Nikki Haley said “the media should be outraged” for its coverage of an alleged attack on Jussie Smollett, saying the “Empire” actor “played all of them for fools.”
She wrote, “Thoughts on Jussie Smollett case: He must be held accountable in the strictest way.”
“He must repay resources used to investigate and serve time for the division he caused. The media should be the most outraged. He played all of them for fools. He knew they would cover it.” Haley added.
On Jan. 29, Smollett claimed he was attacked around 2 a.m. in a Chicago neighborhood by two men who shouted “This is MAGA country!” as well as racist and homophobic slurs. He also said the men poured an “unknown liquid” on him and attempted to tie a noose around his neck, reported The Hill. (Videos Below)
Several Democratic lawmakers condemned the alleged attack, including Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Kamala Harris (D-CA) before the facts came out and called it a “modern-day lynching.”
Both have since said they will withhold judgment in the case until police wrap up their investigation.
However, when confronted in public about Smollett, Kamala Harris stumbled on her words. (Videos Below)
