Louis C.K. would like to clarify his statements about President Trump.
In March of last year, the comedian called Donald Trump an “insane bigot,” and also “Hitler.” This week, he told Stephen Colbert that he has no intention of backing down from the statement — but he would like to make a little amendment.
“I guess he’s not as profound as I thought he was. I thought he was a new kind of evil,” CK said, according to Vanity Fair. “But he’s just a lying sack of s—t. It’s just simple.” True!
C.K. is known for being a comedian, but really he should be a poet. He’d win the Pulitzer! There’s something beautiful about the way he puts words together; later in the interview he calls Trump a “gross crook dirty rotten lying sack of s—t," and it just brings a single, purely formed tear to my eye.
So yeah, Louis C.K. 2020?
