  • ABC's Jimmy Kimmel "offered a thorough, and passionately sincere, recital of how Trump 'screws up royally every day, sometimes two or three times a day. Every day there's something nuts!' ... Kimmel's list [was] 17 items long."
  • CBS's Stephen Colbert, on Trump's shot at CNN's Jim Acosta: "Sir, you see how you condemned CNN right off the top of your head with no script? Next time, like that — but with Nazis."
