A new Trump book by Bob Woodward, titled “Fear: Trump in the White House”, is set to be released Tuesday and the late-night hosts wasted no time in discussing it.
Seth Meyers dedicated some of his monologue to the upcoming release, referring to a recorded conversation between the president and journalist regarding the book: “He’s like a guy who doesn’t understand he’s being dumped.
“I’m breaking up with you because you’re dumb, annoying, selfish, ugly… and I’m not attracted to you in any way. ‘So, it sounds like you’re on the fence about going to prom with me?’”
Stephen Colbert, who took a break from the “Late Show” for the past two weeks, explained how the book meant they had to redo the show’s script: “It seems like an explosive book about the Trump White House comes out every few minutes.”
He then added of the book’s title, “Named after the emotion Trump feels whenever he sees a book.”
Jimmy Kimmel said that the latest release “promises to be the president’s most unflattering portrait yet,” before he quipped: “It’s a good thing Donald Trump doesn’t read books because I don’t think he’d like this one.”
Over on the “Late Late Show with James Corden”, the British host joked: “Trump secretary Jim Mattis is not very complimentary about Trump and describes him as having the understanding of a fifth or sixth grader. Apparently Trump could not grasp the concept of how the wheels on the bus could possibly go round and round all day.”
Elsewhere, “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah said, “[The book] might bring down the Trump presidency. I mean, it’s probably not going to do that, but it is pretty funny.”
