RELATIONSHIPS, RIGHT?

I THINK THAT'S PRETTY GOOD.

SILVER LINING, SILVER LINING,RIGHT.

FERGUSON POLICE, YOU SHOULDPROBABLY UPDATE YOUR FACEBOOK

RELATIONSHIP STATUS WITH THEBLACK COMMUNITY, FROM "IT'S

COMPLICATED AND SUPER RACIAL" TO"THE FEDS HAD TO GET INVOLVED."

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )OKAY.

BUT THANKS FOR ALL THATRESEARCH, D.O.J.

WHAT ELSE DID YOU FIND?

THE POLICE USE OF CANINE UNITS,EXACERBATED TENSIONS."

>> Larry: OKAY.

SO LET ME SEE IF I UNDERSTANDTHIS.

THE D.O.J. SPENT TONS OF OURMONEY TO TELL ME THAT VICIOUS

ATTACK DOGS AND BLACK PEOPLE AREAN EXACERBATING COMBINATION.

( APPLAUSE )I JUST WANT TO-- I COULD HAVE

TOLD YOU GUYS THAT FOR HALF THEAMOUNT OF MONEY!

( LAUGHTER )IN FACT, I ALREADY TOLD YOU THIS

WHEN MY REPORT OF FERGUSON CAMEOUT MONTHS AGO.

I TOLD YOU THIS RIGHT HERE.

LARRY WILMORE-- LOOK, CHAPTERFOUR-- LET'S SEE.

( APPLAUSE )OH, HERE WE GO.

CHAPTER FOUR, "DOGSPEOPLE ARE AN EXACERBATING

COMBINATION."

I HAD IT RIGHT THERE.

I HAD IT RIGHT THERE THE WHOLETIME.

NO, SERIOUSLY, WE JUST WANT TOKNOW.

I COVERED THE WHOLE DOG-BLACKPEOPLE RELATIONSHIP EXTENSIVELY.

JUST SAYING I DID IT, OKAY?

ALL RIGHT, OKAY.

WHAT ELSE IS IN THE D.O.J. BOOKOF REVELATIONS?

>> THE REPORT SAYS OFFICERSWEARING DEFENSIVE AND TACTICAL

EQUIPMENT SHOULD BE, "STAGED OUTOF SIGHT," DURING PEACEFUL

DEMONSTRATIONS.

>> Larry: WAIT.

OKAY.

MOVING ON TO OUR NEXT STORY,EVER SINCE THE CHARLESTON CHURCH

SHOOTING THERE HAS BEENHEIGHTENED FOCUS ON NEWS COMING

OUT OF THE SOUTH, AND OFTENTIMESWHERE THERE'S SMOKE THERE'S

FIRE.

>> SIX PREDOMINANTLY BLACKCHURCHES HAVE BEEN DESTROYED BY

FIRE.

>> AS FOR THE OTHER CHURCHFIRES, SOME HAVE BEEN RULED

ARSON, BUT NOT NECESSARILY HATECRIMES, WHILE OTHERS ARE LIKELY

ACCIDENTAL.

>> Larry: OKAY, ALL RIGHT,WELL-- I MEAN, IT SEEMS UNCLEAR

IF THIS IS A HATE CRIME OR JUSTARSON OR ACCIDENTS OR SOME WEIRD

COSMIC COINCIDENCE, OR IFLIGHTNING JUST HATE BLACK

PEOPLE.

I DON'T KNOW.

WE JUST DON'T KNOW.

I DON'T KNOW.

SERIOUSLY, IT WOULD BEIRRESPONSIBLE OF THE "NIGHTLY

SHOW" TO SAY ANYTHING WITHOUTALL THE FACTS.

HERE TO HELP US IS FIRE TRUTHERSANTANA CRIMSEY.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )WELCOME-- WELCOME TO THE SHOW,

SANTANA.

>> THANKS FOR HAVING ME, LARRY.

>> Larry: OH, NO PROBLEM, NOPROBLEM.

WHERE ARE YOU RIGHT NOW?

>> I'M AT A FIRE DEPARTMENT INJACKSON, MISSISSIPPI, JUST

MAKING SURE THESE WHITEFIREFIGHTERS HOP TO IT AS SOON

AS THE NEXT BLACK CHURCH STARTSBURNING.

>> Larry: OKAY, ALL RIGHT.

OH, YOU EXPECT MORE?

>> COME ON, BROTHER.

WAKE UP.

OF COURSE, I EXPECT MORE.

THIS IS THE A WAVE OF HATECRIMES.

