Every day the news for actor Jussie Smollett gets worse and worse.
Now even ABC is throwing him under the bus as reports surface that the networks staffers began to doubt Smollett’s story after his interview with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America, as the New York Post reports:
Staffers who were present for the exclusive sit-down with the “Good Morning America” host felt the truth behind Smollett’s story was “up in the air,” sources told The Blast.
Of course one could ask the question, if staffers felt the truth was “up in the air” after the interview, why did the network keep silent until now?
A source told The Post that the interview came about because the “Empire” star was “adamant” about appearing on “GMA.”
So do guests determine if or when they appear on “Good Morning America?” Is that standard practice for the show?
He specifically requested that Roberts handle the interview because the two knew each other from when she appeared on an episode of “Empire” that aired in April, according to The Blast.
Again, why did the network wait so long before revealing their concerns? Could it be, they had doubts, but liked the anti-Trump narrative part of it, so they kept silent?
Lots of questions that need answers!
It seems ABC and GMA are wasting no time trying to reverse course on this story:

It also appears clear that Smollett is a pathological liar with a deep seated and irrational hatred of President Trump:

When you’re a Trump hater and you’ve lost Trevor Noah, it’s all but over:
