Turns out Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel wanted Jussie to pay $130,000 to pay for the cost of investigating the claim that two men in Trump hats assaulted Jussie while shouting, “This is MAGA country.”
Now, I’ve believed from the beginning that Jussie was lying. But once the prosecutors decided to drop the charges against him, it was over. Jussie beat the case. And as bad as y’all feel about letting a brother off the hook, y’all gotta let it go. Cause if you can’t prove in court that he committed the crime, why should he have to pay for the investigation?
I know y’all hate to see brothers get away with stuff. That’s why you kept going after OJ after he was acquitted. That’s why you put an 80 year old blind man in prison for crimes that went back decades. And that’s why y’all got federal investigators looking at Jussie Smollett—essentially because he lied.
The president lie every day. I don’t see him going to jail, getting fingerprinted, or facing a shakedown from a city that couldn’t win a case. Yet all these things happened to Jussie Smollett, and I’m at the point where I feel like y’all need to leave him alone.
