Fake right wing conspiracist Jordan Klepper was up in arms on Tuesday’s episode of “The Opposition” over the 2018 Met Gala and its religion-inspired theme. And he was particularly galled by the attendance of fellow Comedy Central host Trevor Noah.
“‘Met’ stands for ‘metrosexual elitists think they’re better than you and won’t invite you to their party even though you have a hit show and fun hair,” said Klepper.
Klepper blasted this year’s theme, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” calling it “totally inappropriate. I mean Jesus Christ, religion is sacred, Godammit.”
He took particular issue with pop star Rihanna’s Pope-inspired outfit, which he considered “hugely offensive.”
“Not to this current Pope,” the pretend conservative said, “who is horrible and a total Trump hater. But to the history of the Papacy, which is an institution that has never been corrupt in any way.”
After dissing Met attendee “Fashion icon Mitt Romney, dressed as a man who is neither president nor secretary of state,” Klepper then brought up a picture of Noah’s outfit from the annual event.
“Well well well, if it isn’t my old ene-friend” — Klepper’s alternative to ‘frenemy’ — “Trevor Noah, looking like the bad guy in a Dan Brown novel. What’s with the cross, Trevor? I thought liberals were supposed to wear their hearts on their sleeves.”
Cue Klepper’s recurring “Sick Burn” graphic.
“Sorry I had to roast you so bad, Trev. But don’t feel bad for me, I had a great night at my ‘Me Gala,” he continued. “It’s a Jordan-only party where I dress up, drink, and yell at art I don’t understand. Which, to be fair, is all art.”
