Late-night hosts recollect departing secretary of homeland securitys time in place, where separating households is apparently not tough enough for Trump
The University of Virginia Cavaliers won the NCAA men’s basketball tournament last-place nighttime, but not everyone was feeling in a celebratory mood, said Stephen Colbert on the Late Show. Kirstjen Nielsen, Trump’s secretary of homeland security and the face of Trump’s border enforcement, resigned from her chore over the weekend.” I conceive she’s leaving to expend more period separating their own families ,” Colbert surmised.
Nielsen did” not resign gladly”, according to several reports, although she accepted her position was ” in limbo” for weeks.” Limbo is the right word here because we’ve all been watching how low-toned she can go ,” Colbert joked.
” Sure, she throws people in enclosures ,” he continued, but Trump was disappointed that Nielsen didn’t reenact even harsher immigration measures.” So he merely necessity someone who can be crueler to children than Kirstjen Nielsen ,” Colbert said of the job search.” Get ready for secretary of homeland security: Pennywise .”
On top of being too light on separating children from their families, Nielsen was reportedly pressured out by the White House adviser Stephen Miller. Relations between the two were reportedly so strained that it represented people uncomfortable to be in the chamber with them. Fortunately,” now that she’s out, Stephen Miller can go back to manufacturing people uncomfortable all by himself ,” Colbert said.
On the Daily Show, Trevor Noah faux-mourned Nielsen for being” extradited out of the White House “.
It’s hard to watch, he lent, because” Nielsen is leaving this White House with her honour in tatters .” She’s the face of their own families dissociation plan,” so basically the only profession she can get now is working for R Kelly”, Noah joked.
And hitherto, he continued, Nielsen was reportedly pushed out because she wasn’t tough enough on migration.” Not tough enough ?” Noah marveled.” This White House is weird, human. How are you going to get rid of the kids in cages woman for being’ too nice ?’ That’s like fuelling a cat for not displaying its anus enough .”
Nielsen’s resignation isn’t that surprising, though, especially given Trump’s weekend commentaries at the Republican Jewish Coalition leadership meeting that asylum is a “scam”, peddled by people with face tattoos.
” Trump is clearly ignoring all the women and children who are claiming asylum- he’s haunted with the pictures of the guys who look to him like UFC fighters ,” Noah find.” Which also might explain why he wants everybody in cages- he thinks it’s their natural environment .”
This moved sense to Noah, because with Trump,” It’s all about how we are search. If you look like a big, tough guy, you can’t be an asylum seeker in his subconsciou … It’s not your fib or your life that President Trump cares about. It’s just how you gaze .”
On Late Night, Seth Meyers looked into the president’s increasingly psychotic rhetoric about the south margin. Last-place week, he threatened to close the border with Mexico, and when forced to back down, he said he would enforce tariffs on Mexican importations if they did nothing to thwart migrants from reaching the US.
” Well, he’s been promising to build a wall for two years, so if I were Mexico, I wouldn’t be that worried ,” Meyers said of security threats.” A one-year admonish is such a lame threat- he’s like a high school bully with no follow-through.’ You better give me your milk money, nerd, or I’ll beat you up as soon as the McRib comes back !'”
Given the perpetual Trump chaos, Meyers said Nielsen’s resignation was not a surprise.” I entail, the authorities concerned has more turnover than a Walmart on Black Friday .”
Nielsen, Meyers observed, will not leave the White House with much goodwill. She protected the president’s separation of parents and children, and mimicked the president’s speech, even telling Congress that” from Congress, I would ask for wall. We need wall .”
” We requirement wall ,” Meyers imitated.” Guess it’s not surprising they’re discounting articles from national constitutions- they’re rejecting clauses altogether.
” Trump turns everyone he works with into Tarzan, it doesn’t matter how smart you are ,” he added.” If Shakespeare had worked for Trump, the line would’ve been,’ Be or not be, that is question .'”
