Late Night to Trump: Comparing Yourself to Lincoln Is a Bad Idea


Welcome to Best of Late Night, a rundown of the previous night’s highlights that lets you sleep — and lets us get paid to watch comedy. We’re all stuck at home at the moment, so here are the 50 best movies on Netflix right now.

On Sunday night, President Trump was interviewed by Fox News hosts at the Lincoln Memorial, where Seth Meyers said “it kind of looked like Lincoln had been asked to join but was keeping his distance.” Trump at one point compared himself to the 16th president, saying he got more hostile press coverage: “They always said Lincoln, nobody got treated worse than Lincoln. I believe I am treated worse.”

“Right now, 2020 Mother Nature is out of control. A killer virus is one thing, but murder hornets? Sounds like someone is just combining the scariest words. I mean, what’s next? Nunchuck wolves?” — TREVOR NOAH

“Honestly, these murder hornets just sound like psychos. They cut off the heads of bees and they mash up the thorax into a meatball and fly it back to feed their larvae. I thought only Rudy Giuliani fed his family that way.” — TREVOR NOAH

“The Asian giant hornet hails from Japan, where ‘the hornets kill as many as 50 people a year.’ Fifty people! To put that into perspective, sharks killed two people in 2019. That explains why this summer’s blockbuster is ‘Buzz.’” — STEPHEN COLBERT

On Monday’s “The Daily Social Distancing Show,” Jaboukie Young-White investigated how the pandemic is affecting the restrictions on blood donations from gay men.

Jerry Seinfeld will visit “Jimmy Kimmel Live” (not in person, of course) to talk about his new Netflix special.

The 15 books that were Pulitzer Prize winners or finalists this year include Colson Whitehead’s “The Nickel Boys” and Benjamin Moser’s “Sontag: Her Life and Work.”
