CNN Guest Still Manages To Trash Trump Supporters After Smollett Arrest

CNN guest Tiffany Cross managed to turn the allegedly hoaxed hate crime by “Empire” star Jussie Smollett back on Trump supporters during a panel discussion Friday morning.

Cross, a co-founder of The Beat DC, admitted that what Smollett allegedly did to stage the crime is “sociopathic,” but then immediately turned her attention to deriding supporters of President Donald Trump — despite their apparent lack of involvement in the incident.

“I think we have to be honest about what the MAGA hat has come to represent, what the MAGA symbol has come to represent — I don’t know that I would conflate these two,” Cross said. “This is an actor, you know, allegedly feigning this whole attack, trying to get more money for his salary, that’s a separate conversation from what’s happening in society at large and the divide that’s happening in this country.”

“Didn’t he in fact attempt to paint the MAGA supporters as these racist and homophobic people?” CNN contributor Nischelle Turner questioned.

“But, Nischelle, I have to respectfully disagree. I think MAGA supporters have painted themselves as that,” Cross said. “When you look at footage, when you hear things they say, this is the honest truth and we have to be bold enough to call that out.”

CNN is nothing more than the hate Trump network. If you are a delusional Trump hater that's where to go.

So this guy is out, alone, in Chicago, at 2:30am looking for something to eat. He "allegedly" staged this attack, lied it was two white men. All to get more of an already overpaid salary. And it is President Trump's fault for creating "this divide that's happening in this country". So please explain how there wasn't a white person involved in this "alleged" attack, yet you claim racism? I'll wait. Sounds to me it's more about greed and trying to play the racism card to get it.
