Comedian Daniel Whitney, better known by the moniker "Larry the Cable Guy" has gone after actress/comedian Tina Fey for recent comments she made regarding white, college-educated women who voted for President Donald Trump.
Larry the Cable Guy recently appeared on "Kilmeade & Friends," a FOX news radio show that airs 9 a.m. until noon daily, where he called the Upper Darby native a "piece of crap" and suggested that she is out of touch with Americans.
“She is a piece of crap, let me just say. Nothing is going to affect her. Tina Fey's got millions of dollars, so no matter what decision Tina Fey makes votingwise, what is it going to affect her? ... She can quit working now, and off the money she has made, she is going to be generating about $1.4, $1.5 million a year sitting on her ass. So she is telling all these other people that are going out there and working 9 to 5, got four kids, they still have to go out there and work, and then they have to come home and do their house work. She is trying to tell these ladies that they're stupid? Really?"
Further defending his position, Larry the Cable Guy said while he's sure Fey is a "nice lady," that she has "to have some ridicule for stupid comments."
Larry the Cable Guy, is a comedian from Nebraska known for his catch phrase "Git R Done" and hosting shows like the "Redneck Extravaganza." He spent about eight minutes on the show discussing Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and the comments Fey made about the women who voted. She made the jokes during the American Civil Liberties Union telethon on Friday, including the following:
“A lot of this election was turned by white, college-educated women who now would maybe like to forget about this election and go back to watching HGTV. You can’t look away because it doesn’t affect you this minute," Fey said to those women, "but it’s going to affect you eventually.'”
Fey also told a joke that for Lent, Trump "gave up" assaulting women, and she said that Pence won't be able to "shut Planned Parenthood" down without his wife, Karen Pence, by his side.
Her joke about the vice president referred to a recent Washington Post profile on the Pences that reported Mike Pence will not dine alone with another woman than his wife, nor will he attend events where alcohol is being served without Karen Pence present.
Larry the Cable Guy continued, "It's easy for Tina Fey and somebody to ridicule somebody when everybody else is drywalling, and the hardest decision [she has] to make in [her] day is what kind of cheese spread do [she wants] from the deli tray when [she's] on a 15 minute break from filming whatever [she's] filming.
"The guy won, regardless of what you think of him."
Larry the Cable Guy has been public about his support of Trump in the past. Larry the Cable Guy will voice Mater, the animated character in Pixar's "Cars 3" premiering in June.
