Louis C.K. and ESPN pay the price for feuding with The Donald

"Trump the Establishment" ends "Never bet against Donald John Trump."

I offer this tidbit as well: "Never feud with Trump."

I am keeping a list of fools who feuded and crashed and burned later. Previously I listed 22 people (adding two more after I posted the piece). Now for Numbers 23 and 24.



First up is Louis C.K., who decided to do some virtue signaling in 2016:
In a Saturday morning email blast announcing the sixth episode of his web series “Horace and Pete,” C.K. included a lengthy postscript urging readers not to vote for Trump.
“Please stop it with voting for Trump,” C.K. writes. “It was funny for a little while. But the guy is Hitler. And by that I mean that we are being Germany in the ’30s. Do you think they saw the sh-t coming? Hitler was just some hilarious and refreshing dude with a weird comb over who would say anything at all.”
Later in the email, C.K. implores his conservative readers to vote for a different GOP candidate.
“We shouldn’t have to vote for someone because they’re not a shocking c— billionaire liar,” C.K. writes. “We should choose based on what direction the country should go… If you are a true conservative. Don’t vote for Trump. He is not one of you. He is one of him. Everything you have heard him say that you liked, if you look hard enough you will see that he one day said the exact opposite. He is playing you.”
Speaking of playing, apparently Louis C.K. likes to play with himself naked in front to women.That got him in trouble when the New York Times exposed him.

From Variety:
The New York premiere of Louis C.K.'s upcoming film, I Love You, Daddy, set for Thursday, has been canceled. Reps for the premiere, due to take place at the Paris Theatre, initially cited "unexpected circumstances."
A source tells The Hollywood Reporter that a New York Times story on the comedian is about to break, and the premiere was canceled in case it is damaging. Additionally, Louis C.K.'s planned appearance on CBS' The Late Show With Stephen Colbert was also canceled, with William H. Macy taking his place.
From CNN:
HBO has taken steps to distance itself from Louis C.K. The network announced the comedian will not appear in its upcoming "Night of Too Many Stars: America Unites for Autism Programs" event and said his previous projects will be pulled from HBO On Demand services.
HBO, like CNN, is owned by TimeWarner.
"Night of Too Many Stars," an event featuring stand-up performances and sketches, is set to air as scheduled on November 18 and will be hosted by Jon Stewart.
He is losing his livelihood for being a jerk.

Literally.

Meanwhile, ESPN chose not to fire Jemele Hill after she tweeted that Trump is a white supremacist -- even though it fired Curt Schilling for calling Obama "Hitler."

And now there is this.
Following a year of layoffs, ESPN is expected to have another round after Thanksgiving.
Over 100 staffers could lose their jobs in the layoffs, including positions on the television side, producers, executives and those in digital and technology, according to Sports Illustrated. SportsCenter is expected to be "hit hard" and some on-air talent could be out of a job.
Wonder if Hill will keep her job.

Now I am not saying this is cause and effect. Trump has nothing to do with these situations.

But I think it shows the quality of his haters. ESPN management became too involved in pushing lefty politics to notice it was losing customers. Now it has to cut staff. Again.

As for Louis C.K., he should have stuck to comedy instead of social commentary. Anyone can call Trump "Hitler." It's easy. What is hard is making people laugh.

Which explains why late night television hosts in America stopped doing monologues, and instead do diatribes.

Not everyone who feuds with Trump winds up worse for the ordeal, but enough do to give a person pause.

  1. People like this guy are not really feuding with The Donald. They are really feuding with the people who are likely to be supporters of The Donald, who don't like being lectured to and insulted...which is why the careers of these people turn south when the "insultees" have had enough and choose to get back at the "insulters".

  2. I never heard of this gentleman but if he is like most comedians of today, he is not funny. His anti-Trump crap keeps him right with the entertainment in-crowd. Not too sad to hear of another loser losing.

    Same with ESPN but I don’t think they dare fire Hill. It would hurt their liberal credentials.

  4. It's going to get so actors regard sassing Trump in the same light as saying "Macbeth".

  5. Never heard of Loser Louis until this affair came to light. Now I've seen some of his "comedy," and that 30 seconds was enough, no- far more than enough.

    Like so many today, he isn't actually a comedian. Louis the Loser's stuff isn't funny, it's virtue-signalling with a nasty edge to it. He has to try to be dirtier than everybody else, or he'll get buried in his own manure!

    The good news is that he's now apologized. As anyone who's read "SJWs Always Lie" knows, an apology is terminal. It means that you have admitted your guilt, your deviation from PC has been admitted, and now your destruction will be complete; the piss-ants known as SJWs will make sure of that!

    So good riddance, Loser. Been nice not knowing you, and that re-commences immediately!
