Well, this is a special kind of stupid, isn't it?
Yesterday a CNN panelist compared a horrible person to one of America's greatest.
Jack Robinson was a brilliant athlete who broke color barriers and to become the first African-American professional baseball player in Major League Baseball's modern era. He won games and he fought for civil rights. He was also an honest and decent person.
Jussie Smollett is a lying sociopath who tried to start a race war 10 years after stealing his own family member's identity during a DUI arrest. He's always been a scumbag and now the world knows this truth.
Even still, CNN’s Van Jones compared "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett to baseball legend Jackie Robinson on Thursday during a segment on the “black community.”
