WATCH: Wilmore Nightly Show Panel Picks GOP Candidates' Secret Service Codenames
One of the most awkward parts of Wednesday night's already incredibly awkward debate was when moderator Jake Tapper asked the 11 GOP candidates what they wanted their Secret Service code names to be in the event they won the White House. A rather straight forward, whimsical question that led to a series of needlessly complex answers - most notably Rand Paul's "Justice Never Sleeps" which is less a code name and more a Robert Ludlum airport novel.
The Nightly Show, like most of America, was disappointed. But instead of snark they decided to help out, playing "New Secret Service Name" game where host Larry Wilmore held up a candidate and the panel, Rory Albanese, Joy-Ann Reid and Tom Papa, would decide what their name would be. It's a rather amusing bit and a nice distraction from a debate that was a depressing mix of xenophobia and political grandstanding.
