Chris Rock On Obama: When Your Dad Says Something, You Listen’

Chris Rock, in support of gun control efforts, has stated that we should listen to President Obama because “when your dad says something, you listen.” Rock appeared and spoke today during a press conference in support of Washington, D.C., Mayors Against Illegal Guns and the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence.

The two organizations held the conference in support of President Obama’s effort to reduce gun violence. They are requesting that Congress cooperate with the president to enact a ban on assault weapons and require more strict background checks on those purchasing guns.

As reported by The Blaze, Chris Rock used some interesting terminology during his speech:

“The President of the United States is, you know, our boss. But he is also, you know, the president and the first lady are kinda like the Mom and Dad of the country. And when your Dad says something, you listen. And when you don’t, it will usually bite you in the a** later on. So, I’m here to support the president.”

Rock’s speech was brief but clearly pointed out his opinion on the subject of gun control. He has made statements in the past in support of charging more for bullets and only allowing those who have mortgages to purchase guns. As reported by Politico, Rock made the following statement to the Television Critics Association:

“The gun lobby also says people need to be able to protect their property … but every mass shooting is done by guys who live with their mother. So I believe you should need to have a mortgage to buy a gun. A mortgage is a real background check.”

Although most of the statements were made in jest, his appearance at today’s press conference indicates that he is in support of the gun control effort and President Obama. One thing is certain, in Chris Rock’s opinion, when President Obama or your dad says something, you should listen.

    the president is your boss? the president is your daddy? get thee to a therapist, mr. Rock, because you are dangerously disturbed. the President is supposed to be a public servant (the PEOPLE are HIS boss, not the other way around) if Chris Rock wants to live in dictatorship, he has more than enough money to surrender to his new home, but this kind of belief is dangerously disgusting and sycophantic. Chris Rock, your daddy murders children from 20000 ft up. He spies on you, he declares that he can arrest you and hold you indefinitely without even charging you. He claims he hand selects targets, which have actually included American citizens and at least one American born child, to be area-affect drone struck at weddings, funerals, or any time there's a crowd gathered. If a child dies from an Obamadrone, "technically, he could technically carry a gun, therefore he was an enemy combatant, kill justified, 14 or not" What do you expect when the dictastor in chief declares himself above and beyond the oversight of the duly elected congress? Enough of the sycophantical worship of this MAN. Not only is he just a man, but he's very, VERY incompetent as just a man, horrendously dangerous as "president" Obama is not a god, he is not even a decent human, STOP WORSHIPPING HIM!

    THE BOSS? The office of president is the highest elected office in our country, key word elected. Which means he is chosen by the people and given a job to do . This means that he is not the boss, we the people are his boss he is a. PUBLIC SERVANT, Chris Rock, I love youryou comedy. Stick to whatyou you know.
