WASHINGTON – President Trump in a tweet yesterday thanked actor Jussie Smollett, known for his role in the Fox drama series Empire, for ‘exposing the FAKE NEWS MEDIA and their BIAS’.
On January 29, Smollett alleged that he was attacked in Chicago in what was initially investigated as a hate crime. Unnamed police sources later alleged Smollett orchestrated the attack. Smollett was charged yesterday with a class 4 felony for falsifying a police report.
