Hollywood comedian George Lopez is no fan of President Trump. When he took the stage at a gala for childhood diabetes, he should have left Trump alone. This even took place in Denver. It did not go as planned for Lopez.
Per Page Six:
We’re told the flap began when Trump backer and Liberty Media CEO Greg Maffei donated $250,000 but requested that Lopez cool it with the anti-Trump jokes at the Carousel Ball.
An attendee at the event — where tables sold from $5,000 to $100,000 to benefit the Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes — commented on a YouTube video that “George was asked nicely to stop making Trump jokes by a man in front row [Maffei] who just donated $250K.” But “George doesn’t, continues. Gets booed.”
We’re told that Lopez responded to Maffei, “Thank you for changing my opinion on old white men, but it doesn’t change the way I feel about orange men.”
Trying to recover and sensing the audience turn, Lopez said, “Listen, it’s about the kids . . . I apologize for bringing politics to an event. This is America — it still is. So I apologize to your white privilege.”
Even at this point, Lopez did not apologize for his error. He moved on to talking about the wall and Mexicans. According to the report from Page Six this brought more boos and led to him being booed off the stage.
It was made very clear to Hollywood comedian George Lopez from the beginning: This was not the time or place for political jokes. Lopez just didn’t get it.
Remember, during the 2016 election Lopez tweeted a photo of someone holding Trump’s head.

Another time he tweeted at Trump:
“you’re out of your f**king mind, listen if you have self-esteem issues.”

We get it, Lopez. You’ve been brainwashed like the rest of Hollywood. You hate President Trump and anything that is not along with the Hollywood far left narrative.
