    • The poor black girl shot in Houston and all that nonsense was right before Covington as well.

    • Tim Oakley – let’s not forget all the fake news. The front cover of Time Magazine showing Trump and the little girl that was supposedly deported. Don’t forget about the picture of kids Behind cages from 2014. Let’s not forget how Trump made fun of a disabled man allegedly. Also, the fake Muslim ban, Trump calling Mexicans monsters, the inauguration crowd, the shitholecountries thing, Russian collusion, invoking the 25th Amendment, the white guy that did the drive-by shooting recently but turns out it was a black male and then forgotten about, DAVID HOGG and much more. The media truly is the enemy.

    • Not when you are the lefistgay run media trying to sway public opinion against Trump.. The DNC only cares about illegals and the sexually confused

  1. He wants u 2 believe in Chicago ,a democratic city,2am in the morning,wind chill factor 10 below zero 2 MAGA supporters carrying a noose and bleach attacked him,,,lol,,did u see earlier that night how drunk he was tweeting out how he’s muthrfukin stuck on a plane ,,I’m not buying it ,,cameras are everywhere ,show the footage

  2. Where is the video… So there are angry white men, walking around Chicago, with bleach and nooses during evening hours… Ok…

    • 2 am. Here they’re reporting broken ribs but didn’t call the police til 40 minutes after and took himself to hospital. It’s totally fake

    • he got thumped by other black men after trying to buy sex but rather than create more anger from blacks against gays (Kevin Hart) he decided to exploit the assault to sway the up coming elections…

    • No its not , Illinois racists have acquired Klingon Cloaking technology with Illinois Pension funds from the Ferengi

  3. I have some questions? What time does Subway close? He’s all alone.
    It’s severe freezing cold temp ( even in Cali we do Uber eats) how did he know they were White, if they had masks? No camera footage? Sorry watching too much Law & Order Criminal Intent.

  4. The police aren’t reporting broken ribs. This is a total setup. Fake news. You got played tmz

  5. Lmao tanked his career like that red head Kathy Griffin I think her name was? Isn’t it sad how he’s sorta close to the spotlight being in Hollywood, but to get attention he stages an incident like this? Like you could be a good actor to get fame, but he chose staging a racist act for a one time use lol. I hope the hammer of justice smacks him down to the one line role in a small play he belongs in.

  6. TMZ isn’t getting “played.” They are playing easily manipulated low IQ individuals for click$. πŸ˜”

  7. It took Cory and Kamala less than 24 hours to tweet about this…regarding “their bill” – get it people, they are PLAYING YOU!!! Please wait for the facts….Please…. enough fake news already… kids – children were hurt. Please stop.

  8. That’s odd. I live in Chicago and I saw Brian Seltzer and Anderson Cooper buying bleach and a rope at the Home Depot on North Ave that afternoon.

  9. I Can’t With This Story!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    Where’s The Violins?! Why aren’t They Playing!!?!!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