>> Larry: HOLD ON NOW,SANTANA.

I CAN UNDERSTAND WHY YOU'RECONCERNED BUT THE FACT IS SOME

OF THESE FIRES ARE NOT HATECRIMES.

THAT CHURCH IN FLORIDA LIKELYCAUGHT FIRE AFTER A TREE FELL ON

A POWER LEAN.

>> LARRY, THAT WAS AN OBVIOUSFALSE FLAG.

COME ON.

YOU DON'T THINK THERE'S A WHITEMAN DEVIOUS ENOUGH TO CUT DOWN A

TREE ON SOME POWER LINES?

COME ON, MAN!

WHITE FOLKS HAVE BEEN SECRETLYCHOPPING DOWN TREES SINCE GEORGE

WASHINGTON DID IT.

OPEN YOUR EYES!

>> Larry: I KNOW, ALL RIGHT.

>> WHERE YOU AT?

>> Larry: ANOTHER SANTANA, IKNOW.

WHAT ABOUT THE STATISTIC, A 2013STUDY FOUND 1780 FIRES OCCURRED

AT A VARIETY OF CHURCHES IN ONLYFOUR YEARS, AND ONLY 16%

INVOLVED ARSON.

SOME OF THESE BUILDINGS AREOLD AND FULL OF BAD WIRING.

>> LARRY, AGAIN, YOU'RE BEINGNAIVE, BROTHER. YOU DON'T THINK

THERE'S A WHITE MAN DEVIOUSENOUGH TO JOIN THE ELECTRICIANS

UNION AND FILL BLACK CHURCHESWITH FAULTY WIRING.

COME ON, MAN!

COME ON!

>> Larry: IT SOUND-->> LARRY, WHITE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN

FOOLING WITH ELECTRICITY SINCEBENJAMIN FRANKLIN.

>> THAT'S TRUE.

THAT PART OF IT IS TRUE.

I CAN'T MAKE BLANKET STATEMENTS.

IF I START MAKING RACIALACCUSATIONS THAT AREN'T TRUE,

PEOPLE MIGHT LOSE FAITH IN ME.

WHAT IF MY SHOW GOT CANCELED?

>> AND YOU DON'T THINK THERE'SSOMETHING SUSPICIOUS ABOUT THAT,

LARRY?

>> SUSPICIOUS ABOUT WHAT?

>> YOU DON'T THINK THERE'S AWHITE MAN OUT THERE DEVIOUS

ENOUGH TO WORK HIS WAY UP TO ATELEVISION STATION IN ORDER TO

GIVE YOU-- IN ORDER TO GIVE ABROTHER A LATE NIGHT SHOW SO HE

CAN CANCEL IT?

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )WHAT ARE YOU THINKING ABOUT?

IT'S A CONSPIRACY

COME ON MAN. "WE TRIED BLACKSHOWS, IT DIDN'T WORK OUT"

YOU KNOW HOW IT GOES.

>> Larry: NOW I AGREE WITHYOU!

WE MIGHT BE ABLE TO AGREE ONTHAT!

SANTANA CRIMSEY, EVERYBODY.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )>> Larry: WELCOME BACK.

NOW, AFTER EVERYTHING THATHAPPENED OVER THE PAST FEW

WEEKS, PRESIDENT OBAMA'SAPPROVAL RATINGS HAVE BEEN

CLIMBING LIKE A POWERFUL BLACKWOMAN TAKING DOWN A CONFEDERATE

FLAG.

( APPLAUSE ).

>> Larry: TRUE.

AND HE'S USING SOME OF THATPOLITICAL CAPITAL TO GIVE THE

PEOPLE SOME ACTUAL CAPITAL.

>> THE WHITE HOUSE IS SETTINGNEW OVERTIME RULES THAT WILL

RAISE THE PAY OF NEARLY FIVEMILLION AMERICANS.

>> THE RULE CHANGE WOULDINCREASE THE SALARY THRESHOLD

FOR THOSE WHO QUALIFY FOR TIMEAND A HALF TO JUST OVER $50,000.

CURRENTLY, THAT LAW APPLIES TOTHOSE MAKING JUST UNDER $24,000

ANNUALLY.

>> Larry: GUESS WHAT, 51K.

49K IS ABOUT TO KICK YOUR ASS.

( APPLAUSE )AND AS QUICKLY AS THE NEWS WAS

HERALDED FROM THE MARBLES HALLSOF THE WHITE HOUSE, IT SHOOK THE

GREASE-COVERED WALLS OF THEWHITE CASTLE.

