Louis C.K. Just Gave the Most Perfect Rant About Liberals Who Are Refusing to Vote for Hillary

“Are you kidding me? Grow up!”


When it comes to voting, comedian Louis C.K. minces no words. “I don’t have any quarrel with somebody who votes for Trump if that’s what they feel they want,” C.K. told Conan O’Brien last night, “but if you’re a liberal who’s not going to vote, you’re a piece of shit.”

C.K. went on to criticize liberals who weren’t going to vote because they didn’t know how they felt about Hillary Clinton or because they didn’t like her voice. “Grow the fuck up! Are you kidding me?” he railed. “If you vote for Hillary, you’re a grown up, if you vote for Trump, you’re a sucker, if you don’t vote for anybody, you’re an asshole.” Watch the full clip above.

DOES IT FEEL LIKE POLITICS IS AT A BREAKING POINT?

It sure feels that way to me, and here at Mother Jones, we’ve been thinking a lot about what journalism needs to do differently, and how we can have the biggest impact.

We kept coming back to one word: corruption. Democracy and the rule of law being undermined by those with wealth and power for their own gain. So we're launching an ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project to do deep, time-intensive reporting on systemic corruption, and asking the MoJo community to help crowdfund it.

We aim to hire, build a team, and give them the time and space needed to understand how we got here and how we might get out. We want to dig into the forces and decisions that have allowed massive conflicts of interest, influence peddling, and win-at-all-costs politics to flourish.

It's unlike anything we've done, and we have seed funding to get started, but we're looking to raise $500,000 from readers by July when we'll be making key budgeting decisions—and the more resources we have by then, the deeper we can dig. If our plan sounds good to you, please help kickstart it with a tax-deductible donation today.

Thanks for reading—whether or not you can pitch in today, or ever, I'm glad you're with us.
