Response to Jose Garcia (Original post)

5. One of the humorous comments I read or heard about this...

One of the humorous comments that I read or heard about this whole thing was...the first clue should have been, "You mean there are MAGAs who watch Empire?" LOL.

It would be odd that Trumpers would watch that show, and know who Smollett is, when you think about it.

I had never heard of him before this. I've never seen that show. I would not have known his race, much less that he's gay. (I don't watch much major network tv.)

Anyway, I thought that was funny, because, it's sorta true. I can't see families of racists crowding around the tv set to watch Empire or Blackish.

They'll quietly release him from the show, when his legal troubles conclude, if it's found he did falsify the incident. BTW, I looked him up on Wikipedia, where it mentions a prior DUI charge, in which he gave false information to law enforcement at that time.
