Asked by EW if he's a Trump fan, Allen says: "You know … it’s a very loaded question," adding: "Do I like him or agree with him? … I don’t know. Somebody got this NAFTA thing done. How did that happen? It’s like a slight of hand with this dude." Allen reiterates that his comedy, revived on Fox, "is not a political show. We talk about politics because everybody does. If you want to see me talk politics, come see me at The Mirage in Las Vegas, or any of the concerts that I do throughout the country. My politics are really irrelevant. What I do in my family, what I do in my neighborhood, that may be more of an indication of what I believe. But I wouldn’t want who say, 'I can’t stand Trump so I can’t watch this show.' Try to table that. It’s a sitcom that’s really clever where we work hard to make you laugh your a** off."
