Larry Wilmore gave some accolades to Alabama, after Governor Robert Bentley (R) unilaterally ordered the removal of the Confederate flag from the state capitol grounds. “They took down their four Confederate fla— wait, what the f**k were they flying four Confederate flags?! Four?!”

Larry also looked at Bill O’Reilly’s coverage of how racism in America is totally over — which, of course, was a panel of all-white contributors. And so Larry made things right — by inserting himself into the panel, in order to give some aerial support to the one liberal guest against Bill’s flip responses. “‘So what’?!

Jon Stewart highlighted the great cultural awakening against displays of the Confederate flag, in a segment called: “Huh, I Guess It Is Pretty F#@kin’ Weird That We Fly A Flag In Honor Of A Pro-Slavery Secessionist Army.”

Conan O’Brien highlighted the campaign launch of Bobby Jindal, as the first Indian-American to run for president, as well as the upcoming campaign for Chris Christie: “One guy who’s been to New Delhi — and one guy who’s been to every deli.”

Jimmy Fallon teamed up with Arnold Schwarzenegger, for a special game called “Brainstorm.”

The ruling is an important victory for the committee’s investigation into last year’s attack of the U.S. Capitol since the panel has faced repeated accusations in lawsuits—as well as from Republican members of Congress—that its formation was improper from its inception and that its operations were focused on law enforcement over legislating.
