11:34 pm
spring break world tour or something? he is like baseball game in cuba, clubbing in argentina, i mean what is next, beer bonging with merkel in germany? (applause) he is having a good time, you guys. okay, move on to our next story, richard nixon. now i have never known a dead man who gets himself in more [bleep] than richard nixon, you guys. i just want to say that for the record. check out the latest on tricky mcdick. >> forbs reports on a remark by a former nixon aide hinting that the war on drugs had a hidden purpose. that president nixon saw the descrug crackdown as a way to arrest blacks and antiwar protestors. ehrlichman also claimed the white house knew they were lying about drugs. >> larry: now, i know, i know, this may sound shocking to a lot of people out there but the to most black people, this confirms what they already suspected. to get thoughts on this and the
11:35 pm
black perspective let's go to mike yard for an edition of no [bleep] news. mike, mike? your thoughts on the nixon aide admission that the war on drugs was based on lies and really about oppressing black people. >> yeah, no [bleep] >> larry: okay. sounds about right, mike yard with a no [bleep] news, everybody. thanks, mike. (cheers and applause) mie favorite news, where i get all my news, you guys. shortest news program ever. now the nixon aide in question is the late john ehrlichman who admitted that the war on drugs was created in 1971 to silence nixon's greatest opposition group, ehrlichman said and i quote by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin and criminalizing both heavily we can disrupt those communities
11:36 pm
and vilify them night after night on the evening news. i know, now look, guys, i just got to say, i have to formally apologize to any conspiracy brothers whoever reports a conspiracy that i dismissed. including the moon landing at this point. yeah, which i just assume was produced by mar paramount, you're right, brothers, sorry, buzz, that was some good actingk okay. but look guys, this [bleep] is even worse than i imagined and it could explain why black people despite representing only 12% of our nation's drug users make up 59% of americans currently in prison for drug related offenses. well, that is before obama lets all the brothers out of prison on his last day. (cheers and applause) payback is a bitch! sorry. i had a black attack, i apologize. but seriously, if the man was able to pull off such an elaborate conspiracy just to keep the brothers down, than that must mean-- o.j. really
11:37 pm
didn't do it. (laughter) now seriously, i just find this just so, so-- detestable, the word you are seeking is detestable. >> exactly. hey, its joe martin,-- morton, everybody. joe morton. how is it going, joe? >> from scandal, of course. no one understands detestable government act better than papa pope, right? okay, so what would he say about the situation? >> well, he would address the people who needed proof that the war on drugs was a war on black people directly. >> larry: may i? >> by all means. >> thank you, larry.
11:38 pm
>> oh, yeah. >> now i would like to address america. you ignored what happened and you are ignoring what is happening. this dear, sweet america is what happened. nixon chose to keep black folks under control by arresting their leaders, raiding their homes and have i vilifying them night after night on the evening news. but you chose to watch reality tv eat fast food, screw your spouses or your battery operated products, and only think about the freedoms that your fellow americans did not have when it was convenient for you. >> yeah. >> if i were you, america, i would be afraid. very afraid. you are on the brink of giving your country a way to a man whose only interests are money and tv ratings. trump, he like nixon promises to make america great again. that's code for profiling muslim. raiding their homes and vilifying them night after night on the evening news.
11:39 pm
(cheers and applause) trump will get you and leave you whreed bleeding out of your wherever. that is the trump presidency versus america. maya angelou once said when someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time. (applause) we didn't believe it when it was nixon but today i'm telling you, america, believe it and stay woke. the american people need to get rid of this tiny, figured microdigitted rotting papaya face hate geyser vulgar vulgarian-- come hell or high water. because to be clear, if trump gets elected it's the american people who are the hell and the
11:40 pm
high water. >> larry: joe morton, ladies and gentlemen, laying it down, we'll be right back. oh, man. this is our lab. it's where we learn everything we know. where we study the athletic body... what it does... and what it's capable of doing...

(applause) guys, i want to ask you, i'm just going to cut right to the chase. don't you think this whole thing, come on, is a bit of an overreaction. >> no! i'm scared! i had no idea that i went to school with, with people who have different opinions than me. it is terrifying. >> yeah, look, i'm personally open minded. i will hear any idea on a political spectrum from liberal all the way to progressive. >> larry: okay, look, i understand not liking donald trump. >> oh, oh! trigger word, trigger word! >> larry: calm down, calm down, guys.

(applause). >> larry: i don't think we are agreeing to that. >> sorry, larry, got to go to another protest. somebody saw the word "slave" in a history book. >> larry: it's a history book. >> we'll be right back. >> we'll be right back. >> i don't agree. this is the all-new 20wow, it's nice.. let's check it out. do any of you have kids? i do yes. this car has a feature built in called teen driver technology, which lets parent's see how their teens are driving. oh, that's smart. it even mutes the radio until the seat belt is fastened.

11:54 pm

11:56 pm
