Asked whether or not he hates The Donald, Paul offered a characteristic deadpan: “I really love Donald Trump.”

“I think he’s hilarious,” he added. “He’s in the wrong sort of arena now. I mean, he would be great in sort of the arena of television.”

Wilmore dubbed that answer not quite worthy of a prize. “You didn’t keep it 100. You kept it 70.”

But Paul was more candid in answering the question of whether he’d serve as Trump’s running mate if the real estate mogul was to win the GOP nod.

“It would be an utter and absolute disaster and I would want no part of it,” said Paul.
