Comedian George Lopez offered some vulgarity-ridden tirade Saturday night during his HBO special. He claimed Mitt Romney “ain’t going to get” the Latino vote because Romney “is a f—king Latino and he won’t admit it.”
Lopez also called the former Massachusetts governor a “puto,” a Spanish curse word word that translates literally as “male prostitute” but is commonly used in a derogatory manner to call someone an idiot, coward, traitor or worse.
Additionally, Lopez took aim at Romney’s Mormonism: “His father, his grandfather went to Mexico to create a Mormon colony. That don’t sit good with Mexicans when you want six wives to get twelve kids. F–king Latinos can have one wife and get twelve kids. Don’t f–king cheat.”
Lopez also had some colorful words for Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, “and while we’re at it Sheriff Joe in Arizona – f**k you you f**king puto. How about that? F**k you. You fat mother f**ker. F**k you. I said I was going to talk some s**t. F**k you Sheriff Joe you f**king puto. F**k you. F**k you.”
And, unsurprisingly, Lopez offered understanding condolences for President Obama, “Obama is the closest thing to a Latino that we have. Barack. Everybody wants to see his birth certificate too.”
Updated to reflect a more common translation of “puto.”
