About George Wallace

George Wallace has been in the comedy game just as long as any of the other greats, and there’s no sign of him stopping. He served up an extra helping of his “hot sauce” on Twitter over the past election season, really giving Donald Trump a taste of his own Twitter-trolling medicine. In a time when strong black voices are needed, George Wallace’s brutal honesty and quick wit are leading the charge. He’s taking matters into his own hands, sending #clapbacks to some of his 190K Twitter followers to keep the conversation going about what’s happening in this country to fellow black people, and all people alike.
