WATCH: Larry Wilmore Defends Caitlyn Jenner and Transgender Women Against Mike Huckabee: 'Go Fuck Yourself'
Recently, presidential candidate and self-styled, radically unfunny "comedian" Mike Huckabee joked about wishing he were transgender so he could have used his gender identity to see naked girls in high school. Actually, here's what Huckabee said exactly:
“I wish someone had told me in high school that I could’ve felt like a woman when it came time to take showers in P.E. I’m pretty sure I would’ve found my feminine side and said, Coach, I think I’d rather shower with the girls today.”
Larry Wilmore, from the bully pulpit of his desk on The Nightly Show, first spent a few minutes giving praise to Caitlyn Jenner. He then took Huckabee to task for his transphobic and sexist remarks.
“What’s his book again? Oh, yeah: God, Guns, Grits and Gravy and Go Fuck Yourself.”
Wilmore proceeded to show a faux campaign commercial demonstrating how Huckabee’s words could be effectively used against him by a rival for the presidency. (He also promised the video would later go up on YouTube.) Check out the segment in its entirety:
