George Lopez decided to make a barrage of anti-Trump jokes during a juvenile diabetes charity even in Denver. He soon learned the hard way that nobody wanted to hear anymore Trump-bashing. According to Page Six “Trump backer and Liberty Media CEO Greg Maffei donated $250,000 but requested that Lopez cool it with the anti-Trump jokes at the Carousel Ball.”
According to one commenter who was at the event George Lopez was boo’ed, but he kept going. “George was asked nicely to stop making Trump jokes by a man in front row [Maffei] who just donated $250K. George doesn’t, continues. Gets booed,” wrote the commenter.
After the $250,000 donor told him to stop, Lopez mocked him for his ‘white privilege.’ “Thank you for changing my opinion on old white men, but it doesn’t change the way I feel about orange men,” said Lopez.
“Listen, it’s about the kids . . . I apologize for bringing politics to an event. This is America — it still is. So I apologize to your white privilege,” said Lopez.
Lopez made some ‘jokes’ about the border wall. “I guess you can get some Mexicans to do it cheaper and they wouldn’t crush the tunnels underneath,” said Lopez. After the event TV host Chris Parente posted the following on twitter. “Big controversy: host of HUGE charity #CarouselBall, @georgelopez, makes political comments about Trump, drops f-bomb and is escorted out.” For more read here.
