This Comedian Should be Fired for APPALLING Comments About Donald Trump

Comedy Central’s Larry Wilmore thought recently fantasized about killing Donald Trump with former Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s pillow.

Deadline Hollywood reported that “The Nightly Show” host said of Trump:

“Sorry everyone. I don’t want to give him any more oxygen. That’s not a euphemism, by the way. I mean it literally. Somebody get me the pillow they used to kill [Supreme Court Justice Antonin] Scalia and I’ll do it — I’ll do it!”

“I could get in trouble for that, actually,” he sheepishly told his audience, who thought Wilmore was hilarious.

“Real funny,” Twitchy said.

But isn’t threatening to kill someone hate speech, which isn’t protected by the First Amendment?

How is threatening to smother someone with a pillow funny?

Wilmore also suggested that Trump was “race baiting” his way to win Super Tuesday and eventually the Republican nomination, with his “Make America Hate Again” campaign strategy.

Fortunately some on Twitter pointed out Wilmore’s hypocrisy, racism, intolerance, and unfettered bias.

Wilmore exudes Black privilege:

Wilmore is a tolerant, non-violent liberal.

He is selective in his hatred, in fact he’s started his own hate campaign:

Whether or not someone likes/dislikes Trump is irrelevant. Wilmore should not be allowed to incite violence or promote hate speech on television against anyone. Not all speech is free speech; and hate speech is not protected by the Constitution. It’s prosecuted. And he should at least lose his job. Other commentators have lost their jobs even for expressing non-hate speech.
