Following the trial, Jussie Smollet was charged with five counts of disorderly conduct, each New York Times, and now faces 15 years in prison. With Smollett including “MAGA country” comments in his fabricated attack, it’s no surprise that Donald Trump has something to say about it. Speaking to Fox News’ Laura Ingraham on her show, “The Ingraham Angle,” on Friday, Trump expressed his disdain for Smollett after viewing clips from news networks that link Smollett to Trump.
“Mr. President, you just heard the blame on you in 2019 for Jussie Smollett’s fake race attack” (via Newsweek) Ingraham said. “Of course, he was found guilty with 5 out of 6 accounts, lying to the police,” she said, consulting Trump. “It’s a disgrace what happened,” Trump said. “He said that MAGA country tried to hang him, that MAGA country sucks. And if someone, if he’s a Republican, if he’s on the other side, he’s going to have to. 25 years in prison for hate crimes.” Trump described the case as “too crazy” and appeared pleased with the jury’s verdict. “But the jury got it and they handled it very strongly, and he was convicted of nearly all counts.”
Smollett’s court time may be over, but there’s sure to be plenty of criticism and commentary from Hollywood and beyond.
