The Nightly Show's Larry Wilmore with his theory on what President Obama has been doing during his historic trip to Africa.
July 28, 2015

The Nightly Show's Larry Wilmore started things off this Tuesday with one of the big news stories of the week, President Obama's visit to Africa, and he wondered why in the world he would be going to Kenya until he remembered something he said not long ago at the White House Correspondents' Dinner last year:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Do you have a bucket list?' I say, well I have something that rhymes with bucket.

Wilmore "whispered" to his audience... "I think he means fuck-it list." As Wilmore noted, Obama had a "mini-mic drop" for the birthers while he was there:

At a state dinner in Kenya Saturday, Barack Obama joked that he “suspects some of my critics back home are suggesting that I’m back here to look for my birth certificate.” Needless to say, the birthers weren’t happy that the president was mocking them...

You can go read the rest of their post for some of the Twitter outrage that followed President Obama's remarks from the right. Wilmore went onto have a bit of fun with making fun of President Obama's dancing while he was there, and compared it to George W. Bush, who he said obviously didn't give a shit either what anyone thought of him, but that was for his entire time in office, not just the end of his second term.

After having some fun with President Obama basically "dumping on everyone" running for president now, including Hillary when he said he could win if he ran again, Wilmore brought in his Senior Black Correspondent Senior "Don't Give a Shit Correspondent" Jon Stewart to discuss whether or not President Obama truly is just checking off his "fuck-it list" and doesn't care, and he asked him about the recent dust up over his supposedly "secret" meetings at the White House.

Stewart wasn't sure how any of them were secret since he was in the log book and photos were taken and told Wilmore President Obama really just wanted to hang out and watch King Ralph.
