Until Ryan Murphy gets around to Steve Bannon vs. Donald Trump as a Feud installment, the late-night hosts get TV’s first dibs, and they dug in Wednesday night. “The rats are finally eating their young,” said Jimmy Kimmel on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, pondering how the wheels on the Trump bus can keep rolling as one wheel after another falls by the wayside.

Any questions?”
