On Friday, in his “Favorite Jokes of the Week” segment, comedian Seth Meyers mocked President Donald Trump for boasting about donating his salary.
Trump tweeted that he was donating $100,000 to the Department of Homeland Security.
“While the press doesn’t like writing about it, nor do I need them to, I donate my yearly Presidential salary of $400,000.00 to different agencies throughout the year, this to Homeland Security. If I didn’t do it there would be hell to pay from the FAKE NEWS MEDIA!” he tweeted.
Meyers joked that if Trump really wanted to give to the government that he could pay his taxes.
“Of course if you want to give part of your salary to the government you could just pay your taxes,” Meyers said.
