Larry Wilmore Rips Trump's Surrogates for Their Flimsy Efforts to Paint Trump as a Reasonable Guy
Larry Wilmore, host of "The Nightly Show,” doesn't know how much longer Trump's surrogates can continue to defend their candidate's inexcusable behavior. Following his feud with the Khan family, his reluctance to endorse top GOP officials and an interview that revealed his lack of basic geographical knowledge, Trump is already, almost unbelievably, having a tougher week.
"You don't need security clearance to know this sh*t," Wilmore told the audience, blasting Trump for not even knowing that Russia invaded Ukraine in early 2014. "You just need the newspaper—and not even a good one," Wilmore added.
“His media surrogates have a lot to explain, but they always manage to avoid actually explaining anything,” Wilmore said.
"The Nightly Show" edited a video montage of Trump’s surrogates desperately trying to shift the conversation away from the GOP candidate's disasters.
“See how they did that!” Wilmore exclaimed. “This is what happens when you drink the Trump Kool-Aid. It’s like if you’re in the position of having to defend Jeffrey Dahmer. It’s like, Did Jeffrey Dahmer eat those people? You’re asking me if it’s fair to judge people based on an eating disorder? I don’t think you want me to answer that."
