Louis CK: Political Celebrities Are ‘Obnoxious’

So how did the star of FX’s “Louie” follow up on said detonation? By doing exactly what he just mocked.

Vulture.com unleashed a no holds barred interview with CK, one of the culture’s best stand-up comics. The comedian inspired more than a few news stories recently by writing an open letter to Republicans.

Please stop it with voting for Trump. It was funny for a little while. But the guy is Hitler. And by that I mean that we are being Germany in the 30s. Do you think they saw the shit coming? Hitler was just some hilarious and refreshing dude with a weird comb over who would say anything at all.

Long story short: Don’t vote for Donald Trump.

The open letter fueled an awkward exchange between the interviewer and CK about how he inserted himself into the 2016 presidential election. That led to the following CK admission about political celebrities.

“…celebrities saying things politically is obnoxious, because you’ve got a bullhorn that was given to you for one reason and you used that bullhorn for something else. But also I think when there’s somebody as terrible as Trump running, you’re a little bit of a coward by keeping it to yourself if you’re really concerned about it.”

Of course, the reporter’s follow-up question dove deeper into politics. So CK naturally begged off, hoping to play by his own rules, right?

No.

Instead, he doubled down on the discredited canard that Hillary Clinton is the most experienced, most capable leader for our times. He also trots out the gender card to protect her.

“There is a fear of Hillary, you know? I think some of it has to do with Hillary being such a strong candidate and being a woman. The response to her is very male.”

This just sentences after admitting, “Politically I’m not an expert.”

  1. These people don’t understand that this is a career killer because at best liberals make up only 20% of population.

  2. Good GRIEF, CK–so which is it?! I’m sure all the celebrities you just called out as “obnoxious” thought it was SO important that they speak out about This One Thing. Maybe you should apply your own standards to YOURSELF, maybe? Some comedian YOU are. George Carlin would be disgusted.
