‘Hole’? ‘House’? Who Cares?

Media outlets still haven’t fully processed the news that President Trump called Haiti and certain African countries “shitholes” during a meeting last week. On late-night TV on Monday, Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon weren’t about to let it go, either.

“Trump said it on Thursday, and not only did the White House not immediately deny it, Trump reportedly was calling friends to brag about it. He’s like a toddler calling his mom to the potty. ‘Come look at the load I dropped in the national discourse!’ ” — STEPHEN COLBERT

“Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci defended Trump, saying, ‘At the end of the day, he’s not a racist.’ Then he said, ‘During the day, it’s a different story.’ ” — JIMMY FALLON
