Jussie Smollett Thought His Lie Would Work, Because He Thought Nothing Of Dehumanizing Trump Supporters

Jussie Smollett has been arrested and charged with filing a false police report in connection to an alleged attack against him. As the story has played out, Smollett coordinated and paid (by check!) for two Nigerian men to attack him so he could garner sympathy and increase his TV salary.

[Tony Katz](http://twitter.com/tonykatz) gets to the heart of the matter. Why would Jussie Smollett do this, the MSM asks and laments? Simple: he wanted “Reputation Capital,” and he thought nothing of attacking, demeaning, lying about and dehumanizing Trump supporters to get it.

The real story is that Jussie Smollet, and those who think like him, have so dehmanized the Trump supporter and others who disagree with them that they were willing to accuse them of crimes and let them be found guilty for them when they did nothing wrong. And they did it for cultural advancement – for Reputation Capital – and for a paycheck.

Eat! Drink! Smoke! – Snack Size! – He’s Not A Proctologist, But He Likes The Name and No To Kaepernick and Yes To Kareem Hunt?

April D. Gregory has no interest in Colin Kaepernick’s protest move of kneeling for the National Anthem. But what to make of his decision not to play in the AAF? Was it about money, or about Kaepernick being more interested in being a martyr? And since the NFL has allowed people like Kareem Hunt back in the league, can Kaepernick claim that he is really being blackballed?

Tony Katz hosts Eat! Drink! Smoke! As for what the real story is with Kaepernick? Tony and April discuss it with Fingers Malloy. (NOTE After the podcast, it was announced that Kaepernick and Eric Reid settled a lawsuit with the NFL for between $60-80 million, though other reporting has the number at far less. Could this open the way for Kaepernick in the NFL? Possibly.)

A man in Saskatchewan, Canada wanted to put his last name on his license plate, but the government said no. Because when you spell his name, it’s a potential curse word. Or, he’s just Kramer in Seinfeld.

Eat! Drink! Smoke! – Episode 21 – Explaining The Whole Twisted Gov. Ralph Northam Story, $50,000 Bar Mitzvahs, Avo Cigars and Stagg Jr. Bourbon

It’s rare that we are recording the podcast as breaking news is happening, but that’s how it went this week as the Saga of Virginia Democrat Governor Ralph Northam was unfolding as we were recording.

A photo of a man in blackface standing next to a person in a KKK robe was discovered on Northam’s medical school yearbook page. At first Northam admitted to taking the photo. The next day, he said it wasn’t him. And, while we were recording, Gov. Northam was holding a press conference to profess his innocence…while admitting to doing blackface another time in his life!

As Tony Katz notes, the photo is unacceptable. But why is this the story, as opposed to Gov. Northam’s acceptance and support of infanticide?

It’s a busy Eat! Drink! Smoke!, recorded live at Blend Bar Cigar in Indianapolis. Tony, joined by April D. Gregory and Fingers Malloy, review Stagg Jr. bourbon and the Avo Classic cigar.
