When Australian comedian Jim Jefferies went off on the lax gun laws in the United States during his Netflix comedy special it sent the right-wing and pro-arsenal advocates into an online meltdown. Now, he’s giving Donald Trump that same treatment.
In his latest Netflix special, “Freedumb,” Jefferies admits that Trump has been brilliant for comedians and there is a part of him that wants to see how “crazy sh*t can get.”
But then he crushes Trump supporters, who believe Trump is a “straight talker” because he says simple, declarative sentences that simplify complex issues down to a second-grade level.
“‘I’m going to make America great again’ and you’re like ‘I got every word in that sentence.’ He’s like ‘I’m gonna build a wall.’ ‘I have a wall at home! You’re a straight talker!’” Jefferies explained.
When it comes to Trump’s policies, Jefferies enlightens the audience that the campaign promises cannot and will not actually happen. Mexico will never pay for “the wall.” Banning Muslims from the United States is never going to happen.
“He’s like a kid running for class president who’s just walking around going ‘And we’re going to have two lunches and there’s gonna be a soda machine in every classroom!’” Jeffries said.
“What he does is he preys on fear,” Jeffries explained, referring to Trump’s allegations that all Mexicans are rapists and murderers. Every terrorist attack in the last year has followed with Trump going after Muslims, even going so far as to demand we go after their families as well.
“As soon as he says that, ISIS have f*cking won,” Jeffries says. Terrorist attacks are a “recruitment tool” and Jefferies explains that a recruitment tool “can only work if hate is bred.” Trump is leading the marching band.
“Now you’re a 16-year-old boy or girl that’s a Muslim living in this country,” he continues, describing a hypothetical scenario. “You’ve lived your entire life in this country. You’ve always considered yourself American and then all of a sudden someone who could be your President says you are not welcome here and that you should be put on a register. Now that kid, how f*cking quickly do you think that that kid could be radicalized now? Before he wasn’t gonna be radicalized at all.”
He closes by saying that Trump is attempting to beat hate by using hate. “And hate doesn’t beat hate. It’s never f*cking beaten hate. It just breeds more hate.”
