On The Late Show, Stephen Colbert noted President Donald Trump's retweet of Vice President Mike Pence's statement earlier that morning. Trump wrote, "I agree wholeheartedly" in his retweet of Pence's statement condemning the attempted attacks.
“First of all, we fact-checked that one and it doesn’t work out. You have no whole heart," Colbert joked. "Second, you’re the president. There’s been an attempted attack on two previous presidents today. This is the one time you can’t think of your own tweet?”
Trump and Melania Trump condemned the attempted attacks in their own statement earlier on Monday, while CNN anchor Jake Tapper noted of the targets, "These are organizations that President Trump routinely attacks, demonizes."
Over on Late Night, Seth Meyers dedicated his “Closer Look” segment to the packages and similarly addressed Trump’s retweet of Pence’s statement. “Hey man, you’re the president, you can’t just add your name to somebody else’s statement like you're signing a get well soon card for a coworker,” Meyers said.
“Trump is like a kid who tries to cheat off a classmate but instead of actually copying he just writes, ‘See Mike’s test for answers,’" Meyers added.
Jimmy Fallon poked fun at the situation on The Tonight Show, specifically noting the packages sent to CNN. "When he heard that the president said, ‘Oh my God, is Fox News okay?’ “
Fallon then speculated on what Trump did after hearing the news: "Out of precaution President Trump evacuated himself to a golf course."
