Judd Apatow Denounces Trump In Epic Stand Up Set: ‘I Feel Like I’ve Just Been Raped’

Judd Apatow became the target of outraged Trump supporters after he compared the election and presidency to sexual assault during his stand-up routine.

The writer-director-producer, known for popular comedies such as "Knocked Up," "Anchorman" and "Bridesmaids," performed at a stand-up show at the Regent Theater in Los Angeles on Saturday night to promote his new HBO series "Crashing."

Apatow spent most of his set tearing into President Trump and his family, saying that when Trump was elected, he felt like "a person about to get raped, but I didn't know how bad it would be," according to the >Daily Beast

.

"I feel like I've just been raped and I just don't know if I'm going to get murdered," Apatow added.

Apatow also took shots at Melania Trump for not living in the White House ("Every day she’s not in the White House is a day she’s not getting f---ed by Donald Trump").

The comedian also had a good theory about Trump's 10-year-old son Barron.

“You ever see the look on [Barron's] face when Trump’s talking?" Apatow said. "People are like, ‘Is there something wrong with him?’ No! He knows his dad’s a f---ing asshole!”

His comments were picked up and circulated by Brietbart News and Piers Morgan, sparking a storm of criticism from Trump supporters and advocates for rape victims.

Stunning and brave. https://t.co/ZAv66De8UW

“I feel like I’ve just been raped."Really? In the name of comedy at @POTUS Trump's expense, @JuddApatow marginalizes both rape/rape victims.

@BreitbartNews That's a pretty insensitive thing to say @JuddApatow. ..shame on you. Maybe an apology to actual rape victims???

.@JuddApatow, if you KNEW what rape "felt like," you'd feel a mix of shock & shame when they did the rape kit on you. From a rape survivor.
