<p>On the 26 January 2016 edition of Comedy Central's <i>The Night Show</i>, Larry Wilmore celebrated a Texas grand jury's indictment of David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the pro-life Center for Medical Progress, who shot the hidden camera videos of Planned Parenthood allegedly selling the organs and tissue of unborn babies. Wilmore trumpeted, "The good news comes amazingly from Texas....This is the best thing to come out of Houston since Beyonce....And the jurors didn't stop with clearing Planned Parenthood. They also went after the people trying to set up Planned Parenthood." He later likened the videos to the birther theory about President Obama.</p>
