Maria Bamford is afraid that Donald Trump is going to start a nuclear war — so much so, in fact, that she’s filed a restraining order against him. TMZ reports that the stand-up comedian and “Lady Dynamite” star has “anxiety and depression” due to Trump’s comments about North Korea and wants him to stay 1,000 yards away from her (don’t we all?).
Bamford specifically cites Trump’s comment directed toward Kim Jong-un of North Korea that “I too have a nuclear button…and my button works” in the documents she’s filed with a judge. Bamford is launching on a stand-up tour tomorrow, and her legal action may or may not factor into the publicity for said tour.
IndieWire has reached out to Bamford for comment.
North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!
