Mexican Comedian Louis C.K. Once Compared Trump To Hitler. Now He’s Got A Whole New Comparison

Louis C.K. appeared on “The Late Show” with Stephen Colbert recently to promote his upcoming special, “Louis C.K. 2017.” However, the conversation quickly turned political when Colbert asked C.K. about an email he sent to his fans in 2016. In the email, C.K. compared Donald Trump to Hitler and called him “an insane bigot.”

Louis C.K. later said he regretted calling Trump “Hitler.”

“Why do you regret it,” Colbert asked, adding, “You’ve said worse things and not taken them back.” C.K. then clarified, saying that he didn’t “take it back” but that he regretted saying it, explaining, “there’s a difference.” When Colbert asked for clarification, C.K. replied, “I regret saying it. It doesn’t mean it’s not true.”

Especially after last year, when the Daily News jumped on the email story with a giant first-page image of Trump and C.K.

The newspaper reported the entirety of C.K.’s letter where he made statements like:

“Trump is a messed up guy with a hole in his heart that he tries to fill with money and attention. He can never ever have enough of either and he’ll never stop trying. He’s sick. Which makes him really really interesting. And he pulls you towards him which somehow feels good or fascinatingly bad. He’s not a monster. He’s a sad man.”

C.K. explained the horror he felt when he saw that Daily News cover.

He explained that he doesn’t see himself as a political comedian, and even in the email he sent out, C.K. refers to himself as an “idiot” and a “f–king celebrity with an opinion.” He then told Colbert that though he felt that way at the time, he no longer sees President Trump as anything close to Hitler. C.K. said, “he’s not as profound as I thought he was.”

When Colbert asked what C.K. thought of President Trump these days, C.K. said, “he’s just a lying sack of shit.”

The audience, which tends to share Colbert’s sense of humor, exploded. C.K. then went on to explain the differences in the kind of people who lie. C.K. said that some people lie “once in while,” and some people lie cause it’s a “problem – they can’t help it.” And finally, C.K. said, “then you have lying sacks of shit.”

C.K. elaborated saying, “[Trump’s] just a gross-crook-dirty-rotten-lying-sack-of-shit.” Audience applause.

Colbert then pointed out…

The kid seemed to be loving the interview. C.K. was keeping the mood light, despite talking about the current president.

Of course, C.K. was unfazed.

C.K. explained that the only people Trump actually lied to were those who bought what Trump was selling. “He did lie to me. Everybody else was like, yeah, that’s not true. But that guy…bought it.”

Rihanna Hilariously Took A Jab At Trump While Taking Out The Trash On Inauguration Day— ‘I’m just here to help’

Rihanna Hilariously Took A Jab At Trump While Taking Out The Trash On Inauguration Day— ‘I’m just here to help’

Rihanna just proved that she’s capable of just about anything. Last week, the class act proved that she can class up even the trashiest of things. While on a walk to the curb with bags of trash the singer rocked diamonds and a pair of satin pink peep-toe heels and gloves in a pointed jab at former President Trump. 

She might be a star but Rihanna isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty when it comes to taking out the trash on behalf of President Joe Biden.

Last Wednesday, the singer and fashion designer celebrated Biden’s inauguration and Trump’s exit with a silly post on her Instagram page. Dressed in stilettos, the “Love On The Brain” singer carried two bags of garbage out to the curb with a caption that read “I’m just here to help #WeDidItJoe.”

The comment was a clear nod to Vice President Kamala Harris and President Biden’s historic win and their ultimate swearing-in last week.

Dressed in a vintage tee-shirt reading ‘End Racism By Any Means Necessary’ Rihanna threw some shade and the trash away. 

Continuing to throw shade in the caption, Rihanna added: ‘I’m just here to help.’ The singer has proven herself to be an ultimate fan of the Biden-Harris ticket. Last year when they won the election she tweeted about their win writing “The faces of history makers, boundary breakers, and WINNERS!!CONGRATULATIONS to you both, and mostly to the American people!! So much work to do, so much hurt to undo! Let’s GO! I’m so proud of you America!”

Fortunately, it looks like Rihanna is showing no signs of slowing down her celebrations this year.

On Sunday, the Savage x Fenty owner shared a video of herself dancing in a hotel room while sporting some of her own line’s lingerie.

After doing some twerks and showing off a Savage x Fenty dotted mesh skirt, and a set of matching gloves, RiRi gave fans a fun Valentine’s Day champagne toast.

“Cupid could NEVA!” she captioned her post. “#ValentinesDayCountdown.”

Trump Labels Cuba A State Sponsor Of Terrorism As His Own Supporters Face Similar Allegations

Trump Labels Cuba A State Sponsor Of Terrorism As His Own Supporters Face Similar Allegations

In a move that is sure to complicate things for the incoming Biden administration, Trump has moved to put Cuba back on the list of nations that allegedly sponsor terrorism.

Obama had taken Cuba off of that list in 2015 and with four years to Cuba back on the list, many agree that Trump has simply put Cuba back on the list to make life difficult for President Biden.

The Trump administration has put Cuba back on the list of countries that “sponsor terrorism.”

With just days left in office, Trump has moved to label Cuba as a “state sponsor of terrorism” in a last-minute move that is sure to complicate things for the incoming Biden administration.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo justified the controversial move which reverses Barack Obama’s 2015 decision to remove Cuba from the list after more than three decades – by accusing Havana of “repeatedly providing support for acts of international terrorism in granting safe harbour to terrorists”.

Pompeo also alleged Cuba was engaging “in a range of malign behavior across the region”, highlighting its support for Venezuela’s authoritarian leader Nicolás Maduro who Trump has unsuccessfully tried to overthrow.

The controversial step places Cuba alongside Iran, North Korea and Syria as state sponsors of terror.

However, most officials agree that Trump’s claims about Cuba are bogus.

Many international observers – including U.S. allies – aren’t impressed by the administration’s claims that Cuba is sponsoring terrorism.

In an interview with The Guardian, Christopher Sabatini, a senior fellow for Latin America at Chatham House, said “These are trumped up charges. Terrorism as an international definition is committing acts of violence against unarmed civilians intended to frighten the population. Cuba doesn’t do that. Yes, it represses its own people – but so does Saudi Arabia.”

Groups that favor greater U.S. engagement with Cuba criticized the announcement.

“There is no compelling, factual basis to merit the designation,” according to Ric Herrero, executive director of the Cuba Study Group, a Washington DC-based organization that supports engagement with the island. “Instead it appears to be another shameless, last-ditch effort to hamstring the foreign policy of the incoming Biden administration and set the stage for the next election in Florida, all at the expense of the Cuban people and relations between our countries.”

Many observers agree that Trump’s move is simply a gift to party hardliners in Florida, and likely a deliberate attempt to make life difficult for the incoming Biden administration who may wish to end deténte with Cuba.

Of course, Cuban officials reacted angrily to the announcement.

After the announcement, Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez tweeted: “We condemn the US announced hypocritical and cynical designation of #Cuba as a State sponsoring terrorism. The US political opportunism is recognized by those who are honestly concerned about the scourge of terrorism and its victims.”

Reversing Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s action would require the Biden administration to certify to Congress that there has been a fundamental change in leadership in Cuba and that the government is not supporting acts of international terrorism, has not for the previous six months and will not do so in the future.
