'This Is Ridiculous': Larry Wilmore Tries Out Ben Carson's Dumb Rap Song

Unlike Trump, it's not quite clear if Ben Carson is in on the joke, but after releasing a campaign "rap song" Thursday to "win over African American" voters it appears he may be after all. 

Nightly Show host Larry Wilmore couldn't help himself. He put on his "rap listening gear" and gave Carson's new drop a spin. 

"I can't listen to this shit," Wilmore said. "This is ridiculous. Come on Carson, is it so hard to get the black vote? You're the black candidate—you're in danger of losing it now."

Carson recently dethroned Trump as the leading GOP candidate after 107 days of The Donald on top.
