From calling them “lowlifes” and “wackos,” Donald Trump has had some strong opinions about late night comedians.
Everyone has his or her favorite late night host. Depending on your sense of humor and what you want from a talk show, your host of choice could range from Jimmy Fallon to Bill Maher. For President Donald Trump, his search for a favorite host is…ongoing.
President Trump has made it clear that he is a big fan of television. Award shows, sitcoms, Fox News programming, and more clog up the White House DVR. And being the opinionated man that he is, President Trump has repeatedly weighed in on what he watches.
This includes late night television which has only expanded in scope and influence during the past four years. There are more shows than ever and the highest-rated among them all use the president as a punchline. But as you’ll see, there was a time when Donald Trump was all too happy to be a guest and the show’s were willing to have him.
It is something that President Trump has never accepted as coming with the territory of being a politician, nevermind a celebrity. Time and time again, Donald Trump has lashed out against late night hosts and comedians for doing what they do best.
So with that In mind, Last Night On decided to revisit what the most powerful man in the world thinks of hosts like Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers and more. It is never a good idea to engage in a war of words or trade insults with a comedian. But as you’ll see, that hasn’t stopped Donald Trump from doing just that.
