The Jussie Smollett case just took another bizarre turn.
Fox News reported that Jussie Smollett‘s attorney Tina Glandian offered an explanation as to why the “Empire” star said his alleged attackers were white while also dismissed President Trump’s announcement that the FBI and the Justice Department will review the “outrageous” decision to drop charges in the actor’s case.
Glandian told “Today’s” Savannah Guthrie on Thursday that Smollett did not lie when he told police he believed his alleged attackers were white because they were possibly wearing white makeup to disguise themselves.
Smollett previously told police he was attacked by two men wearing ski masks on Jan. 29 and he could make out they had “pale or white skin” around their eyes. According to police, Smollett hired African-American brothers Abel and Ola Osundairo to stage the hate crime but Smollett has maintained this to be false and his charges were dropped on Tuesday.

RUSH: Have you heard the Smollett business? Have you heard this? Jussie Smollett’s lawyer… Wait ’til you hear this, if you haven’t heard it. Jussie Smollett’s lawyer says that he, Smollett, thought the Nigerian brothers were white because they were wearing makeup. The Nigerian brothers put on whiteface! Smollett thought that they were white!
That’s why he thought that they were Trump agitators. For crying out loud! Would you look at the literal pollution of everything public in this country that the left ends up touching? Whiteface? The Nigerian brothers put on white face to make Smollett think that they were Trumpists! So the racism triples down now, in addition to the insanity.
