Larry Wilmore looked at “America’s conversation about not talking about guns,” detailing all the ways that the right changes the subject away from gun control after a mass shooting — ranging from suggestions for more guns, to Jeb Bush’s “stuff happens” line.

Trevor Noah asked why pro-life politicians don’t go after guns with all the same energy they use to target Planned Parenthood: “Think about it, people — imagine if we could bring some of that pro-life passion into being more, well, pro-life.”

John McCain sat down with Stephen Colbert, and talked about his history as the Republican nominee for president in 2008. “After I lost, I slept like a baby,” McCain said. “Sleep two hours, wake up and cry; sleep two hours, wake up and cry.”

“Well if you had won—” Colbert began to ask.

McCain interrupted: “I wouldn’t be on this show.”
