“I Didn’t Go to Law School, But I Don’t Believe Lawyers Do This;” Norm MacDonald Shreds Gloria Allred

No deep point to this post, except that I thoroughly enjoyed the sheer fail! of this video:
And honestly I have been really enjoying Norm’s new show. The premiere had me laughing harder than I had in months.
Exit question. Okay, what was going through her head with that whole reenactment? First, did it really have to be a two person affair? She couldn’t have done it wholly by herself?
And the “Justin” in that appears to be Justin Quinn, her client and the father of those two little girls. So isn’t that, potentially, sexual harassment of her client? Given that this guy has already decided to sue once for this kind of thing, is that so wise?
Plus, as MacDonald alluded to, doesn’t it kind of diminish the claim that these girls are forever scarred, or whatever Allred’s legal theory is, to then expose them to the same alleged trauma again? Hell, I think I am more traumatized by watching Gloria do it than I would have if I saw Roger McDowell do it live.
Anyway Gwenn Knapp writes more seriously about the whole thing, and gives some background information, but really I think the most appropriate reaction is closer to MacDonald’s: withering mockery.
