"Nightly Show" host Larry Wilmore has been on top of the goings on regarding the Flint, Michigan, water crisis. The latest development: Gov. Rick Snyder, who pledged to drink the water for 30 days straight, recently left on a weeklong vacation to Europe, where he said he will break his streak.

"What? He couldn't take that filthy water through customs?" Wilmore said. "I hope the TSA made him chug it before he went through security."

"So Snyder only made it five days into a 30-day challenge," he continued. "This is how much of an idiot this guy is -- he fucked up drinking a glass of water."