>> JAMIE RICHARDSON FROM WHITECASTLE.

>> THEY LOVE THE FLEXIBILITY OFOF BEING ABLE TO WORK AS MANY

HOURS AS THEY LIKE.

THEY'RE THE HAMBURGER HEROS WHOMAKE IT POSSIBLE FOR US TO DO SO

MUCH IN OUR NEIGHBORHOODS.

>> Larry: HAMBURGER HEROES?

I KNOW HAMBURGERS CAN BE HELPERSAND BURGLARS, BUT I

THEY COULD BE HEROES.

I GET IT, FAST FOOD WORKERS AREAWESOME BUT YOU DON'T NEED TO

PROVE IT WITH CUTESY NAMES.

THAT'S NOT MY GARBAGE MAN.

THAT'S MY TRASH CHAMPION.

NO, NO, NO, HE'S NOT A PLUMBER.

HE'S A TOILET WARRIOR!

GUYS, THAT'S WHAT HE DOES.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )AND TO BE CLEAR HIS ARGUMENT IS

THAT WHITE CASTLE EMPLOYEES LOVEWORKING AT WHITE CASTLE SO MUCH

THAT THEY WANT THEIR FREEDOM TOWORK A 60-HOUR WEEK WITHOUT

BEING FAIRLY COMPENSATED.

THAT'S WHAT HE'S SAYING, RIGHT?

THEY'RE HEROES BECAUSE THEY'REALLOWING WHITE CAST TO TAKE

ADVANTAGE OF THEM.

THAT'S YOUR DEFINITION OF AHERO.

IF THAT'S A HERO, I GUESS THATMAKES YOU THE EVIL VILLAIN,

RIGHT?

WHAT?

WAIT FOR IT.

WAIT FOR IT.

BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT HE LAYS DOWNTHE NOT-SO-VEILED THREAT.

>> THIS WOULD COST US $8TO $12MILLION A YEAR IF WE DIDN'T MAKE

ANY ADJUSTMENTS.

>> YOU WOULD HAVE TO SCHEDULEACCORDINGLY.

>> WE WOULD HAVE TO MAKE TOUGHDECISIONS.

>> Larry: TOUGH DECISIONS?

A TOUGH DECISION IS WHEN YOUWRESTLE WITH WHETHER OR NOT TO

WEAR THAT HAMBURGER TIE.

CLEARLY, YOU CHOSE POORLY.

HAMBURGER TIE, FRENCH FRY CUFFLINKS -- ERRR!

RIGHT?

BY THE WAY, WHEN WAS THE LASTTIME THESE GOVERNMENT-MANDATED

OVERTIME REGULATIONS WEREIMPLEMENTED ANYWAY?

>> RIGHT NOW IT STANDS AT$23,000 A YEAR, A FIGURE SET

BACK IN 1970-- WELL, SOMEWHEREIN THE 1970s.

>> Larry: SOMEWHERE IN THE1970s, AND YOU'RE BITCHING

ABOUT THIS?

YOU, SIR, ARE NO BURGER KING.

( LAUGHTER )ALL RIGHT.

( APPLAUSE )YOU DO NOT-- LISTEN TO ME!

YOU DO NOT DESERVE TO LIVE INTHAT WHITE CASTLE.

YOU NEED TO LIVE IN A-- IN A--IN A SHACK.

WHAT KIND OF A SHACK?

UH... YOU'RE LUCKY THIS PUN ISELUDING ME RIGHT NOW.

( LAUGHTER )YOU KNOW WHAT'S FUNNY, I'VE

ACTUALLY TALKED ABOUT

THIS BEFORE.

I DON'T KNOW IF I TOLD YOU GUYSTHIS, BUT I HAD A PUBLIC ACCESS

SHOW BACK IN THE 70s.

I DON'T KNOW IF I BROUGHT IT UP.

I REMEMBER WE GOT INTO ALL THISOVERTIME BUSINESS.

BACK THEN IT WAS A BIG DEAL AND,YOU KNOW, I SAID A LOT OF STUFF.

BUT I THINK IT'S STILL VALIDTODAY.

UN, WE HAVE THE TAPE.

WHY DON'T WOE PLAY IT RIGHT NOW.

YOU HAVE TO TAKE A LOOK.

♪ ♪ALL RIGHT, DON KING IS GOING TO

COME OUT IN A SECOND TO GIVE MESOME HAIR TIPS BUT FIRST,

DO YOU ALL HEAR ABOUT THEOVERTIME REGULATIONS THEY'RE

PASSING IN D.C.

