Everything was going smoothly until Booker got his time at bat (Around the 2:57 mark in the above clip).
“Okay you ready? You gotta keep it a hundred,” challenged Wilmore.
“Bring it,” challenged a clearly overconfident Booker. It’s never a good sign when someone quotes a cheerleading movie.
And then came Wilmore’s curve ball: “Do you want to be president?”
“Ah no,” answered Booker. Cue the nervous ha-has. Cue the loud boos from the audience.
That’s when Wilmore threw an actual bag of “weak tea” (translation: “your answer was unconvincing, sir”) at a U.S. senator.
Booker tried to rebut: “We all, especially in politics, we are far too concerned with position than purpose.” Wilmore wasn’t buying it though, and more tea was slung in the senator’s direction.
Let this be a lesson to politicos headed to the “Nightly Show” studio in the near future. Bring hot water.
