Comedian Tim Young poked fun at the politicization of the VMA awards on his latest episode of “No Things Considered” Monday.
Young first mocked Katy Perry — a pop star and fervent supporter of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — who hosted the VMAs Sunday. Young joked that the VM’s were, “bold to let a 54-year-old man host that show” due to her new feminist hairstyle.
Perry also referenced “The Handmaid’s Tale,” Margaret Atwood’s dystopian story about women oppressed by the government. Young stated that this must have been in reference to the Islamic Republic of Iran since this has “nothing to do with modern day America, women aren’t losing any rights last time I checked.”
One striking moment of the VMAs was when Robert Lee IV, a descent of Robert E. Lee, was brought to the stage to make remarks saying that, “we made my ancestor an idol of White supremacy, racism, and hate.”
Young questioned whether everything was going to be peaceful after the statues are removed.
