Yes. Thank you very much.
-Hey! -AUDIENCE (chanting):Larry! Larry! Larry!
Welcome to The Nightly Show. Thank you so much.
Please, please.You're too kind.
Thank you so much.I am Larry Wilmore.
Okay, thank you so much, guys.I appreciate it.
-(chanting stops) -That iswhat I call a Tuesday push.
Yeah. First thing's first,guys, first thing's first, okay?
I got to talk about, um,the House committee on Benghazi.
Remember them? This isthe Republican-led panel,
uh, which is gonna tell usexactly how Secretary Clinton
mishandled the Benghazi attack
and misled the American people.
Now, this reportis over 800 pages, so, please,
if you could justsum it up for me
and give meyour conclusions. Go.
I actually trust youto read the report for yourself
and draw your own conclusion.
You draw your own conclusion...
No, Trey Gowdy.
You draw my conclusions.
That's the whole pointof having a committee.
We didn't spend two yearsand seven million dollars
of taxpayer moneyfor me to think.
And now you want us to draw upour own concl... Okay, fine.
Here's what we're gonna do.We at The Nightly Show,
we're gonna read this report.We're gonna read all 800 pages
and we're gonna drawa conclusion for everybody,
-all right? We're just gonnado it. -(cheering, applause)
We're gonna do it, okay?
And here's whatwe're gonna do.
We're gonna put our topconclusion-drawer on this.
All right? Okay.Ricky, you got the report?
-I'm on it, dawg.-All right. Okay.
Thanks, dawg.I appreciate that. All right.
Ricky Velez, everybody.He's on it.
-(cheering, applause)-Now... We are on it.
Speaking of politics, you guys,there was a campaign event
in Ohio yesterday,
and the atmospherewas pretty electric.
We believe in that America.
We believein that America. Yes!
Oh, my God, Elizabeth Warren--is she running?
She just threw her hatin the ring? Yes, we can.
Hope and change.
Now, I'm here today
because I'm with her.
All right, she's with her.
Sorry, Hillary, but I don'tknow, you're just-you're just
not as excitingas Elizabeth, you know?
I mean, God, she just knowshow to get a crowd going, right?
Take a look at howWarren lays into Trump.
What kind of a man rootsfor people to lose their jobs?
A small, insecure money grubber.
A nasty man who will never
become presidentof the United States.
Am I in a rain forest?
Because I've neverseen so much shade.
Someone get Trumpsome aloe for those burns.
How he got burnedin the aforementioned shade
I'm not really sure. But...
don't worry about it.Anyway, so, here's the deal.
There's a lot of excitementabout seeing these two together.
And I wasn't the only onewho noticed
the unlikely Clinton-Warren duo.What did Fox have to say
about these twopolitical titans teaming up?
But I have to commentfirst of all on the...
on the-the coordinat... I mean,the Bobbsey Twin outfits.
This is not good.Men don't have to do this.
But, so, if they ran,they literally
would have to havedaily coordination...
Uh, I'm sorry,
but does real-life Count Chocula
get to weigh inon someone's appearance?
I don't, uh...
Actually, don'tworry about it, man.
Hillary and Elizabeth have beencoordinating their outfits
since they were kids.
"Come and play with us, Bernie."
Oh, you know what?Let's check in with Ricky
to see how that, uh,Benghazi report is going.
Uh... Yeah, I'm on it, dawg.Don't worry about it.
Uh, does "on it, dawg"mean you're actually gonna
read this report or not?
This (bleep) is wild, Larry.I don't understand it.
Did-did you know there's a placecalled Libya?
All right, just let me know whenyou have something, all right?
All right. Okay.
He's on it, dawgs.
Okay, anyhow,there's been speculation
that Elizabeth Warrenmight be Hillary's pick for VP,
uh, but a lot of punditsaren't feeling it.
Now, I don't think she'll pickElizabeth Warren. Here's why.
Because Elizabeth Warrenactually has the capability
to upstage Hillary Clinton.
Maybe she just doesn'twant to be upstaged.
And you don't want the numbertwo to outshine the number one.
That's right, you don'twant the number two
to outshine the number one.Another of Steve Doocy's
brilliant political insightsthat could double as
Good ol' Dooce. Good ol' Dooce.
