Anti-Trump comedians are stacking up.
These comedians pretend that President Trump is a terrible detriment to the country, but they’re also literally profiting off of making fun of him.
And a decaying Mexican comic is now experiencing a career resurgence because of an anti-police message for Trump.
George Lopez is the type of comic that you’ll hear about and then say, “oh yeah, I forgot about that guy.”
Every so often he reappears like he’s Punxsutawney Phil, says something meaningless, and becomes irrelevant again for the rest of the year.
But the Mexican comic is now telling President Trump how to run the country and had a nefarious message for police officers everywhere.
Actor-comedian George Lopez sent a message to President Donald Trump: instead of deporting Latinos to make America’s streets safer, he should ‘deport the police!’
In a post published on his Instagram Friday, Lopez is seen standing next to a caption that reads, “The Trump administration is deporting Latinos to make the streets safer… You wanna make the streets safer, deport the police.”
The former Lopez Tonight host also said, “This is not an indictment of all Law Enforcement , some still just beat you,” #gacho #georgelopezonhbo#TheWall ( @momorodriguez #gracias.’
Lopez’s Instagram account is now set to private, but an archive of the post can still be found online.
The Instagram caption caused outrage among many of the comedian’s fans.
“This is a very irresponsible comment bro. You have really disappointed me bro, I thought you were better than that,” wrote one commenter, who claimed to be a police officer.
“Not cool @georgelopez. I’m Latina and I’ve been pulled over more than enough times for speeding.
All but one cop were nice and respectful,” wrote another user.
“I realize there are some bad apples in the bunch but your statement puts all cops in the bad bunch category.
Please stick to comedy. You’re not that funny when you bring politics into your posts.”
Another commenter wrote, “Keep calm George…I got two brothers that are police officers ..and we are Mexican/Americans.”
“That comment is f— up, many Latinos who fought hard and became cops #alllivematter puto,” wrote another.
Lopez has repeatedly attacked President Trump and American voters.
Last July, when asked about Trump’s election odds, Lopez told TMZ that ‘there’s enough racists in this country for him to get elected.’
A couple weeks later at a show in Phoenix, Arizona, the comedian led a crowd in a chant of “[screw] that puto.” (Puto is Spanish slang for male whore.)
After the election, Lopez was even less gracious. When asked if he was willing to give President Trump a chance, Lopez said, “I’ll give him a chance to suck my [butt].”
The unfunny comedian was met with a lot of backlash because of his asinine offensive comment.

And Blue Lives Matter wasn’t happy about Lopez’s comments either.

And Lopez also has a new comedy special coming to HBO in August, taped in Washington, D.C., that is obviously going to attack Trump.

Don’t worry — Lopez is like Groundhog’s Day in a lot of ways. When he shows up one day, before you think, “Oh, is it that time of year again?” he’s already gone.
