George Lopez: Comment About Assassinating Trump for Iran was ‘a Joke’

It’s very fashionable to make jokes and even threats against conservatives — up to and including the president, but one comedian went too far — and backpedaled in a hurry.

George Lopez made a comment about a supposed bounty on President Donald Trump on Twitter – indicating he would like to cash in by assassinating the president himself. Lopez was quick to back up and state that his statement was just a joke. The “joke” claims came after a fast and furious backlash on social media.

The bounty in question sprung from an Instagram post by an unverified account. The post suggested that Iran has offered a sum of $80 million to anyone who assassinates the president. This came after the funeral of Iranian general Qasem Soleimani, who was killed by US forces via President Donald Trump’s orders last week.

Lopez highlighted the bounty and replied he would do the job for less than was offered.

“We’ll do it for half,” Lopez shared.

It didn’t take long for Twitter users to notice, and both Lopez’ name and the hashtag #ArrestGeorgeLopez were swiftly trending on Twitter. Some users even requested Secret Service intervention, demanding that the threat against the president be taken seriously.

Lopez himself left the conversation quickly and his PR team stepped in. His representatives were quick to report that the comment was only a joke; they spoke to Fox News and other media organizations in an attempt to minimize the damage.

Not all Twitter users were upset by the comedian’s remarks, rushing to his defense and comparing the incident to remarks made in the past by conservative performers. In 2012, Ted Nugent made headlines when he was investigated by the Secret Service for mentioning a gun in the same sentence as name of then President Barack Obama. Nugent stated that President Obama could “suck on my machine gun” and outrage promptly ensued. The singer’s remarks were investigated by the Secret Service, but no further action was taken.

This was not the first time Lopez spoke out against the president or conservatives. He has often taken to social media and other platforms to share jokes and his negative opinions about President Trump. Past antics included pretending to urinate on the president’s Walk of Fame star in Hollywood, and even getting in a fight with a Trump supporter at a restaurant.

Lopez has also stated that the president’s children should be considered “anchor babies” since First Lady Melania Trump was not born in the United States. Even the comedian himself seemed to think that the latest comment was too much, and he has been quiet ever since, likely hoping the Secret Service isn’t about to call on him, as they called on Ted Nugent in 2012.

    • HEY GEORGE: YOU NEED TO BE PUT AWAY FOR SAYING SOMETHING LIKE THAT ABOUT OUR PRESIDENT, HIS CHILDREN AS ANCHOR BABY AND ABOUT MELANIE. YES YOU NEED TO GET OUT OF AMERICA, OR GO TO PRISON FOR THREATS. YOU ARE NOT WANTED HERE IN OUR BEAUTIFUL AMERICA, HOME OF THE BRAVE…..

  1. The joke went to far and was not funny…he should be arrested by the CIA and fined for the joke he tweeted out to millions of people that take him seriously. But no one ever gets in trouble in Hollywood for there miss conduct… is that funny too?

  2. Hypocrisy of the left is sickening…Why is it the left leaning Wackadoodles think the law doesn’t apply to them? Old George is another hollyweird POS.

    • Why do they think the law does not apply to them? Is that rhetorical? It is obvious that the law does not apply to them. Unless you do something as stupid as Felicity Huffman, there are NO consequences. Clinton, Obama, Learner and a lot of Representatives break the law with impunity.

      • Because it never has. The law is different for Hollywood. And that is why they need to keep their opinions to themselves.

  3. Another Hollyweird lost soul. Anything can be said or done, if it furthers their careers and financial status. Heaven help anyone that reciprocates.

  4. In 1960 I stood under as a child, a B52, waiting to protect all Americans, then and in the future. He was future here, and no matter what side of the isle our President was on, I was there. I have a winning President now I personally feel for all. This Comedy character should be arrested and what ever you like this is not a joke. Too many crazies out there and a lot with no common sense, that is the problem. I as a VET want him arrested. Rest is up to you. The point needs to be made is not acceptable !

  5. Arrest that ass an put him an anyone else in jail that makes these remarks. Makes me sick. Don’t like my president. Get the f. Out of this country

  6. Hey dumbass George Lopez, if something or someone tries to endanger our President, guess who we are coming after.
    Your not funny and should be told to leave this country.

  7. Threatening the President of the United States or anyone else life is not a joke. Wonder what ole George would do if someone threatened his life. BOYCOTT !!!
    Hatred and treats are all the Demo’s have to offer to US Citizens.

  8. The answer in a Society such as ours is: BOYCOTT! No one forces us to watch anything on TV, Night Clubs or Movies. We have that power. Performing is his Bread and Butter. Ignoring him is our right. So turn turn him off, or walk out.
    Sooner or later he will be in the breadline for starving “performers”.

