*The latest on the A$AP Rocky situation is the orange a-hole in the White House is saying he will personally guarantee bail for the jailed rapper if Swedish authorities release him.
“Just had a very good call with @SwedishPM Stefan Lofven who assured me that American citizen A$AP Rocky will be treated fairly. Likewise, I assured him that A$AP was not a flight risk and offered to personally vouch for his bail …,” Trump said in a tweet from this morning.
The situation is pretty grim for A$AP Rocky. Friday night a judge in Sweden ruled that the rapper is a flight risk and therefore can’t be let out of jail while the case grinds on, reports TMZ.
If you need a reminder, not a single charge has been filed against him, but A$AP Rocky has been jailed for more than 2 weeks! Something is obviously not right in this situation. Prosecutors claim they need another week to investigate — even though there’s video that shows what happened or didn’t happen. Something clearly ain’t right. There’s no logical or legal reason A$AP Rocky should not have been released.
This seems like the obvious time to remind folks that a white rapper named G-Easy got himself in a whole bunch of serious trouble in Sweden about a year ago. This dude was arrested in Stockholm after punching a security guard in a club and snorting coke using a $100 bill.
Check this out. He was arrested for assault, possession of drugs and use of narcotics. There was no video of the attack, yet prosecutors allowed him to strike a deal a day-and-a-half later … he pled guilty to violent resistance, a crime of violence against an official and illegal drug possession. His sentence — a $10k fine and probation. He was also ordered to pay the security guard $900.
Even G-Easy can tell you what’s going on and it obvious. Here’s what he posted to social media about his situation and A$AP Rocky’s.
“This is the sad truth … The difference between me and Rocky’s treatment and process in Sweden brings to mind two concepts that disgustingly go hand in hand: white privilege and systematic racism.”
And we have to ask what else can it be other than racism that’s preventing Swedish authorities from releasing the rapper?
Prosecutors also showed their hand by sending out a press release saying they plan to indict him … so why the charade of pretending the investigation is continuing? When they were asked about by TMZ, they said they mistakenly put that info in the press release and then removed it. yeah, right.
Here’s the bottom line, even though Trump and the State Dept. have made a huge effort to get A$AP Rocky out of jail, Swedish authorities are basically saying screw you, we don’t care, Donald Trump.
As we reported earlier, Kanye called Trump Friday and made a plea for the President to get involved.
The cold hard truth is that A$AP Rocky faces 6 years in prison if he’s charged and convicted of assaulting a man who assaulted him first.
