Kim Jong Un offers ‘extremely unusual’ apology to South Korea over killing of official

“Folks, you know you’re going through a bit of a dark patch in your nation’s history when the president not endorsing the peaceful transition of power is the feel-good story of the day,” Stephen Colbert said on Thursday’s Late Show. The decision in Kentucky that “no officers would be charged with the killing of Breonna Taylor” once again “undermines many Americans’ faith in our system of government — and clearly Trump is jealous, because that’s kind of his thing.”

Colbert was perplexed at why Team Trump would openly tell us how they plan to steal the election, but Joe Biden was right that Trump himself refusing to commit to leaving office isn’t surprising: “I’m not putting it past Trump to barricade the White House gates and put Eric in a Baby Bjorn and use him as a human shield, but what Trump really wants to do is undermine your faith in the election, so you go, ‘Eh, what’s the point of voting?’ The point is: You vote, he goes, regardless of what he tries. We just need to bury him under a mountain of votes.”

If Trump “doesn’t win, he wants to burn this country down,” and “what he just said is terrifying,” Jimmy Kimmel said on Kimmel Live. “Rarely do you see someone be a sore loser before they even play the game.” Still, “several Republican senators pushed back on the president’s dangerous words,” he added. “Even that old son-of-a-Mitch McConnell poked his head out of his shell to refute it.”

“And if recent news has taught us anything, it’s that you can always count on Mitch McConnell to keep his word,” Jimmy Fallon deadpanned at The Tonight Show. “Seriously, even other Republicans were like, ‘Mitch, please.'”

“When Time Life releases a box set of Trump’s craziest moments, this will be on it,” Fallon said. “I’m getting the feeling this is gonna end with Trump locking himself in the Oval Office while yelling into the phone, ‘Space Force attack!'”

The reporter’s “mistake was phrasing the question that way,” Late Night‘s Seth Meyers said. “You should’ve asked: ‘If Joe Biden wins, do you commit to playing even more golf?'”

What Trump said was alarming, but “this does give me an idea for a new sitcom,” James Corden said at The Late Late Show: “Trump refuses to leave the White House, Biden moves in anyway — Our Two Presidents, this January on CBS.” Watch below. Peter Weber
