    • TRIVIA (2)

    • QUOTES (4)

      • D.L. Hughley: Now, it's time for one more thing. I'd like to discuss something of great importance to me. I didn't mention this earlier, but California lawmakers want to make marijuana legal for recreational use. I talked about that earlier? Man, this glaucoma is a bitch!

      • D.L. Hughley: Well, every week I see news footage and wonder, what were they thinking? So this is Bill Clinton on LARRY KING LIVE talking about Obama:

        Larry King: Can you try to live like a normal person, going home to Chicago? Kids go to school, he helps them to school, plays basketball, goes out to public restaurants, can you keep that up?
        Bill Clinton:: The president needs a release.

        D.L. Hughley: That joke writes itself, don't it?

      • D.L. Hughley: Like Rush Limbaugh, who is the de facto leader of the Republican Party.
        Michael Steele: No, he's not.
        D.L. Hughley: I will tell you what ...
        Michael Steele: I'm the de facto leader of the Republican Party.
        D.L. Hughley: You know what? I can appreciate that. But no one will actually decry down some of the things he says. Like when he comes out and says he wants the president to fail. I understand he wants liberalism to fail. Like, I get it's not about the man. But it is still about the idea that he would rather have an idea fail so his idea can move to the forefront. And that would succeed. And that to me is destructive.
        Michael Steele: How is that any different than what was said about George Bush during his presidency?
        D.L. Hughley: You're absolutely -- let me say something. You're absolutely right.
        Michael Steele: So let's put it into context here. Let's put it into context here. Rush Limbaugh is an entertainer. Rush Limbaugh, his whole thing is entertainment. He has his an incendiary. Yes, it's ugly.

      • D.L. Hughley: One of the things that's happening in California that is amazing to me -- of course, they're in the middle of a huge budget crisis and they're thinking outside the box. They're actually thinking of legalizing marijuana and taxing it. Legalizing marijuana for recreational use and taxing it. And I got -- I got to tell you, I am so in favor of this. I am so tired of pretending like I have glaucoma -- or going to visit my grandmother twice a week. It's hard. Just think what that would do for the economy. Can you imagine what sales of Cap'n Crunch are going to be like?