  9. WHY MAKE A SICK JOKE ABOUT THE PRESIDENT. HE MADE MONEY IN THE USA GET HIM OUT OF THE COUNTRY HE HAS NO LOYALTY TO USA ONLY HIS POCKETBOOK.!

  10. That’s the REASON they’re called SECRET SERVICE! . . . you won’t see them until they NAB you – and for a great reason, like SECURITY issues (Get it?!? – NEAT, huh!). Team Trump and his allies 2020. And, don’t forget to check YOUR pocket book with it being even MORE full of cash.

  11. I am really having a tough time understanding actors & comedians such as Lopez, DiNero, Baldwin, Kimmel and many others that think it is a game to see who can attack the United States of America with words and false accusations the harshest before someone goes after them. Very disrespectful people that do not deserve the life they enjoy (or do they? maybe they are really miserable and want to make others miserable too). I agree with Boycotting all of Hollywood with a very few exceptions.
    GOD BLESS AMERICA AND OUR PRESIDENT.

  12. Hey George bus your sorry Hispanic butt to Mexico,Guatemala etc and threaten THEIR LEADERS YOUD BE DEAD SECONDS AFTER YOU OPENED YOUR MOUTH.Trump IS MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN and if that means KILLING VILE MURDERERS WHO PLOT AND KILL OUR SOLDIERS IM OK WITH THAT.

  13. Just where in the h-ll is the secret service and the Fbi on this threat? It is about time this joker is put in a slammer.

    • I would like to know why Geoge is not in jail I believe anyone that threatens any President of the US needs to be charged and put in jailThis is Wrong. We lost President Kennedy and almost lost President Reagan. Please arrest this man and make home pay the consequences of this threat!! We need to keep our President Trump ! I am really sick of the FBI and security from doing the right thing NOW. It is not funny!!

  14. Arrest the dumb ass for threatening the president. That was no joke an and should not be ignored. Send butt face to Mexico or Iran where he belongs but first lock him in a dungeon for 10 years

  15. Not only Lopez look at all of the idiots right here that daily threaten Trumps life. First off is Maxine Waters one of the worst look at all of thhe stars that wants to bomb the white house and all of the other threats. I for one would like to see all of them either deported and their passports taken away or a long jail term in Cuba

  16. George Lopez is a sick person that needs to be locked up so that he may think about what he has said and also to show respect to the office of the president of the United States of America, and that goes to anyone else that disrespects the President period…..

  17. What a sick bastard!!! What do you expect from a low class big mouth Mexican.
    Liberals are the new cancer and this country needs to cut this cancer off from the roots.
    There now you have it.

  18. It is time that Hollywood people such as, George L., DiNero, Baldwin, Kimmel, View Ladies, people in the House, and many others that spread evil, hostile words and actions against our President and what our founding fathers created to be stopped and held accountable!!! I DO NOT believe this is what Freedom of Speech really was meant to be. They have done much damage with their words in spreading hostility and disrespect to anyone that does not agree with them. Whatever happened to values, helping and supporting each other no matter what party you are? What George Lopez said should be taken serious and be investigated. Even if he is a Hollywood/Comedian. He should be sensored, investigated and held accountable for what he said. It shows he will do anything to hurt our President. It is not funny! It is totally out of line and dangerous. He should have to serve time for it. Let him be sent to another country and see what happens if he acts that way there. We should be supporting what is good for the U.S. and our people. Whatever happen to respect in the United States. I am against socialism. It is time to start to appreciate what we have in the United States. It is time to take time to spread kindness and support to keep our country strong for now and our future youth. If you can not appreciate the freedoms we have in the U. S., then leave.

  19. THIS UGLY DISGUSTING BEANER NEEDS TO BE SENT BACK TO MEXICO AFTER A NICE LONG JAIL TERM. I AM SICK AND TIRED OF THESE LOUSY HOLLYWOOD CORK SOAKERS.

  20. It always amazes me…how brave these people feel they are for for these threats against President Trump. I personally didn’t appreciate what Obama did to America in his eight years. But as far as threatening his life, no way. There ARE crazies out their that would actually assassinate this president, and get total cheers from the wacko left. Trump has truly made America great again, and made us a lot safer as well. TRUMP PENCE 2020.

  21. I wish you all the harm you inflicted on my president will come and harm you and your family in every way.You may not believe in God with all your radical hollywood friends but I am sure you were looking for his help when you needed a transplant.

  22. lopez, I met you when I worked the will rogers airport. your nothing but trash and your not even funny. your uneducated and need to retire like today. im sick of uneducated loud mouth chauvinistic pigs like you that just love to hit on women and run your loud mouth for no reason. bye

  23. Hey George, u r a worthless piece of crap and u should be prosecuted to the fullest. Enough is enough for letting these so called people get away with this sh-t. If us rep. would.ve said something like this about obama,we would,ve had a visit the day we posted it.If nothing else, make an example of this jerk to show the elites in Hollywood that enough is enough.
