Trump just tried to argue that accusing his fans of being racist is a hate crime

President Trump’s paranoia and narcissism give him an extraordinary ability to portray himself and his followers as the victims as he attacks his perceived enemies and any target that will help shore up his political support among his base, so many of which have been accurately portrayed as “deplorables” by those who oppose the prejudice, fear, and hatred that the president regularly preaches.

Trump’s victimhood was on full display today as he tweeted —apropos of nothing in particular — his grievances about the case of Jussie Smollett, the actor on Fox‘s Empire TV show whose bizarre tale of a racially-based assault was quickly refuted by police as being a staged publicity stunt but had the felony charges against him of filing a false police report dropped suddenly and inexplicably shortly thereafter.

@realDonaldTrump
In addition to great incompetence and corruption, The Smollett case in Chicago is also about a Hate Crime. Remember, “MAGA COUNTRY DID IT!” That turned out to be a total lie, had nothing to do with “MAGA COUNTRY.” Serious stuff, and not even an apology to millions of people!

Obviously, the president is more concerned with the damage to his own image and that of his followers than with any violations of the rule of law — a concept for which he regularly demonstrates total contempt by his own actions.

Whatever the story behind the Jussie Smollett incident and the mysterious reasons for the Chicago police department’s unexplained decision to drop all charges against him, the details of the whole affair are due to be revealed soon after Cook County Judge Steven Watkins ruled on Thursday that the files in the case need not be sealed to protect Smollett’s privacy as they have been since the case began.

2. You said it!

Every time I hear his latest incoherent and outrageous rambles, I try to imagine the reaction if any president - from any party at any time - had uttered such nonsense and it boggles the mind!
