Appearing on The Daily Beast podcast The Last Laugh following the release of his Netflix special Paper Tiger, Burr shared his opinions on everything from Trump’s chances of re-election to his disdain for outrage culture and politician correctness.
“What blew me away watching Trump do what he did, the things that he said in the past would take down somebody’s campaign,” Burr said, praising Trump’s staggering ability to withstand controversies that would end any conventional presidential campaign.
On the question of outrage culture, Burr argued that it is fueled by the media’s desperation to create controversy over issues that people don’t really care about it.
“And it’s not even necessarily because they believe in their cause, it’s just that where the money’s at is eyeballs and controversy and people arguing and being offended and watching somebody get in trouble makes people stop on your website or your TV channel and watch.”
As argued by Breitbart media critic John Nolte, Burr’s latest special was another victory for free speech as he explored topics including “male feminists, white women, cultural appropriation, the #MeToo movement, Steven Hawking, woke Hollywood, the cancel culture, and even Michelle Obama.”
