The Nightly Show's Larry Wilmore checked in on the latest on the "culture wars" this Wednesday night, and the topic was, to no one's surprise, the Duggars and the recent revelations we've discussed here, that Josh Duggar molested his siblings.

WILMORE: So, you mean to tell me the family that goes around saying gay and trans people are pedophiles preying on America's young people, actually has a pedophile that preyed on America's young people? Wow. I hate pedophiles, but I love irony.

After wondering what Duggar might have to say for himself, and showing some footage of recent reporting that Duggar said he "acted inexcusably" but won't face charges because the statute of limitations has run out, Wilmore continued.

WILMORE: It's always easier to say you acted inexcusably when the statute of limitations excuses you.

After getting some shots in at the Duggars for having such a huge number of children and the odds of having at least one child who turns out to be the Baskin Robbins "pink bubble gum" ice cream of the family, Wilmore moved onto Josh Duggar showing up in so many photos with potential GOP 2016 presidential candidates and his relationship with Tony Perkins' hate group, the Family Research Council.

After showing a clip of Josh Duggar giving a speech for the FRC, saying that "every single child deserves a mother and father," Wilmore wrapped things up with this response.

WILMORE: No Josh. Every single child deserves to be safe from dangerous hypocrites like you. Well, thank God somebody finally did some research on this family.
