Donald Trump Jr. sat down with "Fox & Friends" Monday morning to talk politics and what he says are his father's accomplishments – despite promising to stay out of politics and run the family business.


Among the President's eldest son's curiously inane remarks were those on "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett, now charged with filing a false police report. Smollett claimed two men attacked him and shouted "This is MAGA country," referring to the president's campaign slogan.

Trump Jr. has been going after Smollett, tweeting over a dozen attacks on him.

On Monday, Trump Jr. issued a two-for-one slam, wrapping Smollett's possibly false allegations in an attack on Chicago's high rate of gun violence.

"If you wore a MAGA hat in downtown Chicago, you probably wouldn't last too long. About two seconds until you get shot," Trump. Jr. insisted, which is false.
