WATCH: Larry Wilmore Ridicules Trump's Absurd Attempt to Pander to the Jewish Vote

It's Hannukah time, which can only mean one thing. Time for Republican candidates for president to pander to the Jewish vote big-time. For late-night comedians ike Larry Wilmore, every day is Hanukkah with these clowns who are constantly bestowing comedy gifts.

Speaking in front of the Republican Jewish Coalition last week, Donald Trump got the script pretty hilariously wrong. FIrst, he tried to convince the audience that he is the best thing that has ever happened to Israel. "Better than peace?" Wilmore asked, then performed his Trump imitation. "I'm like Moses only less of a loser."

Then Trump resorted to the stereotype that all Jews are good negotiators. "I'm a negotiator just like you," Trump said. "Is there anyone in this room who doesn't renegotiate deals?"

"That's like speaking to the NAACP and saying, 'My candidacy is a slam dunk,'" Sanders quipped. "'Is there anyone in this room who doesn't slam dunk?'"

So stupid. So unconscious.
