LARRY --

>> JON.

>> Jon: SENATOR RUN AND PAUL,

WHO I LIKE VERY MUCH.

HE SAID HIS FRIENDS ARE CALLING

HIM BRAVE OR CRAZY FOR SPEAKING

AT HOWARD.

WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS?

>> I DON'T KNOW ABOUT BRAVE.

IT'S HOWARD UNIVERSITY NOT THE

APOLLO.

[LAUGHTER]

ALTHOUGH I DID THINK IT WAS A

NICE GESTURE FOR HIM TO GET A

JERRY CURL BEFORE COMING OVER.

>> Jon: THAT'S NOT A JERRY

CURL THAT'S WHAT HIS HAIR LOOKS

LIKE.

>> SERIOUSLY?

[LAUGHTER]

>> Jon: YEAH.

>> AND HE GOES UP ON STAGE?

THEN HE IS BRAVE.

>> Jon: WHAT DO YOU THINK

ABOUT HIS -- LET'S CALL IT TIME

SHARE PRESENTATION FOR THE

REPUBLICAN PARTY.

STRANGE.

>> Jon: THE REPUBLICANS ARE

NOT REALLY STRANGE.

YOU TAPPED THAT BEFORE.

>> WE TAPPED IT FOR 100 YEARS.

[ LAUGHTER ]

THAT'S THE PROBLEM.

YES.

PEOPLE CHANGE SO DO PARTIES.

>> Jon: IT SOUNDS LIKE THE

REPUBLICANS WOULD LIKE TO

REKINDLE THE RELATIONSHIP BY

REMINDING YOU OF THE GOOD TIMES

YOU SHARED.

YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU

GET BACK WITH SOMEONE.

IT'S FUN FOR A WHILE UNTIL YOU

REMEMBER THIS IS EXACTLY HOW YOU

FELT BEFORE YOU CAUGHT THEM IN

BED WITH THE DIXIE CRATS.

>> Jon: THE REPUBLICANS LEFT

BLACK AND NOW THEY WANT TO COME

BACK.

>> I LIKE THAT YOU TWISTED IT

AROUND.

ALL RIGHT.

YEAH, BUT YOU KNOW THEY ARE

PRETENDING THEY DIDN'T DO

ANYTHING.

YOU CAN'T DISAPPEAR FOR 40 AND

50 YEARS AND SUDDENLY SASH YEAH

MEAL.

>> Jon: TRUE.

CHANGED IF YOU ARE PRETENDING IT

>> Jon: I DON'T THINK THEY ARE

PRETENDING.

I THINK THEY BELIEVE IT.

>> BUT JON THIS IS SAY

KANSAS TALKING ABOUT FIXING A

ROOF LAST WEEK, OKAY.

>> THE MISTAKE THAT COUNTY

COMMISSIONER JIM GUILE MADE

PREVIOUS COUNTY COMMISSION

MEETING.

HE WAS TALKING REPAIRG A ROOF

WHEN HE SAID.

>> I GUARANTEE IT WOULD BE THE

SAME IF YOU LET A (bleep).

>> AFRICAN-AMERICAN, ISN'T IT?

>> NO, HE SAID NIGGER RIGGING.

THEY WANT US BACK?

>> Jon: IS THAT BETTER OR

WORSE THAN REGULAR RIGGING?

I'VE NOT HEARD THAT.

>> I'M GOING TO GUESS IT'S

WORSE.

NOT DEALING WITH ACCIDENTAL

RACISM.
