Viewer Asks Larry Wilmore: Did You Make Jon Stewart ‘Move Out?’ (VIDEO)

Larry Wilmore decided to host a special edition of “The Nightly Show” on Wednesday, dedicating the whole show to reading tweets from viewers, “or as CNN, calls it, regularly scheduled programming.”

Along with his panel, Wilmore answered questions from Twitter on everything from vaccines to obesity. But the line of the night came from a personal question for the host.

“Is it odd that a few weeks after you move into the neighborhood, Jon Stewart decides he wants to move out?” a tweet asked, to big laughs from the panel and crowd.

“I would say yes, it is odd, I’ve said all along that Jon is a racist,” Wilmore joked.

Wilmore and his producer then recalled that before “The Nightly Show” staff moved into their current building, they shared a building with HBO’s John Oliver.

“And right when this show moved in they put up a big security door,” his producer said.
