Larry Wilmore is doing a pretty solid job of following Jon Stewart in Colbert's slot on The Nightly Show and Wilmore laid into the political media this week for worrying more about how Sen. Lindsey Graham's bachelor status would affect him as President than his completely awful foreign policy.
“Democracy works, just as long as we have a free press that doesn’t shy away from the important questions,” Wilmore said.
He showed a video clip Thursday on “The Nightly Show” of Fox News host Andrea Tantaros saying “one of the big questions being asked of Lindsey Graham is who would be his First Lady.”
“Why is that a question?” Wilmore said. “This is a dude who wants a war with Iran so bad he put it on his Amazon wish list. We’re asking him about his non-existent First Lady?”
Wilmore said Graham, the South Carolina Republican senator, had a creative solution to filling the role without a wife.
The GOP candidate told reporters he had a sister, so perhaps she could fill the role.
“Is Lindsey Graham trying to Duggar his way into the White House?” Wilmore said. “I’m guessing he’s got at least 19 votes and counting.”
Graham also said, chuckling, that he had lots of friends, so maybe there could be a “rotating First Lady.”
“Incest and orgies?” Wilmore said. “Bill Clinton’s probably thinking, ‘Wow, this guy’s taking it to the next level. I may not vote for Hillary at this point.’”
Wilmore is correct. Huckleberry Graham is the GOP candidate openly pushing for a huge American ground war in the Middle East. He's been absolutely wrong about everything remotely involved in the arena of international relations. On domestic issues, he's all about cutting Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, deporting DREAMers, and nationwide restrictions on abortion access.
The guy is a complete disaster even by 2016 GOP candidate standards, and we're worried about his marital status?
