“We just learned that Robert Mueller has been examining Trump’s tweets. Some of us do that every day, sir. Just a warning: Before you open up his feed, I recommend putting on goggles and freebasing some Dramamine.”

“If Mueller ever gets his interview with President Trump, he, quote, ‘wants to question the president about the tweets.’ So do I. I have so many questions, like, ‘What’s with all the dot-dots?’ and ‘How do you decide what to capitalize?’ and ‘Do you tweet after or instead of flushing?’”
— Stephen Colbert

“The next time you complain about your job, think of the guy who has to read 40,000 Trump tweets.”
— Jimmy Fallon

“It was just reported that a $40 million yacht owned by Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos was untied from its dock, causing the boat to drift away and crash. It was completely unmoored, drifting aimlessly. Oh no, wait — that’s her plan for public schools.”
— James Corden
