Our favorite comedians took no mercy with the Donald Trump jokes this week.
George Lopez, along with comedians Seth Meyers, John Oliver and others, came together Wednesday night for an event hosted by the Natural Resources Defense Council, and they came heavy with jokes about the new president-elect.
Lopez, who is Mexican-American, used Trump’s harsh immigration policy as material for his routine.
“I can’t stay long,” he said. “I’d LIKE to, but I don’t think I have anything to say about it.”
As he was talking, he was in the process of bringing out a sheet of paper.
“This isn’t my notes,” he said. “It’s my birth certificate.”
Late Night host Meyers commented that maybe Trump might not be that bad, considering he’s underestimated him in every other sense.
“I’ve been wrong about him every step of the way,” Meyers said. “Wrong that Trump wouldn’t run, wrong that he wouldn’t get the GOP nomination, wrong that he wouldn’t win … The good news is, based on my pattern of getting it all wrong, he’s going to be a great (darn) president!”
Hasan Minhaj, senior correspondent for Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, took this chance to serve up tons of realness with his routine. American-born to Muslim parents from India, he spoke on the prejudice he faced post-9/11.
“For the past 15 years I’ve been blamed for 9/11,” he said. “White Americans are now responsible for 11/9.”
