Wilmore slams ‘Fox News’ real-life Count Chocula’ for dissing Elizabeth Warren’s outfit
“Nightly Show” host Larry Wilmore was very excited to see Elizabeth Warren on Monday. He was so excited he pulled out his Warren 2016 hat and blowout in celebration. That is until Fox News commentators butted in.
“I have to comment on the Bobbsey twin outfits. This is not good. Men don’t have to do this,” said former Democratic pollster and Fox News commentator Pat Caddell with condescension. “Well, so, if they ran they’d have to have daily coordination.”
Wilmore wasn’t pleased. “Uh, I’m sorry, but does real-life Count Chocula get to weigh in on someone’s appearance?” he asked.
Wilmore began his segment crushing the most recent Benghazi findings that cost taxpayers $7 million to find no new information. Chairman Trey Gowdy told reporters at the press conference to read the report for themselves and draw their own conclusions.
“No, Trey Gowdy!” Wilmore exclaimed. “You draw my conclusions. That’s the whole point of having a committee. We didn’t spend two years and $7 million of taxpayer money for me to think! And now you want us to draw our own conclusions? Okay, fine. We at the ‘Nightly Show,’ we’re going to read this report. We’re going to read all 800 pages and we’re going to draw a conclusion for everybody.” Wilmore then declared he would put his top conclusion-makers on the task.
He moved on to talking about the Clinton and Warren rally in Ohio, and described Warren’s attacks on GOP nominee Donald Trump with one word: “Daaaaaamn!”
“Am I in a rain forest? Cause I’ve never seen so much shade!” Wilmore said of Warren’s attacks. “Someone get Trump some aloe for those burns!”
Many pundits commented on the two, claiming it is an unlikely pairing because Warren could upstage Clinton.
“You don’t want the No. 2 to outshine the No. 1,” Fox News’s Steve Doocy said.
“That’s right,” Wilmore said. “Another of Steve Doocy’s brilliant political insights that could double as bathroom metaphors. Good old douche!”
