After the LeBron James feud, late-night comic Trevor Noah wonders what’s taking the president so long to get to him.

Is the late-night comic next in line for a Twitter feud? All things Trump tweets in today’s Best of Late Night.
Through crocodile tears, late-night comic Trevor Noah wondered when it would be his turn to come under the ire of President Donald Trump. “Night after night I’m out here,” Noah moaned, with one zinger after another pointing out everything that’s going wrong in the administration. The joke? Noah refers to the president’s practice of getting into feuds with any “famous black person who dared to criticize him.” His latest targets, CNN’s Don Lemon and sports icon LeBron James.
Shouldn’t Noah be the next high-profile black celeb in line for Twitter hate? Check out today’s Best of Late Night to see what else Noah had to say about Trump’s latest James tweets and first lady Melania Trump’s response.
And Jimmy Kimmel points out that the president may be on vacation, but his thumbs are still working overtime. Not only did his tweet about James get him in trouble, so did the one about DJTJ (Kimmel’s nickname for Donald Trump Jr.) and the Trump Tower meeting that was about Russian adoption. Er, wait, no it was about sharing information on a political opponent — a move that was not legal. Or was it collusion, that is legal, but then wasn’t really collusion? Kimmel sheds some light.
