BREAKING NEWS – Chicago, Illinois – In an open letter to President Trump, Jussie Smollett challenges the Commander in Chief:
Dear Mr. President,
I am contacting you in regards to the recent events in my life that I know you are aware of. I have a proposal. If you promise to pardon me after my upcoming likely conviction, I will consider toning down my criticism of you and your administration. To pardon me will confirm that you are not the racist that I have often labeled you. And since my career is likely damaged beyond repair and it’s matter of time before I’m penniless and living in the streets, to further your public redemption, give me 10% of the profits generated by the MAGA hats. This is a teachable moment that I think warrants your immediate attention. The ball is in your court. Let’s be friends. What say you?
