Donald Trump has hopped on Twitter to demand that the FBI and the Department of Justice review the Jussie Smollett case.

Smollett had all the charges of disorderly conduct against him dropped and was told by authorities that he would also have his record expunged. Smollett had been indicted on 16 counts after it was alleged that he staged a hate crime in order to get a hike in salary from the Fox show, 'Empire.'

"FBI & DOJ to review the outrageous Jussie Smollett case in Chicago. It is an embarrassment to our Nation!" he tweeted.

And while some agreed with Trump, many felt that it was hypocritical of Trump to call Smollett and embarrassment, well, because... Trump.
