Late-Night Comics John Oliver and Jimmy Kimmel Take Their Best Stabs Yet at Dethroning Donald Trump

With Donald Trump poised for a potential near-sweep on Super Tuesday, everyone from his presidential rivals to Republican Party elders to GOP celebrities have been doing their darndest to dethrone the billionaire businessman from his front-runner position.

Late-night comics like Jimmy Kimmel and John Oliver have also stepped up their Trump takedown game.

Last Week Tonight host Oliver devoted an entire 30-minute show to ripping the real estate mogul apart point by point, labeling him "a litigious serial liar with a string of broken business ventures and the support of a former KKK leader who he can't decide whether or not to condemn."

"At this point, Donald Trump is America's back mole: It may have seemed harmless a year ago, but now that it's gotten frighteningly bigger, it is no longer wise to ignore it," Oliver said.

"We have mostly ignored Trump on this show, but he has now won three states, has been endorsed by Chris Christie and polls show him leading most Super Tuesday states, which is a big deal. Since 1988, every candidate who's won the most states on Super Tuesday went on to become their party's nominee."

And over at Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Producers stars Matthew Broderick and Nathan Lane found the ideal "worst candidate in history" in Trump in a spoof on their long-running Broadway play.

Too bad, as they put it, they "picked the wrong fool."
