Jussie Smollett, an actor whose father is Jewish and mother African American Christian, was hospitalized after being attacked by two men who brutally beat him, poured an unknown chemical (which some cites identify as bleach) on him, wrapped a rope around his neck, and told him, "This is MAGA country."

I have no skin in the game either way, but to be precise, according to the article you posted, they don't deny it, they say they don't have that information.

All of the major news outlets have stopped running the "MAGA country" detail pending corroboration.

I feel horrible that this happened, but the idea that Chicago is "MAGA country" is pretty funny. There are maybe five Trump voters in the city, and I went to bed early last night. I can't personally provide an alibi for Rachel Fulton Brown, but it doesn't seem her type, either. My DD, Clementine, was on a plane to EY last night. So we really only have to account for a few more people.

While Clinton won the city handily, there were more than 132,000 Trump voters in Chicago so I don't think Fox can claim to account for all of them.

You think your daughter would assault a man and place a noose around his neck?

Or you just think its hysterical that it happened?

I do apologize for reporting what was in the media at the time. Let's see what happens as the story develops.

No offense, but what on earth are you thinking?

I made it extremely clear that I was making a joke about Chicago being characterized as "MAGA country" -- not about the assault itself. Your attempt to portray my comment as inappropriate is ridiculously dishonest. But since you're hiding behind Amother, you already know that.

Lol! 132K votes? In Chicago, that means about five people. 😁

Maybe, if Chicago had a population of 42 people.

Statistically about 1 in 8 people in Chicago voted for Trump. It's a large number. Not unthinkable that out of 132,000 there could be two bad apples.

Um, you do realize I was joking about Chicago's long-standing reputation for voter fraud, right?

Are you saying someone is inflating the number of Republican voters in Chicago?

Most of these stories have turned out to be hoaxes, including every one of the hujab ones. Let's wait and see if it's corroborated.

Lol! I don't know how many voters are registered. With a population of about 6 million in the metro area, I'm guessing we have no more than 200-300 million voters. 😁

So apparently Mr. Smollett didn't claim his attackers were white, used homophobic slurs, or were MAGA aficionados. Apparently an anonymous source told TMZ these details. TMZ, for those of you who are blessedly unaware, is a celebrity gossip site known for their cozy relationship with Kris Jenner and breathless coverage of feuds between various rappers.

Of course, broken analog clocks are right twice a day, but so far it sounds like Mr. Smollett was attacked by some generic criminals.

Shocking. Let's just wait for the articles about what we can learn from this even though this example isn't true.

According to this article, Jussie himself told police that the attackers said MAGA.
