Larry Wilmore examined the link between anti-Planned Parenthood scare campaigns, which have falsely accused the group of selling baby parts, and the accused killer in Friday’s attack on the Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs — who reportedly declared, “No more baby parts.”

Larry also examined the responses from Republican politicians — like Ted Cruz trying to falsely blame the attack on transgender people, or Carly Fiorina complaining about Black Lives Matter. And then Larry showed what happens when you add some crazy Kool-Aid to a country that’s already overflowing with crazy juice to begin with.

Over at The Daily Show, Jordan Klepper made an appeal on the political rhetoric in the wake of the Colorado attack. “America, these are frightening times. We’re all understandably on edge. But it’s in these very moments that we must remember our nation’s core values. And that is why tonight, I say to you: Please, don’t discriminate against white men.”

Trevor Noah narrated through Donald Trump’s latest outrageous controversy, with his possible mocking of reporter Serge Kovaleski’s disability.

Conan O’Brien landed this joke about Trump: “Donald Trump’s popular ‘Make America Great Again’ hats are actually made, it turns out, at a California factory that employs Mexican immigrants. Even more embarrassing for Trump — his hair is made by Syrian refugees.”
