NBC’s “Late Night with Seth Meyers” delivered a live show responding to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address.
Meyer’s mocked Trump’s tie, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Energy Secretary Rick Perry — who was the designated survivor during the speech.
But Meyer’s saved some of his most biting criticism for Trump’s continuing demand Congress pay for the border wall he had promised Mexico would fund.
The host read an early morning tweet by the president on building a “human wall” after Mexico wouldn’t pay for a concrete wall and Congress wouldn’t pay for a steel-slat fence.
Tremendous numbers of people are coming up through Mexico in the hopes of flooding our Southern Border. We have sent additional military. We will build a Human Wall if necessary. If we had a real Wall, this would be a non-event!ADVERTISEMENT

“A human wall?” Meyers wondered.
“Who are the humans in the wall anyway?” he wondered. “Are you and your weird sons going to go down to the border and play Red Rover?”
“Red Rover, Red Rover, send immigrants over,” he mocked.
