Late Night Hosts Slam Trump for 'S–thole Countries' Remark


Late night hosts pulled no punches to blast President Donald Trump for referring to African nations and Haiti as “s–thole countries.”

Trump’s vulgar comments came during a meeting with a bipartisan group of senators Thursday at the White House, a Democratic aide briefed on the meeting told NBC News.

The news inspired “Late Night” host Seth Meyers to do a segment called “Seth Has to Walk Away for a Minute.”

Meyers left his desk, and off camera could be heard muttering, “At what point, at what point, do you just have some common decency — some, some human emotion?”

During Meyer’s “Closer Look” segment, he speculated that maybe Trump meant the remark as a compliment.

“After all,” he said, “Trump does all his best tweets when he’s sitting on the s–thole.”