But here's the thing--there is the danger
if you have someone aselectric as Elizabeth Warren--
does that create a problemfor Hillary Clinton?
All right. Well, for moreon Hillary's upstaging problem,
let's check in with Robin Thedefor Robin's Moment.
Happy to be here, Larry.
-Oh! That's nice.-Nice, very nice.
So, Robin, this isyour moment, okay?
Do you think Elizabeth Warrencould upstage Hillary Clinton?
Larry, Hillaryhas nothing to worry about.
Sure, Elizabeth Warrenwas awesome,
but the crowd was therefor Hillary.
It's her name on that ballot.
There is no wayshe can be upstaged.
You're right, Robin.
Elizabeth Warrenmight seem more exciting,
but this was stillHillary's moment.
Really good point, Holly.
Yeah, I mean, kind of weirdto have Holly
in Robin's Moment,but that's... that's fine.
Okay, so, anyway, Robin, uh,whatever it is you were saying.
Uh, okay,just because one person
has a magnetic personalitydoesn't mean they take away
-from the other person.They can al... -Exactly.
Or just because one personhas a magnetic personality
doesn't mean they take awayfrom the other person.
-(cheering, applause)-Yes. Yes. Man.
You are absolutely right, Holly.
I literally just saidthat exact same sentence.
Oh, okay.So you agree with Holly?
No! She agrees with me...Okay, you know what, it's fine.
The point is...I'm trying to make here
-is that all eyes are lockedon Hillary. -WILMORE: Right.
-She's about to become the most-She's about to become the most
-important woman in the world.-important person in the world.
-Why would you say...-WILMORE: Yes!
Holly, yes!Holly, are you killing it.
-Yes, yes, yes!-(cheering, applause)
-Agreed.-No. No! No!
-What? -Larry, I am beingcompletely upstaged here.
Robin, Robin, whoa. Think you'rebeing a little sensitive.
After all, this isHolly's Moment, you know?
What?! How the helldid that happen?
This is my moment.This is my moment!
-Holly, you're crushing it,girl. -I'm Robin!
Any... any words of advicefor, uh, Elizabeth Warren?
Oh, uh, yeah, Larry.
Uh, she should justtake Trump and just...
Snap! I agree. Well said.
-Holly's Moment, everybody.-Thank you.
Now I know how Hillary feels.
We'll be right back.Sorry, I can't hear you, Robin.
-♪ -(cheering, applause)
Hey, welcome back.
Well, summer is here,and time to jump into the pool.
But remember kids--safety is no accident.
So the Red Crosswhipped up some tips
to make swim time funin the sun for everyone.
The Red Cross is apologizingtonight after backlash
over what was supposedto be an educational poster.
Take a look. This postermaps out safety guidelines
for children with the terms"cool" and "not cool."
Backlash over an educationalposter about pool safety?
-(laughter) -People...people are so uptight, man.
I... Right?I mean, come on.
How could a safety posterpossibly make people upset?
MAN:Users on social media noticed
that many of the white childrenare labeled "cool,"
meaningthey're following the rules,
while a majorityof the darker-skinned children
are branded "not cool"for being rule breakers.
Folks onlineare calling this racist.
Me, too.What the (bleep), Red Cross!
-(applause and cheering)-What?!
All right, but I am like a mothto racism's flame, so...
I've got to take a closer lookat this.
Can we zoom in on that, Dre?
Okay, let's seewhat we've got here.
Uh, okay, "cool."
All right, white dad playingwith his baby in the water.
"Not cool"-- black girl shovinga white girl into the pool.
Uh, hey, Quaniecefrom the projects,
you leave sweet little Madisonalone, please.
-(laughter)-Uh, okay, what else?
"Cool"-- white girl standingat the diving board.
"Not cool"-- black boydiving off the diving board?
(laughter and groaning)
You know they put diving boardsat pools for diving, right?
What, is he diving too blackly?Good Lord!
Okay, then we've got a...
A "not cool" white boystrolling with a bottle.
Okay, that's fair.The glass could shatter.
Genuinely not cool.Oh, you know.
But you have to admit, that guylooks kind of cool really.
(laughter) -All right.I don't know.
