Larry Wilmore took a look at the leaked video of Hillary Clinton meeting with Black Lives Matter activists, joined for this segment by The Nightly Show contributor Holly Walker and Clinton campaign “official” Carlos Jordanson.

Larry also sat down with two of those same Black Lives Matter activists, Daunasia Yancey and Julius Jones, and asked them: “People have talked a lot about your methods of disruption — that’s the word that’s being used out there.

In December 2019, when then-President Donald Trump was facing his first of two impeachments, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie launched the nonprofit Right Direction America to defend him. The 2022 campaign of far-right Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida, a hardcore Trumpista, donated $100,000 to the nonprofit earlier this year during Trump's second impeachment — and journalist Roger Sollenberger, in an article published by the Daily Beast, stresses that the donation raises some questions.
