Stephen Colbert and Trevor Noah roast Trump's Tulsa rally
Two days after President Trump's Tulsa rally fell far short of expectations, the hosts had a late night field day with what some might perceive as the Trump campaign's failure, especially on the late show with Stephen Colbert and the Daily Show with Trevor Noah. It didn't help that Trump and others in the campaign boasted that there had been almost a million ticket requests.
After playing a clip from Trump saying, "We've never had a seat and we certainly won't be in Oklahoma," Colbert replied, showing footage of the rally: "He's right, there wasn't one Space. There were thousands of them. Wow, that's a lot of empty space and aimless mixing. "
Colbert also looked to the good side of fewer people who came to the rally because of cases of coronavirus in many states in the country, including Oklahoma.
"It was announced today that two of his employees who took part in the Trump rally on Saturday tested positive for the corona virus," said Colbert. "Wow, imagine how dangerous it would have been if people had appeared."
Noah mocked the few who had appeared after Trump for their thunderous applause and tried to leave that awkward moment when he drank some water with both hands at the graduation ceremony in West Point. He showed that he can actually drink water with just one hand.
After playing the crowd clip that went wild after Trump drank something with one hand and then tossed the glass aside, Noah joined the cheers. "Yes! Woooh!" Cried Noah. "I am proud to live in a country where the President can sometimes drink water with just one hand."
Noah also shared his thoughts on Trump's return to the White House after the rally. Trump left Marine One and looked depressed.
"I've never seen anyone get out of a helicopter so sad," said Noah. "He looks like he's going home from a wedding where he got up at the altar but still had to celebrate because everything was non-refundable."
After the rally, it turned out that Tik Tok users and K-Pop fans trolled the Trump campaign by requesting tickets without intention, which greatly increased expectations, and Colbert had a message for attendees.
"I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart," said Colbert, turning to the camera and making a heart with his fingers. "I have been told that this is in the K-pop world and I hope - I hope it is not another prank. "
The late show with Stephen Colbert is broadcast on weekdays at 11:35 p.m. on CBS.
The daily show with Trevor Noah is broadcast on weekdays at 11 p.m. on Comedy Central.

In an ABC News interview with Martha Raddatz that aired Sunday evening, former national security advisor John Bolton spoke of President Trump withholding aid from Ukraine in return for an investigation into Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Trump was indicted in the House of Representatives and acquitted in the Senate, but Bolton said Trump did exactly what the Democrats had accused. He also pointed at Democrats why he didn't testify.
