Donald Trump has some interesting comparisons.
During the fundraiser at his Chicago hotel, Donald Trump not only took shots at the actor but also the Chicago prosecutors who dropped criminal charges against Smollett.
“Then you have the case of this wise guy, Jussie Smollett who beat up himself,” Trump said. “And he said MAGA country did it — MAGA country … That’s a hate crime and it’s a scam. It’s a real big scam just like the impeachment of your president is a scam.” Trump also claimed: “Smollett is still trying to get away with it. He would have been better off if he paid his $100,000 bill,” CNN quotes.
While Jussie has not responded, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot called Donald Trump comments during the speech “ignorant buffoonery.”
“It’s no surprise that @realDonaldTrump brought his insulting, ignorant buffoonery to Chicago. Luckily, in this city, we know the truth and we will not let anyone — no matter how high the office — denigrate who we are as a people or our status as a welcoming city,” Lightfoot tweeted following Trump’s speech.
