WATCH: Larry Wilmore to 'Donald J. A**hole': Even Dick Cheney Says You're Too Extreme

One of Larry Wilmore's regular segments is called "The Unblackening," his term for the race to replace Barack Obama in the White House. In Donald Trump's case, however, the project is more far-reaching. The man, in Wilmore's words, is trying to "unbrown" the country.

Wilmore then rolled tape of Trump saying he would bar all Muslims from entry to an appreciative crowd.

"I don't know what's worse, the horrible thing he said, or the cheering," Wilmore said, concluding that the cheering was worse.

Wilmore continued to mock "Donald J. Asshole," finally pointing out that even Dick Cheney thinks Trump's extremist xenophobia has gone too far. Wilmore could only conclude that Cheney had put in his "real human heart" that day. To Trump, he pointed out: "If Cheney's against you, you really are far out there."
