“The left in this country, they don’t give a damn about truth or justice,” Hannity said. “They get it wrong every single time. They don’t care if they ruin somebody’s life. They will lie. They will smear, they will slander. They will besmirch anyone for political gain.”
Smollett, an actor, was found guilty Thursday on five of six charges for his role in faking a hate crime he claimed to be a victim of in January 2019.
“What Jussie Smollett did was vile, but even worse, the incredible but predictable rush to judgment from the media mob, from the Hollywood celebrity mob and from the Democratic Party mob,” Hannity said. “…[Smollett’s tale was] a pretty strange, farfetched story, but almost everyone on the left, they bought it hook, they bought it line, they bought it sinker.”
