As you may have read, most of Hollywood erupted after gay actor Jussie Smollett, star of Fox’s “Empire,” faked a hate crime attack in which he claimed he was assaulted by two whites and who has now been exonerated by a corrupt state's attorney, Kim Foxx.
Chicago PD never found any evidence to support the claim but much to refute it, but of course, evidence never mattered to the Hollywood Left; any attack on a gay person (even a fake one) has got to be a direct result of the “hate” and “intolerance” of POTUS Donald Trump and VP Mike Pence.
Enter actress Ellen Page.
During an appearance on “The Late Show” with Stephen Colbert on Thursday, she literally accused the president and vice president of spreading hate towards the LGBTQ community and hinting that the alleged attack against Smollett was their fault as well.
In a self-terrorizing breakdown, Page claimed that neither Trump nor Pence wanted her to marry her lesbian spouse, either.
“I’m like really fired up right now, but it feels impossible not to feel this way right now with the president and vice president, Mike Pence, who wishes I could not be married, let’s just be clear,” she said.
“The vice president of America wishes I didn’t have the love with my wife,” she continued. “He wanted to ban that in Indiana. He believes in conversion therapy, he has hurt LGBTQ people so badly as the governor of Indiana,” she continued.
In attempting to tie the administration to Smollett’s alleged attack, Page added, “Connect the dots, this is what happens,” though she admitted she didn’t know details on a personal level.
“If you are in a position of power and you hate people and you want to cause suffering to them, you go through the trouble, you spend your career trying to cause suffering — what do you think is going to happen? Kids are going to be abused, and they’re going to kill themselves and people are going to be beaten on the street,” she said.
For his part, POTUS Trump addressed the attack and was very specific in his disdain for it. “That, I can tell you, is horrible. It doesn’t get worse,” he said.
First, Smollett. He’s not helping his cause because he’s refusing to turn over his cellphone to police detectives looking into the allegations, according to reports. Also, as of Friday, police said that they have discovered video of him arriving home with a rope around his neck, but they still cannot find video evidence of the attack, despite the prevalence of cameras in the area where he says the assault took place.

As for the president and vice president, both of them have taken public stances in favor of support for religious freedom for all Americans, as called for by the First Amendment — especially for Christians, since the Left has been persecuting them for years. And as it happens, the Christian faith teaches that marriage should be traditional — between a man and a woman.
But Christianity does not call for violence against gays and lesbians, like, say, Islam. So to claim that the administration’s pro-Christian support is akin to promoting violence isn’t just disingenuous, it’s flat-out wrong.
Was Smollett attacked by white Trump supporters? Time will tell, but Page claiming that the president and VP have called for or sanctioned such attacks is false and needless self-terrorization.