Probably shouldn'tbe bringing beer, okay.
Okay, also "not cool"-- a blackboy being chased by a white boy?
Okay, even if they're bothin trouble for running,
let's keep it 100.
The arrow's closerto the black boy, right?
I'm not making that up, right?Okay.
And creepiest of all,a panicky-looking black boy
with his mouth opengasping for breath?
He's literally going,"I can't breathe!"
It's not coolto say "I can't breathe"?!
-Really?-(applause and cheering)
Oh, my God!
Who wrote that part-- the NYPD?
-(laughter)-All right, too far. All right.
Now the Red Cross pulledthe poster and apologized,
but for more on this,please welcome the artist
who did the poster himself--Claude De Jean Le Jeuxde Du.
(cheers and applause)
Larry, it's pronounced"Jeux Du." My name's Jeux Du.
-Okay, uh, you know, I'll justcall you Claude, okay? -Oh.
So, Claude,what are your thoughts
on people's reactionsto your painting?
I cannot controlthe emotion you feel. And I...
I create the world, huh?
The landscape for the childrento play in. That's it.
I do not tell them to misbehave,these little kids. It's not...
-It's their true nature comesthrough, that's all. -Well...
That sounds pretty racist to me!
What do... what you mean,"true nature"? You drew it!
And besides, I do not seethis thing you call "rahcism."
-(laughter)-I do not see.
Really, you don't see "rahcism"?
-(laughter)-No, of course not! I do not.
Look, if you do not believe me,look at,
-uh, the other paintingsI call... -All right.
...that I make.I make beautiful paint...
I call this one The Thief. Right here. The Thief.
But-but you made the thiefa black guy!
-No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no,no, no, no, no, no, no! -What?
-No, no, no, no, no.-(laughter)
This... this representsthe darkness in all of us, huh?
-Uh... -That's what our heart...in our hearts are.
This is the darknessthat motivates one to steal.
-This is not "rahcism."-(laughter)
This is about heartsof darkness.
-No. No, no, no, no.-That's it. No. That's it.
It's pretty clear that'sabout "rahcism," all right?
-Okay, let me show youanother one. -Okay, all right.
I call this one Paris Apartment. Hmm?
Okay. Oh.Oh, that one's kind of nice.
Wait, wait.Hold on a second.
Zoom in on that posterabove the bed.
"Segregation now,segregation forever"?!
So now... so nowyou are blaming me
for the way somebody decorateshis own apartment? Huh?!
I am a painter, Larry.I'm not, uh...
What do...? How do you say,one who decorates interior?
-An interior decorator!-Yes, I am not this person!
-Yes, you are!-I am not this person.
-You created that entire world!-I paint.
Look, so we... you and I willhave to agree to disagree,
okay, that you are wrong.
-That's a French expression.-(laughter)
-It's... sounds betterin French. -All right.
-Look...-Now let me show you one more
-of my paintings, huh?-Okay, fine.
This one is oneof my favorites.
All right. Okay, all right.
This one's actuallypretty reasonable.
-Just-just a bowl of fruit,right? -Mm-hmm.
Okay, what do you call it?
I call it I Do Not Like Black People. Huh?
-What the (bleep)!-(laughter)
-Yes. -What does that even mean?-(applause)
Now in, uh... In retrospect,this one's on me.
-This is my fault. This is...-Yes, that one is on you.
-I knew it. You are "rahcist."-Nah.
-Claude De Jean Le Jeuxde Du,everybody. -Jeux Du! Jeux Du!
-Jeuxde Du. We'll be right back.-(applause and cheering)
-(cheers and applause)-Welcome back.
I'm here with my panel.
First up, Nightly Show contributor Franchesca Ramsey.
(cheers and applause)
And Nightly Show contributor
-Jordan Carlos.-(cheers and applause)
And he's currently starringin Chicago on Broadway
and in the critically acclaimedCW show Jane the Virgin, singer
and actor Jaime Camil.
-Vroom. Boom.-(cheers and applause)
And for everyone at home,
join our conversation right nowon Twitter @NightlyShow
using the hashtag #Tonightly.
So, as we mentionedearlier in the show,
MassachusettsSenator Elizabeth Warren
has officially joined HillaryClinton on the campaign trail.
