    My first thought was, "Is he related to Ian?" Apparently not, since their last names aren't quite identical.

    Rapaport? Doesn't look or sound familiar at all.
    I remember him from being a bit actor in TV shows.

    Most are heavily invested in that fantasy and loathe to ever abandon it. I'm confident that they'll just ignore the confession and continue pushing the lie.

    NEW: Michael Rapaport admits he promoted Trump Charlottesville ‘very fine people’ hoax

    Wow... careful, because in the actual video, there's some pretty harsh language Including F-Bombs....

    but these guys are pretty much admitting that the Democrat Party stinks out loud, and Rapaport admits he flat out lied.

    He admits the "fine people on both sides" narrative was a hoax.

    Anti-Trump actor and activist Michael Rapaport has now acknowledged he peddled fake news about the Charlottesville narrative surrounding former President Donald Trump when he said there were "fine people on both sides."

    "I was wrong,” Rapaport commented on the Patrick Bet David (PBD) podcast about the Charlottesville narrative.

    Rapaport has recently even said that voting for Trump is now "on the table" because of Biden's actions with the Israel-Hamas war, as well as when a group of illegal immigrants beat up cops in New York City.

    “I’m not voting for Biden, I’m not voting for Kamala,” Rapaport said to the other hosts on PBD. He said he would also not vote for California Gov. Gavin Newsom if he were to run.

    Rapaport said that he used to "rant" about Charlottesville all the time when the media portrayed Trump as calling neo-Nazis "very fine people" in April 2017.

    In context, the former president had been talking about those that were not neo-Nazis as "very fine people" and had previously stated, "We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence" earlier in the same well-known interview.
