CNN host Don Lemon said Wednesday it wasn’t “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett’s fault that he had already lost in the “court of public opinion” for his handling of the weeks since he claimed he was attacked in a hate crime.

Rather, Lemon said, after he and his panel assessed the legal troubles Smollett is in following his arrest for disorderly conduct in filing a false police report, it seemed the actor had gotten poor advice.

The article goes on to state the following:

“In the court of public opinion, Jussie has lost,” Lemon said. “He’s lost the fight in the court of public opinion, and that’s where his battle is. Legally … if it’s jail time, if he has to do probation, if he has to pay whatever, but in the court of public opinion—”

    It is 100% his fault and he needs to be held accountable!

    George, your comment is one of the reasons we have problems. This broad brush stroke is certainly not true. I bet there are a lot of backward people like you who stick together like shit no matter what. People like Don Lemon and the other MSM make things worse by always blaming someone else. All of you are disgusting. Yes sir, I am white. Yes sir, he needs to go to jail.

    Even O. J.Simpson had covered his ass.
    They are very solidarity defend their ass and stick together no matter what happened.

    Now it seems if you are black you are treated special, now it is white discrimination. Look at the persons heart. Obozo started up the race stuff, and he never embraced his white side being that he had a white mother. He was biracial

    If Smolette goes to prison, which he should, he will be eating steak every day he is there… tube steak that is….

    Isn’t that how they are trying to destroy Trump? The media is trying its best to help the Democrats and turn the people against Trump, even though he has done more to help the country than the last 4 presidents.
