On Thursday’s Lopez Tonight on TBS, during a segment featuring photographs of public figures wearing similar clothing called "Who Wore it Better?" comedian George Lopez cracked that Sarah Palin was "an evil egomaniac that might destroy the world" as an image of her was shown next to a picture of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il. Guest and fashion guru Tim Gunn took part in the segment as the two poked fun at Palin’s outfit supposedly resembling that of the communist despot.
Lopez joked, "For people who don’t know, one is an evil egomaniac that might destroy the world, and the other one is Kim Jong Il," inspiring Gunn to respond, "I love you for that."
Below is a transcript of the relevant portion of the Thursday, September 16, Lopez Tonight on TBS:
GEORGE LOPEZ: Let’s take a look at the next one. Who do you think wore this jacket-
TIM GUNN, FASHION GURU: Well.
LOPEZ: -Sarah Palin or Kim Jong Il?
GUNN: I vote for Kim Jong Il. And I fully suspect that Sarah Palin got that jacket when she was in North Korea going to the North Korean H&M. So, Kim Jong Il.
LOPEZ: For people who don’t know, one is an evil egomaniac that might destroy the world, and the other one is Kim Jong Il.
GUNN: I love you for that.
