Kevin Hart Is a “Pussy” for Not Attacking Trump in Stand-Up Routine

Kathy Griffin is done apologizing for her 2017 political stunt that basically caused her to be exiled from Hollywood and shunned by many fans. Now, she’s criticizing other comedians for refusing to go after Donald Trump, going as far as to call Kevin Hart a “pussy.”

Griffin is going all in on Trump in her upcoming “Laugh Your Head Off” tour, which will find the humor in her tumultuous year after holding a bloodied decapitated Trump head in a controversial photo shoot. However, she’s particularly disappointed that a black man like Hart won’t blast Trump in his own stand-up. She tells USA Today:

“I do feel like this is such an anxiety-ridden time for everyone that there is a thirst for all kinds of comedy. And look, if you want to not hear about Trump at all, go see Kevin Hart. He doesn’t even mention Trump. I personally think that’s a pussy move because he’s a black man. But I guess he’s selling more tickets than I ever will.”

Hart has not responded to Griffin’s slam. Just to note, political humor has rarely been part of Hart’s routine, as his style consists more of observational comedy, satire, and self-deprecation. One of his most recent tweets was about his height.

As for Griffin, she feels the backlash she received last year was not warranted given how the first year of the Trump administration has panned out. “Every day that passes, more people realize not only was my photo literally harmless, but completely legal,” she said.

She lost several jobs and endorsements, was condemned by friends, was placed on the no-fly list, and was the subject of a federal investigation for conspiracy to assassinate the president.

Griffin is “humbled and grateful” for the career pitfall and her journey back on the road. Her 23-city tour kicks off today in San Francisco.

Dennis Rodman, Wearing MAGA Hat, Cries Over Trump’s Meeting With Kim Jong Un in North Korea (VIDEO)

Though President Donald Trump’s meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is certainly a historic moment on its own, Dennis Rodman somehow managed to steal the spotlight away from the Trump-Kim meeting during his appearance on CNN Monday night (Jun. 11).

The NBA legend and longtime friend of Kim Jong Un, who has paid several visits to North Korea over the years, was on hand in Singapore to support Donny and Kim’s face-to-face meeting, and he turned into a big ole ball of emotions during a bizarre live interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo.

Wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat, sunglasses, a t-shirt promoting a marijuana-related cryptocurrency company called Pot Coin (who sponsored his trip to Singapore), and his trademark face rings, of course, Dennis broke down in tears while discussing all it took to get to this moment.

The crocodile tears began to flow when Rodman recalled America’s reaction to his first visit to North Korea in 2013:

“When I went back home, I got so many death threats. When I came home, I couldn’t even go home. I had to hide out for 30 days. But I kept my head up high, brother. I knew things were going to change.”

He slammed former President Barack Obama for not taking his BFF Kim Jong Un seriously when he was in office.

Rodman said that Kim had told him “certain” things to relay to Obama about potential negotiations between the U.S. and North Korea, but Obama “didn’t even give me the time of day—he just brushed me off, but that didn’t deter me.”

Rodman also offered Trump some advice about how to gain the North Korean leader’s trust:

“President Trump should understand the fact that the reason the Marshal of North Korea [Kim Jong Un] respects Dennis Rodman is the fact that he trusts me, and I gave him something for his birthday—and I thought I couldn’t pull this off—and I said the day before his birthday, I’m gonna give you a present.”

That present Rodman promised Kim Jong Un was to bring a professional basketball team to North Korea “even though I knew I couldn’t do it,” he said, adding that he quickly realized he needed to come through with his promise, otherwise there would be a “problem.”

After helping train North Korean basketball players and arranging to bring former NBA players to the country, Rodman said Kim told him, “Dennis, you know, this is the first time someone ever kept their word to me in this country.”

Rodman said the moment was emotional and he encouraged Trump to show his “heart” to Kim, who Rodman described as a “big kid” who just wants to have “fun.”

Dennis added, “If Trump can pull this off, more power to him.” The basketball star claimed that Trump reached out to him prior to the summit through a secretary to tell him how “very proud” of him he was. “We don’t need a miracle, but we need the doors to be open so we can start fresh,” Rodman said of the historic meeting between Trump and Kim Jong Un.

“I just wanna bring sports to North Korea,” Rodman said. “That’s it, sports. … I’m just so happy to be here, man,” he added, calling Monday, June 11th “the world’s day.”

“Donald Trump should take a lot of credit for this. He went out the box and made this happen,” Rodman said.

President Trump Cancels Meeting With North Korea Leader Kim Jong Un Due to “Open Hostility”

President Donald Trump will not be meeting with Kim Jong Un in June, according to a letter addressed to North Korea’s Supreme Leader from the president. The letter was released by The White House Thursday morning (May 24).

The meeting, which was scheduled for June 12th in Singapore, would have been a historic diplomatic summit between the United States and North Korea, who haven’t been on good terms over the years. In fact, that meeting would have been the first EVER face-to-face meeting between a U.S. and North Korean leader.

However, Trump says that he feels that it would be “inappropriate” to have this “long-planned meeting” due to the “tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement.”

The most “most recent statement” Trump is referring to came from North Korean’s vice minister of foreign affairs, Choe Son Hui, who called Vice President Mike Wednesday a “political dummy” on Wednesday.

“You talk about nuclear capabilities, but ours are so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never have to be used,” President Trump said in his letter.

Pyongyang had threatened to pull out of next month’s summit with the U.S., citing the “unbridled and impudent remarks” of “political dummy” Mike Pence, who said that North Korea might end up “like Libya” if Kim Jong Un “doesn’t make a deal.” Pence’s statement was a clear reference to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, who was beaten and killed after being chased down by rebel soldiers in 2011—eight years following his decision to denuclearize after negotiations with the U.S.

Choe said that North Korea has no interest in meeting the same “tragic fate” as Libya. “As a person involved in the U.S. affairs, I cannot suppress my surprise at such ignorant and stupid remarks gushing out from the mouth of the U.S. vice president,” Choe said, according to a translation from Wall Street Journal reporter Jonathan Cheng.

“In case the U.S. offends against our goodwill and clings to unlawful and outrageous acts, I will put forward a suggestion to our supreme leadership for reconsidering the [Kim-Trump] summit,” Choe added, saying that it was up to the U.S. to decide whether it wanted ot negotiate in a “meeting room or encounter us [in a] unclear-to-nuclear showdown.”

Read Choe’s full statement below:

But it looks like Trump beat North Korea to the punch by canceling the meeting himself. Read his full letter to North Korea below:

We greatly appreciate your time, patience, and effort with respect to our recent negotiations and discussions relative to a summit long sought by both parties, which was scheduled to take place on June 12 in Singapore. We were informed that the meeting was requested by North Korea, but that to us is totally irrelevant. I was very much looking forward to being there with you. Sadly, based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting. Therefore, please let this letter serve to represent that the Singapore summit, for the good of both parties, but to the detriment of the world, will not take place. You talk about nuclear capabilities, but ours are so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never have to be used.

I felt a wonderful dialogue was building up between you and me, and ultimately, it is only that dialogue that matters. Some day, I look very much forward to meeting you. In the meantime, I want to thank you for the release of the hostages who are now home with their families. That was a beautiful gesture and was very much appreciated.

If you change your mind having to do with this most important summit, please do not hesitate to call me or write. The world, and North Korea in particular, has lost a great opportunity for lasting peace and great prosperity and wealth. This missed opportunity is a truly sad moment in history.
