*Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart and Larry Wilmore each had a lot to say about the McKinney, Texas cop who pulled a gun on a group of black teens and aggressively manhandled one 14-year-old girl attending a pool party.
Stewart went so far as to call the officer, Cpl. Eric Casebolt, an asshole on Monday night’s “Daily Show.”
“He’s telling her to get her ass on the ground, and I believe it is literally on the ground,” Stewart said. “Not only is he being an asshole, he’s redundant.”
For some perspective, Stewart turned to “Senior Texas Aquatics Correspondent” Jessica Williams, who noted that the whole incident really represents progress.
“A cop pulled a gun on a group of black kids and nobody is dead,” Williams said.
On “The Nightly Show,” Wilmore titled his segment, “Swimming While Black,” and hilariously pointed out Casebolt’s absurd barrel roll while running after the kids.
