Renowned comedian Bill Burr took to the stage on Jimmy Kimmel’s show and delivered what can be described as a masterclass in common sense. During the segment, Burr did not hold back in expressing his views on a variety of topics, including the absurdities of political correctness and the tunnel vision of “idiot liberals.”
As Burr and Kimmel exchanged quips, the comedian notably called out the left’s handling of former President Trump. “You want to see a great case thing on like narcissism. Liberals are so f***ing stupid the way that they handle Trump.”
“You should shut up!” Burr exclaimed while critiquing the liberal strategy of constantly giving Trump media attention, inadvertently empowering him. “You idiot liberals wrote against him when you indicted him…Now he’s a martyr and now he’s coming back.”
Burr, however, did express his desire for younger leadership, saying, “I want somebody in their 40s, somebody that’s going to have to live with their decisions.” As the interview concluded, Burr humorously addressed a potential visit from the Secret Service, a nod to his controversial statements.
“This year you’re not gonna get a visit from Santa, but you are gonna get a visit from the Secret Service,” Kimmel joked.
As Burr’s unfiltered critique of the liberal media’s handling of Donald Trump resonates, it’s clear that the former President continues to be a significant figure in American politics and the media.
Burr’s assertion that liberal strategies have inadvertently turned Trump into a ‘martyr’ aligns well with the ongoing attention Trump garners. Speaking of which, earlier on Thursday, Trump announced a favorable decision from the New York State appellate commission, a topic that Burr indirectly touched upon during his candid discussion with Kimmel.
“The Power Division of New York State just gave us a very good ruling. We appreciate it. I think the country appreciates it,” Trump remarked. However, details of the commission’s decisions have not been made public yet.
Trump also alluded to the broader implications of the case, suggesting that the legal action against him was reflective of a “Marxist type of reform,” posing a threat to businesses in New York. He warned, “No business will move back into New York. No business will frankly stay in New York.”
Despite this victory, Trump continues to face numerous legal challenges. The former president is entangled in a civil trial in New York concerning allegations of business fraud. He is accused of providing false information to banks and insurance companies by overvaluing assets such as his Trump Tower penthouse and Mar-a-Lago club.
New York Attorney General Letitia James is pursuing penalties exceeding $300 million and is seeking to prevent Trump and other involved parties from conducting business in New York. Additionally, the trial is considering a potential five-year ban on Trump acquiring real estate within the state.
Trump, steadfast in his denial of any misconduct, has been outspoken in his criticism of the trial, labeling it a “witch hunt” and deeming it “corrupt.” He has maintained that the financial statements under scrutiny actually underrepresent his wealth and asserts that it was the responsibility of the lenders to perform their own assessments.
