- Comedy writer Ali-Asghar Abedi has cleverly pranked former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, Fox News host Tomi Lahren, former Trump aide and right-wing radio host Sebastian Gorka, and controversial Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio into thanking Satan for President Donald J. Trump – on camera.
- Lewandowski, Lahren, Gorka, and Arpaio were led to believe they were thanking someone named “Ebliz” for supporting Trump, but they were mistaken. “I spelled it ‘Ebliz’ and laid out the pronunciation as ‘ibb-lease” Abedi said. Iblis is a figure in the Quran that means “Satan.”
- “They’re grifters who are stunningly ignorant and have no curiosity,” Abed said. “I left clues for them. I told them that Iblis was Arab American. If they had a sense of the world beyond MAGA, they’d research what Iblis means in an Arab context. I guess they’re true adherents to capitalism, placing money ahead of their own dignity.”
