applause] thank you thank you thank you. there it is. [chanting larry larry] very nice, thank you. exact same thing i say in the mirror every morning. wellal to the nightly show i'm larry wilmore. question. when you order starbucks how do you like it, grande, venti, double shot of awkward conversation. >> star buck's new campaign it's call race together. you get a cup of coffee and they write race together. they want their baristas to engage in their customers in this bigger conversation about race. >> hold on starbucks, you're talking about race. that's what we do on the nightly show. all right. you getting in my business i'm
getting in yours, all right. here, how do you like that. making some coffee right here. come on, coffee. [laughter] it's going to be there starbucks, all right. do you know what's happening right now, you're losing a dollar a second right now, right. looks like somebody's going to have to explain race and profit losses to their shareholders, all right. seriously, do we really expect some poor barista to handle a conversation on racial politics? that's a lot of pressure. who are they going to get, cornel west? [laughter] i mean no offense professor west, i know you can handle a delicate race conversation but i don't know if you can handle the delicate ins and outs of my quad grande non-fat extra hot carmel
upside down macchiato. which i just made, starbucks. turning now to our top story tonight. we've got to talk about that jesus jet. >> i took a blood sworn oath. this is atlanta based mega church in the firing line after urging its mechanics to fund a new gulfstream jet for its controversial leader, pastor creflo dollar. [laughter] >> a new jet, i don't know if i should be more shocked at a new jetter whose name is creflo dollar. i mean seriously. it just seems so on the nose you know. it would be like a serial killer was named jack knife. or a bank robber named philip z. bag. you come up with some with the
hashtag on the nose name. but lets get back to that jesus jet. >> project asking people to donate $300 or more. >> that jet dollar was seeking!yhl a gulfstream 60 which has a price tag of $65 million. bloomberg describes it as the holy grail of jets. [laughter] $65 million? for $65 million you could buy z jet. you would be overpaying for that too, mind you. [laughter] what exactly is the message creflo dollar wants to spread while careening through the skies in his private jet. >> dollar is famous for his so-called prawlsso-called prosperity gospel coming to those who do not donate to the church. >> so-called prawls parity
gospel. it seems like this message might be catching on but not everybody's a convert. take us to sunday school noted religious scholar. >> the protestant movement in north america is the movement referred toes at posterity gospel. the argument of the prosperity gospel if i can put it flippantly is;z8áthat jesus wants you to drive a bentley. >> that's right. i feel 9 power of the v8. i'm not talking about the drink. on the third day when something wasn't delivered, i ain't talking about that. get that devil out of here, here's what i'm talking about. [laughter] can i have an amen. >> amen. >> i said can i have an amen for a bentley. >> amen. >> can i get a rise because i wasn't able to make the payments for my bentley.
now look i know you're thinking bentley private planes. how much do these jetsetting profit mawrnlings make anyway. let's take a look. creflo is at the bottom of the list and it may be due to the fact he's only asking for money. some of these preachers work hard for the money. take it take it. take it. [laughter] wait. does he have a voice. take it, take it. that is the worst. i have never seen such horrible. [laughter]
i mean he's awesome he's awesome. oh myw) gosh. these guys are the modern day snakes. i wanted to talk to an expert so please welcome our lord and savior jesus christ. [crowd cheering] welcome to the show jesus. >> thank you. that's very nice. >> very symbolic, i don't want to lose that. >> yes. glad to be here larry, thank you. >> no problem. now jesus we've been talking about the prosperity gospel and these money-loving creatures like this one at lat alan atlanta luxury jets. i want your take on this. >> nice wine. >> we put water in there. >> i mean larry. >> i made coffee earlier.
