Dem Mayor Now Blames President Trump for Jussie Smollett Hate Crime Hoax (Details)

That fake hate crime committed in Chicago by former “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett?

It was President Trump’s fault, obviously.

This comes from the Democrat mayor of the Windy City, Rahm Emanuel.

Is this the best he can do? If so, it’s pretty damn weak.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel blamed President Donald Trump in a press conference Thursday for the alleged hate hoax carried out by Empire Jussie Smollett, claiming that the president created a “toxic” and “vicious” cycle for which the star thought he could get away with the purportedly staged attack on himself.

Emanuel noted, “Look, I’ve always said from day one this is a Trump-free zone, the city of Chicago, and I mean it. Let me be really clear about something: The only reason Jussie Smollett thought he could take advantage of a hoax about a hate crime is for the environment, the toxic environment Donald Trump created.

Emanuel added, “This is a president who drew a moral equivalency between people who are trying to perpetuate bigotry and those who are trying to fight bigotry. As somebody who started his own journey in politics fighting the neo-Nazis in Skokie and Marquette Park, President Trump should literally take his politics, move it aside.

Because he’s a celebrity of sorts, it appears Smollett will get off scot-free after faking a hate crime against himself.

Chicago law enforcement, and even liberal Mayor Rahm Emanuel, are pretty ticked off with the situation.

Now, Jussie’s case has been “wiped” clean from the Cook County Clerk’s database as if nothing ever happened.

No joke.

From Daily Wire:

The Jussie Smollett case took a shocking turn on Tuesday when the Cook County State’s Attorney’s office dropped all the charges against the “Empire” actor and ordered the case to be sealed.

Now the Cook County clerk’s office has told ABC News that no written motions were filed as part of the dismissal and the case had already been removed from their database.

ABC’s senior national correspondent, Terry Moran, tweeted:

Cook County clerk’s office tells @ABC they were shocked that no written motions were filed with the court in connection with today’s surprising dismissal in the Smollett case. On top of that, the case has been wiped off their database as if it never existed.

Many liberals are siding with conservatives against Smollett and it shouldn’t be hard to understand why.

Jussie’s case should be non-partisan.

The facts are crystal clear. Smollett deceived the nation in order to gain larger fame.

He wasted taxpayer dollars and forced law enforcement to focus their time and energy on a case that wasn’t necessary.

Imagine all the actual crimes that played second fiddle during this saga.

Shameful.

Powerful!

Kudos to this American hero for speaking up and calling out Jussie for attempting to incite a race war.
