Despite the national emergency that is supposedly rocking the nation, President Donald Trump has been on a roll this week attacking late-night hosts after Fox & Friends happened to quote some criticism from former Tonight Show host Jay Leno.
The latest Fox-inspired tweet posted by the president Thursday morning read, “The three very weak and untalented late night ‘hosts’ are ‘fighting over table scraps. Carson did a great job, it wasn’t political. I don’t know what they’re going to do in 2024 when he’s no longer President? Will be wacky in the unemployment line.’”
“First of all, sir, ‘three very weak and untalented late-night hosts?’” Stephen Colbert responded in his monologue. “It is not just 11:30 on network anymore: James Corden, Seth Meyers, Sam Bee, Conan, Desus and Mero… are just as weak and untalented as me and the double Jim-Jims. I mean, for Pete’s sake, John Oliver is so weak he has to wear a hidden whale-bone strut in his jacket just to hold up his giant British noggin.”
