‘FRAUDS ARE EVERYWHERE Y’ALL’: Smollett’s tweets come back to haunt him amid ‘hate hoax’ controversy

February 19th, 2019
By Victor Skinner

Gay black actor Jussie Smollett may soon go down as the greatest hate hoaxer in American history, both because of the made-for-TV drama he allegedly concocted to successfully dupe a gullible and biased media, but also for taking the sport of fake hate crimes to a whole new level of hypocrisy.

If reports he staged the stunt are true, it sheds a whole new light to the actor’s habit of doling out advice online about social justice and racism, and attacks on conservatives who support President Trump.

The American Mirror offers a collection of Smollett’s greatest hits, courtesy of the actor’s Twitter account.

People are either completely unaware that Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand is running for president or they could not care less about her campaign.

During a stop on Monday night at a bar in Iowa City, Iowa, the New York senator was speaking to a small crowd and trying to engage with potential voters.

When one woman was trying to make her way through the crowd, she came into contact with Gillibrand.

As Gillibrand turned to speak with her, the woman hilariously explained that she was “just trying to get some ranch dressing.”

“And here’s video of the woman ‘just trying to get some ranch,’ while Senator Kirsten Gillibrand speaks to supporters in Iowa City,” CNN’s DJ Judd wrote in a tweet with the video clip.

Elizabeth Warren calls for using 25th Amendment to remove Trump

Sen. Elizabeth Warren supports removing President Donald Trump from office despite having no justifiable or legal reason to do so.

While speaking to a local news outlet on Sunday following a rally in Las Vegas, Nevada, the 2020 presidential candidate was asked about fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe saying Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and others at the Department of Justice spoke about invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump in May 2017.

“My point here is that if they believe that Donald Trump cannot fulfill the obligations of his office, then they have a constitutional responsibility to invoke the 25th Amendment,” Warren told reporters.

Warren said she believes that Trump’s Cabinet has a duty “to the Constitution of the United States and to the people of United States.”

By Victor Skinner

A performing arts center in Ohio is pulling the plug on Nerf birthday parties at the facility after folks complained about one of the games outlined on the center’s website that encourages kids to “eliminate the president.”

The Olmsted Performing Arts center in Berea, Ohio advertised Nerf-themed events for kids and offered a selection of different games to choose from.

“These action-packed parties (perfect for a birthday or other special event) are two hours of non-stop fun centered around Nerf battles,” the description read. “Your guests will enjoy up to three different organized games.”

The selection included capture the flag, elimination, outlaws and infection. There’s also “President.”

Pelosi quietly deletes tweet sympathetic to Smollett

February 18th, 2019
By Martin Walsh

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is one of many Democrats trying to backtrack on their original defense of “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett.

On Jan. 29, Pelosi joined many others and took to Twitter to issue a strong defense of Smollett, who claimed that he was physically assaulted in Chicago by two men in ski masks who poured bleach on him, put a rope around his neck like a noose, and yelled, “This is MAGA country.”

Pelosi emphatically deafened Smollett and portrayed him as a upstanding person.

“The racist, homophobic attack on Jussie Smollett is an affront to our humanity. No one should be attack for who they are or whom they love. I pray that Jussie has a speedy recovery and that justice is served,” Pelosi wrote.

“May we all commit to ending this hate once and for all,” she added.

As noted by Newsmax columnist James Hirsen, the tweet no longer exists on Pelosi’s official Twitter account, meaning it appears to have been deleted.
