Los Angelis Late-night television, which not so long ago could get by on being generally topical — writing jokes off events that were still fresh a day later — has adjusted its writing schedule to keep up with the times.
“Donald Trump gave a press conference right before we starting taping, which means it’s time for ‘Breaking Crazy,’ ” Seth Meyers said on Tuesday’s “Late Night.” It was, he said, “a press conference that can only be described as clinically insane,” and it wasn’t even supposed to be a news conference.
The president was merely supposed to deliver some remarks about infrastructure. But questions from reporters about the white-supremacist violence in Charlottesville, Va. — and what has been widely regarded as Trump’s failure to adequately respond to them — sent the chief executive into a fury of “fake news” rants.
“Normally,” Meyers said, “when someone is talking that level of crazy, Batman crashes through the ceiling and punches him. Trump is like a bad waitress in a crappy diner who’s trying to get fired so she can go to a concert.
“Congress, isn’t that enough? Cut bait on the president,” Meyers added. “It’s time to let this crazy … go to the concert.”
Jimmy Kimmel laid it on thick and rightfully so. It’s pathetic that the President of the United States can’t condemn neo nazis straight out. Thi is the same President ho went nuts on Obama for eight years for not using the words radical Islam. Hypocrisy knows no bounds.
“We had so much fun stuff planned for you tonight,” said Jimmy Kimmel on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” suggesting he wasn’t even going to talk much about Trump.
“And then he opened his mouth and all manner of stupid came out.”
President Trump thinks neo nazis are nice people.
