Stephen Colbert, Trevor Noah and Seth Meyers discussed Trumps unhinged rally and his impending meeting with Kim Jong-un
Late-night hosts took aim at Donald Trumps unhinged rally in Pennsylvania over the weekend and shared concerns over his planned meeting with Kim Jong-un.
On The Late Show, Stephen Colbert discussed the presidents announcement of a new slogan, unveiled at the rally to endorse local candidate Rick Saccone. Make America Great Again will now be Keep America Great! for the 2020 election.
Hes replacing Maga with Kag, he said. Keep America Great? Where have I heard that before? Well, it turns out its the tagline for the movie The Purge: Election Year.
Trump also decided to criticize Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd. Colbert quipped: Chuck Todd is not a sleeping son of a bitch. Hes a goatee host organism.
Then followed a strange impression of Trump acting in the way he thinks people expect a president to act. Is Trump really making fun of what he thinks normal presidents are like? he said. Thats like an alcoholic going: Ooh look at me, I can hold down a job without drinking wine in the bathroom.
He claimed its harder to act in the way that he does but its something he has to do.
You have to do this? Colbert said. Does he think acting like a buffoon is mandatory? Is this some sort of Speed situation? Somebody strapped a bomb to the country and if the presidents IQ goes above 55, America explodes?
When Trump brought up his meeting with Kim Jong-un, the audience booed and he told them not to react so harshly. Dont boo Kim Jong-un, Colbert said. Hes just a murderous dictator who fed his own uncle to dogs.
On the Daily Show, Trevor Noah also played footage from Trumps rally, including a line about his wife, claiming that she doesnt have an easy life, despite what many think. Who thinks Melania has it easy? he said. The number one story in America right now is that her husband had an affair with a porn star and then forgot to sign his own non-disclosure agreement. Melania still has to pretend that shes happily married which is really hard. Sally Hawkins had an easier job acting like she wanted to fuck a fish.
He moved on to the meet with Kim Jong-un and commented on how unprecedented it will be: Its like a Sesame Street episode about group sex: its never happened.
Noah continued: The experts have been trying to solve North Korea for 20 years and its only gotten worse so if the smart people cant do it then why not try Trump? Its like if you had a rare disease that the worlds top doctors couldnt cure so you were like, Why not let that dog in a hat have a try?
On Late Night with Seth Meyers, the host also spoke about Trumps unhinged performance as well as Betsy Devoss trainwreck of an interview on 60 Minutes.
Meyers remarked on how little time Trump devoted to Saccone during the rally, despite the fact that he was the reason he turned up. Trumps like the friend you invite to your karaoke party who shows up late, doesnt bring a gift and then sings Stairway to Heaven 10 times in a row, he said.
Trump also spoke about Oprah as a potential opponent, claiming he knows her weakness. He talks about Oprah the way Lex Luthor talks about Superman, he said.
Meyers continted: If Trump ever does debate Oprah, theres a good chance it will end with Trump sobbing at the podium.
He then moved on to Betsy Devos who stumbled her way through an interview on Sunday. Shes the highest-ranking education official in the country and she acts like a substitute teacher who is just realizing her US history isnt up to speed, he said.
Finally, Meyers also brought up the meeting with Kim Jong-un and the possibility that Trump could fall ass backwards into some sort of resolution. If that happens, I will be the first to admit that he wasnt Darth Vader, he was Mr Bean, he said.
