Comedian Slams Trump: We Can’t Let ‘One Bozo Define’ The Whole Country
Comedian Aziz Ansari slammed president-elect Donald Trump and called him a “bozo” Thursday night.
The 33-year-old comedian made his disparaging remarks about Trump during his acceptance speech at the 2016 American Ingenuity Awards In Washington, D.C., according to The Hill. (RELATED: Aziz Ansari: Trump ‘Makes Me Scared For My Family’)
“I know we’re living in a strange time and a lot of people seem to be losing faith in this country and the people in it, and I think it’s bullshit, man, because we can’t let the activities and ideas and thoughts of this one bozo define us as a country,” Ansari said. “There’s millions of us that are doing amazing things, and let’s let that speak for us, not other people.”
The comedian was recognized for his show “Master of None” on Netflix.
Ansari was the first person of the night to turn things political but he wasn’t the only one that was struggling with the results of the election.
“If I told you about a head of state, known for shady business deals, despised by many, well-known for his marriages and affairs, threatening people through certain power, obsessed with popularity … I’d be describing Emperor Nero,” archaeologist Sarah Parcak remarked during her speech.
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Ansari and the rock band OK Go were among the list of notables who were recognized for their work impacting American culture.
