Late Night Roundup: The Other Political Comedy!

It was a busy time for the late night comedy shows — they had to compete with news coverage of the Republican presidential debates. So did they come through?

Hillary Clinton stopped by Jimmy Fallon’s show — and along the way, she got to talk on the phone with “Donald Trump.”

Larry Wilmore discussed the rise of Ben Carson as an alternative to Donald Trump: “It’s a little story I like to call ‘the Tortoise and the Hairdo.”

Seth Meyers had fellow Saturday Night Live alum Horatio Sanz on, to do impressions of the entire Republican field.

Jimmy Kimmel outsourced the writing of jokes about Donald Trump — to a call center in India.