DID YOU HEAR ABOUT THAT?

CRIME IS A CONSTRUCT, OKAY.

EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT.

MY STAFF DON'T GET PAID( BLEEP ).

THIS IS WHAT I CALL A STARTEROPPORTUNITY.

( BLEEP ), IF YOU CAN'T GET AJOB AFTER THIS, SOMETHING WRONG

WHY DO YOU NEED TO GET PAID FORTHIS?

JUST COME LOVE WHAT YOU DO.

THAT'S WHAT I CALL FREEENTERPRISE.

YOUR ENTERPRISE IS FREE,( BLEEP ).

MONEY IS A DEMEANING WAY TOREWARD SOMEBODY.

YOU GOTTA REWARD THEM WITH SEX.

( LAUGHTER )THAT'S THE ONLY WAY PEOPLE AT

WORK KNOW THAT THEY'RE FAMILY.

PEOPLE SHIPMENT WORK MORE THAN45 MINUTES A DAY.

THAT'S ALL YOU NEED.

IF YOU CAN'T GET WHAT YOU NEEDOUT OF 45 MINUTES, YOU CAN GO

( BLEEP ) YOURSELF.

THAT'S THE FUTURE.

GET HIP TO THIS-- THREE-DAY WORKWEEKS, THREE DAYS. THAT'S

WHAT'S COMING.

IT WILL BE YOU WORK THREE DAYS,YOU SPEND THE OTHER FOUR MAKING

LOVE TO A FOXY ROBOT.

I WROTE A SYFY NOVEL ABOUT IT.

WE HAVE TO GO BACK TO AFRICANCURRENCY.

YOU KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT,RIGHT?

JUST USING ANIMAL SKULLS, THATKIND OF ( BLEEP ).

THAT'S MORE DURABLE.

YOU CAN KEEP A MONKEY SKULL FOR,LIKE, 1,000 YEARS.

I WROTE ANOTHER SCI-FI NOVELABOUT A THEME PARK WITH

DINOSAURS COMING TO LIFE,TIRANNASUARS,

YOU KNOW WHAT I'MTALKING ABOUT.

THEN THEY START RUNNING AMOK.

I MUST HAVE BEEN HIGH OFF MYASS, BECAUSE THAT IDEA WAS

GARBAGE.

THAT WAS TRASH.

ONCE THE WORLD FINDS OUT ABOUTHOW GOOD IT IS TO ( BLEEP ) A

FOXY ROBOT, PEOPLE AIN'T GONNAWANT TO WORK ANYMORE.

WHY WOULD YOU WORK IF YOU COULD( BLEEP ) A FOXY ROBOT.

IT'S TRUE.

I'M HERE WITH MY PANELJOINING US ONCE AGAIN KERRY

CODDETT.

AND FROM "THE YOUNG TURKS,"CENK UYGUR

AND HE'S THE STAR OF "THE JIMGAFFIGAN SHOW."

COMEDIAN AND ACTOR, JIMGAFFIGAN.

I REALLY WANTED TO DO THISTOPIC, MAYBE BECAUSE I'M

CATHOLIC SO I WANTED TO BRINGUP-- POPE FRANCIS, HE'S BEEN ALL

UP IN THE WORLD'S BUSINESSLATELY TALKING ABOUT GLOBAL

WARMING AND RECENTLY DIVORCE ANDSAME-SEX MARRIAGE.

IS THIS POPE THE ( BLEEP ) ORWHAT?

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )I DON'T KNOW.

YOU'RE CATHOLIC, RIGHT?

>> I'M CATHOLIC, BUT I'M VERYUNINFORMED.

BUT I WOULD SAY THAT-- I MEAN, ILIKE SOME OF HIS PROGRESSIVE

IDEAS, BUT I DON'T-- YOU KNOW,IS THE SEPARATION THING IS

INTERESTING, BUT I LIKE THE FACT--

>> HE SAID MARITAL COUPLES COULDSEPARATE.

>> HE DIDN'T SAY DIVORCE BECAUSEI'M MARRIED TO A SHIITE CATHOLIC

AND I LIKE THE FACT -->> A SHIITE CATHOLIC.

I DIDN'T KNOW YOU COULD BE ASHIITE CATHOLIC.

>> SHE CAN'T QUIT THE TEAM--WHEN YOU'RE CATHOLIC YOU CAN'T

QUIT THE TEAM, SO I DON'T WANTHIM TO GO TOO FAR.

