On Wednesday’s episode of The Daily Show, comedian Larry Wilmore examined how race may play into a potential match-up between President Barack Obama and former pizza chain CEO Herman Cain.

“Even if Herman Cain gets the nomination, it technically won’t be two black guys running because black people will decertify him,” Wilmore said, explaining that means Cain’s “black card” could be taken away. “And yes, it can be taken away, pizza man,” he quipped.
