Larry Wilmore took Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to task on “The Nightly Show” on Monday for his claim that there would be no more black presidents.

Trump criticized President Barack Obama, saying there would be no black presidents for generations because Obama was such a bad President. Wilmore was a bit confused.

“So what you’re saying is every black person gets penalized for one black person’s actions? Do I really have to explain prejudice 101 to you? By your logic, I should stop going to the dentist because they all kill lions,” he said, showing a picture of the dentist who shot Cecil the Lion in Zimbabwe. “Instead of the real reason why I stopped, which is because they all have a conspiracy to inject black people with Government Killing Juice, #GKJ, look it up.”

But, as Wilmore pointed out, nepotism isn’t too far away in the Republican Party.

“You’re telling me Barack Obama’s poor presidency disqualifies any entire race but George W. Bush’s poor presidency doesn’t even disqualify his immediate family?” Wilmore said.
