Chris Rock warned on Sunday night that arresting Donald Trump would make him ‘more popular’ and slammed the crowd of Washington D.C. insiders watching him, asking them ‘are you stupid’ for making such a move.
The comedian also mockingly defended the former president, saying it was ‘romantic’ he paid off porn star Stormy Daniels so Melania Trump wouldn’t find out he cheated on her.
And he got in a hit at Joe Biden, saying the 80-year-old came back from the dead to be president.
Rock, speaking at the Mark Twain Prize at the Kennedy Center, where Adam Sandler was being honored for the prize in American humor, focused his fire on Trump instead of his friend being honored.
‘Are you guys really going to arrest Trump?,’ he asked the crowd, which included lawmakers like Nancy Pelosi and several officials who serve in the Biden administration.
‘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?,’ Rock continued as the crowd roared with laughter.
