Papa Pope is dishing out some words of wisdom.
Days after South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley said its time to remove the Confederate flag, Scandal's Joe Morton appeared on The Nightly Show With Larry Whitmore, where the host asked the 67-year-old star how his character on the hit political drama would react to the current debate.
And in true Eli Pope fashion, the actor did not disappoint, delivering a passionate monologue that caused the hosts to burst into laughter.
"You are some funny, funny people. For you it's always summertime and the living is easy," he said, borrowing the hit tune's lyrics to further his point. "Your daddy's rich and your momma's good looking. You're a Confederate, a proud Southern white boy with a Bible in your hand and a shotgun in your pickup truck. A southern white boy with the shame of slavery running through your veins. You are a bigot."
