So, on Tuesday, Donald Trumpoffered renewed support

for the use of torture.

Uh, go ahead, check it out.

They said, what do you thinkabout waterboarding?

I said, I like it a lot andI don't think it's tough enough.

(cheering, whooping)

Okay, I don't want to focuson the waterboarding.

I want to focuson the reaction that he got.

That scares mejust a little bit, okay?

-WALKER: Yeah.-So, who do you think

is going to benefit morein the national security,

fighting terrorism issue inthis election, Trump or Hillary?

-Okay, first, I am not surprised-Uh-huh.

-that Trump supports torture,-Right.

because... seriously, 'causeevery time he goes on television

and opens his mouth,it's (bleep) torture.

-Yeah.-Every time.

-(cheering, whooping, applause)-It is so true.

-Yeah. -I think it's peoplewho don't want to do the work,

-who are, like...-Really?

-Yeah, who don't want to...-You mean politicians?

No, no, no. I'm saying thepeople who are supporting him.

I mean, what we just heard,that loud noise,

was people like,"Yeah! I don't want to read!"


"I don't want to have a debate."

"I don't want to havea rational thought."

-Right, right, right. -You know?It's too hard for people.

Trump's that substitute teacherthat shows up,

and you thinkyou're not gonna do work.

GUERRERO:Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes!

-He puts on a movie. He's like,"Here you go." -Right.

-Watch these peoplekill each other. -But, uh...

I mean, at the same time, like,everybody going after...

I mean, Hillary wasour secretary of state.

-Yeah. -She had the job.She killed Osama.

-Mm-hmm.-She can assemble something.

Like ISIS.She can de-semble something.

Do you think she... do youthink people view her that way?

As a fighter?'Cause it's so funny,

the... electionscan be so shallow, too.

I mean, people here, they say,"Yeah, Trump fighter!"

And then they just,"Hillary, eh..."

-We've never seen Hillary fight.She don't fight. -Oh... What?!

-GUERRERO: She fights. -I viewher as a fighter absolutely.

She's had Benghazithrown her way,

she's had the e-mail scandalthrown her way,

even Monica Lewinskyhas been thrown her way,

-WILMORE: Wow. -and she isstill... she's still standing.

-(cheering, applause)-She is still standing.

-(applause and cheering)-No. She is.

She's still standing.

And that's who wantin your corner--

that shady bitchthat can't be knocked down.

-That's who you want.-(applause and cheering)

-Yes. Yes.-VELEZ: No, no, no, no, no, no.

-No, no. -Some who's fightingfor you, backing you up.

-Hillary.... -WILMORE: Are yousaying on the next ISIS event,

she's taking off her earring?

WALKER: Oh, yeah.Getting some Vaseline out!

-Like she's ready to go.-She's always ready to go.

-She has the pants suit.She's ready to go. -Exactly.

-You know what I'm saying?-That's exactly right.

-Hillary's that woman that...-Right.

Hillary's that womanthat goes ahead,

she doesn't like her mealat a restaurant.

She don't say (bleep),

but she goes homeand write a nasty Yelp review.

-That's, like, the type ofperson she is. -(Walker groans)

-She ain't being... Come on!-WILMORE: Mm-hmm.

-(laughter)-No. No. No... -Nothing.

I'm trying to think-- is thata slam on Hillary or Yelp?

-(laughter)-VELEZ: No, it's... it's not...

-WILMORE: Can't understand.-When was the last time

it was dealt with?Like, I mean, I-I...

-WILMORE: Well, let me ask youthis. -Do we see her fight?

-We never... -Well, if we keephaving these terror events,

do you think thenational security issue is going

to be the deciding issuein this election? Or is...?

I mean, 'cause I don't know ifthe economy is. If feels...

To me, it feels like both sidesare agreeing on the economy.

We're just kind ofthrowing shade on Obama.

WALKER: I don't thinkit's going to make

-a difference either way.I think... -WILMORE: Mm-hmm.

-...that Hillary supportersalready like Hillary. -Yeah?

I don't think anyone's gonna beswayed over to Trump.

I don't think Trump supportersare gonna be

-swayed over to Hillary's side.-GUERRERO: Yeah.

I think...

WILMORE: What about the peoplein the middle?

