The charges against Jussie Smollett have been dismissed — despite all the evidence against him — and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is fit to be tied. We’re not joking … he is mad as hell:
Rahm Emanuel on Smollett: "You have a person using hate crime laws that are on the books to protect people who are minorities from violence, to then turn around and use those laws to advance your career and your financial reward, is there no decency in this man?"

WOW. @rahnemanuel: "From top to bottom, this is not on the level … There needs to be a level of accountability throughout the system, and this sends an ambiguous message that there is no accountability and that is wrong."

Mayor Emanuel on Smollett: "Is there no decency in this man?"
Asked if prosecutors' decision was political, Emanuel says to ask them, doesn't deny it.
Emanuel reminds us of the letter that started it all, says Smollett used his race and sexual orientation for self promotion.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel compares Jussie Smollett's dropped charges to the recent college admissions scandal: "You cannot have, because of a person's position, one set of rules apply to them and another set of rules apply to everybody else" https://t.co/kNQqMavks3 pic.twitter.com/mwx1mChCqH

JUST IN: Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel: "Mr. Smollett is still saying that he is innocent, still running down the Chicago Police Department. How dare him?"

In this particular situation, it’s tough to blame him.

Rahm Emanuel has every right to be as infuriated as he is. So many man hours spent on this. Video of the two men buying the exact supplies used in the “attack” and a check signed by Smollett paying them. This is privilege at work, he and PD Supt. Johnson are right to call it out.

What’s happened with Jussie Smollett can most definitely not be called “justice.”
The Left has gone so far off script that they've got Rahm Emanuel speaking sensibly.
What a time to be alive. https://t.co/aeEtSAvkJU

Shoutout to Jussie Smollett for making me cheer for Rahm Emanuel.

WTF I love Rahm Emmanuel now!?

Rahm Emmanuel just spoke for me.
That just happened.

Well, maybe slow that roll just a little bit …
This is pretty rich coming from a guy that owes his entire political career to machine politics in a one-party city, county, and state. https://t.co/8zFoUcfrQH
