“Late Night” host Seth Meyers on Monday ripped Donald Trump’s speech at the White House Easter Egg Roll, noting the young attendees at the event probably did not care about the economy, DACA or any of the issues the president felt the need to mention during his bizarre rant.
“He still could not stop himself from rambling, even about something as mundane as the White House itself,” Meyers explained, rolling a clip of Trump describing the most famous building in the world as “a house” or “whatever you want to call it,” as “there really is no name for it.”
“What do you mean there’s no name for it?” as shocked Meyers asked. “It’s the name everyone calls it, it’s the White House.”
“Even the children know what it’s called!” Meyers continued. “And if they hadn’t learned it yet you could just ask them to describe it and they’d still probably get the name right!”
Meyers then played a section of Trump’s speech where he described the White House being kept in “tippy-top shape.”
“What is he doing?” Meyers asked. “He talks like he’s trying to distract the security guard while his friend steals a vase.”
Turning to the president’s remarks on the military, Meyers imagined the children screaming, “STOP MAKING US THINK ABOUT THE MILITARY! WE WANT EGGS.”
As Meyers explained, Trump later responded to a question about DACA by insisting that people are trying to take advantage of the program and blaming Democrats for the current standstill on legislation for Dreamers.
“Now obviously those kids didn’t say anything, but if they did I imagine it’d be something like, ‘In order to qualify for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, you have to have lived here continuously since 2007 and been under 16 when you arrived, which means no one arrive now would qualify for the program, and on top of that, you’re the one who cancelled it last year after which you rejected multiple bipartisan compromise to save it, so what you’re saying makes absolutely no sense now shut up and GIVE US OUR F*CKING EGGS!”
