Chicago Mayor Smollett Not Important

After Jussie Smollett’s hate hoax attempt stained the entire city of Chicago after the B-list actor attempted to smear its residents, and supporters of President Donald J. Trump, as a group of roving racists, the new Chicago mayor says she does not consider the matter important.

Even after the Chicago Fraternal Order of Police gave Obama-connected prosecutor Kim Foxx a vote of no confidence, pursued civil charges against Smollett, and current mayor Rahm Emmanuel slammed Smollett for his hoax, the incoming Chicago mayor told local media that the hoax “doesn’t rank as a matter of any importance” to her administration.

Smollett infamously told police and the media he was attacked by a gang of Trump supporters at 2 a.m., had bleach thrown over his body, and was nearly killed as the men yelled “This is MAGA country.” Police later found this to be completely inaccurate, and arrested Smollett.

The charges would then be dropped by an Obama connected prosecutor, who previously told the public she had recused herself from the case.

Even Chicago’s outgoing Mayor Emmanuel slammed Smollett for wasting police resources and disparaging the city in the process.

Yet, speaking to ABC 7 Chicago, the diverse mayor-elect refused to comment, except for noting that she does not consider Smollett or his actions important.

“I’m not going to comment on any pending litigation,” said Lightfoot. “Obviously this was a decision that was made by the current mayor, Rahm Emanuel,”

She added, “We’ve got a lot of things on our plate, a lot of pressing issues that are truly affecting people’s lives. This doesn’t rank as a matter of any importance to me.”

It remains to be seen how the civil case will end. Chicago is suing Smollett in order to seek $130,000 as recompense for the massive amount of money spent chasing the imaginary white supremacist attackers, and Smollett’s legal team is exploring a brave new strategy: they are claiming the Nigerians allegedly paid by Smollett to commit the attack were, in fact, wearing “white face.”

Democrat Lawmaker: Send Trump to War Crimes Tribunal for Recommending Hydroxychloroquine

Trump derangement syndrome hits a new low.

Published

A Democrat state lawmaker from the state of Ohio has suggested that she will be recommending President Donald Trump to The Hague for war crimes because he suggested hydroxychloroquine could be used to treat coronavirus.

“I can’t take it anymore. I’ve been to The Hague. I’m making a referral for crimes against humanity tomorrow,” Ohio State Rep. Tavia Galonski wrote in a tweet on Sunday night. “Today’s press conference was the last straw. I know the need for a prosecution referral when I see one.”

President Donald Trump has come under fire from the fake news media for trying to get medicines and treatments not approved by the FDA into the hands of individuals afflicted with coronavirus.

Trump has been a proponent of bypassing FDA regulations in certain instances to get medicine to the sick since he signed the “Right to Try Act” into law in 2018.

“People who are terminally ill should not have to go from country to country to seek a cure — I want to give them a chance right here at home,” Trump said in May 2018 before he signed the law allowing experimental medications and treatments to be used in certain instances.

A study of doctors throughout the world has found that hydroxychloroquine is the “most effective therapy” for coronavirus. The study, conducted by the health care polling firm Sermo, found that hydroxychloroquine is underprescribed in the US in comparison to other countries.

“Outside the US, hydroxychloroquine was equally used for diagnosed patients with mild to severe symptoms whereas in the US it was most commonly used for high risk diagnosed patients,” the survey found.

Trump is repeating what the doctors are saying regarding coronavirus, but the Democrats are desperate to stifle possible solutions if it means scoring political points.

“I am a fan of that [drug] and we’ll see what happens. I have seen things that are impressive. We’ll see. We’ll know soon. When you get to safety, this is prescribed for many years for people to combat malaria, which was a big problem,” Trump said about hydroxychloroquine.

“Everybody knows the level of the negatives and positives, but I will say that I am positive when it comes to particularly one of these drugs. We’ll see how it works. I am not saying it will but I think that people may be surprised. It is a game-changer. We’ll know very soon,” the president added.

Galonski has not currently followed through on her threat to report President Trump for war crimes because of his advocacy for hydroxychloroquine.
