Maria Bamford, an obviously unhinged comic best known for talking about being bipolar and having a baby voice, decided she wants a restraining order against President Trump.
I, um… don’t get it.
Maria Bamford fears nuclear annihilation and wants a judge to rein in Donald Trump before it’s too late.
The comedian has filed legal docs asking a judge for a restraining order, claiming his incendiary comments about North Korea, Russia and the nuclear arms race poses such a danger it has caused her anxiety and depression.
She specifically cites Trump’s famous comment, “I too have a nuclear button and my button works.” She also references Trump’s perceived threat to Hillary Clinton when he talked about gun activists knowing how to deal with her.
She’s not asking the judge to muzzle Trump … she just wants him to stay 1,000 yards clear of her.
Wait… so the restraining order is supposed to keep Trump away from her?
Why would Trump be around her to begin with?
Does he even know she exists?
Obviously the distance between Bamford and Trump will not deter a confrontation with Putin or Kim Jong-un. Maria’s apparently taking advantage of the political climate to promote her upcoming comedy tour, which fires up Tuesday.
Bamford is a pretty huge stand-up comic — she’s appeared on everything from ‘Stephen Colbert’ to ‘Conan’ and “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
She’s also appeared in a ton of shows including “Arrested Development” and “Maron.”
Oooooh, so Maria is just looking for some publicity for her comedy tour by wasting a judge’s time.
So is this entirely a publicity move? Or is this woman TOTALY NUTS?
My money’s on a little bit of both.
Here’s Maria talking about her time in a psych ward (for reference)
I guess I feel a little bad for calling her totally nuts?
