Larry Wilmore highlighted the story of Martin Shkreli, possibly the most hated man in America after he jacked up the price of an AIDS and cancer drug by 5,000% — and has now been arrested for running an alleged Ponzi scheme.

“I know the guillotine isn’t popular anymore. I get that. But hey, the public showing of a head being chopped off is the only way to solve something like this sometimes, you know,” Larry said. And then he got really serious: “Some people just need to die — and it shouldn’t be the AIDS and cancer patients.”
