The last two presidents had rough weekends, making them open targets for late night talk shows on Monday — President Joe Biden for his ongoing documents scandal and former President Donald Trump for his inappropriate eulogy.
Trump traveled to North Carolina over the weekend to speak at a remembrance service for Diamond, one of his biggest supporters. Trump instead took advantage of the time with the mic by delivering a rally-style eulogy.
“Trump appeared before a sitting-room only crowd of 150 mourners who gathered to hear him speak about their beloved Diamond, and he almost did,” said the “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” namesake host.
“Trump rattled on for 44 minutes. He covered a wide range of topics including NAFTA, tax cuts, crowd size, illegal immigration, why they don’t put Melania on magazine covers anymore, the Space Force, it was all there. It was quite a performance and he got it in just before tomorrow why the Oscar nominations come out.”
“The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” showed clips of Trump’s rambling speech, including jokes about Arnold Schwarzenegger and Martha Stewart unsuccessfully following him on NBC’s “The Apprentice.”
“Is there anyway Martha Stewart can take over this eulogy?” Colbert quipped. “Because even if she just frosted a cupcake it would be more appropriate than this.”
“Late Night Starring Jimmy Fallon” sounded off on yet another round of classified documents being discovered at Biden’s Delaware home over the weekend.
“You know, at this point, just let us know when you stop finding them,” Fallon joked.
“Late Night with Seth Meyers” also wondered why Biden’s team wouldn’t do a complete search and announce all the misplaced documents at once rather than the “drip, drip, drip” that is plaguing his administration.
“You know they’re on to you. Why wouldn’t you get everything gathered up?” Meyers asked. “When you were in college and the cops knocked on the door did you just flush some of the weed?”
“The Late Late Show with James Corden” took a shot at Biden’s age along with his ongoing game of classified document “Whack-A-Mole.”
“Some of the documents go all the way back to when Biden was in the Senate,” Corden said. “At some point they’re going to find an early draft of the Constitution.”
