As Donald Trump makes the rounds on morning shows, he’s repeatedly the subject of late-night fodder — this time, specifically for his attitude toward women.
Seth Meyers allotted a few minutes on Monday’s Late Night to the topic, because “for comedians, Donald Trump has been the gift that keeps giving, but for everyone else, he’s the gift that keeps giving women the creeps.”
He first noted that Thursday’s debate “did better numbers than an episode of Empire, which makes sense, as the main character in the GOP debate is slightly more unhinged than Cookie.” And he could only attribute Trump’s comments on Megyn Kelly about “blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever” to the possibility that “you didn’t think you could say nose on TV, or you forgot the word ‘nose.’ ”
Still, Meyers noted that Trump is distracting voters from his competitors’ comments about women and women’s health, including stances by Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. “Mike Huckabee is a jack-in-the-box sexist — you turn the handle long enough, you know he’s gonna pop out and say something crazy.”
“Look at it this way: Donald Trump is like a construction worker, catcalling as you pass by. It stinks, but at least you can keep walking,” concluded Meyers. “With everybody else, there’s not gonna be anywhere to walk to. If anything, Donald Trump was just reading the room when it came to what you can get away with saying about women.”
And of Trump’s top spot in the polls after the debate, he shouted, “I don’t know how to feel!”
Jimmy Fallon reprised his impersonation of the presidential candidate to hold a faux press conference in which Trump expanded on his comments to Kelly.
“Yesterday, I called Megyn Kelly to personally not apologize,” said Fallon as Trump. “I was not referring to hormones or menstruation, period. Anyone who thinks otherwise is a total deviant.”
He then launched into a list of how the media twists his words, including those about everyone from his wife and his butcher to Katy Perry and Taylor Swift.
Over on Conan, Conan O’Brien also poked fun at Trump’s stance on women’s health by airing a comical ad for the Donald Trump Ovulation Test Kit. When negative, it says things like, “You’re not ovulating. You’re a loser. Your eggs are losers. Your womb is a fat lazy pig, and your tubes are barren.”
However, it’s a tough product for a woman to sell.
