Jeb Bush had a major foot-in-mouth blunder on his presidential campaign trail when asked about appealing to African American voters. He said, and this is not a joke, “Our message is one of hope and aspiration. It isn’t one of division and, ’Get in line!’ and, ’We’ll take care of you with free stuff!’
Yes, Mr. Bush literally suggested African Americans are attracted to a presidential candidate under the promise of “free stuff,” which is just another name for handouts. (Hey there, gross stereotype. It’s nice to meet you.)
Well, don’t think The Nightly Show host Larry Wilmore took these comments lightly. Nope. On Monday night’s episode, Larry addressed Jeb’s words and read the Republican presidential hopeful to filth. And it was absolutely everything.
Here are just two of Larry’s life-giving soundbites from his sermon:
Plus, Larry went in on Jeb for a statement he made in his 1996 book Profiles in Character that gay rights, black empowerment, and feminism are “modern victim movements.” (We can’t believe he actually wrote this shit!)
“In the 1950s, black people had meetings to try to be more victim-y?” Larry quipped. “People! We are not getting nearly segregated enough out there! How do we get the police to beat us more?”
Keep slaying, Larry. We’re in stitches.
