Libertarian comedian Adam Carolla put forth his take on Donald Trump's election victory recently on an episode of The Adam & Dr. Drew Show podcast, and as you can imagine -- if you're familiar with Carolla's blue-collar, sense of humor -- he pulled no punches eviscerating
As reported at the must-read, right-leaning pop culture website Hollywood In Toto, Carolla began by mocking sensitive liberals who wondered aloud what to tell their children about a world in which someone as politically incorrect as Trump could inhabit the White House.
First, he picked on Oscar-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, a raging coastal elitist who actually wrote an “open letter” to his daughter about coming to terms with the horrors of a Trump presidency.
“'What do I tell my child?'… Who cares?” Carolla snarled. “It’s such a colossal douche move. It’s unbelievable. If mom’s got a tumor, that’s a conversation [you have with your kids]. Politics? That’s not a conversation. Your job is to provide stability, look after your children … Whatever you think this administration will do to you, make it your business to make your family administration-proof.” Exactly.
Carolla then went after Sorkin for suggesting that Trump rode to victory on a tide of racism.
“We elected a black president eight years ago and then re-elected him four years later. Now, we ended up getting a guy with red hair, and the whole country’s been thrown into one big Klan rally. You f***ers have that kind of hubris that you’re gonna announce with this big, broad sweeping stroke that this is a racist nation?
“We have a black president finishing hi second term elected by a majority of white citizens. All these CNN pundits sitting around with this, 'this is backlash'… Backlash for the second term? He would make it a third. Obama would win a third term. We’ve all joined the Klan after eight years of a black president? I find that a little insulting.
“It must be black or it must be a woman every single time, or it must be racist underpinnings? Or maybe we just don’t like the job that was being done globally by our government over the last eight years-plus. Maybe it’s getting a little out of hand, did you ever think of that? Or is it just that we’re all racist? People want a change.”
Carolla dismissed racist voters for Trump as a “very, very small fraction” of his supporters. “Let’s not spin this that the Klan got together and voted in their guy,” he said.
Dr. Drew Pinsky chimed in, noting that liberals and the media (but I repeat myself) fear-mongered that “if Trump’s people lost, they’ll be rioting in the streets.” Of course, this was only psychological projection, as “they’re really talking about themselves. That’s so interesting to me.”
“It’s predictable,” said Carolla, who then went after the liberal obsession with race.
“The group that is constantly telling everybody to be colorblind can’t walk 10 feet without talking about race. They can’t do anything without rolling out some race component. You’d like to live in a world that’s color bind, and we focused on the content of the character. You can’t move five feet without [liberals] bringing it up.”
Then Carolla got around to the message behind Trump's election win.
“There’s a group of people who like Donald Trump, and there’s a group of people who like the message. I like the message, which is — CNN and New York Times, you don’t get to dictate outcomes.
“We got the Internet. New York Times, no one gives a sh*t about you. You ain’t Hearst, William Randolph Hearst. You can’t affect things anymore,” Carolla concluded.
