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.

CNN’s Jim Acosta Questioned About FakeNews Bernstein/Sciutto Cohen Report

“Oh, nooo’s!! No comment,” says Jim.

CNN’s Sr. White House Correspondent, Jim Acosta, had no comment today when asked about Breitbart’s lead story, “Another Very Fake News Scandal Engulfs CNN with Fake Michael Cohen Russia Story“.

Another very fake news scandal has engulfed CNN as the network’s credibility crisis reaches another fever pitch just over a year after three senior network staffers were forced to resign in disgrace over a similar scandal.

This time, though, famed Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein is at the center of the scandal, and the network for now is dug in despite deep criticism from across the political and ideological spectrum as far-ranging as Breitbart News and Daily Caller among others on one side, and the Associated Press, Washington Post, BuzzFeed, and more on the other.
