Jon Stewart examined how Republicans have tried to reach out to groups like Latinos and women – only to see Donald Trump come along as “the living embodiment of everything Republicans were trying to exorcise from their party.”

Jon also pointed out how Trump has upended the political system: “This Trump guy is a rich, crazy, egotistical monster — people like him are supposed to buy the candidates, not be them!”

Larry Wilmore expressed his total frustration with the high-profile killing of Samuel DuBose by a University of Cincinnati police officer — who was acting off-campus, and who has now been charged with murder — and that these stories have turned into a cruel game of Mad Libs: “And if it feels like The Nightly Show is getting a little repetitive, I totally agree. I mean, at this point my writing staff just has to fill in the names.”

Larry and The Nightly Show contributor Mike Yard also discovered the hard way that the jurisdiction of police officers encompasses “pretty much any place you see a black guy.”
