Chris Rock warned American lawmakers on Sunday, cautioning that arresting former President Trump would only make him more popular.

The comedian made this comment while attending an event in Washington D.C. honoring Adam Sandler, where the room was filled with prominent political figures, including former Speaker Nancy Pelosi and representatives from President Biden's administration. Rock asked, "Are you guys really going to arrest Trump? Do you know this is only going to make him more popular? It's like arresting Tupac. He's just gonna sell more records. Are you stupid?" He then moved on to Trump's relationship with adult film star Stormy Daniels, quipping that "f---ing a porn star and paying someone off so his wife wouldn't find out - that's romantic."

This past weekend, Trump tweeted that he may be arrested by the New York City authorities on Tuesday and urged his supporters to protest and "take our country back" if the arrest occurs. Pelosi was one of the first to respond, tweeting that the former President's announcement was "reckless" and that he "cannot hide from his violations of the law, disrespect for our elections, and incitements to violence."

As Rock's comments demonstrate, arresting Trump would have the potential to make him even more popular among his supporters. While Pelosi has pointed out that the legal system will decide how to hold him accountable, the contentiousness of this situation is clear.
