Adam Carolla, Who Hosts A Podcast For A Living, Thinks Poor People Are Lazy
Can you imagine being The Daily Caller (or any other conservative media outlet that is trying to be cool), and your biggest celebrity “get” is an extended interview with fading bully/outdated hair product connoisseur Adam Carolla? You’d milk that forever, including highlighting his claim about how rich people are better than poor people, mostly because they’re rich.
Rich people are “better than poor people. They just are,” Carolla said. “I’ve hung around with plenty of poor people and I’ve hung out with rich people. They work harder, generally. More focused. The folks I grew up with, the poor people I grew up with, fairly lethargic, did a lot of complaining, smoked a little too much, drank a little too much, blamed everybody but themselves a little too much.”
We cannot even argue with that one bit, mostly because it is blindingly stupid. Now, we don’t doubt that generations of grinding poverty can wear people down, can render them a bit less “focused,” probably because they’re tired of working 16 hours a day and getting kicked in the teeth by someone like Carolla, but that doesn’t actually equal lazy. Also, Adam Carolla, you host a fucking PODCAST for a living. A PODCAST. Shit, that’s the only thing lazier than blogging we can think of. At least we have to type all day every day.
We would like to invite Adam Carolla to do a poor person job that combines the tedium of menial labor with the body-shattering difficulty of constant physical exertion (think working in a warehouse, for example) for just one fucking day and then he can tell us about poor people laziness. Dick.
Would you like some more cool humor from Adam Carolla? Probably not! But if we have to watch it, so do you.
Carolla says he wants to be the Al Sharpton of rich white guys, but right now Donald Trump is the Al Sharpton of rich white guys, because this is how Donald Trump operates, per Adam Carolla.
Let’s say your tee time is 10am but you get to the clubhouse and you’re a little bit late and they put you in a foursome with a couple Asian guys that you don’t wanna be in a foursome with, he jumps in, you know, he makes it right, and I would like to take over his mantle.
We actually have no idea what on earth that means except that it manages to sound equal parts racist, dickish, and nonsensical, so basically a hat trick of terrible there from Adam Carolla.
Before we go, we really need to slam the Daily Caller for having the most fucking low-rent interview room and technique ever. Carolla and sycophant/interviewer Jamie Weinstein sit in chairs from that leather line at Ikea that looks pretty dope, but since they only cost like $150, you know they fall apart in about 6 months. Interviewer and interviewee are putting their red Solo cups on a pressed wood coffee table that we owned in college and there’s an American flag hung vertically in the background like it’s covering up a hole in the wall. What the fuck, Daily Caller? You couldn’t even spring for a mug for Adam Carolla? Or hey, Ikea has those plastic tumblers that are like $1 each. You could have picked up a couple of those when you got the chairs. Aren’t you guys all rich masters of the universe over there?
Listen, Daily Caller. We know you think you look daring and transgressive and cool, but all the actual humor sites on the internet are just pointing and mocking. Daily Caller/Adam Carolla, we’re not laughing with you, we’re laughing at you.
