Why Jussie Smollett is a liar

I have been following this narrative for a while. Here are my initial thoughts when the story broke.

Initial Behavioral Inconsistencies

  • He claims to have fought off two attackers but does not have injuries consistent with a vicious attack. What happened?
  • He claims that the assailants said “This is MAGA country”. He subsequently denied saying this. In which universe is Chicago “MAGA Country”?
  • He claims to have fought off two attackers with tuna sandwich in one hand and a phone in the other. How did he do this?
  • He had his phone with him, but did not call the police until forty minutes later, after he got home. Why did he wait for so long to report a crime?
  • He finally called the police about twenty minutes later, after he got home. Why so long? Why didn’t he call the cops on the spot?
  • He claims that the attackers placed a “noose” around his neck, but was still “wearing” it when the police arrived. Why would he keep it on?

Meeting the police

  • Smollett claimed that he was on the phone with his manager when the attack occurred… at 2AM?
  • …but when asked for his phone, he didn’t turn it over immediately. When he finally did, some of the phone numbers had been “redacted”, ostensibly in order to protect the privacy of contacts and people who are not relevant to the attack. Why do you think that you get to decide what evidence is and is not “relevant”?

*Sigh*, first Cavanaugh, now this. Given the total lack of evidence and questionable behavior of the alleged victim, I am convinced that Jussie Smollet is a liar.

Time will tell.
