‘Go Fjuk yourself’: Colbert, Noah and Kimmel mock Trump for bullying teen activist Greta Thunberg

Trump’s Thursday morning Twitter tantrums—91 tweets and retweets before noon—became hilarious fodder for the late night comics.

One tweet, in particular, was front and center in several of the monologues: Trump’s attack on Swedish teen activist Greta Thunberg.

Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Jimmy Kimmel called it an “unpresidential day even by our very unpresidential standards.” He also tossed out the idea of giving Trump’s excessive tweet days a new name like “Don-soon” or “Lie-phoon.” Kimmel also wondered why the First Lady wasn’t worried about the President’s bullying of a 16-year-old girl:

“I’m old enough to remember a time when everyone at the White House had a full-blown hissy fit because a witness at Trump’s impeachment hearing had the gall to say the word Barron in a completely benign fashion. That time was last Tuesday, by the way.”

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

Stephen Colbert also touched on the infamous Greta tweet inviting the President to visit a particular Swedish island.

“Since Thunberg is Swedish, let me put this in culturally appropriate terms. Mr. President, go Fjuk yourself.”

The Daily Show

Trevor Noah on The Daily Show also ridiculed the President for telling Greta Thunberg to “Chill.” Noah tries to get the audience to imagine what a president bullying a teenager would look like if it was anyone other than Trump:

“Imagine FDR doing a fireside chat where he just goes in on Shirley Temple. (imitating FDR) My fellow Americans, this little girl can’t dance for sh*t. She’s got worse moves than I do, and my legs don’t work.”

The Daily Show host doesn’t stop with the digs at the President, however. He touches on a few other Trump family members and their scandals of the week.
