Jussie Smollett set the bar for fake MAGA attacks, apparently. The ‘Empire’ star will forever be known as the actor who reportedly faked a racist attack and blamed Trump supporters.

Well, police say they have another case just like Smollett’s. Where a former NFL player was caught literally red-handed framing Trump supporters with a staged ‘hate crime’.  Thankfully, it didn’t take the police long to piece together what really happened and the hoaxer is currently in jail. He was arrested for… you guessed it, staging a hate crime. Among other charges.

Police say that Edawn Coughman reported a hate crime to his insurance company. He claimed that MAGA supporters had broken into his Georgia restaurant and vandalized it as well as stole some high dollar items.

BUT…

According to The Blaze, in his truck, they discovered televisions that looked like they had been pulled out of walls, and became suspicious.

“The brackets were still attached and there was still drywall attached to the brackets, meaning, someone took them off very quickly,” said Cpl. Michele Pihera.

When police went to the restaurant, they found signs of a burglary and racial slurs spray-painted inside the business, as well as “MAGA,” which refers to the Trump campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again.”

Police also say that Coughman had spray-paint on his hands, and that the paint on the racial slurs in his restaurant was still fresh when they got there.

“He had reported this incident to his insurance company prior to officers conducting that first pull-over,” Pihera explained.

“He was attempting to leave that shopping center when our officers conducted that felony stop. Everything lined up for this perfect arrest,” she added.

The good news is that these false reports aren’t fooling the police. The bad news is we expect more to come and those who want to believe them- will. We can only hope the justice system will make an example out of the real criminals to prevent any copycats.
