Jimmy Fallon wasn’t the only TV show host to take on Donald Trump. Political satirist Jon Stewart dedicated a portion of The Daily Show on Monday night to tackling The Donald’s rough weekend!
During Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner, President Barack Obama and the evening’s main entertainer, Saturday Night Live head writer Seth Meyers, slammed Donald — who has been on a pulpit questioning the president’s citizenship and acceptance into Harvard — with joke after joke, as he sat smirking awkwardly in the audience.
And the weekend seemed to continue in Obama vs. Trump fashion, as the president’s surprise national address, confirming terrorist Osama bin Laden had been killed by U.S. special forces, ended Donald’s Celebrity Apprentice early.
“I’m watching this Apprentice episode… Even though the episode had been taped prior to the Correspondents’ Dinner, the demolition of Trump at the Correspondents’ Dinner was so thorough I thought it might actually supersede the rules of dimensional time and space and leave a mark on future episodes of The Apprentice,” Jon explained, via TV Squad.
And you can imagine just what Jon was thinking when Obama trumped Donald’s NBC reality show to address the nation.
“The President is interrupting Celebrity Apprentice to deliver more jokes, the ones that he had not quite finished, about Donald Trump,” Jon quipped.
Jon’s frenemy — fellow political satirist Stephen Colbert — was giddy over Osama’s death and showed his patriotism last night on The Colbert Report.
“Seth Meyers did a great job at the Correspondents’ Dinner, but I gotta say, this weekend Barack Obama really killed,” Stephen explained. “I am as giddy as a schoolgirl who just shot bin Laden in the eye. In the eye. Ka-boom! Hey, Osama, no 3-D movies for you in hell…Wow. I am just so happy. And I hope, I hope, I am never again this happy over someone’s death. And I know if I saw myself in a mirror, I would be appalled by the look on my face. [Looks into mirror.] Nope. I like this. That’s a good look. I want to stay this way forever.”
