George Lopez Says Comment About Assassinating Trump For Iran Was ‘A Joke’

(Breitbart) – Actor-comedian George Lopez walked back comments he made Sunday offering to accept a bounty to assassinate President Donald Trump.

While delivering the eulogy at Sunday’s funeral for Iranian terror chief Qasem Soleimani, a speaker suggested an $80 million bounty on Trump, a bounty Lopez said he’d take on for $40 million.

“[Iranian] authorities have put a bounty on American President Donald Trump’s head during the televised funeral of General [Qasem Soleimani] after he was assassinated last week,” said Chicano Worldstar on Instagram. “What are your thoughts?”

“We’ll do it for half,” responded George Lopez from his official Instagram account.

After searing backlash online — “arrest George Lopez” was trending on Twitter on Monday — Lopez is walking back his comment, saying it was “a joke” according to a Fox News report.

Meanwhile, the Secret Service says it is aware of the death threat Lopez made against President Trump.

“The Secret Service is aware of the [post] made by Mr. Lopez. The Secret Service takes all threats against the President and or any of our protectees seriously, and as a matter of practice, we do not comment on matters involving protective intelligence,” a spokesperson said in a statement.

To be clear, Lopez’s obsession with violence directed at Trump and his supporters dates back years.

As Breitbart News’ John Nolte notes:

In November of 2018, Lopez was charged with misdemeanor battery over an altercation with a man Lopez himself described as baiting him with “MAGA jokes.”

According to TMZ, Lopez “grabbed the back of the young man’s neck … a guy who had previously asked to take a pic with the comedian. The guy jabbed George with a Trump joke, and then all hell broke loose as George was on his way out.”

The next day police officers tracked Lopez down at a golf course (so much for being a man of the people). He was told he’s be receiving a court summons for misdemeanor battery.”

The alleged victim said it was all just a joke, a way to get the comedian to smile.

“On the count of 3 say Make America Great Again!” was all the man says he said. As Lopez walks past the man, the video shows the altercation, which begins as Lopez tries to grab the man’s phone.

That’s not all…

During the 2016 election, Lopez tweeted out a photo of drug kingpin Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán holding up Trump’s severed head like a trophy with the caption: “Make America Great Again.”

  1. Lopez shd. be visited by the FBI, who should seize his records, e-mails and any and all work product that can be used in formulating their domestic terrorist charges. He has proven to be dangerous and having attacked Trump supporters, the threat on the President’s life seems to be credible.

  2. I used to like to watch him and he was funny. Since he’s got his left arm out and thrashing for an audience, his jokes now aren’t funny or meaningful. He’s lost his fervor. Good bye George, the public eye is closed. You are no longer enjoyed or wanted.
    A fellow Mexican

  3. whether he says it was a joke or not. He said and I think he meant it. He should be arrested for treason and jailed along with a lot of other hollywood big mouths, messing, milano, streisand, midler and the like. All should be jailed for possible treason to the country. That will solve a lot of the hollywood corruption.

    • C.Eley Don’t forget Kathy Griffin she should have been put in jail by now for that picture of her holding a bloody head of Trump!

  4. This guy has never been anything but a loser!!! He is a big mouthed IDIOT, just like most if not all of Hollywood, and one of whom was never that funny to me! I have no more regard for him than I do common street thugs and he will never get anything from me but my contempt!!

    • AMEN Sandra and for the Non American below: who is entitled to their opinion – “You are neither funny nor informed and certainly have no pride in yourself or your country”

      What BTW did Trump do to her?
      SPEAK THE TRUTH and she reads the grocery store rag MSM commentary and has no idea why she even has her opinion.

      ^5 Sandra!!

    • George’s comment is not funny at all. It’s stupid. At one time I thought he could be funny, and I suppose he could still be. Stooping to this sort of comment, though, is simply and totally stupid.

    • Rachel, you’re a moron. But, then again I guess you support murdering innocents. Trump has done more to protect this nation than the last Oresudent. Trump has a backbone. He doesn’t grovel. Get a life.

  5. Lopez and all of these so titled entertainer has beens, need to spend time in the cross bar hotel for stating: They Would ASSASSINATE – Or Would Like to ASSASSINATE our President or anyone for that matter but in particular a PRESIDENT.
    They know what hate speech is – they invented it.
    It is their ANTIFA, BLM and OCCUPY movements that have taken Protests to VIOLENCE.
    It’s time Lopez and these others who speak of bombing the WH need to go to prison for 30 days and get a clue that they are NOT ABOVE THE LAW and do in fact have accountability to the Nation

  6. He is inciting violence against a sitting president. One of his mentally ill fans (all of them) may just take his advice.

  7. Yeah I used to enjoy George’s comedy. But now he brings their political views out and people want funny not his rants about Trump. SAD George I hope you can get your humor back and put your political agenda out of our faces.

  8. Why should lopez be treated any different than they way the radical left never trumpers treat consevatives? Threats to any President should be treated as serious. No one knows what is in his head! He should be smart enough to know the consequences. He said it, he ment it and should be sent to jail!!!! Same as they would do to a conservative.

  9. I think he needs to talk to the secret service and should be sitting in a federal prison. I did not think wanting to kill anyone is a joke

  10. He meant it. He was trying to impress his liberal friends and when he was held accountable it’s like , oh, I didn’t mean it.

  11. Lock this POS up ! The Secret Service would never let anyone else get by with this, so why Lopez ?? He’s proven he’s violent, unpredictable and about as funny as a clogged toilet !

