Trevor Noah Thinks President Trump Could Fire Robert Mueller


Trevor Noah doesn’t know whether he can rule anything out when it comes to President Trump’s decision-making.

Welcome to Best of Late Night, a rundown that lets you sleep — and lets us get paid to watch comedy. What do you think of it? What else are you interested in? Let us know: thearts@nytimes.com.

Donald Trump and ‘Political Suicide’

Trevor Noah responded to the news that President Trump was said to be considering firing Robert S. Mueller III, the special prosecutor leading the investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. It’s a move that some are saying Mr. Trump wouldn’t dare make because it would suggest that he had something to hide.

But on Tuesday’s “Daily Show,” Mr. Noah wasn’t convinced.

“I think at some point we’re going to have to stop saying Trump is committing political suicide. Donald Trump don’t die, people. Donald Trump is the ‘Transformers’ movies of politics: No matter how bad it gets, it’s never over. And you think you don’t know anybody who supports them, but you do. You do.” — TREVOR NOAH

‘In Sickness and in No Health Care’

On “The Late Show,” Stephen Colbert caught up with Melania Trump — played by Laura Benanti — to find out how the first lady was handling the transition to living in the White House.

“Here’s the thing: America took a vow, and Donald Trump is our president, for better or worse, for richer or even richer, in sickness and in no health care. And we must honor that — no matter how often America fantasizes about being with Justin Trudeau. We stay, we make the best of it, and you’ll find, in your greatest moments of doubt, you can always drink. Make America grape again!” — LAURA BENANTI, as Melania Trump

Colbert on Sessions’s Senate Testimony

Meanwhile, Mr. Colbert made fun of Attorney General Jeff Sessions for his tight-lipped testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, during which the words “I do not recall” were a constant refrain.

“Sessions really seems to know nothing. Which explains why he was the first senator to endorse Trump.” — STEPHEN COLBERT

The Punchiest Punchlines (‘Julius Caesar’ Edition)

“New York lawmakers are going to reintroduce a proposal to legalize marijuana. When asked why they were reintroducing it, they said, ‘Cuz we forgot we did it the first time.’” — JIMMY FALLON

“The play is so violent, Delta pulled out. Terrible news for the Public Theater but a great opportunity for United Airlines: They’re probably like, ‘We want in! People are getting hurt? We want in!’” — TREVOR NOAH, responding to the news that Delta Air Lines had withdrawn its support for the Public Theater because of a production of “Julius Caesar” showing the murder of a Trump-like title character

The Bits Worth Watching

Reggie Watts concluded “The Late Late Show’s” run in London last week with this awkward funk jam. Mr. Watts is the master of inducing uncomfortable giggles and hip swivels in the same ridiculous motion.
