WATCH: The Old Rahm Emanuel Returns, Blames Smollett Hoax on Trump
You knew the strange new respect some of us had for Rahm Emanuel wasn't going to last (see Chicago Superintendent, Mayor Emanuel Nail Jussie Smollett: “This is a Whitewashing of Justice” and Rahm Emanuel Wants Jussie Smollet to Pay Up After Investigation). The Chicago Mayor can go back to eating a bag of d*cks after this clip.
The only reason Jussie Smollett thought he could take advantage of a hoax about a hate crime is for the environment, the toxic environment that Donald Trump created.
Nope. Nuh-uh. Absolutely not. Screw that noise.
Trump didn't create this environment. Leftists created this environment monetizing hate by creating it where it doesn't exist every time five idiots have the same stupid opinion about a movie with a girl or a black guy in it. Democrats created this environment by creating new and exciting victim classes every time they need votes. The media created this environment by their uncritical reporting anytime someone wearing a MAGA hat is accused of a thing.
Is Trump a nice person? No.
But Rahm Emanuel's ideological colleagues created this environment long before Trump was elected. To blame Trump for Jussie Smollett is just as bad as Jussie Smollett blaming anyone for the fake hate crime against him.
