    You are half right. His comment was also condescending.

        Has there been confirmation that it's a hoax? Last I read the CPD was still denying those reports.

          This. It isn't hard to find people who don't support equal rights at all. I grew up as one and still know lots of them.

                Yep, you couldn't make up a more weird scenario

                Here's a pic of the brothers :

                They were the only ones that showed up on any cctv at the time of the incident

                Definitely not white, and I'd wager not MAGA guys

                If they've been arrested, I would think it's for participating in a hoax

                  No confirmation. Should have answers pretty soon though.

                      That’s correct.

                          And, now, one of the "potential suspects" in the @JussieSmollett case walking upside down on a treadmill in the gym at Smollett's building. #JussieSmollett #ItDoesntWorkThatWay #Chicago pic.twitter.com/umjaf2CiKh

I am surprised you could be this naive, John. I am talking about 21st century politics in the USA. People's votes get moved by their answers to poll questions like "who can better create jobs, Ds or Rs?" That's why they ask those questions. The majority of people barely know the names of the candidates.

                            And he is far from a lost cause. If the Dems take half the advice handed out on this forum in the posts above they will hand the election to Trump on a platter and then end up whining about the electoral college again. Stop thinking about how to grow meaningless majorities in blue states and start thinking about how win non-blue states, because that is how elections are won. You guys are making me very nervous this clown could be with us for four more years and the Dems will have only themselves to blame. I want him gone. That is Job 1.

                            Further, there is no guarantee the Republican candidate will be Trump. Any approach has to be looked at in that context.
                            Not naive at all. Trump needs a person. He doesn’t attack generic Democrats well.

                              Tough day for the liberal media outlets. First the Covington kids were exonerated on the front page of the Washington post. Then the whole Justin Smollett story falls apart.

                              Did you guys hear about this guy?

                              Maybe the media could run with this story--rumor has it the mountain lion was screaming "this is MAGA country!!" Possibly wearing a red hat too.
