Hosts weighed in on President Trump’s refusal to say he would step down if he lost the election. “Well, so much for that Nobel Peace Prize,” Jimmy Kimmel said on Thursday.
“The Daily Show” host said that Mr. Romney’s decision on a new Supreme Court justice destroyed the illusion that he was “the dad you ask when your other Republican dads say no.”
“Wow, Steve Doocy just told the president of the United States, ‘Don’t call us, we’ll call you,’” Trevor Noah joked after President Trump announced on-air he’d call into “Fox & Friends” every week and the co-host suggested otherwise.
“It looks like the next long-term residency in Las Vegas will be the coronavirus,” Jimmy Fallon said on Monday’s “Tonight Show.”
The “Daily Show” host was amazed to hear the president say he’d downplayed Covid-19 to avoid creating a panic. Panic is “literally his favorite thing,” Noah said.
“They’re supposed to play basketball, fix racism, sell cereal and date all the Kardashians?” the “Daily Show” host joked on Thursday night.
“Why should we watch their reality show if it doesn’t reflect our reality?” the “Late Show” host asked on Wednesday. “Why subject ourselves to their lies that stick to your soul like hot tar?”
Despite the Republicans’ best efforts, it’s “hard to scare people about the damage Joe Biden could do after the damage Donald Trump has already done,” Noah said.
“Welcome to the convention, everybody,” Colbert said on Monday in an imitation of the president. “Take off your masks and put on your matching Nikes and your MAGA hats. Then drink up our bleach-flavored Kool-Aid.”
The former Trump adviser has been charged with fraud, but the hosts seemed almost as interested in his current look. Seth Meyers called him a “baked-potato Fabio.”
“At this point, our best shot at Trump attacking Covid is someone telling him the virus ovulates,” Fallon said after the president called Kamala Harris a “mad woman.”
In troubling times, the nominations made room for some popcorn TV.
“Unfortunately, putting a piece of cloth on your face has become a culture war, thanks almost entirely to our president,” Stephen Colbert said on Thursday night.
“Yep, Trump visited the wall today, because in time of crisis, it’s important to be with your loved ones,” Fallon joked on Tuesday’s “Tonight Show.”
“Nothing is more humiliating than when you throw a party and most of the guests don’t show up,” Trevor Noah said on Monday’s “Daily Social Distancing Show.”
