Comedian Chris Rock jokingly warned lawmakers that arresting President Trump would make him more popular.

Rock made his joke at an event in DC that was honoring Actor Adam Sandler.

The event was attended by many high-profile actors and actresses and even included lawmakers such as Nancy Pelosi.

Rock started his statement by asking the crowd “Are you all really going to arrest Trump?”

He would continue “Do you know this is only going to make him more popular. It’s like arresting Tupac. He’s just gonna sell more records. Are you stupid?”

Watch the moment he said it here:

Fox News had these details to report:

Comedian Chris Rock warned U.S. lawmakers on Sunday that arresting former President Trump would only make him “more popular.”

Rock made the comments while in Washington, D.C., for an event honoring Adam Sandler. He began poking fun at the well-connected capital crowd, which included former Speaker Nancy Pelosi and members of President Biden’s administration.”Are you guys really going to arrest Trump?” Rock asked.

“Do you know this is only going to make him more popular. It’s like arresting Tupac. He’s just gonna sell more records. Are you stupid?” he said as the room laughed.

Here’s what the New York Post reported:

Chris Rock joked that former President Donald Trump was “romantic” for allegedly paying off porn star Stormy Daniels — while calling lawmakers “stupid” for wanting him arrested, warning it will only inflate his popularity.

The 58-year-old funnyman addressed the expected arrest as he helped honor Adam Sandler at the Mark Twain Prize late Sunday — directly addressing lawmakers in the audience, including Nancy Pelosi.

‘”Are you guys really going to arrest Trump?” Rock asked the crowd, according to the Daily Mail, which noted that several officials from the Biden administration were in the Kennedy Center crowd.

“Do you know this is only going to make him more popular. It’s like arresting Tupac” Shakur, he quipped of the late rapper.
