We’ve reported it already this morning, but the number of people who have compared President Trump to a creature of the Ape kingdom is absolutely astounding. Wanda Sykes, who was the first to call out Roseanne Barr for her “racist” tweet about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, was captured on video comparing the President to an orangutan.
The point here is that while Roseanne’s tweet was off-color and could be taken as racist, the liberal double standard in Hollywood is incredible. Nothing happened to these Hollywood elitists when they labeled the President an ape or any other bad name. They still have careers.
It raises questions about the speed at which ABC cut ties with Roseanne and her show. Should they have cut ties with her? Sure. But it almost seems as if they were waiting for the moment to do so, as her conservative-leaning show was disrupting everything they thought about their viewing audience.
Take Bill Maher for example — he’s another one who aped on Trump on his show and his career wasn’t ended. This is a guy who even said the “N word” and ended up just fine…
He’s not monkeying around. Bill Maher is doubling down on one of the “new rules” he introduced during his HBO program “Real Time” last year in which he declared that Donald Trump is the spawn of a human and an orangutan. The comedian says he is now prepared to write a check for $5 million to the charity of Trump’s choice, if the billionaire real estate mogul can prove he’s not an ape.
“Look, I’m not looking for a feud with Donald Trump and I certainly only wish the best for the syphilitic monkey who does his Twitter feed,” Maher joked on “The Tonight Show” on Monday before offering to donate money to any charity Trump chose, be it the “Hair Club for Men, the Institute for Incorrigible Douchebaggery, whatever charity.”
Although a few months late in the game, Maher was obviously making fun of Trump’s ridiculous million-dollar offer to President Obama right before the election.
