After Donald Trump was charged with 34 felonies, late-night show hosts mocked the former US president.
Stephen Colbert makes his debut late Show Monologue by talking about the weather in the Big Apple.
“It was an absolutely beautiful day in New York,” he said. “70 degrees and sunny with a chance of jail.”
over on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy FallonThe show’s host said, “It’s a great day to be in New York City… well, unless you’re a lay person.”
Fallon then said, “Today, history was made in New York City as former President Trump became the first US President to ever be arrested and face criminal charges. Trump made history [and] The only good news for Trump in Florida is that all the history books have been thrown out.”
NBC’s late night show also had a few jokes with a meme that read, “Trump looks like he’s looking at another table at Applebee’s, get your food first.”
“When all your fathers end up in jail,” tweeted Jimmy Kimmel, along with a picture of Jared Kushner. Kushner’s father pleaded guilty to 18 counts of illegal campaign contributions, tax evasion and witness tampering, and was sentenced to two years in prison.
Seth Meyers dedicated his “A Closer Look” segment to the former president, poking fun at a photo of Trump in court, such as “It was the first time in his life anything was exposed to him.”
The late-night show host also noted the lack of a crowd of his followers at Manhattan Court, who “seemed to be outnumbered by both reporters and pigeons”. Meyers also took a dig at Marjorie Taylor Greene, saying that she “appeared to scream and yell like a lunatic—only a tourist from Georgia would think she gets the attention she deserves in New York City.” He joked about George Santos’ lie, alleging that the US representative claimed to have had “a sexual relationship with Stormy Daniels”.
Meyers had Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as a guest and said it was a coincidence as she was booked weeks in advance. While she was there, the US representative was asked for her response to Trump’s allegation.
“I guess I always had a feeling that something could happen,” she said. honestly, if anything, i would have thought it would be something like this, around [the] Falsification of business documents or any allegation related to documentation or finance.
Ocasio-Cortez said her father worked in the construction industry and that since she was a child, “nobody knew [Trump] Better than New Yorkers and what people would have thought he would have been before he became president.
The US representative said it was all about “due process” and the law should apply to all.
