Only one line has seemed funny to me. The blond jokre about Fox News.
Well, he’s going after the conservatives now.
That was a good one: Obama makes the Kool Aid, and everyone at MSNBC drinks it !
Ba da bing!
Looked to me like Obama threw done the gauntlet on the BC issue and others as well....
The GOP field of candidates looks like Dancing With the Stars?
This alleged comedian is the pits. Too bad Sam Kinison is dead
He’s just being cruel now to Trump.
Whoaaaaa .... NO .. not smiling nor happy AT ALL.
OMgosh! Did you all just see Seth hit Trump about running? He’s hitting again!~!!
Hes just being cruel now to Trump.>>>>>>>
Fine by me. Gives Trump more incentive to run
This is getting ridiculous. Very, very nasty.
Trump isn’t smiling. This is just dumb. And lots and lots of white people. LOL
“Tim Pawlenty makes Al Gore look like RuPaul.”
“Donald Trump syas he is running for President as a Republican. We thought that he was running as a joke.”
“It is ironic that Trump is on FOX. The fox is on his head.”
Now Seth making statements about the birth certificate, weaving in “jokes”.
Seth is definitely on Trump’s short list now.
I wish we would avoid talking about people for their looks here- this is not DUHmmieland
And I may be in the minority bere but I think she looks incredibly hot with that haircut tonight
I thought this was supposed to be a roast of the President????
I’m sure they were licking their chops when they saw Trump on the guest list.
Seth is roasting Donald. Trump is not laughing. I expected a joke or two about Trump, but he went on and on and the jokes weren’t funny they were mean-spirited.
Wow ... he’s nasty on Trump ... and they’re both on NBC. Trump looks to be fuming silently, grinding his teeth, and keeping score.
OMgosh! Did you all just see Seth hit Trump about running? Hes hitting again!~!!>>>>>>>>>>
If Trump runs he’ll get the last laugh. These people are smug empty heads. No recession in Washington DC because they rip-off the provinces
Trump is going to use his verbal oozie on Monday. Unbelievable.
