On Wednesday night’s Late Night with Seth Meyers, actor, comedian, and former Daily Show regular Lewis Black came on the show to discuss the 2016 election. Prompted by his liberal host to express his “message” to Trump supporters, Black bluntly said they were going to hell.

“I'm saying this as a friend. If you vote for Donald Trump, you’re gonna go to hell,” Black stated frankly. After the audience laughed, Black added, “I know this, because God told me.”

“He calls me. He has my hotline.  And everytime he talks to Mike Huckabee, he calls me up in order to calm down,” the comedian joked.

Myers laughed and said, “Wait, so God talks to Huckabee first, then he gets all--”(hand motions swirling in the air).

“He gets all wound up. He’s got all that kind of nonsense going on and God doesn’t have time for that!” Black joked.  

The comedian has blasted Trump many times, even calling him a “third world dictator.” Black has come out in support of Bernie Sanders in the past, admitting it was because he was a socialist.

As for Meyers, his own Republican-bashing and anti-religious views have frequently been expressed on Late Night. He recently called for Trump to “drop out” of the election.
