Late Night Roundup: Messing With Texas Textbooks

Share

Larry Wilmore examined the latest school textbook revisions from Texas, which is eliminating references to the slave trade, Jim Crow laws, and the Ku Klux Klan — changes will affect history books in schools all across the country. Texas is a big place, Larry explained, “and the one thing Texans like more than white picket fences — is whitewashing history.”

But how to illustrate this? Larry read to a group of schoolchildren from the new book, “Goodnight Slavery.”

Conan O’Brien got a series of accidental phone calls from “Donald Trump,” who talked about his real political agenda — lying about building a wall, or watching Muslims celebrate 9/11: “What I”m selling is a twisted fantasy that a lot of sickos are, frankly, buying into.”

The Daily Show looked at the stakes of the climate summit in Paris, in a segment from correspondent Desi Lydic: “Some insist the time to avoid catastrophe is running out… others are really stupid.”

James Corden discussed the new facial hair being sported by Speaker Paul Ryan — the first speaker of the house to do so in nearly 100 years: “Incidentally, Paul Ryan is also the first politician in 100 years to have a beard that isn’t his wife.”

    Democrats hate it when you delete their favorite traditions.

      Like charity, supporting the poor and disadvantaged, helping those less fortunate, treating everyone fairly and decently, lack of bigotry, racism and misogyny, not invading people to enrich ourselves… shall I go on?

        Your government school masters have taught you well.
