"North Korea said today that since President Trump has declared war on the country, it has the right to shoot down United States strategic bombers even when they are not inside their airspace border", NBC's Seth Meyers said. "You can not protest if you're black".
First, during prime time, Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity blasted players for their protests this past weekend in traditional commentary ("Just because something is legal doesn't mean you ought to do it", Carlson said). Exec producer Bodow vouched for Noah's ability to do just that, saying that as far back as autumn 2015, Noah was "swearing up and down that Donald Trump was going to win the election" - an opinion that had the producer second-guessing the show's decision to hire Noah as Jon Stewart's replacement.
And when Stevie Wonder takes a knee, "on his own time, in his own show", conservatives are also outraged-because it shows how "ungrateful" he is for his wealth.
"But when white supremacists march with Nazi flags and Confederate flags through the streets of an American city, he equivocates and defends them".
"Wow, son of a bitch?", Colbert said. "It's wrong to do it in the tweets", Noah said.
"Wrong: kneeling during the national anthem has everything to do with race, just like your presidency", Colbert responded.
"This is a reminder that supporting Trump is a lot like robbing a bank, just when you think you got away with it, the die pack explodes", Meyers said.
And Meyers argued that Trump's tweets were also created to distract people from other issues, like the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and the effort to push through the Graham-Cassidy health care bill. "What kind of human being wants more brain damage?"
