Late Night Roundup: When Mitt Romney Got In Bed With The Donald

Late Night Roundup: When Mitt Romney Got In Bed With The Donald

Larry Wilmore looked the new public feud between Mitt Romney and Donald Trump, after The Donald responded to Mitt’s speech against him by saying that Mitt “would’ve dropped to his knees” to get Trump’s endorsement four years ago. And in fact, as Larry saw, Romney had nothing but great things to say about Trump at their endorsement event in 2012.

“That’s right, you’re the one who opened your big mouth and got in the bed with the Devil,” Larry declared. “Now he just wants you to keep that mouth open.”

Stephen Colbert ripped into Romney’s speech against Trump, and his reality-TV strategy of telling people to vote tactically for any one of the three other candidates in their particular states. Stephen couldn’t help but think this was part of a bigger strategy on Romney’s part — to grab the nomination for himself.

Trevor Noah slammed Trump supporter Jeffrey Lord, who claimed that the Ku Klux Klan was a leftist organization. Trevor countered this with the actual history of how the two parties switched places in the 20th century on issues of racism: “Republicans were basically Democrats, and the Democrats were basically Republicans. It’s like that movie Face/Off — you know, where they switched faces but underneath they were the same people. Except this is with politics and black people, so it’s more like Race/Off.”

Conan O’Brien said: “It looks like we’re finally moving toward the general election. It’s being reported that the Democrats have a plan to shatter the Republican Party. When he heard this, Donald Trump said, ‘Beat you to it.'”

Jimmy Kimmel said goodbye to the candidacy of Ben Carson, with a special new children’s book: “Goodnight Ben”: “So say goodnight, and go to bed. Make room for Marco, make room for Ted.”

Seth Meyers took a serious look at the case before the (eight-member) Supreme Court right now, involving a set of targeted regulations in Texas to shut down nearly all abortion providers in that state.

Do you remember Lin Wood, the Trump attorney who in December, 2020, accused Chief Justice John Roberts of raping and murdering children? How about this one: the very same Lin Wood accused Roberts of being responsible for the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, who died in his sleep during a trip to a luxury hunting resort in Texas, a trip, incidentally, Roberts did not make with Scalia and his billionaire buddies.

No, Biden Isn't Terribly Unpopular (And He Polls Better Than Trump)

Time was when getting caught in a malicious lie about a rival would have ended an American politician’s career. We no longer live that way. Just the other day, Donald Trump unleashed a series of falsehoods attacking President Biden that would have shamed a carnival barker.
