image for Jussie Smollett Update: Trump Supporters Shocked at Spectacle of Entertainer Lying to the Public
Trump Critical of Jussie Smollett and Media

Chicago - Television star Jussie Smollett was arrested Thursday and charged with lying to the public and law enforcement about an alleged attack which two brothers from Nigeria apparently helped him set up.

Reaction was swift from the people on social media, particularly among Trumpist Republicans who were outraged that an entertainment industry figure would use race, politics, deceit and fabrication to divide people and take advantage of their differences to further his own career.

"I'm outraged that someone would create a false story about our side. Obviously, those nasty Dems and Liberals are behind this," said one man at a recent MAGA rally. "Our exalted leader was right to criticize Smollett and the biased media who covered the story. He would never even consider using race, fear and division to help himself!"

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
