Jerrod Carmichael, out comedian, on Dave Chappelle’s nonstop attacks on the transgender community as “jokes”:
“Look, I get it. Everybody’s got to create a bogeyman to sell tickets. But it’s not true. Who’s getting canceled for what they’ve said? What does that mean, that people are mad on Twitter? Everybody’s fine. These grown men are fine. I think, a lot of times, people who offer nothing truthful or meaningful about themselves then complain about society at large and create this boogeyman. It’s like, listen, that’s the most urgent thing in your life? God bless you. I’m tired of hearing it. Chappelle, do you know what comes up when you Google your name, bro? That’s the legacy? Your legacy is a bunch of opinions on trans shit? It’s an odd hill to die on. And it’s like, hey, bro. Who the fuck are you? Who do you fuck? What do you like to do? Childish jokes aside, who the fuck are you? It’s just kind of played. But he’s choosing to die on the hill. So, all right, let him.”
Chappelle has drawn controversy for his anti-transgender comments and continues to make anti-trans jokes. During a Netflix is a Joke event Chappelle was tackled onstage by a young man who said he was “triggered” by Chappelle’s routine. After being attacked, Chappelle declared that the assailant was a trans man.
That was a lie. Chappelle has made a career of bashing our trans brothers and sisters and complains about being cancelled and yet he’s made millions with his “humor.”
I’ll stand with Jerrod.
“If I lost one of my children I’d be pretty devastated, especially in a way that is so senseless and seemingly has no purpose. I would just have to say, if I had the opportunity to talk to the people I’d have to say, look, there’s always a plan. I believe God always has a plan. Life is short no matter what it is. And certainly, we’re not going to make sense of, you know, a young child being shot and killed way before their life expectancy.”
Amy Kremer, chair of Women for America First and organizer of Thing 45’s Insurrection, has changed her mind:
“[Thing 45] is disconnected from the base. It’s time for those of us in the movement to get back to basics, back to our first principles. We were here long before [Thing 45] came along, and we’re going to be here long afterward.”
Nice, Amy, but you goose-stepped along with the traitor before during and after January 6, so excuse me if I don’t find you traitor adjacent.
Kellyanne Conway, the Cryptkeeper for Thing 45, smacking down Jared Kushner in her new book:
“There was no subject he considered beyond his expertise. Criminal justice reform. Middle East peace. The southern and northern borders. Veterans and opioids. Big Tech and small business. If Martian attacks had come across the radar, he would have happily added them to his ever-bulging portfolio. He’d have made sure you knew he’d exiled the Martians to Uranus and insisted he did not care who got credit for it. He misread the Constitution in one crucial respect, thinking that all power not given to the federal government was reserved to him.”
Kellyanne sounds a little miffed that Jared had more sway with the bloated traitor than she did.
Kellyanne can, as always, fuck off.
