‘Jussie’s Lie’: The Daily Show Creates Mock Trailer for the Inevitable Jussie Smollett Movie

The Daily Show created a mock trailer this week for the inevitable Lifetime movie this whole Jussie Smollett saga will be made into years from now.

Correspondent Jaboukie Young-White played Smollett as he went through the steps of coming up with the ridiculous scheme in seeking greater relevance. And more money.

The real Smollett was arrested this week and police said in a stunning press conference that he “took advantage of the pain and anger of racism to promote his career.”

You can watch the Daily Show‘s mock trailer above, via Comedy Central.
