Larry Wilmore: Kim Davis Isn't Brave, She's Bullsh*t

After a two-week hiatus, Larry Wilmore is back and pulling no punches, going after Kentucky clerk-turned-Christian martyr Kim Davis. First he took on the stupid trend of praising people for "just speaking their minds."


"People are calling her brave because she's speaking her mind," the Nightly Show host said. "But if speaking her mind hurts other people, that's not brave, that's bullshit." 

After playing a video of Kim Davis being introduced by Mike Huckabee and walking on stage to a crowd of waving crosses, Wilmore looked on indignantly. "I don't know about you guys," Wilmore said, "but when I see a group of people in the South with white crosses, cheering to deny people's constitutional rights... it gives me a tingly lynch-y feeling."
