CANDACE OWENS: This defendant should have actually pled insanity, and I would have bought it. Like, when you listen to the story and you really follow every element of this, like, Jussie Smollett is not a sane person. And what people are forgetting is that he’s asking you to believe… You know, there’s this thing called Occam’s Razor, right?
Usually, the simplest explanation is the best explanation. He is asking you to believe just an incredible set of circumstances took place here. I mean, you have to be an absolute fool to believe anything else than what is plainly in front of us. Jussie Smollett lied. It was actually the greatest racial hoax that has taken place at least in the last three decades.
BUCK: Welcome back to Clay and Buck. That’s Candace Owens lighting it up last night on Fox about the Jussie Smollett trial. I still feel like this is a great disservice both to justice and to transparency. I would even add to that a great disservice to comedy that we do not have access to what is being said. We’re getting reporting of it, but we don’t have the audio.
We don’t have the video from within the courtroom of Jussie Smollett. Just so everyone is clear on this, he is now claiming that there was, in fact, at this stage, he is still saying there was a hate crime attack against him and that the two Nigerian brothers committed this hate crime attack, I guess? Is that where he is? That’s the part of the —
CLAY: I think he’s also now arguing that there was a third person in addition to the two of them, and that this mystery third person might have been a white guy. It has spiraled into a series of unbelievable lies. But he’s still claiming, yes, that he was the victim of a hate crime.
BUCK: He’s saying it was hate crime attack. He’s also claiming that one of the Nigerian brothers and him had some kind of a sexual relationship at a bathhouse.
BUCK: The Nigerian brother, I believe, claims there was no sexual relationship but there was a smoking of a blunt or a marijuana cigarette, for those out there, and the whole thing is absurd beyond words. And the reason that it’s so interesting is that when you see there are still people… This whole movement around diversity and inclusion and the race obsession of the mainstream and the Democrat corporate media is like a religious belief.
Because you have people that won’t even come out and say, “Yeah, he did it. This is a joke. This is absurd.” They’re still doing the “Oh, we gotta hear what Jussie Smollett says,” this neutral reporting thing. This is beyond farce. If you were writing this to be in an episode of a TV series, they’d say, “Well, this is too stupid.” They’ve got video of the guy and the guy is still claiming that he didn’t do it? It’s absurd, but it also goes to show you Jussie Smollett has gotten away with lying and with playing this game and playing this card for a very long time.
