Why the Secret Service Is Watching John Mulaney

John Mulaney can’t count the Secret Service as fans of his comedy.

The “Big Mouth” voice actor, 38, revealed on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” that the Secret Service investigated him following his February “Saturday Night Live” hosting gig. It seems the protective organization didn’t enjoy his Leap Year bit, which joked about bringing back a Julius Caesar-type murder.

“Leap Year began in the year 45 B.C. under Julius Caesar. This is true. He started the Leap Year in order to correct the calendar and we still do it to this day. Another thing that happened under Julius Caesar was he was such a powerful maniac that all the senators grabbed knives and they stabbed him to death. That’d be an interesting thing if we brought that back now,” Mulaney joked in his monologue. “I asked my lawyer if I could make that joke and he said, ‘Lemme call another lawyer.’ And that lawyer said yes.”

The joke prompted an investigation by President Donald Trump’s guards, which still tickles Mulaney to this day.

“I guess they opened a file on me because of the joke, and I have to say, am I stoked there’s a file open on me? Absolutely. Did I enjoy it in the moment? Not so much,” Mulaney said. “But the person vetting me was very understanding that the joke had nothing to do with Donald Trump. It was an elliptical reference to him. I didn’t say anything about him.”

The “John Mulaney & the Sack Lunch Bunch” star recalled his interviewer being very “nice” and ultimately “cleared” him of any wrongdoing.

“In terms of risk assessment, no one who’s ever looked at me thought I registered above a 1,” he joked.

    1. Make a vailed threat and get away with it saying it was a joke. He should know that there are some nuts out there that would try to act on it. The Democrats have promoted such hatred that anything can trigger an attack on the president and his supporters. Would a conservative have gotten away with this “ JOKE” not on your life.

      1. Are u serious???? trumpshmuck has been encouraging violence from day one, “lock her up!” for a political opponent. His history of fermenting violence, “beat them up”, I bail u out !” Come on, u can t be soooo naive or just a member of his cult who, shall “drink the kool-aid. Actually, u guys already , are, dying while he is languishing in his bunker for the last two months, trying to figure how he can “cancel” our very legal election. Wake up, trump cults

        1. Wow, Trump has been attacked by the progressives since before he was elected. Take your blinders off and listen to any leftist Demonrat and you will hear threats against him from day one. If you called this a Legal election you most likely don’t know what legal means. No doubt Trump won a legal election, but there are a bunch of high level conspirators in several states that need to be jailed.

        2. Jerome,
          Just exactly how ignorant are you?
          If you had any intellectual honesty you would see the assault on the President since before he was elected. If you can’t acknowledge that point you are officially the koolaid drinker.
          Tell me this, have you benefited financially over the past 4years before COVID?
          Ask yourself this. Why did every state in question halt their counting when the results were showing a Trump landslide?
          Why has the Dominion software used resulted in irregularities in other elections in other nations, always in favor of socialists, communists and globalists?
          None of us would have a problem with the results if the results appeared on the up and up. They clearly don’t!
          After all, we suffered 8 years with your precious “messiah” Obama and we “cultists” were and still are determined to NEVER make that mistake again.

        3. If it’s Obiden you voted for, and he gets in, you’re going to get what you deserve. And what kind of name is Jerome Shit?

      2. It’s absolutely amazing to me that there constant and consistent evil remarks from the liberal Democrats in our great nation. Especially from Hollywood Liberals like the ladies on the View, Robert Dinero, Barbara Streisand, I mean the list goes on and on! But it’s time we show them what we went through with their satanic disrespect for President Trump and make their lives miserable as hell from the day Biden gets inaugurated!!!!!

  1. You’re a very funny young man – you know what you did, however, and some day may find yourself in that elliptical orbit.

    1. The only violence has come from the left. So get that straight. Any rallies or marches by Trump supporters have been peaceful, unless of course, antifa showed up and committed violent acts. So knock off the crap. It’s always the leftists socialist Democratic supporters looting, burning cities and violently attacking conservatives.

      1. Liberals are experts at projection. If they accuse the other side of something it’s because they are guilty of it themselves.

      2. 73 Million Voters in USA voted for President Trump!! Stupid remarks on National TV that are Negative Nasty against our President means your name will be remembered and not in a positive way. Now 73 million people will be watching TV see your name and turn the TV off or change the channel. Guess Stupidity is your national Promoter.

  2. For all of the uneducated left wing socialist Democrats out there,
    Its a crime to make threats against the President.
    Its a crime to commit fraud during an election
    Its a crime to loot and burn down other peoples property
    Its a crime to assault anyone for any reason
    Its a crime to deface government property, i.e., statues or government buildings
    All of these crimes carry hefty prison sentences
    Its also a moral crime to help China, Russia and Iran turn our glorious republic of liberty and freedom into a socialist or communist prison camp of poverty, oppression and despair. These countries have injected millions of dollars into the destruction of America and you are helping them by your ignorance.

    1. YES INDEED These haters from the left will get what they deserve, They stealing this election and they know it.

  3. Isn’t it amazing just how ill-educated most celebrities are?

    They have no problem expressing their right to free speech, regardless if it’s illegal or not, but refuse to give you the right to express your opinion.

    We could only hope he gets prosecuted.

  4. Mullaney needs to be held accountable. Inciting violence is wrong – even when it is perpetrated by the left – who always seems to feel that they can do anything and claim immunity. The SNL platform is nothing more than an extension of the China-funded, US take-over, propaganda machine. None of the hacks on that show are funny. None of the hosts are credible or entertaining. It is not entertaining to incite violence against our president. I take this kind of threat very seriously and very personally. I liken it to shouting fire in a movie-theatre. Mullaney / Mulvaney (I don’t even know who he is; doesn’t warrant a second of my time), needs to be held accountable, as should SNL be.
