Chris Rock Jokes Trump’s Arrest ‘Is Only Going To Make Him More Popular’

During an awards ceremony on Sunday, comedian Chris Rock joked about the notion that former President Donald Trump will be arrested — calling those who may arrest him “stupid” because it will likely make Trump even more popular.

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, a radical leftist whose campaign was largely funded by billionaire Democrat donor George Soros, is reportedly considering indicting Trump for supposed “hush money” paid to porn star Stormy Daniels in 2016 to cover up an affair that the former president has denied to this day.

Rock appeared on Sunday at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., for an awards ceremony to honor Adam Sandler with the Mark Twain Prize, which is given to “the world’s greatest humorists.”

During his comedy routine in front of a crowd of comedians, actors and politicians — including top Democrats from the Biden administration and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) — Rock mocked a series of politicians, including Trump and the people trying to arrest him.

“Are you stupid?” the 58-year-old comedian joked.

“Are you guys really going to arrest Trump?” Rock asked. “Do you know this is only going to make him more popular?”

“It’s like arresting Tupac. He’s just gonna sell more records,” he added, referencing the late rapper Tupac Shakur, who was shot to death in Las Vegas in 1996.

Rock is probably right, according to recent polling data that shows Trump has already begun surging in the polls in response to news of his potential arrest.

The comedian went on to call the hush money payment a “romantic” gesture designed to prevent former first lady Melania Trump from discovering her husband’s supposed affair.

“We’ve all been cheated on,” Rock added. “Don’t you wish that the person that cheated on you paid off somebody so you wouldn’t find out?”

“That’s romantic!” he insisted.

Of course, the left-wing comedian is no fan of Trump, and he made sure to emphasize that in his comments — while also poking fun at the current president’s advanced age.

“Trump was so bad as a president; he was so bad that Joe Biden had to burst off a monument. Biden was dead for 16 years,” Rock said, mocking 80-year-old President Joe Biden.

Other comedians who appeared at the awards ceremony also discussed the current socio-political climate, which has led to the decline of comedy due to fear of punishment for daring to criticize the woke culture and politicians who support it.

“In these woke times we live in, the one person who would not win the Mark Twain Prize was Mark Twain,” joked David Spade. “He had some iffy material.”

In his acceptance speech, Sandler admitted that the current culture is “more hypersensitive than it’s ever been,” but claimed that “we’re gonna be alright.”
