tv The Nightly Show With Larry Wilmore Comedy Central August 2, 2016 2:09am-2:40am PDT
♪ (cheers and applause) >> larry: yeah, thank you very much! welcome to "the nightly show." whoo! (audience chanting larry) thank you very much! so kind. i appreciate it. i'm larry wilmore. all right. it's time for the democrats to give us their reason why they think that nice black family should leave the white house. (laughter) i know it. yup, it's time to see what's happening with the unblackening. ♪ (screaming)
>> larry: it always scares me. it always does. now, this country rarely agrees on anything, but i think we can all agree that last week's r.n.c. was a cluster (bleep). in fact, the convention was so bad that d.n.c. chairwoman debbie wasserman schultz tweeted to r.n.c. chair reince priebus during the convention, "hey, reince -- i'm in cleveland if you need another chair to help keep your convention in order." ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. well, that may have been a premature burn. >> d.n.c. chairwoman debbie wasserman schultz forced to step down after wikileaks released a trove of embarrassing private e-mails by d.n.c. executives. >> larry: looks like the burn-er has become the... one who got fired apparently.
run out of that joke analogy already. (laughter) so this already was starting out to be a night of awkward. and for a while, it lived up to the billing. baltimore mayor stephanie rawlings-blake forgot to bang the gavel, then you had this congresswoman's quasi-twin-the-shining sister who came on stage for a shout-out but wouldn't leave -- it's a shout-out! go on! get! then you had crying guy in a peter pan hat -- i mean, get over it. stop crying. you're a boy for the rest of your life. that's what you wanted, that's what you got. but then, finally, somebody comes out on stage and hits it out of the park. >> cory booker: king pointed to the mountain top, kennedy pointed to the moon -- from seneca falls to those who stood at stonewall inn, giants before us said in a chorus of conviction, america, we will rise ." >> larry: damn cory booker!
(laughter) you came out there swinging, quoting maya angelou, even pulling some church sweat dabbing. (laughter) (applause) and hillary >> and hillary clinton well y'all know it! >> larry: mm-hmm, that's right, mm-hmm! take 'em to church, cory! that's right, rise! we will rise! (laughter) i've got to take this off for a second. that brother's not "that" excited about hillary, he just wants to be president. i can see what's going on there. he figures going in there having his aught-four obama moment. (as cory booker) "i'm going to go out there, i'm going to kill it. i better hydrate, so i sweat properly. electrolytes, brother! this is how you become president! and the next day, i'm going to be the only one anyone's talking about!"
>> i michelle obama was spectacular. >> amazing. >> amazing. >> show stopping speech. just brought down the house. >> the moment of the night. >> larry: i'm sorry cory who? (laughter) oh, my god. michelle's speech was so overwhelmingly good, cory booker filed a police report claiming his thunder was stolen. (laughter) absolutely true. by the way... she didn't just steal his thunder, she pulled up in a van and straight-up jacked his thunder. >> i watch my daughters, two beautiful, intelligent black young women playing with their dogs on the white house lawn. and because of hillary clinton, my daughters and all our sons and daughters now take for granted that a woman can be president of the united states. >> larry: yeah, after that speech, a lot of people thought, that woman should be you!
(laughter) (applause) (cheering) all right. okay. sorry. apologize. for more on last night's speeches let's go to robin thede, who is live at convention headquarters in philadelphia. (cheers and applause) so, robin, what did you think about the lineup last night? >> first of all michelle looked amazing! it's not about that. it's about respect. the speech! the speech was so incredible. she gave me my whole (clap) entire life, larry! >> larry: your whole entire life? what do you mean? >> her words! her words brought people together. she reset the whole tone of this election, larry! in her own words, "they go low we go high!" ah! ah! (cheers and applause) she's a better speaker than barack, larry! they don't call her the closer for nothing! >> larry: okay, i get it.
you really liked michelle. but what about the other speakers like elizabeth warren? >> who? oh, the lady who went after michelle? she was cool, but she should have gone before michelle because my first lady brought it. why can't michelle run for president? is it too late? or is it too soon? because everyone would vote for her. >> larry: okay, robin. you're a little obsessed with michelle right now. luckily, we also sent franchesca to the convention. maybe she did some actual reporting. franchesca, are you there? >> yes! i was here the whole night. i was covering the cory booker speech. >> larry: oh, great. any observations about that? >> got it all on my phone larry... but i threw that once michelle started speaking! (cheering) she was (clap) amazing! >> wasn't she great?! >> yaaaas! when she said, "i wake up every day in a house that slaves built?..." >> i need to get a house that slaves built! (laughter)
amazing. >> larry: ladies! ladies, please! nobody's getting a house that slaves built! the speech is the only thing you remember from last night? it was great, but it wasn't life-changing. >> what did he just say? >> let it go, girl. like michelle says, "when he goes low we go high." >> girl, i'm-a get me a slave house. >> larry: robin thede and franchesca ramsey, everybody! nobody's getting a slave house! (cheers and applause) all right. so, anyhow, the night of michelle obama was all set up to showcase bernie sanders, who had the most awkward task of the evening -- to gently and inspirationally break up with his followers. >> i understand that many people here in this convention hall and around the country are disappointed based on her ideas
and her leadership, hillary clinton must become the next president of the united states! (cheers and applause) >> larry: of course they're crying! he's literally dumping them on national television! "look, you love me, i love you but we can't really date anymore... remember that person we hate? i want you to date her. so sanders supporters feel jilted, betrayed and even silenced. and to show their anger, many wore tape over their mouths during last night's speeches. since they felt their voices weren't heard we're giving one supporter a chance to speak tonight, please welcome jackie miller (cheers and applause) so jackie, what's your end game here? flipping delegates? shaping the platform? >> mmrr mrrr hrrrm! >> larry: fair point, but "undecided" voters watching the convention might think, "the
