Okay, so, we talkedabout this earlier.

Last week Bill Clinton andAttorney General Loretta Lynch

met privately on the tarmacof the Phoenix airport

at the very same timethe Justice Department

was still investigatingHillary's private e-mail server.

And she was pretty muchexonerated today, pretty much.

Uh, but it still doesn't, uh...

still doesn't passthe smell test for some reason.

So I'm gonnaask you straight up:

is Bill Clinton tryingto sabotage his wife's chance

of becoming president?

-No. -No.-No?

No, I mean, think about

-everything we knowabout Bill Clinton. -Okay.

Would he purposely keep himself

away from the White House?

He's had... he's had

some of the best sexof his life...

-WILMORE: In the White House?-...in the White House.

-Wow. I neverthought of it like that. -Right.

I-I agree with that.You have guys...

I don't know if you rememberthe 1996 classic film

First Kid, starring Sinbad.

-It stars Sinbad as...-It-It's in my Netflix queue.

It stars Sinbadas a secret service agent

-who's stern but love...loves the first kid. -Right.

Bill Clintoncan be the first kid,

but he can be the first dude,so it's basically

the same movie,but with a lot more hand jobs.

-I'm just...-Wait. So, your theory is

because of those reasonsthat he's not (bleep) up?

I don't think...I don't think he's (bleep) up.

I think he went in thereand made sure

she wasn't gonnaget indicted today.

Like, that's what-that's whathappened. She...

He got on the... And he "talkedabout kids"

for a half hour in detail.

No one talks about kidsfor a half hour in detail.

-That's fair, that's fair.-Yeah.

Oh, oh, oh, oh.

Unless you're Jared Fogle.

Like, that's the only personthat has ever...

-talked about...-Ice cold, I love it.

-Have you met my mother?-Oh.

She's got a dogabout this big named Jakey

that she won'tshut the (bleep) up about.

I can see Bill Clinton...

You think he wouldstop a plane for Janky?

He didn't stop the plane.The plane...

Are you the residentconspiracy theorist?

I just want to know, because...

It was Fourth of July weekendand what's more American

than being lied toby the Clintons?

Like, come on, it's...

it's... that's what happens.

So, you're sayinghe did a-a patriotic act,

-is what he did. -Yes, this-this was for us.

Oh. I-Is there any chancethat he did...

Do you honestly think, okay,in your heart of hearts,

do you think he talkedto her about that

or do you thinkhe was telling the truth?

In my heart of hearts,I think he is more or less

telling the truth because I...be-because I don't trust him,

but I trust her. I haveno reason not to trust her.

Right, but why would heget on that plane?

It still doesn't make sense.

Why would he do that?

Exactly. That's the problem.

But that's the problem--it doesn't make sense.

She had-she had better snacks.

-I don't know.-Very possible.

-I-I could only imagine...-No, what I think is...

-Yeah, go ahead. -My honestanswer is I think has was

-trying to put on a charmoffensive... -What? That's...

with... But-but, but, but--

without directlytalking about the case.

-I think...-But that's tampering.

Sure, it's tampering,but in the...

but in the sweetestpossible way, Larry.

-Really? -Yes,in the charming big dog way

-that we enjoyfrom Bill Clinton. -But her...

her people must have known thatthis was not good and said,

"Oh, (bleep), Bill Clinton'sover coming here, what do we do?

-Don't let him on the plane!"-But is anybody ever surprised

when politiciansare politiciany?

Because I just feel like peop...They're always doing this.

We're always... We're notdoing... We're not polit...

I'm not a politician.Politicians are politicians.

Where the (bleep) was TSA?

-Great, great, yes.-Yeah. Yeah.

The Clintonsare always doing things

-that it's hard for usto understand and to, -Yes.

-you know, explain. Okay.-And sketchy as (bleep).

So-so, Clinton's, uh,closest aide, um, Huma Abedin,

uh, revealed that--and she had her own issues--

revealed that Hillary burnedher daily schedules when

-she was secretary of state.-What issues does she have?

She doesn't have any issues.You're gonna talk

-about her husband?-Well, yeah. Yeah...

That's not her issue.That's his issue.

She's burning her schedule.

She's-she's close to issues.

-Yes.-Okay? Right. Okay.

But Hillary burnedher daily schedules.

Who does that?

It-it is on her scheduleto burn her schedule.

It's like...

Do you know how corruptyou have to be as a person?!

All right,so-so Trump, of course, uh,

he did the thing... Can we showthe tweet, uh, from Trump?

He called herthe most corrupt candidate ever.

She was surrounded by money.Six-pointed star.

Okay, some peopleare calling him anti-Semitic.

Do you guys thinkTrump is anti-Semitic?

I-I was saying earlier,I don't think he has enough,

like, thought process going onto really be anti-Semitic.

-If he's anti-Se...-I think he's a lazy racist.

If he's anti-Semitic,he's the worst one.

She's not even Jewish.Like, he's just, like...

-Do you know that for a fact?-A-At lea...

at least put Bernie on it.Like, come on.

Like, he puta non-Jewish person...

It makes no sense!

He's not even good at it!

Do we know she's not Jewish?

Have you seen her (bleep)?Because I have not.

(groaning, laughter)

Thank you.

-I am Jewish.-Yeah.

Uh, and I would sayit doesn't matter

if he's an anti-Semite or not.

-It doesn't matter if he's aracist or not. -Doesn't matter.

-What he's doing is, uh,-Mm-hmm.

-he's-he's blowing the shofar,-Mm-hmm.

-which is the-the horn-I understand.

-that we Jews blow.We blow horns. -Correct, yeah.

-Right. -And he's assemblingthe Jew haters

-and assemblingthe white supremacists. -Mm-hmm.

-It's a dog whistle.-No, it's a marching band.

It's not a dog whistle. It is...it is the full orchestra.

-Mm-hmm. -He took the memeoff somebody else

-and just took the credit for itand it's not his. -Right.

-Once again, lazy racism.-Yes. -Mm-hmm.

You know? You can't...

-That's it. That's it.-Yeah, it's lazy.

What ever happenedto good, old-fashioned,

thinking-it-through...thinking-it-through racism?

-What ever happened to that?-It's like...

Whether or nothe's an anti-Semite or...

(stammering)to me, it-it doesn't matter.

-It's-it's your actions...-I-I have

to keep disagreeing with you.It does matter

-if you're an anti-Semite.-It doesn't, because...

No, it matters hugeif you're an anti-Semite

and you want to be presidentof the united states.

We've had presidentswho hated Jews.

Yes, but we don't wantto keep doing that.

Look, I'm not advocatingfor the guy. I'm...

Yes, you are!You were advocating...

I am a little bit.I am a little bit.

You're saying it doesn't matter.It matters huge.

I'm saying what he says,uh, is more important to me

than what's in his heart.Like, if I say, for example,

"I think black peopleare terrific,"

-I don't mean it, but I'm...-(groaning, laughter)

but I'm...

-Right. Yeah. -Oh, God. Oh,my God. Oh, God. -Was that...

-Right. No, no, no, no.-We got to go. Hide me.

All right.Michael Ian Negro, everybody.

We'll be right back.
