There is nowhere in America more opposed to President Trump than Hollywood.
It is not possible for anybody to make it as a star without opposing Trump.
And one of Hollywood’s loudest anti-Trump stars just ended their career by doing something unthinkable.
There seems to be a race to the gutter in how low of an attack Hollywood stars can wage against the President.
Late night hosts can’t go a single episode without launching personal attacks against President Trump and his family.
Actor Robert De Niro made waves for screaming “f*** Trump” at an awards show.
And “comedian” Kathy Griffin even went on T.V. holding a bloody head appearing like President Trump’s to show her opposition.
So it isn’t surprising that these Hollywood stars are willing to do anything to get back at Trump and conservatives.
But the lowest that anybody has gone yet is Empire star Jussie Smollett, who faked a hate crime against himself to attack Trump and advance his career.
The claim from Smollett is that two white men wearing MAGA hats, in below freezing temperatures in the middle of the night in Chicago put a noose around his neck while yelling “This is MAGA country.”
If true, the scene is terrifying to any decent person and is something the media reported on incessantly.
But once the story started picking up, questions began to be raised, eventually answering themselves.
As it turns out, the two “white men” were actually very dark skinned Nigerian men, who were allegedly acting on Smollett’s orders.
Surveillance video shows this and shows the two men purchasing all the necessary items for their fake hate crime.
So Smollett ended up getting arrested for faking the crime and falsifying police reports.
But despite there being a solid case against him, those charges were dropped by a judge in a shocking turn of events.
The terms of the charges being dropped are that Smollett must surrender his $10,000 bail, and nothing more.
So he is being let off the hook and is using that to claim his innocence.
But decent people everywhere are outraged at this turn of events.
And even some less-than-decent people are seeing just how corrupt it is, including Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
Emanuel blasted the decision to drop charges against him, and went after Smollett very harshly, saying:
“[Jussie Smollett] is a person now who has not been let off scot-free with no sense of accountability of the moral and ethical wrong of his actions from top to bottom . . . 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?”
Emanuel is the last person Smollett wants speaking out against him, considering how much power he has in Chicago.
This truly shows that Smollett is running out of people who are on his side, and it signals what is likely the end of his career.
Do you think Jussie Smollett’s career is over?
