>> larry: whoo. thank you very much. man, what. welcome to "the nightly show." thank you. you're too kind. too kind. thank you very much. welcome to "the nightly show." one guy was like larry -- ooh. so, man, last night was the start of the republican national convention in cleveland. you know what that means the epic unblacking of the white house is kicking into high gear.
oh, man. that was kind of scary. now, of course the big story coming from the night wasn't scott baio or benghazi or five different people calling hilary a murderer for whatever that was. it was a big michelle obama speech. yes, brought to you by melania trump. >> you're word is your bond and you do what you say. you're word is your bond and you say what you're going to do. and to know that the height of you're achievement is were willingness to work hard for
them. >> larry: oh, man. apparently a significant chunk of michelle obama's 2008 speech at the democratic speech was like airlifted out of denver and dropped into cleveland for melania trump. this is shocking. and it's worse than when melania took her let us do motions campaign. all right. i didn't think she'd get away with that so there you go. ok. who is responsible for this? whoever it is it's going to be their last day on the trump campaign. >> i voted. >> larry: with a little help from michelle obama.
and i have a dream. but she admitted she wrote it but it didn't stop the campaign from bending over to defend her and watch campaign manager paul manafort defend her. >> how do you explain the similarities. >> there's fragments of words. >> larry: fragments of words? are you kidding me? no, fragments much words are like muh. dah. she took entire groups of words, also known as sentences from the first lady's 2008 convention speech. it doesn't stop there.
this is hilarious another defense came from a strategist that said the words are out there. >> melania said you work hard for what you get in life and kid rock said work hard to be anything you want in life. melania trump said work hard and my little pony said anything you can do in your dreams you can do now. >> larry: hold on. nuh-uh. she lifted from twilight sparkle? you couldn't even steal from the medium-sized pony? you had to steal from the little pony? have you no decency, lady? but why do they make excuses for this? it's so clearly plagiarism. with us is is daniel condo.
>> larry, come on. it's all a coincidence. come on, it's nothing but coincidence. people say the same words all the time. >> larry: melania lifted an entire paragraph. it's plagiarism. >> it happens, come on. it's a total coincidence, larry. that's all this is. >> larry: i think they're reaching. why can't they just admit they did something wrong? >> how do you know michelle obama didn't steal the speech from melania? >> larry: how could that possibly be. michelle gave her speech in 2008. >> did you of see the movie "looper"? >> larry: mark wahlberg? >> no, gordon levitt. anyway, he's looping through time and going back and trig to fix stuff.
is he going to steal speeches? i don't know. michelle obama could have straight up looped. >> larry: let me get this straight. for you it's more plausible that michelle ope ope looped or time travelled than melania plagiarized? >> yep, that makes sense to all of us at trump h.q. >> larry: how do i say this? you're a [bleep]ing idiot. >> you just proved my point. no more little pony. >> larry: daniel condone, everyone. ok. so obviously a lot happened at the rnc last night but the thing that bugged me the most didn't even happen on the convention floor. >> they had the largest police union calling to restrict the
open-carry gun laws during the republican national convention. >> larry: because of recent incidents because of violence against police but because of ohio's open-carry laws some police are nervous it can cause a problem. >> it will divert resource. people strapped with age ar-15 will have a lot of police officers looking at them. >> larry: yes. police are up there thinking he's right. yes. that is correct. police will watch someone carrying an ar-15. that makes sense. i look at anyone squeezing peaches twice at the grocery store? why do you have to keep squeezing? i don't get it. and he won't give a weirdly specific example. >> my grandmother can come in with an ar-15 on her back and
six police officers will be watching her. when they should be watching for other things. >> larry: hold up, you still have your grandmother? she's got to be like 130. hey, if she want to carry an ar-15 i say god bless her. hey, if i was that old i wouldn't worry about an assault rifle. so what do you posropose. >> get rid of the open-carries. >> larry: yes. yes. thank you. that's a god idea. get rid of these open carries. >> get rid of the open carries just for the three-day period. that's fine, come back august 1 with 1,000 people with open carries and we'll welcome you with open arms. >> larry: no. close your arms. i was agreeing with you.
apparently i was agreeing with you more than you agreeing with you. ok, so here's what's completely insane. they're concerned people carrying around guns, particularly assault rifles may not be a good idea like now but in three days it will be cool. all right. what did the governor say about this? >> the governor's office responsed saying they can't suspend the law unilaterally. it's a law. >> larry: you don't get to choose. that's the thing with the law. hey, i'm going to shoplift next week can we suspend the law for a while. but that's why you shouldn't have passed the law in the first place. look, guys, i respect the police. i want them to be a safe as
possible and i agree with them that openly carrying firearms can foster fear and violence. i just think it can foster fear and violence 52 weeks a year particularly in the same city where tamir rice was shot and killed for open carrying a toy gun. now, the theme last night was make america safe again but as long as anyone can carry an ar-15 down the street and police have no idea who they're supposed to be watching out for i don't think anyone in cleveland should feel particularly safe. we'll be right back. ♪ you've wished upon it all year, and now it's finally here. the mercedes-benz summer event is back, with incredible offers

do you think she wrote it herself? >> i'm concerned we're playing into trump's hands. like in the greenroom -- i was in the greenroom going through twitter and apparently donald trump is going to drop a snapchat video on the phone with michelle obama and michelle saying i'm going to let you have it. i'm pum pumping the brakes. >> of course she didn't write it. >> as someone who just got off the campaign i think whoever wrote it is besides the point the point is it's dumpster fire and that a campaign is dealing with this is appalling.
>> larry: his whole campaign is a dumpster fire it's a toilet fire. a toilet on fire and we can't stop watching. >> it's scott baio speak at your presidential convention. >> larry: i don't agree. it was so close. someone has to copy that. >> i think a staffer copied it. >> they were pressed for time so they googled it. >> normally you and i agree robin but one, lying is clinton's thing so they have to lay off the lying and second, stealing because he's starting
