On The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon shifted from sorrow to tragicomic mirth about Trump's comments on Charlottesville. "No, there are no fine people marching with Nazis and white supremacists", he said. They go to the playground and they have friends of all races and backgrounds.
Psst. They're actors. Just guess the opposite of the way they're acting. To show them what's right and good.
On Monday, Donald Trump finally addressed the horrifying events that happened over the weekend but, the public was not happy.
"The neo-Nazis and white supremacists came wearing helmets and bringing clubs, and the violence started...and this driver, who has been charged, injured 20 and killed this lovely young woman and it is unbelievably sad".
"I think there is blame on both sides", Trump said in the lobby of Trump Tower. She lives in a palace, everyone makes a big deal when she shows up but she has no power at all. One Facebook comment even went so far as to call the host Stupid Kimmel, miming the president's penchant for nicknames, and then proceeding to say that Kimmel is the real racist in this situation.
Kimmel went on at length, offering the opinion that the president is "completely unhinged". I was excited and I made a mistake.' And you can say, 'Hey, you know what?
"On many sides", Meyers repeated. This guy's different, and that's what I want. "Let's not lay all the blame on the Nazis and the Klan. This is the sort of thing that could alienate his base".
Meyers began his statement by irrefutably stating that the death of an activist on Saturday was "yet another terrorist attack on American soil". Donald Trump did not immediately denounce the white supremacist movement when given the chance, and now, whether he knows it or not, many of those people see him as leading that movement. Heather Heyer was killed when a man drove his vehicle into a crowd of counter-protesters. And, what he said about Trump - and the country - is important. "The jury is still out on the president, as he initially refused to condemn the white supremacists in this country".
Some ignored it, or played it down when Donald Trump claimed our first black president wasn't born in this country.
Colbert then showed off a card he made for the president to celebrate the press conference.
"You can stand for a nation, or you can stand for a hateful movement", Meyers continued.
Colbert responded by saying, "The only thing I'm doubting right now is if you're still going to be president by Friday".
Kimmel then addressed Trump supporters, and first expressed that he understood at first, because Trump wasn't part of the political establishment and people were exhausted of business as usual. "And I thought that was frightful - and it was very him".
I know this is going to sound nuts, but I have an idea, so hear me out on this; I think this could solve all our problems.
"It is hard to express how heartbreaking it is to see something like this happening in our country". They're Nazis. Nazis' main thing is having your papers.
He added, "Just kidding".
