Awwww, we love The Babylon Bee. They have truly mastered what it means to be a parody/satire account and truth be told, they are fairly equal opportunity with it comes to mocking people and politics in this country.

Their take on Jussie Smollett though … we’re not sure who this hurts more, Jussie or CNN.


From The Babylon Bee:

CNN producers were reportedly impressed throughout the ongoing saga of Smollett’s apparent hoax attack on himself. They realized early on the facts didn’t add up but were fascinated with how well the actor kept the narrative going. An HR rep quickly reached out to Smollett to see if he’d be interested in taking on a position at the news organization after news broke that the entire thing was probably fabricated.

“Smollett has exactly the kind of skills we look for at our fine organization,” said CNN correspondent Brian Stelter. “He picked a narrative, made up all the relevant facts and details, and stuck with his story in spite of glaring holes in the plot. It’s hard to find people who understand our core values here at CNN, but Smollett seems to be just the guy for us.”

We honestly can’t think of a more perfect place for Jussie after this is all said and done.

Right? Their satire game is STRONG.

Sidenote: This gif is one of this editor’s favorites of all time.

Carry on.


Which is what makes it GREAT satire.
