"The only thing I'm doubting right now is whether you're still going to be President by Friday", Stephen Colbert said on Tuesday's episode of The Late Show.

Meyers ended his monologue with a final plea to Congress.

President Trump's Charlottesville remarks Tuesday met with disbelief from network hosts-and ridicule from their late-night counterparts. "It's pretty troubling when a backyard decoration comes out swinging stronger against Nazis than the president of the United States", he said.

Kimmel's list, 17 items long, included everything from starting a fight with the mayor of London the day after the city suffered a terror attack to "not knowing Frederick Douglass isn't alive". Jimmy Fallon of "The Tonight Show", who had been criticized from some quarters for with having been too soft during Trump's appearance on "Tonight" back during the campaign, felt compelled on this occasion to speak out in a way he has not before on his show - and it was his own personal call to step up and do so, according to a person familiar with the production.

"On Saturday, there was yet another attack in American soil", Meyer said, naming the white supremacist who has been charge with second-degree murder for deliberately plowing his auto into a crowd of non-armed people protesting the rally, killing one and injuring 20 others.

Jimmy Kimmel joins the parade of haters that condemns U.S. President Donald Trump's support for the white supremacists, saying that Game of Thrones' Mad Queen Cersei Lannister would have made a better president.

Jimmy Kimmel also noted how Donald Trump's excessive and hypocritical criticism for his predecessor, Barack Obama, his carelessness when it comes to dealing with sensitive issues as well as the various inconsistencies with his statements.

The Daily Show. The most-quoted remark from the show was a tweet hours before airtime: "Today is the day Donald Trump became president of the Confederacy".

"Even though the "Tonight Show" isn't a political show, it's my responsibility to stand up against intolerance and extremism as a human being", Fallon said, also referring to the events as "disgusting". "There were people who marched against them, you know!" Trump, he noted, has previously excoriated the likes of former presidential candidate Jeb Bush and even "people who drink Diet Coke". Meyers said. "I had no idea!"

"So here's the thing: If you're with a group of people and they're chanting things like "Jews will not replace us, ' and you don't immediately leave that group, you are not a 'very fine" person", Kimmel said.

But now: "You've been trying to ignore it - because you don't want to admit - that these smug, annoying liberals - were right! You have to ask yourself, where does it stop?" "You picked the wrong guy".

Kimmel learned the lesson of Karma on Tuesday when he joked that he could switch things up and focus on anything but Trump in his monologue. "He needs to go.' So - please - think about that".
