Thank you very much.Thank you...
Thank you very much.
Welcome to The Nightly Show.
Very kind. Thank you.
Thank you so much.
I am Larry Wilmore.
I appreciate it. Thank you.
WOMAN:We love you, Larry!
I love you too, baby,I love you too.
Uh, now, last night... lastnight, so, we talked about uh,
the killing of Alton Sterlingat the hands of the police.
And before our show
even hit the air,there was another
brutal police killinggoing viral.
This time, uh,
the shooting of 32-year-oldPhilando Castile.
That's... that's how fast
these things are happeningsometimes here in 'Merica.
Um, by the timewe've gotten angry about one,
it's already old news.
But I'm still angry.
Um, and we should all be angry.
And we're gonna discuss thison our panel tonight.
So, please stick aroundfor that, all right?
We go from one abuse of powerto another.
I need to talk aboutwhat's going on at Fox News.
Uh, yesterday Gretchen Carlsonfiled a lawsuit
against bejowled Fox Newschairman, uh, Roger Ailes,
uh, after he fired herfrom her 2:00 p.m. hosting gig.
Anyway, Carlson claimsshe was fired
for refusingsexual advances from Ailes.
(audience hoots, groans)
Now, while I can't say for sureif the claims are true,
what I do know is that Carlsonwas fired
less than two weeks after saying
that she'd support a banon assault weapons.
All right? And I also knowthat when it happened,
we predicted she'd be let go.
By the way, Fox News employees,swing by Buffalo Wild Wings
tonight for Gretchen Carlson'sfarewell party.
AUDIENCE: Oh!(laughs, whoops)
I'm telling you,
there's no way Foxis keeping her after that, man.
That's right, Wilmorecalled that (bleep), man.
-(cheering, applause)-I called it. I called it.
Good job, Wilmore, good job.
But... But,if we're keeping it 100,
Gretchen Carlson's accusationsagainst Roger Ailes
are far too creepy to ignore,
which is why it's so upsettingthat he totally ignored them.
REPORTER: When she complained about his severe and pervasive
sexual harassment, she says he told her,
"I think you and I should have had a sexual relationship
a long time ago."
Now, right now,these are just accusations,
so we don't wantto jump to any conclusions.
It's just a classic caseof she said, it said. But...
That's all it is, but there'sgood news for the Fox CEO,
because tonight Roger Ailesis the recipient
of The Nightly Show' inaugural
Ain't Nobody SurprisedYou a Creepy-Ass (bleep) Award.
There we go.
So, I just want to say...Oh, my...
I just want to say congrats,you creepy-ass (bleep).
There you go.
Oh, oh, and by the way,
uh, we all know you did it.
