President Trump Weighs in on Jussie Smollett Case | TMZ NEWSROOM TODAY

The bizarre outcome of the Jussie Smollett case is now on President Trump's radar, and as federal investigations begin … he's calling the dropping of the charges an "embarrassment" to the nation. Trump's Thursday morning tweet storm included one about the sweet deal the Cook County State's Attorney's Office handed Smollett — dropping the 16 felony counts for allegedly lying to police after he did 18 hours of charitable work last weekend.

    • The number of people tired of people soliciting “likes” as if they’re worth something…👇!

  1. Jussie Smollett new book. Hoax 101: how to burn the city of Chicago and get away with it.

    • The blonde chick needs to refer to President Trump as President Donald Trump. Not Donald Trump

  2. I may not like Trump but he is right about this. This guy needs to be charged and convicted.

  3. I notice most of the Anti-Trump comments here come from fake accts. Don’t be fooled.

    • +D. shawn-O-maC Do you know who Roy Cohn was? Politics is about doing and returning favors. Now why would Trump having a nation of people to choose from pick Alexander Acosta to be in charge of child labor of all things? Smollett is a liar and a moron but he is still superior to Trump. A war criminal and pervert. A puppet to the military industrial complex, Saudi Arabia, and Israel. Trump is a human cockroach. Stop projecting. Not everyone was raised by their idiot box.

  4. I can’t stand R Kelly but Michael shouldn’t be talking about someone serving life in prison when he’s facing the same thing!!!

    • He won’t he has to leave something for the democrats to excel at besides coruption, lying and deceiving.

    • Kristofer Lee ‘A’. ‘..a Federal investigation…’, not “.. an Federal investigation…”

  5. Plunge skyrim into darkness and now we are to put jussie smollett down. Death to the storm cloaks

  6. Move on the case closed cant do nothing bout it like travon martin case closed

  7. If It was a Gay White Guy doing and then getting away with it!
    We would have burned cars, and looting along with beatings and destruction


  9. The irony that he says r Kelly gon rot in prison… well if THAT ain’t the kettle!
