WATCH: Larry Wilmore on Josh Duggar Sex Scandal: 'I Hate Pedophiles, But I Love Irony'

Larry Wilmore dedicated a few minutes to discussing the sexual molestation scandal involving Josh Duggar, the former 19 Kids & Counting star and ex-head of the conservative, anti-LGBT Family Research Council Action group. Wilmore, after playing a brief news clip announcing that Duggar had molested five underage girls, made special note of the astounding hypocrisy the Duggars have been subjecting us to all these years:


“You mean to tell me the family that goes around saying gay and trans people are pedophiles preying on America’s young people actually has a pedophile that preyed on America’s young people?” Wilmore asked. “Wow. I hate pedophiles, but I love irony.”

Later, Wilmore chalked up Duggar's issue to simple math, describing Michelle Duggar thusly: “There was an old woman who lived in a shoe, she had so many children it was a statistical probability that at least one of them was a creepy sexual pervert.”