not the same, not the same. all right. so what about these preachers. >> i don't pay attention to those guys. it's a big world larry, lots of stuff happening all over. oh, i'm sorry, that's me. >> i didn't know you texted. you must get some pretty important texts. >> that was on the syrian refugees. looks like they're still refuging. you were talking about a luxury jet, was it? >> yes. now these preachers who use their name to squeeze money out of poor people i think it's horrible. >> poor people larry or poor americans. oh, i'm sorry. i have a google list with poverty. did you know 850 million people are hungry or starving right now? >> i did not know that. >> let's focus on the poor people you're worried about, larry sorry. >> i wouldn't characterize it
like that. i was just trying to make a point. >> i do have this take this sorry. hello, dad. hi. you know i heard about the mud slide. how many areyv missing. oh jesus. i mean, oh me, what am i thinking. i'm on it. as soon as i'm done here. the nightly show with larry wilmore. wilmore. [laughter] no, not him. he left. he's taking over. i've got to go dad i'm sorry. i've got to go. i'm sorry, larry. >> does he know i'm taking over for john? don't go there. i thought i'd ask. you never know. [applause] i know you're busy but i just wanted to know are people like creflo dollar taking advantage of poor people. >> yes, of course they are. but don't worry me and pop well get them on the back end. >> i got you. that makes sense.
>> anything else larry while i'm here? >> what should we be doing about global warming. >> no no that one's on you guys. look, i'll give you a hint. ix-nay on abortions and gay marriage. i've got to roll. jesus out, good-bye. >> jesus, everybody.

welcome back to the show. joining us tonight iscomedian kurt metzger. the nightly show contributor shenaz treasury. we've got one of the parcels featured in the show preachers of detroit. that airs on oxygen fridays at 8:00 p.m. with parcel pastor david bullock. and the great actor starring in the new show time series happyish premiering on april 26th at 9:30 p.m. bradley whitford. a lot of the prosperity gospel is that the right term. >> sure, that's fine. >> i feel like they exploit the notion that people are giving their money directly to god. why does jesus need so much
money. is he like cash poor right now. another addition in heaven. >> he says in my father's house there are many rooms. i think there's plenty of room already. but if you look at these mega ministries, the only one who seems to be mega rich is the pastor that pass his family. >> exactly. go ahead, bradley. >> i want to disagree. what's his name. >> creflo dollar. >> creflo annuities discoveredthat. you know, once you've convinced your flocks that the son of god is a venture capitalists the sky's the limit. maybe god wanted to have a plane he could stand up in. maybe it's not enough.
>> it's disgusting. you're absolutely right. >> in the discussion of our finances at all. >> well if you believe it, god's the solution to everything. so yes. >> you went door to door. >> oh yes. it's dangerous, right. >> it is dangerous. >> nobody wants to talk to joe -- [laughter] but the people that get exploited to some degree they want to be exploited. people one to see their preacher have all this stuff this kind of aspiration. that means god's blessing him. real jesus who is this ratchet jesus. they wouldn't go with that. >> am i the hater here? is it a liquid pro quo quid pro quo if people are happy. >> if people were happy. i went to a temple of rats.
people worship rats. >> it's like our subway system. >> what's the difference between the pastors and the rats. >> if you tell them -- >> the pass ter has a pastor has a jet. >> don't let pastors off the hook. i understand what you're saying. when people are desperate, you know, they'll take anything. >> when you go into a poor community or telling a poor person look you don't have to work right you don't have to read, you don't have to study you don't have to have a plan. all you got to do is bring all your money to church on sunday and god's going to do it all for you. i mean that message is attractive to somebody who has been down so long. >> yes sure. >> and preachers ought to be held accountable for telling lies. >> how can they? can the government --
[applause] should the government be involved in this. >> making all this money, should we chain the2should greed be treated like weed. >> absolutely. in india the holy men, they fully offer the nations to smoke bode. so weed, they do. >> where are you from exactly? >> go ahead. >> how did these guys get around, you know they seem to have an idea you know like jesus was a big supply side guide instead of the guy throwing the money lenders out of the temple. like somebody walking through betbethlehem saying don't help the lepers you're going to make them crazy. >> the bottom line is this is ludicrous, it's insulting. at some point these mega churches are going to come down and people will open their eyes
and we should not help the poor so we could have a private jet that doesn't benefit the congregation or the city. jesus said i was hundred hungry comehungry -- hungary come hungry come feed me. i bring the gift of the name your price tool to help you find a price that fits your budget. uh-oh. the name your price tool. she's not to be trusted. kill her. flo: it will save you money! the name your price tool isn't witchcraft! and i didn't turn your daughter into a rooster. she just looks like that. burn the witch! the name your price tool a dangerously progressive idea. ted's morning was not going well, and when his battery light lit up - it went from bad to worse. but a quick pit stop to autozone -
