Bono said Amy Schumer and Chris Rock should be sent to fight ISIS, and Ireland is cringing

What…. Why… Never mind.

BONO HAS COME up with a novel way for the world to fight ISIS – not with guns, but with laughter.

Yesterday, the U2 frontman went to Capitol Hill to call on the Senate to deal with the global refugee crisis and violent extremism.

There, he suggested that comedians should be dispatched to the Middle East to fight ISIS with laughs:

I think comedy should be deployed. It’s like, you speak violence, you speak their language. But you laugh at them, when they’re goose-stepping down the street, and it takes away their power.

“So, I’m suggesting that the Senate send in Amy Schumer, Chris Rock and Sacha Baron Cohen, thank you,” he continued.

He was probably saying all this with tongue firmly in cheek, but that hasn’t stopped everyone back home thinking “Paul, shhhhh”:

Even Amy Schumer is like, “Maybe not”.

Rock and Baron Cohen have yet to confirm that they’re on board. We’re going to take their silence as a yes.
