Liberal “Late Night” host Seth Meyers, on his segment A Closer Look, criticized President Trump’s time away from the White House.
Trump is currently residing at his private golf club residence in Bedminster, New Jersey, as the White House undergoes renovations, which is drawing ridicule from numerous leftist comedians. Meyers is one of those comedians and scoffed at Trump’s insistence that his time away “is not a vacation,” citing “meetings and calls!” in a tweet.
“‘Meetings and calls’ sounds like how an 8-year-old would describe an adult job,” joked Meyers, crafting a faux Trump tweet that read: “This is not a vacation, meetings and calls and secretaries and desks! #Briefcase.”
Meyers also ridiculed Trump’s attire, which included a white polo, khakis and red hat: “Okay, first of all, what are you wearing? Trump, you’re the president, not a hungover cruise director.”
Last Friday, “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert also continued his badgering of the Trump administration by ‘warning’ the White House staff to “change the locks” while President Trump is gone on his 17-day vacation. Colbert ridiculed Trump for leaving on his extended vacation while the White House undergoes maintenance work, saying, “He’s earned it… is a phrase that you don’t say about Donald Trump …. and it’s about damn time, I heard that place is a dump.”
Working in Bedminster, N.J., as long planned construction is being done at the White House. This is not a vacation – meetings and calls!
