    Jacob Wohl just took a page from Smollet's playbook by making a fake Twitter account and sending himself a threat using that fake account then filing a police report about his fake threat. Smollet and Wohl are neck and neck in the race for idiot of the year... Who will win?

    First thing I did when I heard this story was to google Subway in Chicago, and wow, they do have 24 hour stores in downtown Chicago. So I was wondering if this was a true story: 2 white men in MAGA hats, in downtown Chicago at 2:00 am, in -20 degree temperature, carrying a lynch rope, carting a bottle of bleach, calling out someone they did not know a gay, saying they were Trump supporters, identified through their face masks as white, beating a man who only had a few scratches, calling the man the N word. This had to either a SNL script or a Maxine Waters and the progressive party commentary on America. I had to think about this, for ...!

    It's because there is a strident victim culture right now, especially among the left-leaning culture. Being a victim has manifold advantages. The fact that Trevor Noah cannot imagine why he would attempt this is completely disingenuous. You perpetuate the very victim culture that Smollett was attempting to tap into.
