The obsession continues. A CNN analyst blame former President Trump for Will Smith’s violent behavior when he slapped comedian Chris Rock in the face during the 94th Annual Academy Awards.
Debate is running rampant in the media as to whether or not the slap was staged. It might as well have been considering it was the only mentionable moment in the entire poorly rated awards show.
Nonetheless, CNN’s Asha Rangappa says the rest of the Hollywood elite only stuck around the Dolby Theater after the attack because of Trump. “Soo did like anyone walk out after that happened??? Or are we getting an independent psychological case study on how Trump got normalized?” Rangappa questioned on Twitter.

The CNN analyst has a history of making completely asinine longshot comments about completely unrelated situations. Last year Rangappa compared a Southwest pilot who objected to President Biden’s vaccine mandate to an ISIS sympathizer.
After news broke that a Southwest pilot ended his flight by saying “Let’s Go Brandon” on the intercom, Rangappa tweeted, “As an experiment, I’d love for an @SouthwestAir pilot to say ‘Long live ISIS’ before taking off. My guess is that 1) the plane would be immediately grounded; 2) the pilot fired; and 3) a statement issued by the airline within a matter of hours.”
On Monday Rangappa also tweeted that Trump fans are sending her hate male because Fox News reported on her Twitter comments. She then proceeded to call Trump voters stupid:
“The MAGA hate emails have begun, which tells me that the below tweet has made its way to the Breitbart ecosystem. The sad part is that they are so stupid they don’t realize I’m not comparing Smith to Trump, I’m comparing the audience to them.”
The question now is, will Hollywood elites cancel Rangappa and demand her resignation because she had the audacity to compare them to, gasp, Trump followers? Let’s hope so.

Audit Finds Half of President Biden’s Twitter Followers are Fake Bots
President Joe Biden has an impressive 22.2 million followers on Twitter; but apparently half of them are bots. According to an audit tool from software company SparkToro, “49.3 percent of account’s following the official @POTUS Twitter account are ‘fake followers” reports Newsweek.
SparkToro defines “fake” as “accounts that are unreachable and will not see the account’s tweets (either because they’re spam, bots, propaganda, etc. or because they’re no longer active on Twitter.”
Analysis was conducted based on factors such as location issues, default profile images and new users. The information is of particular importance as Elon Musk has expressed his concern at the overwhelming number of fake accounts on the giant platform. Specifically, he claimed 20 percent of Twitter accounts were “fake/spam accounts” and that the figure is “4 times what Twitter claims” or even higher.
“Musk said early on Tuesday that his $44-billion deal to purchase the social media company could not go ahead until issues with fake accounts were resolved and appeared to criticize Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal” adds Newsweek.
The accusation put the acquisition in jeopardy, with the two men exchanging a series of tweets about the fake accounts issue on Monday.
The back-and-forth comes after Musk tweeted Friday that the deal to buy Twitter was placed on hold pending details supporting calculation that spam/fake accounts represent less than 5% of users.
“My offer was based on Twitter’s SEC filings being accurate,” Musk wrote. “Yesterday, Twitter’s CEO publicly refused to show proof of <5%. This deal cannot move forward until he does.”
“We suspend over half a million spam accounts every day, usually before any of you even see them on Twitter. We also lock millions of accounts each week that we suspect may be spam, if they can’t pass human verification challenges (captchas, phone verification, etc),” Agrawal wrote.
SparkToro’s tool also found that of Musk’s 93.3 million followers, 70.2 percent of those accounts are fake.
