Late Night Tackles President Trump

Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel are seriously amused Trump got trolled by a parody presidential seal

President Trump spoke to teenagers this week at a conference organized by the conservative group Turning Point USA, but "it turns out, Trump delivered his speech in front of a fake presidential seal," Stephen Colbert said on Thursday's Late Show. "Let's look at this thing: The eagle has two heads instead of one — which might look familiar because that's the Russian coat of arms — and the eagle's left talons, rather than 13 arrows, it's holding a set of golf clubs; and in the right talons, rather than an olive branch, it's holding a wad of cash. And in the place where the president should have been, there was an orange doofus."

"I love that Trump walked into a room full of teenagers and got trolled that hard," Colbert said. But it turns out, according to Turning Point USA, "this wasn't a practical joke by the teens, it was just pure uncut stupid by his staff." (The creator of the parody seal begs to differ.)

"That's quite a mistake!" Jimmy Kimmel said on Kimmel Live. "I don't know how you don't notice the eagle is holding golf clubs, but of course Donald Trump didn't. Donald Trump can barely tell the difference between Eric and Donald Jr." Kimmel also raised his eyebrows at Trump lashing out at Sweden — twice! — for charging rapper A$AP Rocky with assault. "He definitely thinks they're holding Sylvester Stallone, right?" he joked, before explaining that A$AP Rocky advocate Kim Kardashian was in the White House this morning.

Kimmel also tried to figure out what is going on with Rudy Giuliani's new magenta hair job. "He's got clown hair now!" he said, showing the evolution of Giuliani's hair from 1980s combover to his new purple look. "It looks like he was eating pancakes and he fell asleep in a puddle of boysenberry syrup," Kimmel said. "Who lets him go on TV like that?" Watch below. Peter Weber
