Late-night hosts attacked the president after he warned North Korea that if they continue threatening us, they will met with “fire and fury like the world has never seen before.” Trump found out that North Korea could possess the ability to make miniaturized nuclear warheads and said it is best for Kim Jung Un’s regime “not to make any more threats to America!”
“Shut up! You’re going to get us all killed!” said Colbert on The Late Show. “ This is the beginning to The Handmaid’s Tale.
His response to Trump’s North Korea comments was consistent across almost every network. Jimmy Kimmel, for example, started his monologue by asking him to go back to golfing before he kill all of us!
,,Here’s the thing, Trump and Kim Jong-un both seem like reasonable men. They will work out fine”, said Kimmel. At TBS, Conan O’Brien used the president’s remarks to make a joke about his sex life.
“The president said that if North Korea does not end their nuclear program, quote, ‘They’ll be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen before. Then Melania said the following: ‘Don’t worry, he says the same to me every night and nothing ever happens.’ So we got that.”
NBC’s Seth Myers opened his show with something similar.
