There was no direct mention of Trump at the Oscars, except for Spike Lee’s hint at choosing “love versus hate” at the 2020 presidential elections.
That still prompted a response from the president, and subsequently from Seth Meyers during Late Night on Monday night.
“I love that he didn’t mention Trump by name, but Trump heard ‘hate,’ and assumed it was about him,” Meyers joked. “When Trump hears ‘hate,’ it’s like his Bat-Signal.”
The late show host also dug into Trump’s reported strategy to cause chaos within the Democrats and the party’s quickly rising number of presidential candidates, which includes Bernie Sanders and Kirsten Gillibrand.
“Donald Trump is desperate to cause chaos, because that’s the only thing he’s good at,” Meyers added.
