The Nightly Show's Larry Wilmore opened his show with another edition of Blacklash 2016, The Unblackening and a look at the presidential candidates flocking to the Iowa State Fair this weekend, all out there pandering to the crowd, dressing like you're ready to go work on a farm and eating tons of fried foods and pretending they're something they're not.

Except of course for one of them, Donald Trump, who as Wilmore explained, entered Iowa in his helicopter.

WILMORE: He entered Iowa in his chopper. I mean, there is no pretend in his game at all. "I am not a commoner. I am not one of you. I am one of me. Build it and I will come in a chopper. That's what I do." It's amazing. It really is amazing to me.

Trump does not run away from his gaudiness. In fact he owns the fact that he owns everything right? He doesn't care what he looks like.

After getting a shot in at Hillary for being on the opposite end of the spectrum, and caring so much about her optics while always seeming to get them wrong, Wilmore was visited by an unexpected guest.... troll "Donald Trump" in his helicopter dropping in on the studio, who demanded that Wilmore stop talking about the other "losers" in the race. When Wilmore told him he was interrupting his show, the troll fired back.

TROLL TRUMP: What do you mean I'm interrupting? I thought this show was for the blacks? (crowd moans) What? Hey, Larry, I am beloved by the blacks.

WILMORE: You are... no. You are not beloved by the blacks Donald. This is not a show for the blacks. I don't even know what you're talking about.

TROLL TRUMP: Look, whatever Larry. Just get back to talking about me and no that Hillary.

After agreeing to do just that, Wilmore moved onto Trump and his offer to give kids a ride in his helicopter.

WILMORE: So Trump landed, and then offered a type of a ride that is normally offered by, like a guy in a van.

TRUMP: Where are the children? Get them over here. Does anybody want to take a ride.

WILMORE: Stranger danger! Stranger danger! Noooooo! Oh my god.

After a briefly mentioning Trumps awful immigration policy paper he released over the weekend and the fact that he's building a luxury hotel very close to the White House in D.C. and the fact that there are laborers working at the site who have crossed over the border from Mexico illegally, Wilmore explained.

WILMORE: I get it. You don't want to build a wall to keep people out. You want to build a wall to keep all your workers in.

That of course prompted another visit from Troll Trump, who accused Wilmore of lying and explained to him why he was so beloved by the Mexicans, who love him as much as "the blacks."
