NAACP Blames President Donald Trump for Alleged Racist, Homophobic Attack on Actor

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored Persons (NAACP), the country’s most influential civil rights organization, has blamed President Donald Trump for Tuesday morning’s attack on actor Jussie Smollett.

The Empire star was allegedly attacked by two men wearing ski masks in the early hours of Jan. 29 in Chicago. TMZ first reported that Smollett had identified the two attackers as white, and that he had told police that they had yelled, “This is MAGA country!”.

However, the Chicago Police Department has disputed that he told them that, at least initially, or identified the race of the attackers, who allegedly used racist and homophobic language and placed a rope around Smollett’s neck. The Daily Beast reported that Chicago police said the race and gender of the alleged assailants remained unknown.

Additionally, in their initial report, Jussie Smollett did not tell police his attackers yelled “MAGA.” Chicago Police PIO added: “I’m not saying it’s not true. He could have remembered later, but he did not tell officers that in the initial report.” 2/2

Well lets see, he was under a bridge at 1:45 am offering oral sex to a stranger, and got beaten up by a couple of other guys.

How is this President Trumps fault?

Fun facts that media is ignoring, store bought bleach freezes at 20 degrees and it was 15 degrees above zero that night! Also the subway near where he was shuts down at midnight kinda hard for the assailants to escape on it as he said.
Then just where in that town would you ever find many Trump supporters much less two on one night!

They lie constantly. Just like hands up dont' shoot Trayvon was an alter boy this is another one of their lies. They will again prove just what trash they are when this is proven to be fake and they sweep it under the rug. This is why their youth are slaughtering each other. Zero positive role models. Very few value honesty which is their major problem. Their complete lack of morals prevents them from admitting just what wastes they have become.
