Watch Jim Carrey on Real Time with Bill Maher09 Sep 2018
By Eva Araújo (Web correspondent)
Tonight, "Kidding" will premiere and as part of the promoting Jim Carrey has been on a few talk shows and Friday was on 'Real Time with Bill Maher'. His first-ever appearance on HBO’s political talk show.
Right after walking through the stage to join Bill and the panel, Jim jokes about Nike.
“Check this out. I went out today and bought me some Nikes!” declared Jim as he lifted his feet onto the desk. Showing a new pair of Nike sneakers. In honor of the brand’s promo deal with former 49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who began taking a knee during the national anthem before NFL games in 2016 to protest police brutality and systemic racial injustice. Carrey previously hailed Nike’s decision with a cartoon.
The main subject they talk about was Trump. After all the show is about politics and Jim join the panel with his opinions, making the audience laugh too.
Trump is “a used car salesman,” said Jim, whose artwork has taken aim at the Trump administration the last year.
“He didn’t make America great again but he did turn back the odometer,” he added. “So who knows what the hell is wrong with us.”
Jim did have a message for Trump’s supporters, however.
“We’ve got to get back to a place where we realize that a vote is not who you are,” he said. “Because you voted Republican doesn’t mean you’re stupid, you’re not different, you’re not worthless. I could break bread with anybody who voted for Trump. We could find some common ground and a reason to love each other.”
At the end of the interview said:
"You wanna see a mushroom cloud? Ignore Trump for a week!"
"Canadians can be nice because they have healthcare! Because they have a government that care about them."
