This Amy Poehler Q&A Is Funny But Also Disturbingly Accurate About The State Of Our Country

Filed under: PolitikAmy PoehlerQ&AFunnySocial Issues

This is America.

Amy Poehler took her moment of recognition to shine the light on some of the most serious issues facing our country – like gun violence, climate change, and the death toll in Puerto Rico. That, our friends, is how you use a platform!!

Instead of going on about her guilty pleasure or dream product endorsement, the 46-year-old comedian used her position as one of THR's "40 Most Powerful People in Comedy" to brilliantly get back to the unfortunate state of our country.

See the Q&A for yourself (below)!

My most memorable heckler… "Who cares? The whole world is on fire."

Dream product endorsement "A giant whale just died in Thailand after eating 80 plastic bags."

Guilty pleasure "Let's not forget over 4,600 people have died in Puerto Rico."

I'm funny because… "I don't even know anymore."

If I didn't work in comedy… "I would never leave my house."

College comedy audiences are… "Kids that are afraid they will be shot in their own schools. What has happened to us?"

Sitcom you'd reboot? "Mr. Rogers. I miss him. We need him."

The funniest thing about the Trump administration is… "Are you kidding me?"

Snaps!!! They don't call her one of the most powerful comedians for nothing!!

Amy Poehler Tells The NRA To 'Fuck Off' For Tweeting A Parks And Recreation GIF

Stick that in your rifle and smoke it, NRA.

The National Rifle Association is used to being hated by a good portion of the American population — but after the Parkland mass shooting, they've done pissed off Leslie Knope, too.

Following CNN's heated town hall on gun control on Wednesday night, the association tweeted a thank you to their spokesperson Dana Loesch for representing them, using a GIF of Amy Poehler's character from Parks and Recreation to do so.

That proved to be a big mistake, as those involved with creating the NBC show would not stand for the NRA using Leslie Knope to promote its agenda.

The tweet was such a misfire, in fact, it sparked a response from Leslie herself!

Michael Schur, creator of the sitcom, tweeted at the NRA demanding they take down the tweet — complete with a message from Poehler from beyond the Twitterverse:

Ovaries before brovaries, right??

On Tuesday, Amy Poehler reunited with her Parks and Recreation gal pals — including Kathryn Hahn, Rashida Jones, and Aubrey Plaza — for a special Galentine's Day celebration. The February 13 holiday was made famous thanks to the Poehler-led comedy, so it only seems right that she celebrated the day with her former costars.

Seth Meyers Gets Help From Surprise Guest Amy Poehler To Crush His 2018 Golden Globes Open!

Seth Meyers got it right!

He had a tricky wicket to navigate as host of the Golden Globes; the biggest story in Hollywood over the past few months was the various sexual misconduct scandals — not exactly the easiest subject to joke around about.

Thankfully the Late Night host got laughs not just about the wave of stories but also Donald Trump, Meryl Streep, and Oprah Winfrey.

His secret weapon? Doing his "Jokes Seth Can't Tell" bit in which special guests Jessica Chastain, Billy Eichner, Issa Rae, Hong Chau — oh, and Amy freakin' Poehler — delivered some of his punchlines!!

Ch-ch-check out the hilarious (and fairly non-problematic) success (above)!
