Ahead of his special, “Red State, Blue State,” set to premiere on Memorial Day, comedian Colin Quinn is proposing the United States breaks up.
CNN’s “New Day” aired a clip from Quinn’s special where he outlined that there are so many identities and societies that the country cannot be united anymore.
Friday, Quinn suggested the United States goes through a “divorce.”
“I think that sometimes you need a wake-up call and this country obviously — only the sickest people that love to fight are enjoying this country right now,” Quinn said on “New Day.” “Nobody can be – except if you like tension and fighting – that’s the only way you would enjoy living in this country.”
“It’s like a trial separation, like a divorce,” he explained. “You separate, break it up and see if we’re happier alone.”
