Last night’s Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump had its highs (Snoop Dogg) and its lows (The Situation). The Jersey Shore star got in trouble early when a joke about fellow roaster Whitney Cummings received less laughs than Cummings’ pity clap to break the silence. (Never rely on a grenade joke, Sitch, if you think there’s a chance you might bomb.) From there, it got worse, with plenty of shots of the audience cringing (my favorite being Ice-T after the Situation said it’s okay that Trump keeps firing people because he’s completely let himself go anyway). The crowd booed loudest, however, when the Situation started a joke about Trump’s hot wife. “The best part is, she married you for love … Yep, she loves money.” Roast vet Jeffrey Ross had to jump up, tell the audience to let the Situation do his thing, and bare his own belly. Watch the excruciating and definitely NSFW video below.
That’s not to say Trump’s love life was off limits. Roasters just had to be more creative, like when Snoop made an X-rated joke about Trump’s ex-wives and his bodily fluids. Snoop’s biggest laugh came when he got political: “Donald says he wants to run for President and move on into the White House. Why not? It wouldn’t be the first time you pushed a black family out of their home.”
But his whole routine was solid. To the Situation: “I gotta say a few more things about my girl Snooki over there. Oh, that ain’t Snooki? Oh, my bad. I’m sorry. All white people who act black look alike to me.” To Cummings: “I roll blunts fatter than you, but you’ve been passed around a little bit more.”
