#EndorseThis: Michael Moore Says He’d Prefer A President Pence

Michael Moore painted an optimistic picture for the Democratic party as a guest on Seth Meyers’s Late Night on Thursday.

The liberal filmmaker suggested Democrats dispel the idea that a President Mike Pence would be a worse alternative should Trump be impeached: “Don’t be worried about that. Pence actually believes in things. We can have the great debate with him.”

#EndorseThis: Colbert Likens Trump To Your Racist Grandpa

President Trump’s impromptu presser in the Trump Tower lobby in Manhattan on Tuesday — during which he went off-script and explicitly suggested that some of the TIKI torch-wielding white supremacists marching in the weekend’s “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, weren’t neo-Nazis —  was “one for the ages,” says Stephen Colbert: “Specifically 1939 to 1945.”

To the president’s claim to “have no doubt” about his both-sides-ism, the Late Show host responded, “There is one thing I no longer have any doubt about: You showed us who you were.”

#EndorseThis: The Origin Story Of Anthony Atamanuik’s Trump Impression

Anthony Atamanuik, host — you could say — of The President Show on Comedy Central guested on Seth Meyers’s Late Night on Tuesday. He explained the origin of his knockout Trump impression, which started as an audience suggestion at an improv show, grew into a nationwide tour, and ended up a cable TV show.

Atamanuik said he feels like Dustin Hoffman eponymous character in the movie Tootsie: as soon as he embodied Trump, he saw success he hadn’t previously known.
