Tuesday news update

1. TMZ reports that “Empire” is going to “slash” Jussie Smollett’s screen-time.

Production sources tell TMZ … Jussie was supposed to have 9 scenes and a big musical number in the second to the last episode — which is being shot now — but, 5 of his scenes have been cut, and his musical number has been 86’d.

But he has not been immediately fired and the show canceled, like happened with Roseanne Barr because of a single free-speech Tweet. The lesson is that a white person tweeting something stupid and then deleting it and apologizing is a much worse offense than a black person committing a felony hate-crime hoax.

TMZ also report that their law enforcement sources say that prosecutors intend to seek a felony indictment from a grand jury for filing a false police report. But that has yet to be confirmed by other news media.

2. Bernie is officially running for president! No one seems to care that, if elected, he will become an octogenarian during his first term in office.

I say that if Joe Biden decides to sit out, then Bernie becomes the frontrunner and he will be hard to beat. He has name recognition, plus he’s less scary to white voters than an angry non-white like Kamala Harris. (Obama’s secret to success was that he wasn’t angry.)

  1. Bernie is old as hell and a weirdo. Kamala will beat him in the primaries, assuming she’s not a total moron. Biden would stand a better chance than Bernie.

  2. Bernie gets trounced in a National Election due to non-white Democrats yawning at him.

    And you thought the black turnout was laggy for Hillary – and she and Bill had only spent 35+ years kissing up and pandering to the black community.

    And Bernie has a long ways to go on mastering the new identity politics of the left – he still thinks that economic class is more important than race. (lol) He’s still stick on a 70’s Democratic platform.

    Bernie looking might uncomfortable when asked about “racial blind spots” — of course Hillary has the ready-made, highly crafted and focus group tested libspeak answer ready to go:

  3. If Biden drops out his 30% will probably go to the most popular establishment candidates, erasing Bernie’s lead.

  4. “No one seems to care that, if elected, he will become an octogenarian during his first term in office.”

    Should we care? It’s not like the president has to run marathons in office. It’s basically an office job- sit in meetings, talk to people, read documents, and Bernie seems plenty fit enough to do that. If something does suddenly happen to his health, we have a well-established procedure for that- the vice president takes over.

    • Old people can change a lot in 4 years. The president developing old age paranoia in office is a recipe for disaster.

  5. White republican proves love angry politicians. White democrat swpls love polite non threatening politicians. Why is this?

  6. It’s Warren/O’Rourke.

    I may start up again at Predict It and put my money where my mouth is. I netted about $300 last time around.

      I’ve got a friend that put $60 on Trump winning the GOP nomination back in 2016 and he got paid at 70-to-1.

    • Lol. Chief Stolen Grievance won’t get the nom, she’s irreparably damaged goods — the Democrats might champion trans-sexuality, but they’re not ready for trans-racialism. It’ll be Michelle “Michael Robinson” Obama and “Creepy Uncle” Joe Biden.

      • I’ve reconsidered since she came out with this wacky child care thing. The billionaires are not going to go for that. Plus after a few minutes her personality gets awfully grating. And Bernie has entered the race.

        I still think that O’Rourke is going to be in there somewhere.

        Joe Biden and Michelle Obama are not going to be on the ticket.

      • O’Rourke is a gomer, but he might be an okay VP pick. He does not seem like the right type though. The perfect VP is strong and silent like Mike Pence. Beto seems like he would want to talk a lot.

  7. I’ve notice that race-obsessed alt-righters are very confident of Kamala’s inevitable victory.

  8. I actually like Bernie and think if he was strong a Bernie presidency with a GOP congress could work out well.

    Unfortunately he is a wimp and if he became president all the 30-40 year old woke activists would end up running everything. That means unlimited immigration, soft on crime, focus on transgender issues, etc.

    However the woke activists would not regulate wealth-transference industries like Wall Street because those industries are now more left wing than right wing. Also Bernie could be tricked into foreign wars with sob tales of how the “children of XXXistan” need us to save them.

  9. They did not cancel Roseanne’s show. They just changed the name after firing her.

  10. If Kamala wins, lots of Willie Brown ‘I nailed that’ comments. If Bernie wins we get his ‘60s soft porn stories. As far as humor goes it’s a win-win.

  11. The weirdest thing about SJW-ism is it’s belief that blacks are substantially harmed by the negative opinion of whites when the group is so characteristically self absorbed that it beggars belief that they would be so affected. Here’s a characteristicly self-absorbed remark from Grammy winning rapper Cardinal B “I feel like he f–ed up Black History Month, bro.”

  13. @Gothamette My cousin posted an article on Facebook about Warren’s child care plan and it got a decidedly negative reaction. Only one of his friends approved, the rest didn’t like it at all. His friends are wealthy professionals who are moderately liberal..all voted for Hillary. There is also growing consensus among his friends that the left is overreaching and all their crazy ideas are going to make it easy for Trump to get re-elected.

  14. I didn’t give Bernie much thought. When he ran the last time, he was the only Bernie. Now, there are several Bernie’s running, in any flavor you want. Still.. he did manage to raise 6 million in one day. That surprised me.

    • There’s no Hillary running, and Bernie has the most name recognition and is next in line.
