Just in case you thought there were limits to what a Democrat would blame President Trump for…
Chicago’s mayor, Rahm Emanuel, is blaming him for jussie smollett.
I swear, this is not satire. He really is.
Excerpted from Greg Evans’ article at deadline.com:
Asked by a reporter whether he agrees with President Donald Trump’s tweeted suggestion that the FBI and the Department of Justice “review” the Smollett case, Emanuel clearly didn’t want Trump on his team, opening day or not. Calling Chicago a “Trump-Free Zone,” Emanuel said that the president created the very environment – “toxic” and “hate-filled” – that allowed Smollett to think he could get away with staging a hate crime.
Telling the president to “stay out of this,” Emanuel said Trump and Smollett were part of the same “vicious, toxic cycle and I want to break it.”
Unbelievable? No, Rahm Emanuel and Chicago politics.
To refresh your memory, Rahm Emanuel was the guy who, famously, said “never let a crisis go to waste”.
I guess this is his version of that maxim, as applied to the jussie smollett hoax.
Emanuel also called the jussie smollett deal “shameless”.
Obviously, he knows a great deal about “shameless”, doesn’t he?
