Rep. Maxine Waters blames Trump for 'MAGA hate attack' on her Empire star friend Jussie Smollett in Chicago, claiming the President is 'emboldening' racists

  • Jussie Smollett was 'attacked by two men in ski masks on Tuesday in Chicago'
  • Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters has blamed President Trump for the incident
  • The California congresswoman insists 'he is dog whistling every day'
Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters has blamed President Donald Trump for the alleged attack on Empire star Jussie Smollett.
Speaking to news site The Giro, the California congresswoman insisted the president was ‘separating and dividing, and he’s basically emboldening those folks who feel this way.’
It comes after the 35-year-old actor, who came out as gay to Ellen in 2015, said he was set upon by two men in ski masks at 2am on Tuesday in Chicago.
He claims the pair assaulted him, hurled racist and homophobic slurs at him, doused him with an ‘unknown chemical substance’ previously reported as bleach and put a thin rope around his neck.
