While speaking at the Kennedy Center this weekend, actor and celebrity Chris Rock dumped on Democrats and their plan to possibly indict Trump this coming week. Rock explained that any unlawful arrest would only make Trump’s case stronger and garner more support for his 2024 presidential campaign.
Rock asked the crowd, “Are you guys really going to arrest Trump?” The funny thing is, those in attendance included none other than Nancy Pelosi according to the DailyMail.
Rock continued to jab at the Dems in audience, “Do you know this is only going to make him more popular. It’s like arresting Tupac. He’s just gonna sell more records. Are you stupid?” The crowd erupted in laughter. Rock has been known for not holding back with his comical genius.
NBC News reported last week that law enforcement agencies were conducting preliminary security assessments, as well as discussing potential security plans around the Manhattan Criminal Court in case Trump is charged in connection with an alleged hush money payment to Stormy Daniels.
“We’ve all been cheated on. Don’t you wish that the person that cheated on you paid off somebody so you wouldn’t find out?,” Rock joked.
Rock isn’t the only well-known celebrity to back Trump against the Left’s attacks. This weekend, Elon Musk tweeted about the possible indictment saying, “If this happens, Trump will be re-elected in a landslide victory.”

Trump has also defended himself against the indictment, which many are exposing as more of a political ploy than anything else. On Truth Social, Trump noted, “Just Out: District Attorney Alvin Bragg received in EXCESS OF ONE MILLION DOLLARS from Radical Left Enemy of ‘TRUMP,’ George Soros.”
“Bragg is also very close to the Clinton Campaign. Republicans and Conservatives are more UNITED than they have been in many years,” Trump continued. “Even Democrats don’t like what’s going on with the Manhattan D.A. This is a continuation of the greatest Witch Hunt of all time!”
In 2016, just before the US presidential election, it was revealed that Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, had paid $130,000 to adult film actress Stormy Daniels as part of a nondisclosure agreement (NDA). The NDA was related to an alleged encounter between Trump and Daniels that took place in 2006, when Trump was married to his current wife, Melania.
In 2018, Daniels filed a lawsuit seeking to be released from the NDA, arguing that it was invalid because Trump had not signed it. In response, Trump’s legal team argued that he was not a party to the agreement and that Daniels was already free to talk about the alleged affair. However, Trump’s lawyers also filed a motion seeking $20 million in damages from Daniels for violating the NDA.
The investigation into the alleged hush money payment continued, and in July 2019, federal prosecutors in New York announced that they had closed the investigation without bringing any charges against Trump or anyone else involved in the matter. However, the case remained in the news and it was speculated that Trump could potentially face charges if he was no longer president.
