What this Leftist Comedian Said About Donald Trump Should Get Him Fired [VIDEO]

Comedians, by virtue of what they do, very often say things that are politically incorrect, even at times vulgar. Heck, the speeches by GOP frontrunner and bombastic billionaire Donald Trump could very often be described as filled with the same.

But a line must be drawn somewhere, and that line should be drawn at what Larry Wilmore, host of The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, said and did on his show on Comedy Central Monday night.

According to Deadline.com, Wilmore not only fantasized about murdering Donald Trump, he wanted to do so with what he said was “the pillow used to kill Justice Scalia.”

“Sorry everyone. I don’t want to give him any more oxygen. That’s not a euphemism, by the way. I mean it literally. Somebody get me the pillow they used to kill [Supreme Court Justice Antonin] Scalia and I’ll do it — I’ll do it!” he said, then demonstrated. “I could get in trouble for that, actually!” 

Is this supposed to qualify as humor?

It’s one thing to disagree, even vehemently, with someone’s political positions, but to express on national television that you want to literally kill someone as part of a joke is disgusting. In fact, not only did he verbalize his fantasy, he acted it out with a fake pillow including demonstrating the pressure one would have to put on the struggling person being suffocated.

Could you imagine if Dennis Miller had said such a thing about any leftist? There would be outrage from the Democrat Media Complex and a demand that he be fired from any gig that he has.

But Larry Wilmore fantasizes about murdering Donald Trump, the Republican presidential frontrunner and…crickets.
