Larry Wilmore Gets Ahmed Mohamed to Admit That Getting Arrested Was “Kind of Cool”

Last week, Texas teen and aspiring inventor Ahmed Mohamed made national headlines when he brought a homemade clock to school to show off to his teachers, only to get arrested for making what his teacher thought was an explosive. Mohamed appeared on last night’s Nightly Show to look back on the bizarre experience, and Larry Wilmore made him keep it 100 when he asked him if it felt at least a little cool to get arrested: “Um, it was kind of cool … the only reason I felt cool about it was because I knew I was innocent.”
