Larry Wilmore plans on going out with a bang.
On Monday's episode of "The Nightly Show," Wilmore took a moment to acknowledge Comedy Central's decision earlier that day to cancel his show, thanking his crew and the show's fans for their dedication. But then Wilmore got down to business. The comedian kicked off his show's final week of episodes with a scathing attack of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump's claim last week that President Barack Obama was the "founder of ISIS."
"I got to keep it 100 about this election," Wilmore said. "Donald Trump has stopped being funny. He has stopped being outrageous. He has stopped being politically correct. He's just downright dangerous."
While it is no secret that Wilmore is no fan of Trump, the comedian seemed to be speaking with an added sense of urgency Monday, using the final week of his platform to send a resounding message to viewers. Wilmore's monologue even included a call for viewers to vote for Hillary Clinton.
"The worst of it is [Trump is] just a liar. And I don't want to hear that 'Hillary Clinton is a liar too.' That is a false equivalency. Hillary Clinton is a very smart and capable politician who many people don't trust because she spends too much time lawyering her words so she doesn't lose votes instead of telling us what she actually thinks. Donald Trump is a psychopathic narcissist who not only has the hands of an infant, he has the mind of one," Wilmore continued. "Stop comparing the two. Donald Trump is an existential threat to America and if you love America like I do you have to hope that Hillary Clinton wins every single electoral vote this November."
Wilmore did some other house cleaning during the episode, bring on writers Mike Yard and Rory Albanese to discuss Wilmore's controversial use of the "N-word" with President Obama at the 2016 White House Correspondents Dinner in April. When the conversation touched on police brutality, Albanese took the opportunity to take a shot at Comedy Central for what they are giving up with "The Night Show."
"Those police shooting are an atrocity. I wish there was a late night comedy show on the air that dealt with things like that," Albanese joked. "That would be very cool. I might pitch that."
"That doesn't exist," Yard responded. "Apparently, too much of that s--- makes white people uncomfortable, just like the 'N-word.'"
Thursday will be the final episode of "The Nightly Show." Comedy Central's "@Midnight" will slide up a half hour to take its place.
