On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, Pardes Seleh from Mediaite joined me discuss the "hate crime" attack on actor Jussie Smollett that turned out to be a hoax. The gay, black, Jewish performer who was charged yesterday by Chicago police with orchestrating it himself.
Smollett's lies not only defamed the city of Chicago and Trump supporters everywhere, they almost lead to the imprisonment of innocent men!
Smollett earns $65,000 per episode on Empire, making him richer and more "privileged" than the average American. But he knew he'd make more if he could cast himself as the victim of violent conservatives, and the media was happy to uncritically spread his lies.
WATCH my interview with Pardes to see how Jussie Smollett's sloppy execution of this hoax may land him in prison.