>> Larry: DO YOU THINK THEPOPE IS PROBABLY ATTRACTING MORE

YOUNG PEOPLE USING THIS KIND OFLANGUAGE AND--

>> I THINK-- IT KIND OF IS, BUT,LIKE, TO A CERTAIN EXCEPT IT'S,

LIKE, ANOTHER I WANT TO PRAYWITH YOU, POPE, BUT, LIKE, WHAT

ARE YOUR PARTYING STYLES?

WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?

ARE YOU GOING TO LEGALIZE WEED?

LIKE, WHAT'S GOING ON.

>> Larry: THIS POPE MIGHT DOTHAT NEXT, WHO KNOWS.

NO, NO, NO, HOLD ON.

>> I'M SAYING -->> I'M GOING TO GET A LOT OF

TWEETS NOW BECAUSE OF THAT.

OH, MY GOD.

>> CYPRESS HILLS TELLS ME YOU'RESUPPOSED TO USE ALL THE HERBS IN

THE LAND.

IT'S IN THE BIBLE.

IT'S IN THE BIBLE.>> JESUS WAS STONED

>> ABSOLUTELY.

IT HAPPENED.

( APPLAUSE ).

>> Larry: GO AHEAD.

>> NO, I LOVE THE POPE.

I THINK THAT HE'S, YOU KNOW,MAKING CONSERVATIVE HEADS SPIN,

WHICH I LOVE. THEY'RE LIKE,RELIGION AND THE STATE

LET'S COMBINETHOSE TWO THINGS AND IT WILL BE

GREAT.

YOU CAN'T BE A GOOD CATHOLIC IFYOU'RE PRO-CHOICE.

NOW THE POPE SAYS WEAPONSMANUFACTURERS ARE EVIL AND CAN'T

BE GOOD CATHOLICS.>> THINK HE SAID CHRISTIAN.

>> CHRISTIANS, THAT'S RIGHT.

>> Larry: HE SAID YOU CAN'T BEA CHRISTIAN AND A GUN

MANUFACTURER, RIGHT?

>> I LOVE THAT>> WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? I DON'T

KNOW HOW HE WOULD ENFORCE THAT.

IS IT ONE OF THOSE THINGS ARETHE GUN MANUFACTURERS IS-- THAT

POPE GOT ME AGAIN.

I DON'T KNOW HOW THEY WOULDENFORCE IT.

>> BUT, YOU KNOW, I THINK THATTHE POPE IS-- HE IS A GOOD GUY

BUT, YOU KNOW-- YOU KNOW, ANDIT'S NOT LIKE HE'S SAYING

ANYTHING THAT CRAZY.

LIKE, CREATING WEAPONS THAT KILLPEOPLE OR --

>> ALTHOUGH WEAPONS HAVE ALSOPROTECTED PEOPLE.

WEAPONS HAVE SAVED CHRISTIANS,TOO.

THEY'VE DON'T BOTH.

>> WHAT I WANT TO KNOW IS WHATWOULD JESUS DO?

AFTER THE WAY THEY TREATED HIMTHE FIRST TIME, THE SECOND

COMING BETTER BE COMING BEARINGARMS.

THAT'S ALL I'M SAYING.

>> Larry: YOU THINK JESUSSHOULD BE PACKING.

>> I'M SAYING, LIKE,>> THIS TIME I'M NOT MESSING

AROUND.

>> Larry: I WONDER IF HE CANBREAK UP SOME OF THAT RELIGION

THAT'S CONNECTED TO POLITICS.

THAT'S A RECEIPT THING THAT'SHAPPENED WITH THE MORAL

MAJORITY, 1980.

DO YOU THINK THE POPE SAYINGTHINGS THAT PEOPLE NOW DISAGREE

WITH ON THE RIGHT CAN BREAK UPSOME OF THAT COALITION?

>> ALL MY LIFE THEY'VE BEENTELLING ME, "YOU HAVE TO BRING

CHURCH AND STATE TOGETHER ANDLISTEN TO MY CHURCH."

I'M NOT IN YOUR CHURCH, I DON'TKNOW WHY I HAVE TO LISTEN TO IT.

ALL OF A SUDDEN, THAT CHURCHAGREE AGREES WITH ME AND, BOY,

THEY'RE NOT HAPPY ABOUT THAT.NOW THEY'RE LIKE,

WE DIDN'T MEAN CHURCH ANDSTATE.

WE MEANT, YOU SEPARATE CHURCHAND STATE.

