On Tuesday’s Nightly Show, Larry Wilmore resumed his continuing coverage of the presidential race, Blacklash 2016: The Unblackening. The GOP is still complaining about last week’s CNBC debate, and they met earlier this week to draft a list of demands for the next debate, which includes no lightning rounds, no hand raising, editing control of the graphics, temperature of the room at 67 degrees, and they don’t want to feel disrespected. “Then why did they go into politics?” asks Wilmore.
Wilmore says they are acting like a bunch of babies, but worse, because the National Council of Babies released a statement saying, “our diapers may be full of poopoo, but unlike the candidates trying to weasel out of tough debate questions, we are not.”
No one is filling their diapers more than Jeb Bush, who had dropped from third place in the polls, to fifth. In the video below, Wilmore brings out Jeb’s campaign advisor to talk about his new slogan, “Jeb can fix it”. “Unless you’re running to be super of my apartment building,” says Wilmore, “that slogan doesn’t make you qualified for the job.”
