Late Night Roundup: Donald Trump — Get To The Chopper!

The late night shows focused on the latest spectacle in the presidential race: Donald Trump showing up at the Iowa State Fair, where candidates are always supposed to act relatable and down-to-earth, in his helicopter.

Larry Wilmore actually admired it: “There is no pretend in his game at all! ‘I am not a commoner! I am not one of you! I am one of me!”

And then the man (or troll doll) himself dropped in on Larry’s show.

Jimmy Kimmel checked out what it be would be like if Donald Trump really was Batman.

Seth Meyers: “Donald Trump isn’t running as an everyman — he’s running as what every man wants to be.”

Conan O’Brien: “Donald Trump showed up in a helicopter. Of course, no one could hear the helicopter — over Donald Trump.”
