Trump-Putin press conference gets a roasting from late show hosts

TwitterFacebook

President Donald Trump’s rather disturbing joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin was always going to be skewered by late-night hosts.

And they did not disappoint.

Following the presidents’ double address in Helsinki on Monday, The Daily Show‘s Trevor Noah didn’t hold back. Before the show, the team pointed out what Russia and America both got out of the summit:

What Russia got:
– total capitulation from Trump
– exoneration for past meddling
– permission to meddle in future

Of course, Melania Trump’s careless jacket was taken to town by late show hosts

Melania Trump’s decision to wear that jacket to visit shelters and facilities for immigrant children at the U.S. border was not lost on late show hosts.

In fact, the subject of the First Lady’s tone deaf fashion choice — a Zara jacket emblazoned with the words “I really don’t care, do u?” — on Thursday was almost too easy for them.

Trevor Noah, who’s had just about enough of this shit, cut straight to the chase.

Trevor Noah also slams Trump’s ‘solution’ to border crisis

TwitterFacebook

Stephen Colbert slammed it. Now it’s Trevor Noah’s turn.

Just days after The Daily Show skewered Donald Trump‘s child separation policy, on Wednesday night, Noah called BS on Trump’s new executive order to halt the separation of migrant families crossing the U.S. border.

The order, signed after immense pressure and public outrage, essentially changes, but doesn’t fix, the humanitarian crisis Trump’s own administration created. “Trump right now is if Superman threw a meteor at the Earth and then stopped it himself,” said Noah. “Everyone’d be like, ‘Thanks, I guess?'”

Remember, the order simply halts the separation of migrant families at the border — it details absolutely no plans to reunite more than 2,000 children with their parents. Plus, the order maintains that while families will no longer be separated, they could possibly be detained together indefinitely. Read more…
