Bernie Sanders, Ted Cruz take a beating: Larry Wilmore breaks down New York primary misconduct

"The primary system may be rigged, but apparently not for (Cruz's) pleasure"

"Nightly Show" host Larry Wilmore last night updated audiences on the 2016 primary race, which he refers to as "the effort to de-negro-fy the White House."

Responding to Donald Trump's claims prior to his commanding victory in New York of a "rigged" electoral process -- and Ted Cruz's goose-egg pick-up in the state -- Wilmore said, "The primary system may be rigged, but apparently not for (Cruz's) pleasure."

Meanwhile, following an upsetting loss to Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders hinted at misconduct at the polls in an interview with the press. Wilmore noted that primary election rules are especially stringent in the state. For example, the deadline to switch party affiliation was in October 9, 2015 -- a cutoff Eric and Ivanka Trump now-famously missed.

"That was a long time ago," Wilmore said. "Leonardo DiCaprio's latest girlfriend wasn't even born yet."
