Late-night hosts hustle to respond to press conference

On his ABC show, "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" the host compared the Trump administration to a wheelless wagon "hurtling through space", but acknowledged how Trump managed to gain so much support during the 2016 presidential election, which led him to be elected.

Late Night With Seth Meyers airs weeknights at 12:35 a.m. ET on NBC. Colbert quipped, "If the third thing someone says about you, unprompted, is 'he's not a racist, ' you've got a problem".

Late-night TV has been a bastion of outrage long before President Trump took office.

"Please, think about it", he said.

Ultimately, the host pondered at the fact that Americans put a "total disaster" in the White House, thinking it was a good decision for the country and ultimately realizing that it was a huge mistake. "As you know, this weekend in Virginia, the worst people in the United States went to the hardware store, bought tiki torches, lit 'em up and marched in Charlottesville". One of them killed a young woman and injured dozens of other people with his vehicle.

Mission confirmed that his mission has taken control of over 8,000 weapons and presided over the destruction of 1.3 million cartridges.

"It was a horrifying incident that left most of the country stunned and terrified", Meyers said of both the white supremacist Unite the Right rally and the terror attack that resulted in protester Heather Heyer's death. "But on Saturday, you didn't her name or the terrorist's name, or even the word terrorist from our president". Colbert said, impersonating Trump. In what amounted to a separate address to his viewers before his monologue Monday night, Fallon declared that his young daughters, like all young people in the country, need leaders to look up to, "and the fact that this President took two days to clearly denounce racism and white supremacy was shameful". And if he does not do that, if he does not preside over our society, then he's not a president. You can stand for a nation, or you can stand for a hateful movement, you can't do both.

Kimmel ended his rant by offering Trump supporters a way out: "You can do one of two things". Trump would get all the symbols of power, but no actual responsibility.

"President Trump, instead of condemning the white supremacists, just went out and said, 'I condemn all violence from everybody, '" Franken said.

("The Daily Show" with Trevor Noah does not have new shows this week.) Colbert has grabbed the largest audience in late night with his unrelenting - and unquestionably honest - assault on Trump.

But Colbert saved his best zinger for a specific Trump complaint: "If the press were not fake, and if it was honest, the press would have said what I said was very nice".
