(FixThisNation.com) – Chris Rock, a comedian, claimed that it would be “stupid” for Democrats to want to arrest former President Donald Trump, stating that this would only help his popularity increase further. He then proceeded to draw a connection between Trump and the late rapper Tupac Shakur.

He added that it would be “like arresting Tupac” and that “He’s just gonna sell more records.”
He then finished his questions by asking whether they were stupid. Rock further commented on the allegations regarding the hush money payments made by Trump to adult film star Stormy Daniels during the 2016 election in exchange for her silence regarding an affair.
Rock proceeded to say that the move was “romantic” and then continued to state that everyone has been cheated on “Don’t you wish that the person that cheated on you paid off somebody so you wouldn’t find out?”
The full incident and ceremony are going to air on CNN on March 26.
