Donald Trump was a man of few words–for a change–when he finally broke his silence over Jussie Smollett’s attack by two masked earlier this week. The attack is being called a hate crime as the attackers yelled “MAGA country” when they fled after hurling homophobic and racist slurs while brutalizing him. When asked in the Oval Office today by a reporter he referred to the incident as simply, “horrible.”

President Trump has been keeping up on the news about the Jussie Smollett attack, and says it’s horrible.

The President spoke Thursday morning from the Oval Office and when a reporter asked him about the “Empire” star’s case, he replied, “That I can tell you is horrible. I’ve seen it … last night. It doesn’t get worse, as far as I’m concerned.”

It was a pretty brief response … he didn’t elaborate on any details of the case.

Remember, Jussie says his attackers yelled, “MAGA country” as they fled after beating him, pouring bleach on him and putting a rope around his neck. 

Unsurprisingly, Trump did not mention the involvement of his MAGA slogan in the attack. In other news, the Chicago Police Department has confimed Jussie indeed had a rope around his neck during the attack. This comes on the heels of naysayers and skeptics of the validity of Jussie’s attack. One of them, surprisingly, has been former Love & Hip-Hop Hollywood star, Milan Christopher.

A woman who lives in Jussie Smollett‘s apartment building told cops she saw a suspicious man — whom she said looked like a “redneck” — loitering just outside the entrance to the building an hour and a half before Jussie says he was attacked.

The woman — who asked us not to use her name — tells TMZ, she walked out of the building at 12:30 AM Tuesday to take her dogs out and saw the man near the door, pacing between the parking garage and entrance, looking agitated and smoking a cigarette. She says, “He looked out of place.” He was a white man with scruff on his face wearing a blue winter beanie, a blue zip-up sweatshirt with a hood and blue jeans that were too short, exposing “thick, grey hunting socks” with camel-colored dress shoes.

She says she noticed what looked like a rope, or a clothesline, protruding from the bottom of his sweatshirt, made of white and blue material.  

She says he was staring at another man about 300 feet away, who was standing near another entrance to the building.

She says she got “creeped out” by the man, and after 5 minutes she retreated back into the building.

The woman says she went to sleep and woke up at 4 AM to go to the gym, and noticed a lot of security. She says the concierge told her Jussie was attacked, and when she told him what she saw, the concierge implored her to call a detective and gave her two phone numbers. She made contact that afternoon and downloaded a detective.

As we reported, cops have released photos of 2 persons of interest. We do not know if one of them is the person the woman saw.

Chicago PD sources tell us they have looked at numerous videos in the area in question, but have not seen any footage of an altercation.

We really hope they find these men. MAGA supporters or not. A crime was committed and they are the perpetrators!

Pinkett Smith, 47, told People in a new interview that she “never wanted to get married” — but felt pressured into it by her family.

“I had never seen a happy marriage,” she told People, saying she “adored” her partner, but did not want to marry.

Her mother, known as Gammy, called Will crying — which Pinkett Smith said was “infuriating” — and the meddling mom said “You have to get married.”

The couple married on New Year’s Eve in 1997 when Pinkett Smith was in her first trimester of pregnancy with son Jaden, now 20. The pair also share daughter Willow, 18. And Will has a son, Trey, 26, from his first marriage to Sheree Zampino.

Pinkett Smith told People that she’s happy she did get married, but that she and Smith, 50, still do not label themselves as married.

“It’s more of a life partnership … I don’t own him. He doesn’t own me. He has to be his own person first, and vice versa … Love is freedom,” Pinkett Smith told People.

We are glad The Smiths have worked out and are continuing to make each other better people. Kudos to Jada for being so transparent!

On Friday, Variety reported that actress Melissa McCarthy is in “early talks” to join the project as the tentacled villain from the original 1989 movie.

But fans on Twitter immediately put up the “Truth Hurts” singer as the perfect person for the role.

Lizzo agreed. She even shared a 2018 video of herself dressed up as Ursula, and singing a rendition of “Poor Unfortunate Souls” from the movie.

“I’M URSULA. PERIOD,” she wrote alongside the video.

We have to say we are #TeamLizzo when it comes to her playing Ursula. She has the size, voice, charisma, and she’s a really amazing singer. Melissa needs to show us she’s got the chops to pull off Poor, Unfortunate Souls. It’s easy all all she has to do is perform a few bars and won’t cost her anything–but her voice!

Africa

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are heading to Africa — this time as a family of three!

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex confirmed on Thursday that they will carry out a royal tour in Africa this fall. In a post on their @SussexRoyal Instagram page, they also hinted that son Archie, born on May 6, will be coming along: “This will be their first official tour as a family!”

They will visit the country of South Africa, with Prince Harry also making stops in Malawi and Angola. He’ll also do a “short working visit in Botswana on route to the other countries,” according to the Instagram post.

“The Duke and Duchess are really looking forward to meeting so many of you on the ground and continuing to raise awareness of the high impact work local communities are doing across the commonwealth and beyond,” the couple wrote on Instagram.

We love that Prince Archie’s first trip is to Africa, it will let him connect with part of history as his mother is a biracial woman, and his maternal grandmother is clearly Black. We cannot wait to see the pictures!
