Judd Apatow Compares Trump Presidency To 'Rape'

Hollywood comedian Judd Apatow compared the election of President Donald Trump to being raped in a stand-up show that also saw him bashing Melania and Barron Trump.

The star producer of comic hits such as "Bridesmaids" and "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" made the rape comparison on Feb. 18 in Los Angeles.

According to the Daily Mail, the comic jokingly talked at the Regent Theater about his feelings over Trump being elected: "I [felt like] a person about to get raped, but I didn't know how bad it would be. 

One month into Trump's administration, Apatow stated on stage: "I feel like I've just been raped and I just don't know if I'm going to get murdered."

He later accused Melania of keeping away from the White House so that she wouldn't have to sleep with her husband. 

Apatow said of Melania: "Every day she's not in the White House is a day she’s not getting f****d by Donald Trump.  Wouldn’t you stay away?"

The star comic also said he wondered why Melania still hasn't moved into the White House.

"That's pretty bad. I mean, think about it: Hillary Clinton didn't move out of the White House and her husband got a blowjob in it."

He also mentioned that Barron appears publicly unengaged with audiences, Fox News reports. 

Apatow said: "You ever see the look on his face when Trump's talking? 

"People are like, "Is there something wrong with him?" No! He knows his dad's a f*****g a*****e!"

The comedian did not hesitate to lambaste Barron during his routine, despite the recent suspension of a "Saturday Night Live" writer over her negative comments about the 10-year-old. 

The producer presented the show while promoting his new HBO series "Crashing," The Daily Beast reports.

During the roast, Apatow said Trump only laughs after insulting someone.

"Laughter is how we connect, it's how you show people you love them," he said.

"[Trump] only laughs when he makes someone feel bad. What does he do to laugh, just go on YouTube and watch Special Olympics bloopers?"

Some Twitter observers called Apatow's routine a "slap in the face" and "completely humiliating to every victim of rape."

One Twitter user defended Barron by saying that comedians should not address children in their routines.
