Skip to comments.Comedian on 'Today' Show Trashes Sarah Palin: She's 'Very Much Like Herpes'
Posted on 06/09/2009 12:02:16 PM PDT by Justaham
VH1 comedian Chuck Nice appeared on Tuesday's "Today" show and compared Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to the sexually transmitted disease herpes. He mocked, "But, Sarah Palin to the GOP, this is what I've got to say, she is very much like herpes, she's not going away."
The "Best Week Ever" host amazingly preceded his comments by instructing the show's hosts and his fellow guests, who were there to discuss news events in the 10am hour of the show, "...Please don't take it the way it sounds." Amazingly, no one on the program really challenged Nice on his ugly remark. NBC News chief legal analyst Dan Abrams mildly observed, "That's the advantage of being Chuck Nice. You can say that and there's no repercussions." Nia-Malika Henderson, the White House reporter for Politico, said nothing.
Defiant, Nice continued, "Everybody's laughing. I don't care. The band is cracking up." Anchors Hoda Kotb and Kathy Lee Gifford quickly moved onto other topics. Would such a comment about Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton have gone unquestioned on "Today?"

Please don’t take it the way it sounds it is much worse!!
Unbelievable. Pisses me off.
That's funny too isn't it Chuck?
Reminds me for some reason of the musical Cabaret - kind of funny in a 1930’s Berlin sort of way.
He probably knows more about herpes than he does about politics.
Please, as if.
The Today show was the incubator for the "newstainment " standard that dominates broadcast, and most print, journalism today. There's no such thing as professional, unbiased reporter, anywhere by anyone. They all have agendas and that agenda is almost exclusively leftist.
Comedy is hard. So is the skull of many of its practicianers...myself excluded,
These people are ruining it for themselves. America is tiring of them very quickly.
NBC News chief legal analyst Dan Abrams mildly observed, "That's the advantage of being Chuck Nice. You can say that and there's no repercussions."
No. He can get away with it because he is a) liberal, b) black.
Wonder if he thinks it is funny enough to say it to Mr. Palin...
AMAZINGLY? Yeah right. What would be amazing is if someone said the same about Obama and lasted more than an hour at their job.
This "media" is shameful.
Taxes are like herpes too, they never go away either.
NICE A$$ ping....
What is Sarah’s Husbands Name ?
In Texas, aggravated Assault is a misdemeanor and cost you about $200.00 to punch out someone who insulted your wife.
Sarah’s Husband needs to put a stop to this.....and I would put money on the Alaskan.
Nice is an occasional guest co-host on Morning Joe on MSNBC when Joe Scarborough is on vacation.
LOL. He probably does not only have herpes, but other STD’s as well.
