WATCH: Larry Wilmore's Panel Has a Wild Suggestion for Trump

Donald Trump has some steep unfavorability ratings with people who aren't white men, and rightfully. But so far, the presumptive GOP nominee has failed to face facts. "I'm going to do great with the African-Americans," Trump said not too long ago. "African-American youth is 58 percent unemployed. African-Americans in their prime are substantially worse off, you know, economically than a — than the whites in their prime. And it's very — it's a very sad situation." 

You know what else is sad? Black people really don't like you, Mr. Trump. According to a poll released earlier this month, 94 percent of Black voters view Trump negatively, up from 81 percent in just one month. That ridiculous moment when the presumptive GOP nominee decided to single out an African American man at one of his campaign rallies earlier this month, saying, "Oh, look at my African-American over here. Look at him. Are you the greatest?" probably didn't help.

Larry Wilmore's "Nightly Show" panel chatted about Trump Tuesday night after viewing that clip. "He must not have got the email, we free now," Mike Yard remarked. "Enough with your tripped out memory lane."

"It's just his game of "Where's Waldo," but with black people," Robin Thede quipped.

"Like it was hard to find him at a Trump rally," Yard agreed.

"If he had a Black friend, he wouldn't have put 'my' in that sentence," Arsenio Hall concluded.

The panel did have an idea of how Trump could slightly decrease his unfavorables come November.

"If Trump said, 'I am coming out for reparations for black people. Hillary's not going to say this. I'm saying 'reparations for black people.' All of you guys, I'm writing a $25,000..." Wilmore proposed.

"If he said 25 grand and, like we said earlier, free college.. it depends though.. I gotta see the legislation," Yard told Wilmore, adding, "I don't trust him."
