With Justice Scalia’s pillow…
In recent years, whenever a violent tragedy has occurred, the left has been quick to blame the NRA, Republicans, the Tea Party, and conservatives.
Then they stand on a soap box and lecture everyone about civility and demand a new tone in our politics. It’ll be interesting to see if anyone on the left condemns Comedy Central host Larry Wilmore for suggesting he’d like to murder Donald Trump with Supreme Court Justice Scalia’s pillow.
Larry Wilmore ‘fantasizes’ about killing Donald Trump with Antonin Scalia’s pillow
Deadline Hollywood reports that while discussing Donald Trump on his show on Wednesday, “The Nightly Show” host Larry Wilmore shared a twisted fantasy about smothering Donald Trump with a pillow:
“Sorry everyone,” Wilmore said. “I don’t want to give him any more oxygen. That’s not a euphemism, by the way. I mean it literally. Somebody get me the pillow they used to kill [Supreme Court Justice Antonin] Scalia and I’ll do it — I’ll do it!” he said, then demonstrated. “I could get in trouble for that, actually!” Wilmore added, sheepishly, as the audience laughed.
Here’s the video:
Trump has repeatedly disavowed the David Duke flap but the left can’t give up on false accusations of racism which have served them so well for the last eight years.
One other thing to note is that very few people are listening to Larry Wilmore. Since taking over this Comedy Central slot from Stephen Colbert, viewership has dropped by over 50 percent.
Adweek recently reported:
The Colbert Report averaged 1.3 million total viewers in February 2014, according to Nielsen. A year later, Wilmore’s recently launched Nightly Show was holding a respectable average of 812,000 viewers. Moving forward another year to this month, Wilmore averaged 580,000 total viewers each night in the first week of February.
In other words, Wilmore’s audience is 55 percent lower than Colbert’s was in the same timeslot and 29 percent lower than Wilmore was attracting a year ago.
I wonder why no one is watching.
