Late-Night Hosts Weigh In On Donald Trump Press Conference

Kimmel said the press conference in NY from Trump "ended with our president making an angry and passionate defense of white supremacists". I actually do. You're unhappy with the way things were going. Do they have any semblance of guilt?...

Jimmy Kimmel spent well over 12 minutes talking about the president's comments at the top of his show Tuesday night, saying, "We had so much fun stuff planned for you tonight".

Fallon then went on to criticize President Trump's response to the events, noting "the fact that it took the president two days to come out and clearly denounce racists and white supremacists is shameful".

Seth Meyers also addressed the press conference with a segment he called "Breaking Crazy".

Kimmel wasn't going to let the president off easy.

Stephen Colbert, who has made Trump his target most nights on "The Late Show", also weighed in on the press conference - which he said must have originated from the "seventh circle of hell" - in his Tuesday show.

"And I thought that was awful - and it was very him".

What started as a press conference about infrastructure "ended with our president making an angry and passionate defense of white supremacists", Kimmel went on to say. "Every day there's something nuts, but you've been trying to ignore it because you don't want to admit to these smug, annoying liberals that they were right", Kimmel said".

"The latest Gallup poll found that President Trump's approval rating with Republicans has dropped three points in the last week", he said. This one was allegedly perpetrated by a white supremacist named James Field against a group of protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia. "[Trump] apparently has all of them".

"I wouldn't be lying if I said I would feel more comfortable if Cersei Lannister was running this country", the host declared before calling the president, "completely unhinged".

"The wheels are off the wagon and hurtling through space", Kimmel joked.

"Congress, isn't this enough? It's time to let this insane bitch go to the concert", Meyers pleaded. You didn't want business as usual. And President Trump, instead of condemning the white supremacists, just went out and said, "I condemn all violence from everybody".

Kimmel's plan is simple, and one he thinks will appease those aboard the Trump train as well as the members of the coalition for reason. That is a very powerful feeling - especially when you feel as though you've been told for decades to sit down and shut up by "elites" who insist they are smarter than you and know better than you.

This caused an uproar among people on many sides, and naturally the late night hosts gave their thoughts last night.
