Comedian Lewis Back joined Larry Wilmore on his last week of The Nightly Show and told him, in no uncertain terms, that this election “has to stop.”

Wilmore, with Black and a roundtable of two other regular Nightly Show contributors, discussed the election while consuming miniature bottles of booze, sent to Wilmore courtesy of Stephen Colbert. Black has been on Wilmore’s show several times before, and joined him to bid farewell to The Nightly Show.

Greg Abbott — have blood on their hands and money in their pockets.

The crooked gang that has driven the NRA toward bankruptcy through the graft of millions in crony contracts and lavish "expenses" over their decades of self-dealing has greased its political allies, too. At last count the organization has doled out upwards of $100 million over the last few election cycles to its faithful servants, who echo its litany of bogus constitutionalism and absurd alibis against gun safety regulation.