Check it out.
And Hillary Clinton
is the granddaughterof a factory worker
who's going to make it allthe way to the White House.
-(applause and cheering)-We believe in that America!
We believe in that America! Yes!
-Okay, simple question.-(laughter)
-CAMIL: Oh, good. She's runningfor president! -Yeah.
-That's what it seems like.-Yes, Elizabeth!
-No? -Simple question.When you see them together,
does this picture workfor Hillary?
I.... First of all, I think
there was a big mistake,Larry, by inviting me.
-Yes. -I think yourcasting people made a mistake.
Because, first of all, theytold me, like, a night show.
I was thinkingmore like light things,
-like carpool karaoke stuff.-Right.
-(laughter)-And they're like, "No, no.
-You're going to actually betalking about politics." -Yeah.
-I'm like, "Wait.But I'm not a citizen." -Yeah.
And I'm a resident, Mr. Trump,so don't get any crazy ideas.
-(laughter) -But then, and then,you know, talking about...
But I don't want my green cardto be revoked.
-I understand. -So my positionin this show will be
-that I love everybody inpolitics... -WILMORE: Everybody.
-...in this country.-(laughter) -Right.
-They're all great. -Yeah.-And the good thing--
-everybody in politicsloves you. -Thank you very much.
-WILMORE: That's not true.-And that's my cue.
-I-I agree. -RAMSEY:I'm a resident, so I can take
-a stand on this one.-WILMORE: Yes. -CARLOS: Right.
I'm gonna saythat it was a bad idea
-to have Elizabeth Warrengo first... -WILMORE: Really?
-...because she upstagesHillary. -CAMIL: Yeah.
-You know it's kind of like...-WILMORE: But even campaigning,
-though?-I absolutely think so.
Similar to, you know,
-maybe having Beyoncé openthe BET Awards. -(laughter)
Who wants to watch afteryou've seen Beyoncé crush it?
CAMIL:You're pretty much right.
So, like, Elizabeth Warrendoes an awesome job.
-WILMORE: Uh-huh.-And then,
you know, Hillary has to followthat, and I kind of think...
-Don't think that's fair.-I would say... I...
-To stay on the Beyoncé tip,um, I would say... -Yeah.
...they were bothquite in formation.
-I like that a lot.-(laughter)
They were both... they were,like... the matching outfits.
-You know what I mean?It was like... -WILMORE: Mm-hmm.
-Yeah. Yeah. -CAMIL:They use the same stylist.
So that's good.But Elizabeth, she's so...
she's so brilliant,I mean, she's so...
-Uh-huh. -Whenever she responds,when they get on her skin
and she respondsvia her social media,
-Right. -she's so brilliant,and-and her one-liners...
I mean, she could bewriting sketches for SNL.
But do you think it fixesher problem with the left
of the party,'cause that's where Hill...
-And the millennials, you know?-Mm-hmm.
Do you think that's a plus for her,
-to help bring those in?-I think it goes a long way.
I mean, the Democratic Partyis, like, right now
it's, like, a divorce, you know,between, like,
-the Bernie camp and Hillary.-They're going through divorce.
Yeah, they're goingthrough divorce, and, you know,
and Elizabeth is the childthat they share,
-you know what I'm saying?And, uh... -Yeah. -(laughter)
-trying to... tryingto make it right. -(cheering)
-Trying to make it right.-Wow!
-Yeah. -You know, she doesfavor, uh, Bernie a little bit.
Yeah, she does.She wears glasses.
-Yeah.-I'm just saying.
I don't know,I've seen a lot of people,
at least on my Facebook wall,
complaining about Warrenendorsing Hillary, because...
-WILMORE: Really?-because they feel
as if she has betrayed them.
People are like,"I'm so disappointed!
"Even thoughI don't actually know her
"and she's a politician andshe has to support the party!
-I'm disappointed!"-(whining): Yeah.
And it's just, like, getover it, you know what I mean?
Like, she just doesn't wantTrump in the White House.
I love the word "betrayed."
I know. It's like,girl, you don't know her!
-Like, she's not your friend.-Yeah.
-(whooping, applause)-I know.
