During today’s hearing, the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee brought in sentient sunglasses display Bono to discuss what role foreign aid should play in stopping violent extremism. Instead, Bono recommended sending two powerful Jews and Chris Rock directly into ISIS’s clutches.

Alright, Bono. Let’s hear it:

And the first people that Adolf Hitler threw out of Germany were the Dadaists and surrealists. You speak violence. You speak their language. But you laugh at them when they’re goose-stepping down the street, and it takes away their power.

So I’m suggesting that the Senate send in Amy Schumer and Chris Rock and Sacha Baron Cohen. Thank you.

Do Amy Schumer, Chris Rock, and Sacha Baron Cohen have any fighting experience whatsoever? Do they even speak Arabic? How would ISIS understand their jokes? The entire proposition seems poorly thought-out.

Bono may want to send Hollywood’s funniest to “where the streets have no name” (ISIS-controlled Syria and Iraq). But me? I want to see them live.
