Late night shows are back from break this week, and it couldn’t come at a more perfect time.
When Donald Trump was tasked with delivering remarks to families at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll yesterday, this is what he came up with.
“We will be stronger and bigger and better as a nation than ever before,” the president said, as children cried in the background. “We’re right on track, you see what’s happening and we are right on track.”
“That’s his Easter speech,” The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah said last night. “You can see that’s a guy who has no idea what Easter is actually about.”
“Though I must say, I’m impressed at how Steve Bannon is adjusting to his new role in the White House,” Noah added, implying that Trump’s demoted adviser has taken on a position once held by Sean Spicer.
But Noah’s favorite part of the celebration came when the national anthem played and Melania Trump had to “remind Donald that he’s the president.” In a clip that made the rounds on social media earlier in the day, you can see the First Lady not-so-subtly nudge Trump to put his hand over his heart.
Or, as Noah mimicking Melania Trump put it, “’C’mon, Donald, it’s easy, just put your hand where the human heart is supposed to be.’”
Tonight at 11/10c, Trump stands next to a man in a bunny costume, and still manages to look more cartoonish. pic.twitter.com/HuJf3yCk9U