  12. Secret Service has no sense of humor and the word “joke ” isn’t even in their vocabulary.
    Perhaps an image of his head on a pike and multiple threats against his life going viral will change his mind about how funny his “joke” was.

  13. There are times one should remain silent & be thought a fool than to speak & remove all doubt. “Joking” about having a bomb on an airliner & murdering Presidents are in that catagory.

  14. We need to start locking up these idiots. Same with Griffin and her stupid bloody beheading pic of our President. Someone needs to draw a line.

  15. So called “celebrities” like him feel it’s OK to say anything they want as long as they apologize later or just shine it off as a joke. Making an example of him would be helpful.

  16. He should be held accountable for his comments. Others would be charged
    With this offensive Babel – so should he ! Lock him up, please !
    God bless America ! – Carrol

    • Everyone should be held accountable for their comments, especially the KKK. Jokes about killing or extermination of someone because of their race should be illegal. Comments like that should not be taken lightly. We should not use freedom of speech to justify comments that promote violence and hate towards any person or group of people. This should apply to everyone, starting with our leaders. This is the reason Lopez shouldn’t make jokes about killing trump and is also the reason trump should not be saying all Mexicans are rapists. This principle should apply to all. Leaders especially need to lead by example.

  17. Who? Joke 🤓🤣😀🤣🤓🤣😀🤓
    Is the wagging of his tongue 👅 the method whats his name uses to justify his existence? Joke 🤣🤓😀🤔
    George Lopez – – > JOKE🤣🤓😂
    ATTN: George Lopez…”Your work Visa has expired! You have 1 hour to report to INS! Joke 🤔🤓😀
    George Lopez: please check your voice mail immediately. CBP and ICE are on their way to provide you an escort to the closest border crossing… – – – > Joke 🤣🤓😀

  18. F you George you f**king traitor. Go back to the hole you came from. Your are no true Mexican! From a Mexican who service in Vietnam 2 tours, 4 in Iraq, 1 in Afghanistan, 1 tour in Bahrain, 1 on the aircraft carrier in the gulf and Somalia. Where did you service to defend this country you tailor? Go back to hell!

  19. “Typical-Typical-Typical” (TM). Made millions joking about [and degrading] his race, gains a little [speech] power [due to his celebrity status]; then supports terrorist initiatives! What’s really FUNNY-is he’s just like the jokes he vomits out of his mouth. I don’t believe this “Vato’s” ever been in the military; has NO CLUE what’s going on and has quickly forgotten “September 11, 2001.”

    Sad…very sad; what a “Low Life.” Never made it out-still the hood rat he was. Sad…

  20. The individual, born in America, was abandoned by his father at two months and by his mother at 10 years. His poor grandmother and step-grandfather reared him, reluctantly to be sure. He ‘s used to rejection. HOWEVER, this is no excuse for his behavior and total lack of respect for others. He is a son of satan. As such, he should be investigated thoroughly. When determined to be criminally insane, he should be locked up in a solitary confinement padded cell.

  21. That was a joke? Is it any wonder that this idiot’s ” career” as a ” comedian” is more stale than last months tamales? Jorge you’re a PENDEJO AND A COWARD just like the idiot no- talent Kathy Griffin. When the Feds take notice of you, you morons attempt to walk back your stupid comments and claim that you were only joking. Spineless PENDEJO!!!!

  22. How come every left wing, has been “celebrity “ can apologize or excuse their wacky comments as a joke and move on? No, George Lopez it was not a joke, you threatened the President and need to be held accountable. Enough is enough!

  23. I think mr Lopez should got to jail because if me or someone else said that we would be in prison so why is he different ? Can anyone tell me I’m confused why he is not in jail with making threats to kill the president he’s a traitor in my eyes that should get deported

  24. Hey Lopez I’ll do you for travel fare you piece of crap! Trump2020, go away, aren’t you one of the clowns that were leaving if Donald was elected? Go, go now!

  25. Lock him up I guess the so called Pieces of Shit are immune from the Law put them all in the same cell Obama Clinton Romney Biden Cortez

  26. Lopez never was the sharpest knife in the drawer, The PGA (Professional Golfers Association) dropped him as a spokesman several years ago, too crude.

  27. Lopez is a friggin idiot and a has been,,,,,,,and he can try to crawfish out of what he said but the American public know all about the idiot actors who live totally in themselves and believe they should be exalted and put on a pedestal,,,bullshit,,,be honest, all of you,,,,you are just too damned lazy and ignorant to get a real job,,,,,be careful before your fantasy world comes crumbling down,,,,

  28. I guess if you’re a ‘Liberal’ it doesn’t matter what levels you’ll stoop to as long as it demeans President Trump. The difference between a real artist and a ho-hum performer is relative to the risks he’s willing to take. Piling on is not risky.

  29. Obviously George Lopez has crimes to hide. Why else would he be angry and scared?♥️🇺🇸👍🏻Make America Great♥️🇺🇸👍🏻

  30. Put huis ass in jail! Lopez it’s not funny! President Trump is protecting our country and people, if that bothers you move your pathetic ass to Iran! I hope the Secret Service put you in jail!

  31. Not a funny joke. But I’m not surprised he said that considering trump said all Mexicans are rapists in tweeter. It’s not surprising any Mexican would hate trumps guts. If I were Mexican i would be upset too and I probably wouldn’t like trump and trash him as much as possible. If trump wants people to say nice things about him, he needs to start being nice himself. As long as trump continues being himself, people will continue joking and saying nasty things about him. It’s all cause and consequence.
