Comedian George Lopez went on a vulgarity-laden rant during his HBO special Saturday night claiming presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney "ain't going to get" the Latino vote because he's "a f--king Latino and he won't admit it."
Lopez also had numerous f-bombs for Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio (video follows with transcript and commentary, serious vulgarity warning):
GEORGE LOPEZ: Mitt Romney wants the Latino vote. He ain't going to get it. He ain't going to get it. And you know why? Because Mitt Romney is a f--king Latino and he won't admit it. His father was born in Chihuahua, Mexico. Mitt Romney is a Chicano. But he won’t admit it. “I am not. I am Danish. I am French.”
If you want our vote puto, come out of the closet. Get a hair net and lean back and say ole…His father, his grandfather went to Mexico to create a Mormon colony. That don't sit good with Mexicans when you want six wives to get twelve kids. F--king Latinos can have one wife and get twelve kids. Don't f--king cheat.
For the record, "puto" is Spanish for male prostitute. In Mexico it's used for cowards and traitors.
Nice thing to call the presumptive Republican presidential candidate. But I digress:
LOPEZ: Obama is the closest thing to a Latino that we have. Barack. Everybody wants to see his birth certificate too.
Of course, nothing but kind words for America's so-called first Latino president. What would you expect?
From there, it was on to Arpaio:
LOPEZ: And while we’re at it Sheriff Joe in Arizona – f--k you you f--king puto. How about that? F--k you. You fat mother f--ker. F--k you. I said I was going to talk some s--t. F--k you Sheriff Joe you f--king puto. F--k you. F--k you.
And the audience ate it up like it was fine caviar.
This is what you get on HBO these days. And people pay for it.
It's a grave new world, isn't it?
