All right, Election 2016.

All right,this is a big election year.

Now, I hear you guys have gota chick running.

That's pretty cool, right?So let me ask you this,

should a brick house bein the White House?

I think a brick house is betterthan a (bleep) house.

-Um, and that's what we... Yeah.-Yeah.

And that's exactly what we gotwith George W. Bush, so...

I thought you were talkingabout that orange mother(bleep)

-that's running right now.-Oh.

-That, too. Him, too.Him, too. Yeah. -Do you think...

do you think this foxy mamahas a chance?

-Pardon me?-Do you think...

do you think, um...

do you think this foxy mama hasa chance to be the president?

-Sure, absolutely.Hillary Clinton, yes. -Yeah?

Absolutely.She has a-a very good chance

-to be the Democratic nominee,and... -You think so?

I'm the straight man here,aren't I?

I don't know, man. I got nothingagainst a foxy mama

telling me what to do. I thinkI said that earlier, right?

Uh, who's-who's got thebest chance of knocking her out?

Well, she has, uh,tough competition

from your-your old friend,uh, Bernie Sanders.

Yeah, that man's wild.I can't even tell you...

-Drink to that.-Do you think, uh...

do you think America's readyto be led by a female, though,

-right now?-I don't. I-I do.

I do think it's ready fora female but not that female.

-I think Hillary has a lotof baggage on her. -Yeah.

She has a lot of baggage.She's like if you were

to go adopt a dog andyou went to Mike Vick's house

to pick one up.Like, you don't...

-you don't...-I don't know what that means.

-Who-Who's Mike Vick?-It's gonna bite you

sooner or later!It's gonna bite you!

-It knows some (bleep).-Dog from a dog fighting ring.

-He's a football player?Oh, okay. -Football player.

I think definitely some peopleare opposed to her

because she has the toughesttr... uh, time with-with men.

-I mean, especially olderwhite men are the ones -Yeah.

that are most reluctantto vote for her.

Uh, Bernie Sanders,uh, is getting a lot

of young people though and,I think, a lot of progressives.

A lot of people think HillaryClinton is a little too, uh,

-moderate or even conservative.-Let me tell you,

Bernie's always gottenthose young chicks,

-you know what I'm saying? He'salways gotten them. -And I ca...

And I getwhere Hillary is coming from,

'cause I have a hard timewith older white men, too,

-so... Yeah. -There you go.All right, pass the bowl down.

-There you go.-Let's get another topic.

-Oh, that's amazing.-Pick a topic.

-What have we got here?-What you got?

-Swipe Buster.-Swipe Buster. All right.

Let's see what this is.Swipe Buster. All right.

Oh, okay, something calledTinder, right?

Swipe Buster's a new Web sitethat lets you find out

if your spouse is cheating

-on the dating app Tinder. -Mm-hmm.

Because according to a new study, 42% of people on Tinder

are either married or in a long-term relationship.

All right.

Okay, so I got three questions.

Number one--what the (bleep) is a Web site?


Mm-hmm. Right?

Number two--what the (bleep) is an app?

And number three-- doesn't this(bleep) sound like snitchin'?

Come on, newsman.

-It's...-It's definitely snitching.

-There's no question about that.-WILMORE: Right?

Although I have to say, anybodythat was looking to Tinder

for, you know, moral exemplars

is probably not in the rightplace to begin with.

-WILMORE: Yeah.-WALKER: You would actually

love itbecause it's about having

-kind of almost anonymous sex.-Uh-huh.

Like, you get on,you find someone

-that you kind of wantto hookup with. -Mm-hmm.

You're not necessarily seriousabout them.

WILMORE:Is it like closing your eyes,

just reach around and seewho you find on your waterbed?

-(laughter)-Yeah, something like that.

-WILMORE: That was... -WALKER:Something like that, yeah.

-It's the 2016of version of that. -Yeah.

All right. Okay.So is that snitchin' to you,

this whole thingthey're talking about?

Man, I... Yes, to a point,but at the same time, like,

if you got to go on Tinderto find out

if (bleep) good,(bleep) is not good.

-(laughter)-I like that.

-That's a good point.-WALKER: Agreed.

WILMORE: Let's just chooseone more. We're out of time,

but who gives a (bleep).Let's choose another one.

-$15 an hour minimum wage.-All right.

-(applause and cheering)-Yeah.

So, uh, $15 minimum wageis coming to California,

and New York, they say.

I think going from $2.50 to $15in one leap-- that's a big jump.

I'm just saying,that's a big jump, right?

Okay, so the question is,

should this be federal issueor a states issue like slavery?

What do you think?

-(laughter) -Chris Rock hasthe great line about, uh,

-about the...-WILMORE: Chris Rock?

Chris Rock isan African-American comedian.

-Oh, okay. -Very... He hostedthe Oscars this year.

-Oh, no (bleep).-Yeah.

-(laughter)-Oh, okay.

Damn, they still got the Oscars?


And he said that minimum wageis the concept for

when somebody says, I'm goingto pay you this amount

because anything less than thatwould be breaking the law.

WILMORE:Yeah. Right.

I'm paying you as littleas I can possibly pay you.

-Yeah. So $15. -It was funnierwhen he said it, by the way.

That's a lot.

Yeah, well, he's a comedian.

-You ain't a comedian,mother(bleep). -(laughter)

You saying it,it's a sentence, right?

Go ahead.

I think $15 is a lot. $15...In New York. Fif...

TAPPER:$30,000 a year?

-Come on, man.-WALKER: No, uh-uh. I...

You're gonna make someof my drug dealer friends

get a job at CVS.Like, this is (bleep) up.

-(laughter)-WILMORE: Say, $30,000,

you can buy two Corvettes.

-(laughter) -What?-WALKER: All I know...

You can' can't buy two Corvettes?

All I know is that if New Yorkis getting $15 minimum wage...


...somebody's getting a raiseat The Nightly Show. Yeah.

-WILMORE: All right.-(applause and cheering)

Well, I want to thank everybodyfor being part of my panel.
