Jussie Smollett may be in deep kimchi. He has been charged by a Grand Jury with filing a false police report, which can be either a felony or a misdemeanor depending on how it is charged. It is also possible that he may face federal mail fraud charges over the letter that he got so pissed off that it was ignored. It seems highly likely that he sent it to himself.

So far he is hanging tough and the cops are talking with his lawyer about him surrendering. I won't be surprised if he runs. I would GUESS that he sees his career as being over if the is convicted, or cops to the charges and I BELIEVE that his career is the most important thing in his life right now or he would not have painted himself into a dumbass corner in the fashion that he has.

By the time you read this, about 12 hours after I am typing it, we might have a pretty good idea which way this is going to break. He may, just maybe, save himself if he kisses a lot of ass and eats a lot of crow.

What I find interesting and remarkable is that ANYBODY who had any brains and a stinkometer that was even slightly working would have looked sideways at his initial story. The media and Trump haters WANTED to believe the story, so they did, even though it was highly improbably on it's face. A stinkometer is not infallible. Sometimes highly unlikely stories are proven to be true, or at least can not be proven to be false. That being said, if it looks like horseshit and smells like horseshit there is a pretty fair chance that it is horseshit and not a chocolate cupcake. Before you swallow it whole, you should be sure.

The readiness of so many members of the press and so many others in this country to swallow this line of horseshit is not just interesting and remarkable, Howie.

It's downright scary.
