Political comedian Tim Young mocked the recent surge in anti-Robert E. Lee sentiment spewing from Senate Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and ESPN on “No Things Considered” Wednesday.

Young tackled Pelosi’s anti-confederate statue stance, noting that her father dedicated a statue of Robert E. Lee to Baltimore, Md., and invited people to ask the senator if she will “disavow her dad,” during a No Things Considered episode featured on The Daily Caller’s Facebook page.

ESPN also decided to ban a sportscaster named Robert Lee from covering an upcoming game at the University of Virginia, due to the similarity of his name with the Confederate general, Robert E. Lee. Young mocked the college’s stance by seeing the name “Lee” as inherently a sign of white supremacy, saying, “While we are at it, Lee jeans should probably stop people named Robert from buying them.”

“No Things Considered” airs live every weeknight at 7:30 p.m. on the Daily Caller’s Facebook Page.
