On the latest episode of Conan, Conan O’Brien asked Patton Oswalt for his thoughts on President Trump. Clearly, it was not the first time Oswalt had thought about the subject. (Video below.)
“He really shoved into our faces how not progressive and evolved America is,” Oswalt said.
“Eight years of a black president, and our choices were this insanely qualified woman and a racist scrotum dipped in Cheeto dust,” the comedian continued. “And the country said, ‘well, let’s see what the scrotum has to say.”
Oswalt went on to describe how “Trump is our racist palate cleanser,” to roars from the audience.
The clip does not paint a pretty picture of the American public, but it’s hard not to laugh. If Trump leaves any shred of a positive legacy, it will be the gift he gave to progressive comedians and their audiences.
