Comedy superstar Kevin Hart is opening up about why he doesn’t see the value of trashing President Donald Trump.
“The way that I see it, my job as a comedian is to spread positivity. To make people laugh,” the highest-grossing comedian on the planet said in an interview with the Daily Beast. “And I don’t want to draw attention to what’s already pissing us as a people off.”
It’s a sentiment the What Now star first explained earlier this month in an interview with Variety, in which he said avoiding politically-charged comedy keeps him from “alienating” a portion of his audience.
“When you jump into that political realm you’re alienating some of your audience,” Hart said in May.
