I guess they didn't get it. On the conservative Craiglist, you see CNN's Don Lemon raising the third digit at the harsh jokes Larry Wilmore threw at the network and especially him.
“America's finest black journalists in the house. Don Lemon is here, too!”
Wilmore is the host of Comedy Central's The Nightly Show. He talks passionately about issues in Black America with a twist.
Wilmore sealed the deal. Brutally honest and right to the point. The White House Correspondents' Dinner was the final event that President Barack Obama will attend.
In his final year, the president gets one more opportunity to jab the press.
And then the comedian gets an opportunity to go after the president and the press.
Cue the conservative outrage.
Okay, Larry Wilmore was good. I mean he was really good! He brutally hit the junk food media so hard there were jeers from some. He had the most hard line jokes on Fox News, CNN and MSNBC.

“Your hair is so white, it tried to punch me at a Trump rally,” Wilmore joked. “The president’s hair is so white it keeps saying ‘All Lives Matter.’” Then, he added, “All I’m saying is that in less than eight years, Mr. President, you've busted two time-honored stereotypes, black does crack, and apparently once you go black, it looks like we are going back. Thanks, Ben Carson.”
He made fun of Wolf Blitzer's The Situation Room and how the CNN projection board and clock was too much.
He made fun of Fox News and their obsession with trying stifle #BlackLivesMatter. He also clowned on the network for being riled up over Black leaders and Harriet Tubman being on the $20 bill.

You know that Todd Sternes went ballistic over this. Breitbart went nuts. Conservatives were screaming racism when Wilmore went there.
I mean going there is a part of comedy.
Wilmore skerred Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. He didn't have much to say about John Kasich.
Wilmore saying NIGGA wasn't racism. Wilmore isn't racist.
Conservatives aren't funny. Well Donald Trump is funny because he's extremely stupid and ignorant.
Wilmore ends the ceremony on a high note. If you missed the ball, you can view it again on the White House website or YouTube.
