The week Donald Trump warned of a riot at the GOP convention if he’s not crowned nominee, the presidential candidate who already has devoured the TV news cycle also dominated late-night video viewing online, beating out even Jimmy Kimmel Live’s Practically Perfect Late-Night Video, which hit nearly all the stations of the cross: comic book, movie, breasts.

But, as usual, the week’s most watched late-night video so far is Oliver’s Last Week Tonight talker, on encryption, with more than 4.2M views, because it’s a good chunk of the show’s episode, and cheaper than HBO:

…though it was no match for what may be Oliver’s most watched video to date, two weeks ago, about —  you know it’s coming — Donald Trump, 22M:

And, FYI, here’s CNN’s coverage of Trump’s most recent rally violence, last Friday, at his canceled Chicago rally on a college campus with a substantial Muslim and Latino population — who could have seen this coming?:
