Larry Wilmore on Donald Trump's illegal immigration plan: Mocks candidate on Nightly Show with 'Mexican baby catapult'

Posted on

Comedy Central

For the 100th episode of The Nightly Show, Larry Wilmore skewered Donald Trump’s illegal immigration plan with an apparatus involving a Trump Troll, a “baby catapult,” and a U.S.-Mexican border built out of Legos. 

This week, Trump vowed to end birthright citizenship — as in, everyone born in the U.S. automatically becoming a citizen — to end illegal immigration. How to do so is another matter: In a clip Wilmore played during Wednesday night’s show, Trump explained he would “work with” families to keep them together, and on the other side of the border. “Work with them?” Wilmore asks incredulously. “What’s he going to do — catapult them over the border?”

At that, a toy helicopter flies in carrying a troll version of Trump, who proceeds to show Wilmore just how that plan would work, with a state-of-the-art, “luxurious,” “Trump-designed Mexican baby catapult.” Wilmore demonstrates, and the Trump Troll approves: “Larry, you just made America great again.”

Watch the clip of the “simulation” below:
