Jim Gaffigan used to be a self deprecating, fun comedian. I even went to one of his events at the Orpheum.
He was truly funny.
Nothing funny about him now. He is full on Trump hating.
While the President was outlining his plans for America Thursday night, Gaffigan was busy tweeting hate.
Then it started to ramp up:
“Look Trumpers I get it. As a kid I was a cubs fan and I know you stick by your team no matter what but he’s a traitor and a con man who doesn’t care about you. Deep down you know it. I’m sure you enjoy pissing people off but you know Trump is a liar and a criminal.”
“to those of you who think Im destroying my career wake up. if trump gets elected, the economy will never come back.”
“F**k Lou Holtz. Biden is Catholic in name only? Compared to who? How many abortions did trump pay for? How many women has he raped? How many times did pull the s**t he did in Ukraine. Wake up. He’s a crook and a con man.”
“Please dont buy that socialist crap either. Obviously Obama wasn’t a socialist. This is all lies to scare you and you know it. Biden is not radical. Are you serious?”
“Remember everything Trump accuses the Democrats of he’s guilt of. Dont let the socialist name calling distract you from the fact he is a fascist who has no belief in law.”
“I dont give a f**k if anyone thinks this is virtue signaling or whatever. We need to wake up. We need to call trump the con man and thief that he is.”
“Trump derangement syndrome is part of the con. Wake up. you know Fox News is biased and full of loons. it’s how they gaslight and silence criticism. Do you think any of those congressional republicans really believe in Trump or do they fear him dont want to end up like Flake.”
Just before he hung it up for the night, the comedian apparently couldn’t help adding this riposte to the Federalist writer Chad Felix Greene:
“Hey f**k you Chad. In case you didn’t notice 180,000 people have died and the country is being run by a con man who’s trying to convince half the country that the suburbs are about to be set on fire (a lie)”
“Heading to bed but remember
– If you want to sound crazy please tell me about THE DEEP STATE.
– To sound stupid please be against CANCEL CULTURE but then accuse anyone with an opinion of Virtue signaling.
– Trump Derangement Syndrome is meant to distract from the con of Don”
Now, it’s possible Gaffigan can go back to telling jokes about Hot Pockets. But it seems in doubt, at this moment, that he can pull it together.
Gaffigan also considers himself a faithful Catholic. Dr. Taylor Marshall, well known Catholic speaker, disagreed. He says Gaffigan had his children participate in the gay pride parade, something not in Church teaching. Plus, Biden is not allowed communion. Hardly a Catholic to look up to.
Marshall added, “Jim Gaffigan, is this a joke? Because you stopped being funny after your hot-pocket bit.”
Exactly. Hot Pockets were the highlight of Gaffigan’s career. Quite a legacy.
