Larry Wilmore examined the news story telling Bill Cosby’s strategy to fight the rape scandal in the court of public opinion — such as his lawyer arguing that Cosby’s court deposition should never have been revealed. As Larry said: “Because if there’s one thing innocent people hate, it’s the truth getting out.”

Larry also realized that when it comes to Bill Cosby, we have to actually brush up America’s (and Cosby’s) vocabulary by defining a certain word: “rapist.”

John Stewart looked at the latest efforts to fight ISIS — and the shocking news that Iraq’s Sunni Muslim minority are kind of content with the security that ISIS is providing them. “Let me get this straight: Sunni people in Iraq are accepting a brutally repressive, murderous, medieval, Taliban-like state — because it’s better than the government we left them with.”

Jon was also rendered practically speechless, when he highlighted Mike Huckabee’s shocking comments about President Obama marching Israel “to the door of the oven” — among other crazy things Huckabee keeps saying.
