Now that President Donald Trump has declared a national emergency, many of the late-night comics (along with the rest of the nation) are wondering what comes next. Will the case for a national emergency be contested? Will the fight go all the way to the Supreme Court?
Trump explained what he thought could come of the declaration, but Colin Jost of “Saturday Night Live” was too distracted by the president’s voice to pay attention to his words. Hear what the Weekend Update host describes as an impaired version of “Schoolhouse Rock” in today’s Best of Late Night, above.
But for Bill Maher, the most alarming problem is not the message that’s being delivered, it’s the person who is delivering it. There is a national emergency, but it’s not at the border. It’s in Washington. Maher explains why our national emergency is actually Trump.
