Now that our 14th entrant has made his way into the very crowded 2016 presidential clown car, The Nightly Show's Larry Wilmore couldn't resist poking a bit of fun at his big announcement speech this Tuesday.

After showing a bit of footage where the audience could have been mistaken for booing Christie, but were actually chanting his wife's high school nickname, "juice," and noting that Christie did have some actual experience with getting booed, Wilmore and his staff did manage to find one man in the crowd who was definitely not booing Chris Christie.

Wilmore wondered, "Who could possibly be that excited about Chris Christie?" before showing what might have caused the man to be jumping around at the event like his feet were on fire, which was his feet actually being on fire. I don't know about anyone else, but that guy looks eerily like Dinesh D'Souza. Someone needs to go check and see if he was violating his parole that day or not.

After simultaneously apologizing for, while making fat jokes about Chris Christie and letting the audience know they knew they were cheap shots, but sometimes just can't help themselves, Wilmore moved onto the substance of Christie's speech, and why he thought he should be president, which ended up boiling down to just a few things.

WILMORE: Okay. Alright. Now I'm sensing you want a fight. Alright, let me see if I can sum up your political philosophy. Everything is weak. You're going to beat it up. And we're going to like it. Alright Floyd Mayweather. Good luck to you.

For more analysis, Wilmore brought on Chris Christie's high school classmate, and town bully, Matt Caffarelli (Bully-American)... otherwise known as former Daily Show executive producer turned Nightly Show regular, Rory Albanese, who tried to explain to Wilmore why we need a bully like Chris Christie as our next president.
