Comedian Chris Rock not “Jumping for Joy” over Biden win

Grown Ups actor Chris Rock is “kind of optimistic” about Biden’s election, but isn’t “jumping for joy” like other democrats.  

“I don’t know. When Biden won, I wasn’t jumping for joy. I was like Tom Hanks in ‘Cast Away’; I just wanted to hug Helen Hunt. You know, he’s not jumping for joy when he sees the ship. He’s just like, ‘Where’s Helen Hunt, man? I’ve been eating coconuts for years. Can I just f***ing hold Helen Hunt?’” He said in a Wednesday interview to promote the upcoming season of FX’s Fargo.

“How do I feel? I mean, I’m kind of optimistic,” he continued. “I just hope that all that’s happened, that this whole year was not in vain, and that people and the government doesn’t just go back to business as usual.” 

Rock hopes that Biden will take the politics out of science by creating a “Supreme Court of Science” to oversee the nation’s environmental and medical situations. 

“I would hope that Mr. Biden institutes some scientific department — like, the Supreme Court of Science, just for the lack of a better name — that would be in charge of anything medical or environmental,” he dreamt up. “Basically, I would hope that the government instills a mechanism, so that if there’s ever anything environmental or medical, this mechanism would take over — thus, eliminating politics out of a life-and-death situation.”

He’s hoping this “department” will be created in response to the pandemic, like the Department of Homeland Security was created in the wake of September 11th.

“Like, basically, there’s a 9/11 everyday. 3,000 people died in 9/11. Somehow, we got the Department of Homeland Security, and no one questioned that. But now, we have a situation where, whatever — 300,000, a half-a-million people are going to die,” he said. “Right? So, what I hope is that we do something.”

Despite his lack of enthusiasm for Biden, Rock had no love for Trump, saying that the President lacks “empathy and competence.”

“Because we didn’t just experience a pandemic. You know, Donald Trump did this thing… Like, when security companies build new locks or security systems, they hire crooks to show you the weaknesses of the system. Well, Donald Trump showed us the weakness of our government,” Rock remarked. 

“Now, it’s up to Joe Biden and Congress and the Senate to get rid of those weaknesses — to instill safeguards that actually protect us from unqualified mad men and mad women, so that we never have to be at the mercy of a person that does not exhibit empathy and competence.”

Wow, is Chris Rock not very bright:
Now, it’s up to Joe Biden and Congress and the Senate to get rid of those weaknesses — to instill safeguards that actually protect us from unqualified mad men and mad women, so that we never have to be at the mercy of a person that does not exhibit empathy and competence.”
Hey Chris Rock, the idiots in the government and Congress created the weaknesses of our government, the deep state would be one of them. Term limits could help but they will never be agreed to by the people it would affect, another hole in the system.

So is Chris praying for Harris to take over? A Harris presidency would insure GOP takes over in 2022 and thereafter. I’m not counting Trump out yet from 5 weeks ago but I’m not counting on the court to do him any justice.

How f*****g naive is Chris Rock? He wants the United States to go back to normal? Are you kidding me? He has no idea that “back to normal” is a quaint way of saying that the federal government will undermine anything and everything that Americans believe in and so very much want to have come to pass. Unreal.

Many many people die every year from cancer, heart disease, etc. Many more than even covid . So why a special department for covid? The homeland security department was for terrorism not deaths. I don’t understand.

A special department must be created for stupid people like him since the public education system is definitely failing and churning out idiots like Chris Rocks by the thousands.

I have said from the very beginning of this whole Biden for President thing, if he were ever to get into the White House he won’t be there very long, so we have nothing to worry about from Biden. The real problem is that if he lasts 6 months I will be surprised. Biden will be relegated to kissing babies, smelling the hair of various females and on occasion cutting the ribbon at the opening of the new Walmart. Harris with the help of Pelosi will enact the 25th Amendment and Biden will be shipped off to his basement in Delaware where he will hold press conferences to an empty room and a camera that isn’t plugged in. Harris, with Pelosi by her side will take control and America as we know it will no longer exist.

The best thing Donald Trump did was reveal the corruption of our Government and needed to be re-elected to get rid of it. Instead we just put it right back in office with Beijing Biden and all of the Obama crooks.

Again, these celebrities are as shallow and brain dead as proven again by Chris Rock. Cloud 9 might be a country that these delusional celebrities want to live where they only live in a bubble of make beliefs.
Donald Trump showed us who the corrupt politicians are and the the corrupt media and likes of you Chris Rock who seemed to be beyond logic.
