According to a recent poll, Americans blame President Donald Trump over Congress for the government shutdown by a count of 51% to 32%. Late Show's Stephen Colbert joked about the news and referenced Trump's December meeting with Congressional Democratic leaders in which he said he'd be "proud to shut down the government" over the wall.
Trump gave a primetime address from the Oval Office on Tuesday night in which he laid out his argument for a border wall costing over $5B. Late-night hosts joked about the speech, with Colbert joking that Trump preempting FBI isn't the first time Trump's messed with a federal investigation. Trump spoke for 10 minutes, prompting Jimmy Kimmel to joke that Stormy Daniels said that was eight minutes longer than Trump usually goes. Late Late Show's James Corden looked a the content of the speech and wondered if AirBnB was part of Trump saying that the wall would "pay for itself."
