Louis CK is challenging anyone leaning toward Donald Trump to take one hour and Google Trump’s name before they do so. CK sent a full email to his email subscribers that unloaded Louis’ feelings about Donald, and in true Louis CK style, the comedian didn’t hold back.
Variety has the full email that Louis sent about Trump to his subscribers, along with the curse words wherein CK used the c-word to lob at Trump. According to The Daily Beast, years before CK sent his scathing email about Donald, Louis spoke about getting on an elevator with Trump. CK said that Donald looked so miserable as Trump rode the elevator at Trump’s Castle in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Louis recalled that although Donald had plenty of money, he wasn’t a joyful man.
“[Trump] just looked miserable. He looked so unhappy. And all that money, I realized he has all these billions of dollars, but he’s f****** miserable because he needs $100 billion to look in the mirror and not want to kill himself.”
CK urged fans of Donald to quit voting for Trump and give up the joke, because Louis said that Donald is Hitler. Louis said that by promoting Trump, America is acting like Germany in the 1930s, when some blindly went along with Nazis as Jewish people were being rounded up and slaughtered.
Louis explained that he’s not necessarily pushing Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders on voters, even though CK likes both of them. Louis did write that Donald isn’t an intelligent conservative who can offer a smart debate opportunity against liberal candidates.
“Trump is not that. He’s an insane bigot. He is dangerous.
“He already said he would expand libel laws to sue anyone who ‘writes a negative hit piece’ about him. He says ‘I would open up the libel laws so we can sue them and win lots of money. Not like now. These guys are totally protected.’ He said that. He has promised to decimate the first amendment. (If you think he’s going to keep the second amendment intact you’re delusional.) And he said that Paul Ryan, speaker of the house will ‘pay’ for criticizing him. So I’m saying this now because if he gets in there we won’t be able to criticize him anymore.”
After explaining why CK was speaking out now, Louis urged voters to take a look at Kasich if they had to go conservative.
“Please pick someone else. Like John Kasich. I mean that guy seems okay. It feels like between him and either democrat we’d have a decent choice. It feels like a healthier choice. We shouldn’t have to vote for someone because they’re not a shocking c*** billionaire liar.”
Louis continued to empathize with the way voters might feel towards politicians.
While Trump is busy having his followers raise their right hands and swear that they will support the frontrunner — or whomever wins the Republication nomination — CK was writing that voting for Trump was akin to committing national suicide, or taking drugs.
While it’s a rush to read about the latest outlandish news about Trump, CK writes that Donald is playing his supporters. Louis urged Trump fans to spend an hour on Google and read everything about Donald — good, bad, and ugly. The ugly side of Trump includes the Trump threats against John McCain, wrote Louis, and the chutzpah of calling McCain a man who isn’t a war hero, despite his years as a POW — a feat that Donald never endured.
Trump is a liar, wrote Louis. CK wrote that he knew those voting for Donald were following their guts, but Louis wrote that he wants them to use their brains as well. CK compared voting for Trump to an act similar to supporting Hitler.
