Stephen Colbert examined Donald Trump’s amazing ability to predict future events — if they’d already been in the news. “How spooky — it’s like Trump has some kind of fifth sense that lets him see what’s in newspapers and on TV’s.”

Seth Meyers took a more serious tack, in examining Trump’s newest wave of racist paranoia: “What’s scary is, Trump has crossed the threshold from fun, wildcard candidate who said crazy things and made debates watchable — to someone who is spreading dangerous rhetoric.”
