"Nightly Show" host Larry Wilmore last night discussed President Obama's implicit response to GOP nominee Donald Trump, who criticized Obama for refusing to use the term "radical Islam" in the wake of Sunday's Orlando massacre.

"Refusing the term 'radical Islam' hasn't made him soft in the Middle East," Wilmore said. "When it comes to terrorists, he's ruined more plots than an obnoxious coworker live-tweeting 'Game of Thrones.'"

Wilmore noted that Obama "carefully avoided" any explicit mention of Trump — instead using descriptors like "politicians who tweet."

With that, Wilmore welcomed the 2nd-best Trump impersonator on TV to respond to Obama's giving an entire speech about the Republican nominee without ever using his name.

"This is the highest compliment possible," fake Trump said, comparing himself to "Harry Potter" series villain Voldemort. "Me and Voldemort, like two peas in a pod."
