Emanual to Trump: ‘Sit on the Sidelines’ in Smollett Case

March 29, 2019

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Thursday strongly suggested that President Trump stay out of the controversy over the race hoax involving gay, black actor Jussie Smollett.

“My recommendation is the president go to Opening Day baseball, sit on the sidelines and stay out of this,” Emanuel told a group of reporters. He then called Chicago a “Trump-free zone” and blamed the president for creating a “toxic” and “hate-filled” environment that allowed Smollett to think he could get away with faking a hate crime.
