Lewis Black slams voters for picking pot over president: 'If Trump gets elected -- weed's not going to help'
Lewis Black (Comedy Central)

Lewis Black has been praying for a meteor to destroy the Earth before next month's presidential election, because he doesn't have any faith in humanity.


The comedian appeared Wednesday night on "The Daily Show," where he pointed out that only 55 percent of the electorate actually voted in 2012.

"More Americans saw 'Taken 2' that year -- and the whole plot is right there in the title," Black said. "Someone gets taken -- again."

Black thought voters would be motivated this year, "with a decorative hate squash just steps from the White House," but many voters say they won't cast ballots because they don't like either candidate.

"Listen jerk, this isn't like deciding not to go to the movies because they all suck," Black said. "Fact is, we're going to have to see a movie whether we like it or not -- and that movie is going to be four years long. And you better hope it's not the one that ends with Trump nuking Wisconsin."

It's not just apathy keeping younger voters from getting involved -- some of them are just lazy, Black said.

"Come on millennials, I know we f*cked things up for you -- but we were counting on you to fix things, not finish the job," Black said. "Is there nothing you people care about enough to get off your ass and vote?"

Apparently, according to news reports, some younger voters will vote for marijuana legalization measures but not for president.

"Why choose? Why not vote for weed to be president?" Black said. "At least then, if this country goes down in flames, we'll all get a nice contact high. On the other hand, if Trump gets elected -- weed's not going to help. You're going to need a f*cking anesthetic. And by anesthetic, I mean a suppository about this big that I'm going to shove up each and every one of your asses."
