“I swear to God, I cannot believe people watch that channel. They’re so dumb. They’re f*cking treasonous un-American pieces of sh*t.”
The Madalorian star said that his mother-in-law turns on CNN when she comes to his house to watch his kids. “She always puts on CNN. And do you know what those f*cking morons are doing? Do you know what those f*cking morons are doing?! They’re f*cking talking about Trump.”
Burr torched the network’s obsession with former President Donald Trump-obsession and CNN’s refusal to criticize President Joe Biden because he’s a Democrat.
“It’s like, do you think these people give a f*ck who’s president? They want Darth Vader to come back. They want him to come back. Because they had nothing to talk about, because it’s show business, and Joe Biden is a f*cking bore.”
“They can’t b*tch about [Biden] because he’s wearing a blue tie,” Burr added, referring to Biden being a Democrat.
“So now what do they do? They’re going out there, they’re doing what they did the first time to get this guy [Trump] elected, by giving him all this free coverage, while they act like they allegedly don’t like him. I don’t buy it. I don’t buy it. They are a corporate news channel.”
In March, Burr was hit with a wave of social justice outrage after presenting the award for Best Tropical Latin Album at the Grammys premiere ceremony.

He said, “The Grammy goes to Natalia Lafourcade. I will accept on behalf of her. If I butchered her name, I’m sorry. Natalie, you won.”

Burr added, “feminists are like, going nuts. Why is this cis-white male doing all this Latino stuff.”
In 2018, Burr unapologetically slammed the left’s gender ideology on the Your Mom’s House podcast. Burr discussed the birth of his daughter and pushed back on the “small minority” of “fascist leftists who attempt to dictate our speech and shame those who don’t fall in line,” referencing those that would want him to let the child choose their own gender or push them to identify as a different gender.
“I would never do that to my kid. This kid has like a developing brain. I’m gonna dump my own constitution of sh*t on them? That is like adult stuff, and you should allow kids to be kids. Can they have a f*cking childhood? … I would never have some political agenda.”
When told gender is subjective, Burr responded, “I don’t agree with that. Good luck on how you want to raise your kid. I’m going to raise my kid the way I want to. Look, my daughter is a girl and if she wants to work on carburetors or do some guy sh*t, I don’t give a f*ck. I opened my mind. I listened to you. I don’t agree with what you’re saying. It’s my kid and I’ll raise her the way I want to.”
He added, “You’re not liberal anymore. You are a fascist liberal. But this is the thing though — they are a very small portion of the population who know where the pressure points are, and they go after the advertising money and then everybody caves in; everybody has to live off of money, so everybody gets afraid.”
“It’s a paper tiger and everybody is folding,” added Burr. “People are choosing self-preservation over logic.”
Burr’s Mandalorian co-star Gina Carano was famously “cancelled” by Disney, who caved to social media activists calling for her to be fired after the actress made several politically charged social media posts. Following Burr’s segment for the Grammy’s many on social media began calling for the comedian to be removed from the cast of The Mandalorian as well.
