Okay, last week, Trumpput his foot in his mouth again.

Uh, he... Here's a...he took someone's Purple Heart,

-uh, hypocritically...-(Thede laughs)

It's true. Hypocriticallyendorsed John, uh, McCain

and Paul Ryan and even wondered

why we don't usenuclear weapons more often.

THEDE: Yeah.

He actually said...Now, I've said it before

and I've been proven wrong,all right?

But am I finally right--

is this the end of Donald Trumpor will I be proven wrong again?

Listen, he wouldn'thave got this far

if it was the endof Donald Trump.

-Ugh. -Good point.-He's got a lot more

-idiocracies to prove to us.-Yeah. -Yeah.

-For sure. -You think there'ssome more support there,

-that's it's not... -Um,well, maybe the Purple Heart.

I'm thinking the Barneysupporters'll come out now,

like... I could...

That's the only thingI can equate

purple and Barney and Trump.

That's only thingthey have to do with each other.

Well, and, like,even if it is...

even if it isthe undoing of him,

I think his supporters are notready to give up, you know?

I think thatthey're-they're in a...

they're in a relationshipwith their deadbeat boyfriend,

and they don't want to hear"I told you so" from America,

so they're not gonnabreak up with him,

they're just gonnacling onto him.

I don't know. I-I, to tell youthe truth, I don't know, man.

The... It's...This is like Michael Myers.

Like, he can't (bleep)stay down, you know what I mean?

It's like... it's...Every day...

The more I watch this election,man, the more I feel like

we are just caught upin one big episode of Punk'd.

-I know. -I thinkAshton Kutcher's gonna pop out

and be like,"Aah! I got you, (bleep)!"

I think some peopleare scared that it's like

Freddie versus Jason, you know?

-Like... -I'm like, this dude,he won't stay down.

Do you think... Is therean October surprise coming?

Do you think he can do anything,

or... or there's-there'ssomething

-that he's got...-I don't know, man.

-Up his sleeve? -What--October surprise? Like what?

I don't know, well, what if...-I don't know, it looks like

every time Hillary seems likeshe's about to run away with it,

she'll do some dumb (bleep).

Like lie.

I think the country'sused to that, though.

-THEDE: Yes, yes,Donald Trump never lies. -Right.

-That's what crazy about that.-No, but...

Everything out of his mouthis a lie.

But everybody expectsDonald Trump to lie,

-but Hillary Clinton,she came... -No.

Listen, she came inwith that rap,

-that she's a liar,and then she lies. -No, no.

-But Mike... -She came inwith a rep as a politician.

She came in with a repas being untrustworthy

-and then she lies to us.-No, but that's

living up to your rep, right?

-But if that's the reasonwhy people don't want... -I...

-I find that honorable.-But it...

I'm like, "Oh, yeah,that's-that's exactly

-what I thought she was."-She needs to embrace it.

-She... she needs to embrace it.-Now, look, come on, guys.

-Embrace her liar?-No, Michael, this is a false...

-Trump embraces his doofinessall the time. -Thank you.

But this isa false equivalency, okay?

Hillary Clintonis a political liar.

That's what politicians does.

She liesfor political expediency.

-Donald Trump is apathological liar. -Yes. -Right.

Donald Trump would lieabout breakfast.

He-he would lie about anything.

Hillary Clinton...Hillary Clinton lies the way

-all politicians do.-I'm-I'm sorry, Larry,

but I don't have a favoritetype of liar. I'm sorry.

I don't. I would preferyou don't lie.

At least onewith political experience.

-He has no political experience.-He has none. And, you know,

but... No, I'm nota fan of, uh...

I'm gonna take a liarwith political experience

-over a liar with no politicalexperience. -Agreed.

That's... how sad is that,that we're accepting

-certain types of liars?-WILMORE: 'Cause it's reality,

-it's where we are. -We're...-But, you know, you can change

-your reality, man. -WILMORE:No, we can't. This is the choice

-that we have. -DRAMA:By what, writing in our choice?

-By writing in your choiceor whatever, man. -No.

But we don't have to acceptpeople just lying to us!

-What kind of world do we wantto live in? -A (bleep)-up one.

If you... if you know you'vegained a little weight, right,

and you put on your favoriteshirt and it's a little tight,

and your girl...and you ask your girl, "Baby,

do I look good?" do you want herto tell you the truth?

Listen, I got a gut, andI'll be... I'll be butt naked

on the beach.What are you talking about?

I don't give a (bleep)if you think I'm fat. So what?

All I'm saying is,I'm not saying lies are okay,

but I am saying--I agree with you-- I think

that politicians, by nature,are going to lie to us.

They've got to seem trustworthybecause they've got to please

-a bunch of different interests.-Yeah.

I'm not saying thatHillary Clinton lying is okay,

but I am saying that DonaldTrump lies for personal reasons

that have nothing to do withthe good of the American people.

-Yeah, but also... Okay.-Hold on. Hold on a second.

-I'm going... I'm goingone step further. -Mm-hmm.

-He is a narcissistic sociopath-Yes.

-and a pathological liar-I-I agree 100%. -Yes.

-and has the temperamentof a three-year-old. -Yeah.

And he's so easy to trick.I mean, like-like,

Vladimir Putin just... he justpraised him and Trump's like,

-"He's my friend!" You know?-Yeah. Well, it's crazy, too,

because Trump, Trump,he can't help himself anymore.

-No. -He was in Detroit todayand he said,

"Detroit is run by Democratsall the way through."

Or "Michigan is runby Democrats." Michigan has

a Republican governorand a Republican majority

in Congress the House and the Senate.

I mean, it's just a total...It's a Google-able fact!

-And it's easily knowable!-That's a nice word,

-"Google-able."-You can even Bing it.

All right, do you thinkthere's any chance,

do you think there's any chancewe're gonna see

a bait and switch?Like, any chance

that Trump somehow drops outand Republicans put someone...

-Unfortunately, no.-Do you think that would happen?

No, I think if they would...they would have did that,

-they would have did it already.I think... -Yeah. -Yeah.

I think this is... this isthe candidate they have,

unfortunately, I don't thinkthey're all very happy about it.

And they said, "By God, what hassocial media done to the world

"for us to even have a candidateas Trump as a political...

-Republican?" -You're blamingthe social media?

Absolutely. They would...If it wasn't for social media,

a man like Donald Trumpwould not have gotten this far.

And I blame the fact thatthere's a lot of angry Americans

that are mad that Barack Obamawas president for eight years.

-100%. -Yeah. -So we're gonnatry to go as far right

-as possible.-The Unblackening runs deep.

-Exactly. Exactly. Yeah.-Yeah.

And people shouldn't besurprised. It can really happen.

I mean, this isthe same country... we voted

-Ronald Reagan in and,you know... -Do you think,

do you think if they tookDonald Trump off Twitter

-he could still win?-Um... -Oh. Nice.

I don't know. He'd probably goto Snapchat or something.


-Go to Myspace!-Yeah, yeah. Trumpchat. Yeah.

All right. I-I wishhis candidacy was on Snapchat

-so it would just go poof.-Yes!

-We'll be right back. Poof.-(cheering and applause)
