Chris Rock Says Lawmakers Are “Stupid” For Wanting To Arrest Former President Donald Trump

Comedian Chris Rock is once again making headlines after calling lawmakers “stupid” for wanting arrest former United States President Trump. While honoring Adam Sandler at the Mark Twain Prize late Sunday, the 58-year-old “Madagascar” voice actor directly addressed lawmakers in the audience about Trump’s expected arrest, New York Post reported.

Despite the insurrection inciter possibly facing charges of fraud, unauthorized retention of national security documents, mishandling official documents, obstruction, contempt of court, conspiracy to make a false statement, election code violations, racketeering, insurrection, and somehow even more, Rock believes that Trump should not be facing jail time.

“Are you guys really going to arrest Trump?” Rock asked the crowd that included several officials from the Biden administration. “Do you know this is only going to make him more popular. It’s like arresting Tupac- he’s just gonna sell more records. Are you stupid?”

He then began making jokes about Trump’s alleged affair with porn star Stormy Daniels.

“He f***ed a porn star and paid off someone so his wife couldn’t find out. That’s romantic.” He then said, “We’ve all been cheated on. Don’t you wish that the person that cheated on you paid off somebody so you wouldn’t find out?”

Towards the end of his set, Rock mentioned the infamous slap from award-winning actor and rapper Will Smith, bizarrely comparing it to the attack on Nancy Pelosi’s husband. “Paul Pelosi, the only guy who knows how I felt,” he commented about the 82-year-old. In October of last year, Paul Pelosi was viciously pummeled with a hammer during a home invasion. “Just me and you, Paul,” he laughed.
