George Lopez used to be a quasi-famous standup comedian and even had his own show simply called “George Lopez.” For a while he was one of the most famous Latino actors in America.
Lopez has been extremely vocal about his disdain for President Trump and consistently takes his criticism wildly too far – sometimes as far as when comedian Kathy Griffin posed with a decapitated head of the commander-in-chief shortly after he defeated Hillary Clinton.
But comedian George Lopez took it to a new level this time when he targeted Trump’s son, Barron, in the most disgusting way.
It should be common sense, whether you belong to either side of the political aisle that the children of politicians are off limits, but unfortunately there are some who grotesquely ignore that rule.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney’s youngest daughter, Mary, was already out as a lesbian even before he accepted to run as George Bush’s running mate in 2000. Mary was attacked consistently.
Recently, Rosie O’Donnell accused President Trump’s son, Barron, of being autistic – describing him as unusually quiet and claiming there’s something wrong with him. For the record, Barron is not autistic and it was an absurd projection for her to make trying to concoct some sort of narrative that there must be something wrong with his father if he was autistic.
There is a long history of this kind of behavior but it’s anecdotal and only a small percentage will stoop that low to antagonize the children of political leaders.
But disgraced comedian George Lopez did just that recently and grossly attacked all of his children including, Ivanka, Eric and Donald Jr.
Lopez took to Instagram on Sunday to share a meme showing all four of Trump’s children (with Ivanka and Melania) wearing sombreros and a caption calling them “Anchor Baby.”
He wrote, “Uh, ICEgov, if your listening you can find these immigrants at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave – Signed Enrique Empanada the third.”
If you’re not familiar with what an “Anchor Baby” is, it is a child born to a noncitizen moth in a country which has a birthright citizenship. A term especially used as it being an advantage for family members seeking to secure citizenship or legal residency.
Ivanka became a citizen in 1988 and Melania in 2006.
This obviously comes after the proposed threat that ICE was about to do a massive nationwide deportation but Trump abruptly canceling it giving the Democrats two more weeks to figure out asylum laws.
But the grossest part is Lopez caught up with TMZ and the videographer asked him about his post saying “do you think it’s fair to Barron in that post?”
Lopez laughs at the question. It was a rather sinister laugh and followed it up with “Why?”
Then the interviewer asked him about pulling back from attacking Iran and Lopez said, “Hopefully this airs before he ends the world.”
In July 2018, George Lopez told a man to record him from behind as they walked to President Trump’s star on Hollywood Boulevard and pretended to pee on it.
Political leaders are used to vitriol but the kids should be left out of it.
