  1. Patton Oswalt is not funny. The Hollywood idiots should not spread their moron ideals. Hey Hollywood idiots no one cares about your political beliefs just do your Damn job – dance, sing, or act and nothing more. Get a grip public these Hollywood idiots are so far removed from the real world.

  2. None of this was funny. It's surprising this guy didn't get in one decent joke for a whole six minutes. Is this guy supposed to be funny or is he new at this? Never even heard of him.

  3. I'm a democrat and I hate that pretty much every award show or music event keeps turning into a DNC rally.

  4. This was pretty funny. Not quite as funny as someone who was an actual stand-up comedian, but it was okay. He had some good jokes and I'm a trump supporter and I wasn't really offended by what he said. I like the interaction with James Woods. "all those egg avatars." That was kind of funny.
    Just one thing though, when I saw the Writers Guild, I thought they were actual writers, not screenwriters.

  5. Every thing he said wasn't funny, and the best part was when that guy got up on stage. And that was only funny because the rest was so bad.

  6. This guy is a total ass.. always has been. He's always been a pathetic little piss ant. President Trump has not slowed down since he took office with over 200,000 new jobs in the funnel and a pledge of nearly $80 BILLION DOLLARS in new investments by companies that would not BE HERE WITHOUT TRUMP! And he just got started.. with a cabinet the Democrats are dragging ass on. Waite until everyone's in place.. he will make Obama look like the punk he is.

  7. Congratulations! You convinced 0 Trump supporters that they're wrong!

    I seriously can't be the only one who realizes that preaching to the choir doesn't help anything can I?
