Comedian Chris Rock, who got slapped across the face for cracking jokes the last time he hosted a major event, reportedly called Democrats stupid while hosting an event at the Kennedy Center honoring Adam Sandler with the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.
“Are you guys really going to arrest Trump?” Rock said, according to The Daily Mail. “Do you know this is only going to make him more popular? It’s like arresting Tupac. He’s just gonna sell more records. Are you stupid?”
The comedian also joked that the allegations Trump paying off porn star Stormy Daniels hush money was “romantic” because it was an effort to hide unsavory details from Trump’s third wife, Melania.
“That’s romantic,” The Daily Mail suggests Rock said while hosting. “We’ve all been cheated on. Don’t you wish that the person that cheated on you paid off somebody so you wouldn’t find out?”
Rock’s joke about Stormy Daniels and Trump’s possible arrest this week stems from alleged payments made to the porn star in 2016. While Trump paying a porn star for gratification is not a new phenomenon in human history, the Soros-funded District Attorney and his office in New York are suggesting the payments were illegally made. The Daily Mail wrote:
Rock was referring to the fact Trump is set to face criminal charges for $130,000 in payments his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, sent to porn star Stormy Daniels toward the end of his 2016 campaign. Prosecutors say the payment violated campaign finance laws, and was made to silence Daniels about an affair she had with the mogul.
Rock is a real comedian, so he did not limit his jokes to commentary on Trump. He also took some funny shots at Nancy Pelosi, who was in attendance at the Kennedy Center, and Joe Biden, who was not.
‘Trump was so bad as a president, he was so bad that Joe Biden had to burst off a monument. Biden was dead for 16 years,’ he hilariously said.
He added that Nancy’s husband, Paul, who was also in attendance, got the age reference. ‘Paul Pelosi only got it. He knows how I felt,’ Rock said.
Rock reminds people that it’s possible to be a strong joke teller in the 21st century, despite the looming presence of the woke cancel-culture brigade. Basically, you just have to not care what people think or say.
Adam Sandler, who was being presented with the award Sunday, told The Daily Mail that comedy was definitely harder than it’s been in the past, but that the profession would work through it.
“Comedians are trying to make you laugh, and that’s that’s what the goal is,” Sandler remarked on the red carpet ahead of the event. “Yeah, it’s it’s more hypersensitive than it’s ever been but we’re gonna be alright.”
And debased talk show host Drew Barrymore, who went viral for embarrassing herself during a recent interview on her show, observed much the same thing. Never mind that her woke progressive worldview is the reason we live in a cancel culture world.
“Comedy in general has become a taboo subject and that in itself scares me. But I just want to appreciate people who are brave enough to make us laugh,” Barrymore said. The actress-turned-talk-show-host starred with Sandler in several films in the 1990s and 2000s.
“Everything, you know, in a moment can be something that creates a sentiment of vitriol or distaste or dislike. I don’t even think gotcha has a chance to be a gotcha. It’s like too fast instant. People are turning on each other,” she added.
