HBO’s John Oliver also noticed the “erratic clusterf*ck” that makes up our modern presidential primaries.

After watching the segment below, all I can say is that if you want to see an interview that’s heavy on policy, look elsewhere. This was more Barbara Walters than FOX News Sunday. That’s not to say it isn’t interesting or worth watching, because it is.

Mexico’s former president had some words for The Donald. And not very nice words either.