WILMORE: Do you think that...do you think it'd be...
do you think it'd bea good choice if Hillary chose,
uh, Elizabeth Warrenas the vice president?
I do think so.Yeah, I think she's brilliant.
I think you haveto be surrounded,
when you're a politician,you have to be surrounded
by very, uh, intelligent andcapable professionals around you
to do, like, a great job, and Ithink Elizabeth Warren is that.
-Howsomever, we are in America.-Yeah. Oh, we are?
According to a CNN pollreleased last week,
when asked how Clinton choosinga woman as her running mate
would impact voters,a whopping 86% said
it would not make a difference.
Okay, is this poll bull (bleep)?
-(laughter) -I don't...I don't think it's bull (bleep).
Do people really careabout that still?
I-I guess they do, I mean,there's a poll...
What kind of a sexistis just like, "Okay, one woman.
-But two women?!"-(laughter)
-Yes. There are...-Exactly!
"If she dies, then she'llbe replaced by a woman!"
My head's gonna explode!
America is ready for only one.Not two.
RAMSEY: I don't know,I'm kind of of the mind
that polls in generalare bull (bleep).
Like, they called 200 people,and suddenly, like,
"This is what America thinks."It's, like, and that's
the 200 people that answeredtheir phone on that day.
Depending on what timethey answered the phone.
-That's true.-That's true.
If they answered the phoneat 3:00, it's, like, get a job.
-Yeah. -Why are you answeringyour phone? Exactly.
Any chance you thinkshe'd pick Bernie Sanders?
Would... do you think somethinglike that would happen?
Would that bean interesting ticket?
That would... that would...I'm gonna just pass.
-Now just, you, please...-WILMORE: You don't need to...
-No. -What you think, Jordan?Franchesca?
No one's gonna ruinyour green card.
-WILMORE: Bernie...-I love America
and being in this country.
-I don't know. Jordan, please.-Oh, my God!
-Look! Donald Trump's rightbehind you! -Oh, my dear...!
CARLOS:He's got a big net.
Do you think, uh...do you think he'd be up
-for something like that?-I think... No. No, no, no.
Because it would feellike too much of a betrayal
-to his... his people, his camp.-Yeah.
If... even if it did happen,I think, like,
Hillary would do, like,a bait-and-switch.
Like, he would get, like,some diplomatic position
-in Micronesia or somethinglike that. -Micronesia!
Or, like, Siberia,you know what I mean? Like...
Or maybe...or the question would be,
if Bernie would bewilling to be...
-if... if Bernie would say yes.-CARLOS: Right.
RAMSEY: I think...I don't think he would say yes.
I think it would make him looklike a sellout to his audience.
You can't talk a bunch of smackand then...
Well, unless, you know,you work for Donald Trump,
'cause his people talk (bleep)about him on Twitter,
-and then he hires them.-(laughter)
So, um... so maybethat would work out.
-Right. -But I thinkthat his supporters
-would be really disappointed.-Right. -Yeah.
WILMORE (laughs):Who do you think...
I saw that no one wantsto be Trump's vice president.
-That is hilarious.-(laughter)
-Who...-Well, that's-that's reality.
Who could he even pick?Is there anybody out there?
I... I think thathe should choose Omarosa.
-WILMORE: Omarosa?-Omarosa? -No, no.
Follow me for one second.
-WILMORE: Okay.-Omarosa is kind of like
-the black female Donald Trump,-Mm-hmm.
and they both also are too richto have such (bleep) hair.
-I'm gonna put it out there.-CARLOS: Wow!
His hair doesn't make s...Nothing makes sense.
-WILMORE: Nothing. Yeah.-I would say he...
like, if anything,he might pick Ivanka. You know?
-WILMORE: Really?-Yeah. I mean, you know...
-Why Ivanka?-he's like... Why Ivan...?
Come on, he's, like, you know,he's so... like...
-I mean, come on.-Say it. You want to say it.
-He... he really likes her.-You want to say it.
and he's like, you know,he'd be like,
"Ivanka's the best.Look at her. Beautiful Ivanka.
-You know, a great VP."-WILMORE: That's pretty good.
Yeah, yeah. The bestblack impression of Trump ever.
-(whooping, applause)-WILMORE: Yeah. I like it.
Okay. We'll be right back.
