On Wednesday night's Nightly Show, Lewis Black drank mini-bar liquor (sent over by Stephen Colbert) and railed about this year's election.

"This election, at some point, has to stop.... If you wanna do it this long, than it has to stop, Memorial Day weekend, until Labor Day, JUST SHUT UP! It's the f*cking Summer, okay?"

But seriously. Larry Wilmore asked him if Donald Trump destroyed the Republican Party.

The Republican Party let itself be destroyed by him because they wanted, as the media did, eyeballs. We want as many people watching as possible, so we're going to bring him in — that was the beginning of the end. As soon as he said, 'Mexicans … borders … pillaging … they're eating all the avocados and there's no shrimp dip!' — as soon as he said that, any party with any moral compass whatsoever would say, 'You can run; you just can't run as a Republican.' That was the moment in time people began to watch, thinking, 'Oh, this'll be great. This'll be f—ing fun to watch.'

Can you help us out?
