Lewis Black went on a hilarious rant about the Confederate flag and the Republicans supporting it on CNN yesterday. The comedian got himself so worked up that CNN had to cut his mic as he talked about the issue being “tough titties” for Republicans who believe it is a state’s rights issue.
The hosts looked distinctly uncomfortable as Black got increasingly animated, with Chris Cuomo helpfully translating Black’s breast analogy as being “Latin, of course, for — it means, issues that you must deal with.”
Not dissuaded in the slightest, Black continued his attack on the flag supporters. “You can have it in your house!” shouted Black sarcastically.
“If it’s that important, put it over the fireplace! Stare at it! Wake up and look at the marvelous flag! Unbelievable.”
