George Lopez Leads Crowd in Anti-Donald Trump Chant

20 July 2015 12:18 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's safe to assume George Lopez will not be voting for Donald Trump. During his performance Saturday at the Phoenix Celebrity Theatre in Arizona, the Mexican-American comedian led the crowd in an expletive-filled chant slamming the presidential hopeful. Lopez himself called out Trump's name and then appeared to encourage his audience as they responded "F--k that p--o!" Before the cheering began, Lopez voiced his opposition to Trump's controversial comments about Mexican immigrants. (When the former Celebrity Apprentice host announced his bid for presidency on June 16, he claimed Mexico was "sending people that have lots of problems" to the United States, saying, "They're bringing »

George Lopez went on a full-scale attack in Arizona Saturday night, getting the audience to send a very loud message to Donald Trump ... "F*** that Puto." Lopez was clearly angered over Trump's comments about Mexicans, and the crowd roared with approval. It's interesting ... "Puto" is Spanish for male prostitute, and it's  considered homophobic by some. It didn't matter ... George, whom NBC is considering as a replacement for Trump on "Celebrity Apprentice," wanted to send the loudest message he could. »
