Kathleen Madigan on Why People Have a Personal Connection to Trump

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

That's an interesting sociological thing 'cause you play all over the country. What is it? Do you think? What is the personal connection to Donald Trump? I don't know. I don't know why, like one lady in Florida. She was kind of a drunk grandma. You stood up in a balcony and a theater somewhere on the gulf side of Florida and said, Kathleen, I love you and I love Sarah Palin. Don't make fun of her. I had not said a word except Sarah Palin, comma. Now if the lady would have listened, my joke was really about the gist of it is there's no people in Alaska to have more respect for you if you were the game warden than I would if you said you were the governor because there's a lot. It's a lot more dangerous if you're okay. It's a stupid joke. It's silly innocuous. But that lady was so upset because she like, I don't know. I'm like, you can't love me and her. And you're at my show, so I'd pick me if I were you. Which one is it? I don't know what the Trump thing you could do any other Republican, any other Democrat and people do not lose their minds. There's something about I know this is going to sound snotty coastal liberal elite, but an education problem where they're just like, oh, I want people that sound dumb, like me. I just can't. I don't understand what the connection is. I it could go back to the, you know, George Bush, people are like, I'd like to have a beer with him. Right. Well, right. You might want to have a beer with me, but I shouldn't be running anything. I mean, just because I seem fun, which I am. You are that doesn't mean I'm qualified to work at NASA. I don't understand that leap. When people say, I think George Bush seemed fun too. The younger one to have a beer with after golf with a country club. I get it. Right. But what is that next level where I defend him like I would, my brother. It's weird.