Do you thinkthose people are gonna be swayed

by that kind of talk?

I don't think so.I mean, I think

-it's about participationat this point. -Mm-hmm.

At this point, it's aboutgetting those people who are

like, "Well, I don't care.I don't like either of them,"

just to say,"Look, this is what we have.

-You need to make..." Like...-WILMORE: Yeah.

-"And you need to votefor Hillary." -WALKER: Yeah.

-Yeah. Yeah.-That's it.

-(cheers and applause)-Yeah. Exactly right.

That's it.This is what we have.

-WILMORE: Mm-hmm. -AndI cannot... I cannot believe

that, like, the majority of thepeople in this great nation...

-Mm-hmm. -...think like Trumpor like his supporters.

-Right. Right.-They're loud. They're loud.

-WALKER: They're loud. -Youknow, really? Really? The maj...

-WALKER: But it's not... Yeah.-Okay. Okay.

I don't know.I just saw Brexit happen, and...

I didn't thinkthat was going to happen.

VELEZ:I swear, I was on stage

about two weeks ago,and I had a joke.

I go,"I don't like to ask people

-who they vote for becausethat's rude." WILMORE: Uh-huh.

"So now I ask themif they're racist,

and I figure it out from there."


-(applause and cheering)-I swear to God. I swear to God.

And a guy jumped up, andhe goes, he goes, "(Bleep) you.

I'm voting for Trump, and mydaughter married a black guy."

And I was like, "Well, you don'tseem very happy about it."

-WILMORE: Yes. Exactly.-(laughter)

And then he goes...

He doesn't seem happyabout either one.

And then he goes, "Shut up!

I know seven black people."

I'm like, "You're not supposedto know how many you know."

-Like that's...-WILMORE: Yeah. Yeah.

That's the first rule of racism.

-Yeah.-Like, not knowing

-how many you know.-I know.

Trump's campaign-- it constantlyuses the fear of outsiders,

you know, to get people...How does that resonate,

-like, given your family story?-GUERRERO: Mm-hmm.

-You know, with youas a voter, how does that...?

Like, how does that feel

when you hear that kindof language being used?

Well, it just means I haveto work even harder, right?

-Mm-hmm. -I mean, the point isto change the culture,

to change the conversation

-in which we thinkabout an immigrant... -Right.

-...who an undocumentedperson is. Um... -Mm-hmm.

Your family was deported, right?

-That's right. That's right.-Right.

-Yes, when I was 14.-Mm-hmm.

And I stayed behind to...♪ Live out my dream.

-WILMORE: Mm-hmm.-Um, all good. I did it.

-I'm doing it. Still doing it.-Right. -(applause and cheering)

-Yeah.-Thank you.


-I... You know, it sets us back.-Right.

You know, it definitelymakes us work harder.

But this is whatwe're trying to do.

We're trying to get peopleto understand that we have

a problem in this country.

The immigration system is dated.We need immigration reform.

-Yeah. -And we needto get people on board

to even talk about the issue.Know that,

guess what. It's notcomprehensive. Guess what.

There's no back of the line,there's no right way,

there's no pathfor citizenship, right?

So I think the morewe talk about it is good.

It's fine. I'll do the work.I'm willing to do the work.

-Yeah. Are you...? -I wantpeople to do the work with me.

-(applause and cheering)-I agree. Um, are you, uh....?

Are you fearfulor hopeful at this point?

-Um, I think a little bitof both. -Little bit of both?

But I still haveto stay on the positive side.

-I'm a hopeful person, and...-Yeah.

And hopefully, we can makeenough noise,

and we just need participationfrom everybody.

-Everybody, everybody.-Amen. Amen.

-(cheers and applause)-Huh?

-I love you!-Go ahead.

-I love you!-But we're saying...

You said "make noise."Isn't that what Trump is doing?

-We have to be louder, kid!-WALKER: That's right. -But...

Is louder what we want?Like, is loud...? Because...

GUERRERO:Well, louder

with, like, rational thoughtand, like, good ideas.

You know what I'm saying?

-Just like that.-I understand.

-But what does America payattention to? -WILMORE: Yeah...

America's Funniest Videos is still on TV.

-(laughter)-WILMORE: But so is 60 Minutes.

-WALKER: Amen.-Yeah. Okay. All right.