DO YOU REMEMBER DEADWOOD, THEYSPIT ON THEIR HAND-- YOU GOT A

DEAL, MAN.

LET'S SEPARATE CHURCH AND STATE.

>> Larry: I USE THAT FOR ALLOF MY REFERENCES.

I REALLY DO.

( LAUGHTER ).

>> IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT -->> IT'S SO CONVENIENT.

>> FROM A POLITICAL STANDPOINT,THOUGH, IT'S NOT AS IF WHAT

JESUS SAID WAS VERY CONSERVATIVEANYWAY.

>> RIGHT.

>> RIGHT?

HE WAS THE GUY WHO WAS, LIKE,HE'S PROPOSED-- IF YOU WANT TO

FOLLOW ME, GIVE UP EVERYTHINGAND FOLLOW ME.

AND PEOPLE WERE LIKE, ALL RIGHT,I'D RATHER NOT

( LAUGHTER )DO I HAVE TO GIVE UP EVERYTHING?

SO IT'S-- IT'S INTERESTING.

BECAUSE THERE'S-- YOU KNOW, IT'SNOT LIKE, YOU KNOW, THE POPE IS

THE FIRST POPE TO BE PROENVIRONMENTAL.

THE FIRST POPE TO BE OPEN TO THEIDEAS OF-- THE IDEAS OF

JESUS ARE NOT NECESSARILYLET'S HATE PEOPLE.

>> Larry: NO, BUT HE'S DOINGIT IN A DIFFERENT ENVIRONMENT.

LIKE THE RELIGIOUS RIGHTPOLITICALLY WERE SO HAPPY WHEN

EVERYONE ON THE RELIGIOUS SIDEWAS ON THEIR SIDE, YOU KNOW.

BUT NOW THAT IT'S THE OTHER WAYAROUND, IT'S THE POPE IS CRAZY.

ESPECIALLY ON CLIMATE CHANGE.

CLIMATE CHANGE-- JEB BUSH WASVERY CONCERNED WITH WHAT THE

POPE HAD TO SAY ABOUT CLIMATECHANGE.

>> WEREN'T THEY LIKE "LEAVE THESCIENCE TO THE SCIENTISTS?"

THE POPE HAS A DEGREE IN CHEMISTRY.

I DON'T KNOW IF THEY CHECKEDTHEIR FACTS ON THAT.

BUT I THINK HE'S QUALIFIED TOSPEAK ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE

>> THE SAD THING-- THE SAD THINGIS, LOOK, I LIKE THE POPE.

I'D LIKE TO SEE MORE OF THEPOPE.

I WANT TO SEE HIM AS A JUDGE IN"AMERICA'S GOT TALENT," BUT THE

THING IS, THE REALITY IS-- ANDHE CAME OUT TALKING ABOUT

CLIMATE CHANGE.

BUT, UNFORTUNATELY, IT'S NOTLIKE THE POPE CAME OUT AND SAID,

YOU KNOW, WE HAVE TO DEAL WITHCLIMATE CHANGE.

AND EVERYONE OF LIKE, "WELL, THEPOPE SAID, WE GOTTA DO IT."

NOTHING REALLY THAT MUCHHAPPENED, RIGHT?

>> THAT GOES EXACTLY TO THEPOINT YOU'RE MAKING, LARRY.

LOOK, THE REPUBLICANS TOOK--HIJACKED THE CHURCH FOR THEIR

OWN POLITICAL REASON.

>> Larry: CORRECT, THAT'S WHATI'M SAYING UPON.

>> REMEMBER, EVANGELICALCHRISTIANS USED TO BE ON JIMMY

CARTER'S SIDE, BECAUSE HE'SEVANGELICAL.

THEY GOT TO USE RELIGION FAIRWHILE.

AND THE GUYS WHO DID THAT--THERE ARE WHOLE BOOKS WRITTEN ON

IN-- THEY WEREN'T RELIGIOUS ATALL.

THEY WANTED TO USE RELIGION AS ATOOL TO GET MORE TAX CUTS AND

DEREGULATE SO THEY COULD POISONTHE EARTH AND MAKE AN EXTRA BUCK

DOING IT.

NOW THE POPE IS DRAWING LINESAYING, "NO, NO, I DON'T WANT

YOU TO POISON THE EARTH."

AND THEY'RE LIKE, "WHOA!

THAT'S NOT THE DEAL WE HAD."

I THOUGHT WE HAD A DEAL!

WHAT'S UP WITH THIS?

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK, RIGHT AFTERTHIS.
