CSI: Trumpenfreude

Michael Avenatti was not the only self-appointed, self-righteous nemesis of President Trump keeping the police busy. The LAPD charged the Creepy Porn Lawyer with beating a woman this week.

In New Mexico, police charged George Lopez with battery after he assaulted a man who filmed him at Hooter's.

The Schadenfreude for the supporters of our president is delicious.

Lopez, born in L.A., has made a career of racial humor for largely Hispanic audiences. He had a good life but made the mistake of trying to start a feud with Donald John Trump.

Never feud with The Donald.

In 2015, The Blaze reported, "Comedian George Lopez isn’t too happy with businessman and GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump — a fact that became patently clear when the entertainer led an audience this weekend in an expletive-laden chant against the political contender.

:'This country is better with Latinos in it,' Lopez said to rousing cheers during a performance in Phoenix, Arizona, on Saturday night.

"Then, he proceeded to yell, 'Donald Trump!' to which the audience repeatedly responded, 'F**k that puto!'"

Turn the ethnicity around and we would be calling Lopez a racist.

And he is. In 2016, USA Today reported, "George Lopez rips Melania Trump: 'You need to speak English.'"

Reporter Maeve McDermott and her editors failed to note that to become a citizen, Mrs. Trump had to show a proficiency in English. The newspaper also failed to note she speaks five languages. I have requested a correction.

But his anger and hate began catching up with Lopez.

In 2017, the New York Post reported, "Comic George Lopez was booed off stage at a gala for juvenile diabetes in Denver last week, over an anti-Donald Trump routine that fell flat with the crowd.

"We’re told the flap began when Trump backer and Liberty Media CEO Greg Maffei donated $250,000 but requested that Lopez cool it with the anti-Trump jokes at the Carousel Ball.

"An attendee at the event — where tables sold from $5,000 to $100,000 to benefit the Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes — commented on a YouTube video that 'George was asked nicely to stop making Trump jokes by a man in front row [Maffei] who just donated $250K.' But 'George doesn’t, continues. Gets booed.'

"We’re told that Lopez responded to Maffei, 'Thank you for changing my opinion on old white men, but it doesn’t change the way I feel about orange men.'"

Which is odd because as he ages, Lopez is getting kind of orange himself.

I doubt he will wind up in an orange jumpsuit.

But he will have to make a court appearance in New Mexico.

TMZ reported, "George Lopez will have to answer for allegedly getting handsy with a fan who trolled him with a Trump joke and a camera in his face, 'cause he's been charged with a crime, TMZ has learned.

"Law enforcement sources tell us George will have to appear in court next month on a misdemeanor battery charge for allegedly roughing up a guy who tried filming him at a Hooters in October ... as the comedian was leaving the restaurant.

"We broke the story. George grabbed the back of the young man's neck, a guy who had previously asked to take a pic with the comedian. The guy jabbed George with a Trump joke, and then all hell broke loose as George was on his way out."

I welcome Lopez to the Trump Schadenfreude List, which doesn't discriminate against people because of their sex, sexual preferences, race, ethnicity, or religion. All you have to do to make this list is be dumb enough to start a feud with the president only to wind up worse for the ordeal.

  1. Gee, if only Michael Avenatti was a member of the Duke Lacross team or a male student at UVa, then he would be innocent and falsely accused in your eyes.

    1. Who said I didn't give him the presumption of innocence?

      And of course the team and the University men were innocent.

  2. Lopez and Avenatti will plead innocent by reason of TDS. A leftist judge will acquit them.

  3. Back in 06 when we in AZ were being boycotted by entertainers cos of Prop 101, Lopez vowed to never appear in AZ. Of course, a couple of years later he was back for the dineros.
    I wrote in the local rag at the time of Groucho Marx who said, "These are my principles. If you don't like them, I have others."
    To their credit the lefty AZ Republic did publish it.

  5. In the old days, you could switch on the TV and see Gilligan's Island, Lost in Space, etc.

    Nowadays, the programming features Daniels, Avenatti, Lopez.

    I dunno ... all the realism's gone out of TV nowadays.
