Comics, including Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert, discussed the presidents National Museum of African American History and Culture visit and his golf habit
Late-night hosts have discussed Donald Trumps obsession with boasting about his win, despite losing the popular election, referring to him as a loser president.
On The Late Show on Tuesday, Stephen Colbert brought up the presidents visit to the National Museum of African American History and Culture, which included a shoutout for his nominee for secretary of housing and urban development, Ben Carson.
It is the greatest achievement for African Americans since about four weeks ago, when we had a black chairperson, Colbert joked. He also photoshopped Carsons face on to the front of a Dr Seuss book, called How the Grinch Stole Housing.
Trumps visit also allowed for yet more boasting about his win in certain countries, although Colbert utilized this as a reminder that he did fail to obtain the popular election. Hes still chairperson, hes merely a loser chairperson, he said.
He went on to talk about last weeks day without immigrants, during which many immigrants protested by refusing to go to work. I thought thats what Trump called it when Melania stays in New York, he said.
The issue of Trumps obsession with playing golf also came up. Six hours in 30 days? he told. That does explain the bumper sticker on Air Force One: Id instead be golfing and theres a 20% opportunity that I am.
His aides have claimed that he could in fact be on the course for something other than golf. He could be on the course for any reason, Colbert agreed. We know he loves making fun of peoples handicaps.
On Late Night with Seth Meyers, the host joked about a report that Trump and Pence shared a dinner in the White House. Pence told grace and Trump told: There were 1.5 million people at my inauguration, he said.
He also said that Trumps visit to the National Museum of African American History and Culture was part of his ongoing quest to detect Barack Obamas birth certificate.
During his visit, Trump was asked about a rise in attacks against Jewish people. He denounces antisemitism with the same energy you use to thank your aunt when she gives you socks for Christmas, he said.
He then referenced a mistake that saw Pence speak in front of an American flag that had one extra superstar in honor of the new 51 st country: panic.
On The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon dressed up as Trump again and talked about his busy weekend: I shot four under par.
In character, he claimed that it was time for me to take matters into my own abnormally gigantic hands and launched TNN: Trump News Network.
He called it: The only news network that is 100% fair and 112% factual.
The first tale related to the fabricated assault in Sweden: Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the Swedish humen, women and fish.
