We’ve all seen the video from Sunday evening of 69-year-old North Carolina doctor David Dao being “re-accommodated” on United Airlines Flight 3411, but have you heard who “Star Trek” actor John Cho is blaming for the incident?

He’s not blaming United Airlines. He’s not blaming the Chicago aviation security officers. Instead, he’s blaming someone completely unrelated to United Airlines who lives over 700 miles away from the location of the flight: President Donald J. Trump.

That’s right. Dr. Dao was left bloody and injured after being forcibly removed from Flight 3411 by Chicago aviation security, and instead of looking to those involved, Hollywood is looking to blame the president of the United States.

On Monday, John Cho tweeted, “It’s hard not to see a connection between the environment Trump has created and what happened on that @united flight.”

Is he serious? It’s actually quite impossible to find a connection between President Trump and the United Airlines incident. What is John Cho even talking about? Is he delusional?

Leave it to someone from Hollywood to come up with this ridiculousness. If we use the illogical thought process used by John Cho, it’s President Donald J. Trump’s fault if someone gets mugged or robbed tonight. Clearly, this makes absolutely no sense and is supported by nothing but liberal fiction.

The only people to blame in the Flight 3411 incident are those at United Airlines and the Chicago aviation security officers on board the aircraft, but this truth clearly does not fit into the rhetoric that Hollywood has been busy pushing out over the past 18 months.

Blame President Trump. Attack President Trump. Lie about President Trump. Wake up. Do it all again. Today, it’s the United Airlines “re-accommodation” incident. What will Hollywood blame President Trump for tomorrow?

Wake up, America. See through to truth.