democrats are in chaos "-- >> mmrr mrrr hrrrm! mm hhr hrr. >> larry: okay. ted cruz did say "vote your conscience," and technically we do have more than two parties but -- >> (disagreeing) mmrr mrrr... >> larry: you're right -- false equivalency. ha ha. you got me! >> mm hhr hrr. mmrr hrrm! >> larry: wow, that's a very nuanced analysis of the effects of a compromised political discourse. you really broke it down. so where are you with bernie right now? >> eh. >> larry: oh, so you feel that the promises he made of a revolution in the political arena are undetermined by supporting a candidate who seems to be the antithesis of that? >> mmm hmm. >> larry: so what'd you think of michelle obama's speech? >> she (claps) changed (clap) my (clap) life! i'm gonna get me a slave house!! >> slave house! slave house! >> larry: nobody's getting a
slave house! jackie miller, everybody! we'll be right back. ♪ (cheers and applause) leinenkugel's summer shandy is the perfect balance of german-style weiss beer and natural lemonade flavor. crafted from six generations of family brewing tradition to make summer a little more refreshing. leinenkugel's. welcome to the leinie side. if you can't decide between an applebee's fresh summer salad, or savory wood-fire grilled chicken, we'll give you both for just $8.99. applebee's new wood fired grill salads starting at $8.99 for a limited time this summer. only at applebee's. introducing the newly designed dos equis can. but maybe you don't care about such things. you're wondering what happens next with the most interesting

it was intended to unify the party, but it felt more like his breakup speech. how do you think he did? with his peeps as they said in the e-mails. how do you think he did? does the party feel united or is it still -- >> it's going to get united. but it was really hard. looking at it, looked like bernie was giving the speech when you see the people crying. i was just, like, man we need to legalize more weed, man. people are too emotional right now. >> larry: they're in the throws of the breakup. >> you make up to break up. it's almost like he was saying, now i can no longer be with you. i want to turn you over now. turn us over to who man? go with her. that's what he was trying to do. it felt like a classic breakup machine. it's not me, it's the political
machine... which you hear a lot of. it was sad. >> i'm not convinced it did anything to unify things. >> larry: like breakup sex? >> stages to breakup. there is denial, anger bargaining. we saw a lot of that. he's like, you're going to like it over there with her and people are like, no, no, bernie! (laughter) >> i don't know if it's going to unify the party. i feel for the democrats this feels like going to the post office like you don't likely want to go, but you really have to if you want to get those zappos. so it's, like, ahhh! this is really difficult! and i hope they feet get it together. i'm scared. >> there is contention right now. that's what it is. that's what a convention is. it's not coronation. listen i love "frozen" as much as the next person, but it's
not -- (laughter) oh, i guess "frozen" is not a popular movie! (laughter) >> larry: not for a man in his 30s. >> i have a kid! (laughter) i'm not apologizing. >> larry: very fine movie. >> but you know what, though? >> at the end of the day he did endorse her. what i want the millennials to understand is he goes back to the senate and he really shook up the system, and whether or not he's going to have power when he gets back in the senate to really change things, and i want them to at least understand what. so he's not divorcing y'all all the way. >> he shook up the platform, is that what you're saying? he definitely informed the platform. >> he uber-ed it up. the cab dudes are getting mad man. (bleep). up in there with me, man. >> he druptd the whole thing. >> larry: what did you think when sarah silverman looked at
the bernie bros and said, you're being ridiculous. >> she handled it like a heckler, like a comic dude. shut it down... it worked in the moment but those people don't want to be told -- >> can't we just agree? >> i agree with her that they were being ridiculous. they even booed bernie. the guys in the corner are like hey queen, you have beautiful hair. and when i don't respond they're, like, nappy-headed bitch! is that how you speak to your queen?r) (applause) >> larry: you're just the queen! >> it's betrayal. >> that's so funny. >> larry: oh, my gosh. (laughter) now, the d.n.c. email hack revealed there was some questionable things going on. we talked to bernie. we had him on the show and i asked him months ago if he
thought things were rigged against him and he thought so. but the odds against conspiracy... can we show a couple of them? some of the things said, wanting to present bernie as an atheist or these type of things, does the hack really hurt the democratic party or do you think people will forget about this? >> man, this is how i look at it -- the football is deflated, you feel me? (laughter) >> larry: is this a patriots analogy now? >> yeah, it is. (laughter) okay we know, we slapped the hands and let's keep it moving because at the end of the day it's super bowl time, it's two teams and you're going to have to go with one. was it wrong? yes, but we have to move on because we're in the brink of an election and it's either we're going to choose hillary clinton you know what i mean, or spock. >> larry: there was a fighting practice and you're saying, yo,
we have to play a game. >> it's not all going to be good. politics is dirty. i ran for president of haiti y'all. >> lord, jesus! >> i'm just saying, this is light work here. (laughter) but all i could do, man is i'm telling you -- remember, i told you this on the show, more e-mails are coming, so you can't let that distract you. that's going to come, you know what i'm saying? the russians are doing the dance -- we gonna send more to donald trump. >> i was going to say they were doing the bogo dance but thank you, wyclef jean! >> larry: this will all be forgotten soon? >> it's politics. we have to move forward. a vote is emotional. that's what people have to understand. we have to move forward. it's going to be dirty. politics is dirty. we've seen dirty elections before, we've just never seen it on the reality show level. but definitely we have to move forward. i want people to understand,
this is probably the most crucial election in these united states of america. i really want the millennials to definitely get that. >> larry: okay, so just get ready to get dirty right? >> get ready to get dirty! >> dirty!
