Donald Trump tweeted this morning that the FBI and Department of Justice will look into the sudden dismissal of charges for filing a false police report against Empire star Jussie Smollett.
The Trumpster’s tiny thumbs typed out, “FBI & DOJ to review the outrageous Jussie Smollett case in Chicago. It is an embarrassment to our Nation!”

In case it’s not obvious, Trump really likes the Jussie Smollett case because for him and his base it fits into the Trumpian/Fox News narrative that racism against minorities is fake but racism against white people is real.

By claiming a false attack, Smollett tried to exploit the hate @realDonaldTrump has stirred. Now, predictably, Trump is moving to exploit Smollett’s exploitation.
Talk about a vicious circle! https://t.co/oQzPi2W9Im

When Trump says the Smollett case “is an embarrassment to our Nation” that’s the pot calling the kettle black except Trump is an embarrassment to our Nation and Smollett is not so it’s really like the pot calling something that’s not black black.
