"Nightly Show" host Larry Wilmore took on the varied responses among U.S. political leaders to the Brussels terror attacks.

Cruz said the attack "underscores" the fact that we are in "a war with radical Islamic terrorism," and that "we need to empower law enforcement to patrol and secure Muslim neighborhoods before they become radicalized."
