The first “uplifting” project from Barack and Moochelle Obama
From Rolling Stone, “Barack, Michelle Obama Unveil Initial Slate of Netflix Projects.”
And Mayor Rahm is Pissed…the ‘fix’ was in.
In a stunning move, prosecutors in Chicago dropped all charges against “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett on Tuesday despite acknowleging Smollet fabricated a street attack on himself in an attempt to get a pay raise.
“We stand behind the investigation and the facts revealed,” said Joe Magats, the first assistant state attorney in Illinois, who took over the case when his boss, State Attorney Kim Foxx, recused herself from the probe after it surfaced that she had been in touch with Smollett’s family.
“We believe he did what he was charged with doing,” Magats said in an interview with ABC station WLS-TV in Chicago.
Asked again whether he believes Smollett fabricated the incident, Magats replied, “yes.”
Here are a few of our favorite Jussie Smollett memories.
The DailyWire reports this interesting tidbit that has currency today, “Obama Admits Heavy Drinking, Drug Problems As An ‘Adolescent’.” What does Obama say about his formative years? Here are some quotes from his ‘ownliest’ lips…. And remember, you too, can be President if you’re a beer drinking, dope smoking, fist fighting, class cutting, thug. And, of course, a Democrat.
[He admits] that while he was a “young boy” and an “adolescent” he drank “a six-pack in an hour” in between classes, got in fights, was a “thug,” and used illegal drugs.
Yeah, but did he throw ice cubes at a bar?
[He said], “I was a thug for a big part of my growing up.”
Yeah, but did he ever ‘ralph’ on someone?
Yeah, but does he like beer? Really, really like beer?
[Well, hell yes, Judge.] Obama noted “I might have drank a six-pack in an hour before going back to class, things like that.”
Obama on his adolescent years in a rare video of a 2001 interview:
-"I was a thug," a "mischievous child"
-"I got into fights."
-"I drank and did–and consumed substances that weren't always legal."
