Larry Wilmore Hits Hillary for Getting Optics All Wrong in Iowa

Larry Wilmore had some more fun at Donald Trump’s expense last night, but The Nightly Show host saved some of his disdain for the way Hillary Clinton failed to change the perception that she is too “secretive” at this past weekend’s Iowa State Fair.

“Hillary seems to care so much about her optics that she always seems to get them wrong,” Wilmore said, contrasting her with Trump, who could apparently not care less what his campaign looks like. Wilmore argued that Clinton should have used her trip to Iowa to “prove that she has nothing to hide,” but instead ended up disappearing behind a black curtain in the middle of a meet-and-greet with voters.

“When the knock on you is that you’re hiding something from us, a black curtain is not the ideal visual,” Wilmore told Clinton. “Stop it, Hillary.”
