Monty Python Icon John Cleese Has Brutal Assessment Of Trump's Fox News Fans

Comedy legend John Cleese said there may be no point in trying to argue with Fox News viewers who support President Donald Trump.

″[T]he people who support him are basically so ignorant because they only ever get news from Fox News,Ē the Monty Python alum told The Daily Beast. ďI donít know what you say to people like that.Ē

He added:

To me, itís like people who go and watch professional wrestling and donít realize that itís fixed. If they canít see it when itís right under their nose, I have no idea how theyíre going to realize how wrong they are.


Cleese also called Trump ďan extraordinary caricature of an asshole.Ē

ďEvery time he makes a decision, no matter how impulsive it is, itís the one that makes him feel best about himself for the next 20 minutes,Ē he said.

3. He critiqued Sarah Palin several years back

in pretty much the same way. He ended it by saying "Sorry Michael. You are no longer the funniest Palin."

It is likely still on Youtube.

Love Monty Python.

4. I used to wonder if Michael Palin was . . .

. . . a distant relation to Sarah's husband.

And Monty Python rocks!!

( I once bought a fake latex python to set out on my porch in an effort to scare off cats and religious visitors. I also had a fake iguana. The python was named "Monty", of course, and the iguana was named "Gandolf". Alas, they were inferior quality latex and began to deteriorate.)

8. The people I knew who became fox news zombies were the type who were asleep through most

of their school education and are easily brainwashed and manipulated. They had very little interest or knowledge of history. One, after watching the Pearl Harbor movie exclaimed that they thought just one plane attacked the island. I think this makes it easier for the fascist to rewrite history, brainwash, ect...
