WATCH: Larry Wilmore Skewers Trump's Sexism
Donald Trump is in hot water again over something dumb and sexist he said to Rolling Stone in a profile last week about fellow GOP candidate Carly Fiorina.
"Look at that face!" Trump told Rolling Stone. "Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?" Needless to say, his comment was seen as wildly inappropriate, but when confronted later by reporters, he insisted his comments were not about her physical appearance but rather her "persona."
The Nightly Show's Larry Wilmore wasn't having any of it.
"The reason we have different words is they mean different things," Wilmore said. "What you can’t do is scream 'Nice boobs!' and then after she slaps you say, 'I was talking about your personality.' "
Wilmore politely explained the difference between a face and persona using the 1997 action-thriller Persona/Off to drive the point home.
"When your face looks like what would happen if Owen Wilson knocked up a bean bag chair," Wilmore said, "you do not get to go around dispensing opinions on faces." Fair enough.
