Patton Oswalt recently sat down with Conan O’Brien, and of course the crusty mango currently occupying the Oval Office came up in conversation.
The actor, writer, and stand-up comedian hasn’t been shy in speaking out against Trump in the past, and this time was no different.
Oswalt began by pointing out that Trump getting elected really pointed out that, despite what many people thought after former President Barack Obama’s two terms, America may not be quite as evolved as many of us thought.
‘He really shoved into our faces how not progressive and evolved America is. Eight years of a black president, and our choices were this insanely qualified woman and a racist scrotum dipped in Cheeto dust. And the country said, ‘well, let’s see what the scrotum has to say.’
Oswalt has never been shy in regards to sharing his opinions about Trump. Following the election, Oswalt took to Facebook to share his thoughts.
‘I’ve got conservative friends actually DEFENDING Russia on this. I’ve got progressive friends gloating that we’ve finally had done to us what we’ve done to other countries. That Hillary somehow deserves this. That WE somehow deserve this. That infuriating cliche about, “It’s actually GOOD if Trump destroys everything it’ll start a revolution BLAH BLAH BLAH FUCKING BLAH…” and in the middle of it all is Trump — bloated, grinning, oblivious, wearing his cheap baseball cap and ruining people’s lives with his Twitter. While all around him — smarter, better, exhausted people scramble around, trying to sweep up a china shop he keeps stumbling through, laughing the whole time at these stupid nerds picking up the broken pieces on the ground. Losers. Weak.’
He went on to call call the then president-elect a “grope-y, racist uncle,” writing:
‘[Trump] spreads MEDIOCRITY. And anyone who gets near him gets dragged into the same sloppy, tossed-off, first-draft shitscape he lives in. Except this time, it’s the entire country who got too close to him. We’re about to become, as a nation, as garish and pathetic as one of his hotel suites. Balsa wood under gold spray paint. A chandelier over a toilet. Knock-off Haviland and Parlon china on which to serve a Big Mac. And the people MAKING the Big Macs getting screwed, stripped and exploited while the predators high-five on their private jets.’
‘In nine days the electors make their choice. Let’s hope they choose to save us from our grope-y, racist uncle who just won $50,000 playing scratch-offs.’
