the case when his boss, State Attorney Kim Foxx, recused herself from the probe after it surfaced that she had been in touch with Smollett’s family.

“We believe he did what he was charged with doing,” Magats said in an interview with ABC station WLS-TV in Chicago.

Asked again whether he believes Smollett fabricated the incident, Magats replied, “yes.”

Here are a few of our favorite Jussie Smollett memories.

Jussie Smollett – Don’t Pay For Your Hoax By Check – update

Jesse Smollett failed Rule 1 of Hate Hoax Perpetration – “Don’t write a check to your co-conspirator’s for services rendered.” 

The Chicago Tribune writes, “How a text from Jussie Smollett set in motion an alleged hoax that dragged ‘Chicago’s reputation through the mud’

Days before Jussie Smollett told police he was the victim of a vicious racist and homophobic attack, the “Empire” star sent a cautious text to a friend, Cook County prosecutors say.

“Might need your help on the low,” he messaged Abimbola “Abel” Osundairo, Smollett’s co-worker and alleged sometime ecstasy dealer. “You around to meet up and talk face to face?”

Smollett gave them a $100 bill to buy rope, ski masks, gloves and red baseball caps that would look like the “Make America Great Again” hat sported by Trump, Lanier said.

Two days later, she said, Smollett gave Abel a backdated personal check for $3,500.

Update: “America, let me just tell you something: Do not commit crimes with checks. If you’re going to break the law, do not write a check … get cash man,” Barkley told his TNT audience Thursday night as he tried his hardest to fight back laughs.  The Daily Caller.

Charles Barkley is hilarious here as he schools Jussie Smollett.
