“This season of ‘The Crown’ has really jumped the shark.” — STEPHEN COLBERT
Trevor Noah speculated on the queen’s motivation for the gift.
“That’s right: The queen’s gift for Donald Trump was a book. Either she doesn’t know Trump or she’s trolling him. Why would you give Donald Trump a book? Everyone knows the man doesn’t read! I wish I was there when the queen gave him his gift. She’s like, ‘Here you go, Donald, a book about World War II.’ He’s like, ‘Wow, this is sad.’ ‘Yes, many lives were lost.’ ‘No, I mean the fact that I have to read, it’s so sad!” — TREVOR NOAH
“The queen also led Trump on a tour of the royal collection where he learned about British history. [As Trump] ‘Enough books, Liz. Boring. Show me the wizards. I know you’ve got them around here someplace.’” — STEPHEN COLBERT
Jared Kushner Meets the Press
In an interview with Axios that aired Sunday night, Jared Kushner was asked if he thought his father-in-law was racist, using Trump’s birtherism in reference to President Barack Obama as an example. Kushner responded that he “wasn’t involved” and therefore could not comment.
“That’s an interesting way to think of racism: You can only identify it if you see it first hand. ‘Was slavery racist?’ ‘I don’t know, man! I wasn’t there, O.K.? I’ve just heard good things, I wasn’t there!’” — TREVOR NOAH
“But seriously, how is Jared so bad at lying? He is around Trump all the time. You would think that he would practice. It’s like working at Waffle House and not knowing how to throw a punch — you’re going to get knocked out!” — TREVOR NOAH
“Wow, Jared hasn’t been taken to the woodshed like that since he was carved by Geppetto.” — STEPHEN COLBERT
The Punchiest Punchlines (Buckingham Palace Edition)
“Unlike President Obama, President Trump was not invited to stay at Buckingham Palace. Yeah, when asked why, the queen said ‘We’re worried about our property value.’” — CONAN O’BRIEN
“Really? All 52 bedrooms in Buckingham Palace are being renovated at the same time? All of them? Come on, man! Like, I know you don’t want Trump to stay there but that’s a terrible excuse because now I’m picturing the queen being like, ‘Donald, I really tried to get you a room but the manager said no. I’m sorry, Donald, it’s above me now.’” — TREVOR NOAH
“[Imitating royal aide] Oh, Mr. President, Mr. President, so sorry. We’d love to have you stay here, but the chimney sweeps are cleaning the loo. It won’t be done until 2020 or, God help us, 2024.” — STEPHEN COLBERT
