Last night saw Batman actor Christian Bale thank Satan while accepting the Golden Globe award for "Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy" for playing Dick Cheney in Vice.
“Thank you to Satan for giving me inspiration for playing this role,” Bale quipped as his Hollywood cohorts laughed and applauded.
The comment did not go unnoticed by Dick Cheney's daughter, Liz Cheney, who posted on Twitter, "Satan probably inspired him to do this, too. Christian Bale arrested for 'assault on mother and sister.'" Liz Cheney included a link to an article from July 2008 that states Christian Bale was arrested and released on bail over an allegation of assault involving lashing out as his mother and daughter, which was hours following the European premiere of The Dark Knight. Bale denied the allegation.

Bale didn't stop with the Satan joke as he added he might take on the role of Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell next.
