The Trump administration has been foaming at the mouth with the Jussie Smollett story. Although they have made a career out of lying to the America people, just the idea that an actor and pop singer lied — which has not been proven and the Chicago Police Department have had to shut down unfounded claims — is the perfect smokescreen for their nonstop corruption. Kellyanne Conway is the last person to use Smollett to deflect.

While talking about former FBI director Andrew McCabe, who recently said Trump is possibly a Russian asset, Conway randomly brought up Smollett, “I’ll tell you, whether it’s Jussie Smollett or Andrew McCabe, the media just loves to imbue credibility onto people if they bear anti-Trump gifts.” Watch the foolishness below:

This from the person who made up “alternative facts” and the “Bowling Green massacre.”

On Feb. 9, while walking to a subway, two men reportedly yelled racial and homophobic slurs at the actor after he exited the restaurant, investigators told The Hollywood Reporter. They allegedly punched and poured bleach on him while one of the suspects put a rope around his neck. As they fled the scene, Smollett told police they said, “This is MAGA country.”

On Jan. 22, threatening letters directed at Smollett were reportedly sent to Fox Studios in Chicago. The cutout letters read, “You will die black f**.” See below:

There have been rumors that the attack was a hoax and he worked with two Nigerian men to set up the assault. However, the 36-year-old actor and singer made it clear to Robin Roberts on “Good Morning America” that he was not lying, despite mixed reporting from the notoriously corrupt Chicago Police Department and online rumors, saying, “For me, the main thing was the idea that I somehow switched up my story, you know? And that somehow maybe I added a little extra trinket, you know, of the MAGA thing. I didn’t need to add anything like that. They called me a f—-, they called me a n—-. There’s no which way you cut it. I don’t need some MAGA hat as the cherry on top of some racist sundae.”

See a clip below:

The Chicago Police Department has dropped the ball from the beginning with their handling of the case in the media. First, a police spokesperson said there was no footage of the assailants. Then, hours later, there were two “persons of interest” on video.

As of now, the police want to speak to Jussie. Media Pros 24/7, a firm representing the actor, said as of yesterday, “There are no plans for Jussie Smollett to meet  with Chicago police today. Any news reports suggesting otherwise are inaccurate. Smollett’s attorneys will keep an active dialogue going with Chicago police on his behalf. We have no further comment today.”
