Chris Rock on McCain: ‘We Can’t All Dump Our First Wife And Marry a Rich One’
This election year has proved a boon for the chattering class of political pundits, but there are few on cable news who can break things down as well (or as loudly) as comedian Chris Rock. After making a memorable appearance on Letterman in September to rebut Bill Clinton (“Hillary lost!”), Rock showed up at a Barack Obama rally in Tampa over the weekend, and it wasn’t to promote Madagascar 2. While joking that he took his children trick-or-treating Friday at John McCain’s many houses, Rock critiqued the Republican candidate’s own wife-swapping, $US100 million bailout of yore. “You want somebody who can relate to what you have to say,” Rock continued. “Like if I have problems getting laid, I wouldn’t call Brad Pitt ’cause he wouldn’t know what I was talking about!” Clip above.
