Jimmy Kimmel sat down with Donald Trump himself, and decided to surprise The Donald with a special new children’s book: “Winners Aren’t Losers.”

As one example: “This lobster’s a loser. Throw him in the pot! I like a lobster who doesn’t get caught.” Donald Trump apparently enjoyed this reference to the time he insulted John McCain for having been a prisoner of war.

The Daily Show‘s Desi Lydic did a fact-check on the Republican debate. And well, it wasn’t pretty.

Larry Wilmore examined Ben Carson’s performance at the debate, and what looked like a lot of attempts to stall on talking about foreign policy: “Carson’s acting like a kid who has to do a book report, for a book he didn’t read.”

Seth Meyers reviewed the GOP debate, and how all the hype going into it — that Donald Trump would face off against Ted Cruz — simply didn’t come to pass. In fact, almost none of the other candidates even tried to take The Donald on — except for his “favorite punching bag” Jeb Bush.

Stephen Colbert highlighted Donald Trump’s “astonishingly excellent” and “extraordinary” doctor’s letter: “So while Trump is disease-free, evidently talking like him is highly contagious.”

Conan O’Brien told this zinger: “At a Donald Trump rally the other night, a supporter shouted out the Nazi salute, ‘Sieg heil.’ Trump immediately responded, ‘There is no place for that here — save it for my inauguration.'”
