The comedian contended that his assessment wasn't a political position.
Luckily, Louis C.K. isn’t on Twitter, because some tweets are likely headed his way after his Tuesday night visit to The Late Show.
Sitting down with host Stephen Colbert, the comedian was promoting his new Netflix stand-up special when the conversation shifted to Donald Trump. The Emmy winner broke down the food chain of liars, beginning with someone who got caught in a lie and ending up at the president.
“He’s just a gross, crook, dirty, rotten, lying sack of sh–,” said C.K., earning strong support from the crowd. The comedian contended that his assessment wasn’t a political position. The comic repeatedly called Trump a “lying sack of sh–” during the interview.
At one point, Colbert singled out one seemingly random fan as a Trump voter, causing C.K. to respond. “He lied to him. He didn’t lie to me. Everybody else was like, ‘Yeah, no, that’s not true.’ But that guy bought it,” he said.
