"What is This, To Catch a President?": Wilmore Mocks Jindal's Creepy Presidential Announcement (VIDEO)

Thursday night, Larry Wilmore took a slow news day out to catch up with the revolving door of GOP candidates. The latest entry, Bobby Jindal, in what appears to be an attempt to stand out from the crowd, made a "candid" announcement video of him breaking the news to his wife and kids. It played out as one part "To Catch a Predator" and one part deposition video.


It was truly strange, if not altogether unremarkable. Wilmore was even more disturbed by the Jindal children's total lack of enthusiasm at their father's announcement he was seeking the highest office in the land. After he told his kids, they just sort of sat there, shrugging. If even Bobby's own family isn't excited for his candidacy, then who will be?

Watch the bizarre clip below:
