For a while, Hillary Clinton enjoyed the jokes made at Donald Trump’s expense, but the Democratic presidential candidate thinks it’s time to stop laughing.
Clinton stopped by Late Night With Seth Meyers on Thursday, where the host had “a couple of questions” about her opposition.
“First question,” Meyers began. “Have you heard about him?”
As it turned out, Clinton had, and she took her host’s joke as an opportunity to make a serious point.
“I have to say, Seth: I no longer think he’s funny,” she said, to loud applause from the audience.

Clinton commented in particular on Trump’s recent suggestion that all Muslims should be banned from entering the United States, an idea she called “not only shameful and wrong, [but] dangerous.”
“This latest demand that we not let Muslims into the country really plays right into the hands of the terrorists,” Clinton said. “I don’t say that lightly, but it does. He is giving them a great propaganda tool, a way to recruit more folks from Europe and the United States. And because it’s kind of crossed that line, I think everybody and especially other Republicans need to stand up and say, ‘Enough, you’ve gone too far.’ ”
