Late Night Roundup: Trump’s Stages Of Grief
The latest dispute between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz — with The Donald’s allegation that Cruz stole the Iowa caucuses by spreading false rumors that Ben Carson was dropping out — was the talk of the night late shows.
Seth Meyers might have put it best, to explain how Trump went from a graceful concession speech and then to vitriol: Trump is going through the five stages of grief — but in reverse, starting with acceptance but then going immediately downhill.
Conan O’Brien said: “This is my favorite thing in politics — when people lie and cheat to get the evangelical Christian vote.”
And Trevor Noah looked at the absurdity of what Carson was actually doing: Going back to his home in Florida — to get new clothes.
