Larry Wilmore goes there: "Why are they still calling him 'comedian Bill Cosby?' Isn't he better known now as a 'rapist'?"

"Nightly Show" host Larry Wilmore opened last night's show with his take on the National Museum of African American History and Culture's controversial Bill Cosby exhibit.

"Why are they still calling him 'comedian Bill Cosby?'" Wilmore asked. "Isn't he better known now as a rapist?"

Among the "objects relating to Cosby" at the Smithsonian-affiliated exhibit: "A comic book from 'I Spy' and the cover of a comedy album."

"What, no quaaludes?" Wilmore said. "If you want me to remember Cosby, can you please include all the ways he's tried to make women forget Bill Cosby — cappuccinos, depositions, large cash settlements? I see those things in a museum, I'll think of The Cos."

"As a word of caution," he added, "you do not want to spend a night in that museum, guys."
