'Liberal Redneck' Compares Trump and Kim Jong-un to Drunk Guys Discussing Brain Surgery


"Liberal Redneck" comedian Trae Crowder doesn’t anticipate President Donald Trump being able to work out the nuclear problems with North Korea. During a discussion with Bill Maher Friday, he admitted Trump has made strides in getting some potential negotiation; the difference, he explained, is that Trump is no Barack Obama.

“Still, I’m not going to sit here and say I have a lot of inspired confidence of this working out,” he said. “Watching these two guys debate on what to do about the nuclear situation in North Korea is like watching two hammered drunk bricklayers talk about what to do with a brain tumor.”

Republican strategist Ana Navarro can’t imagine it working out.

“What are they going to do? Put their buttons on the table and see who’s got the bigger button?” she wondered.

Maher explained that the only thing he can think is that the two men will have a “d*ck measuring contest” and then move on to actual negotiations.

“He doesn’t understand math or spelling or science, but he does understand schmoozing,” Maher said.

Maher referenced the famous photo depicting the Korean Peninsula, with South Korea alive with electric lights and North Korea completely “in the dark.” He noted that Kim Jong-un knows he’s in the dark and “he’s thinking the lights look pretty good.”

“Well, I can tell you right now Puerto Rico thinks the same thing,” Navarro quipped.
