Yesterday, The Washington Post reported that during a meeting about immigration reform, Donald Trump referred to El Salvador, Haiti and African countries as “shithole countries.” He then reportedly asked why the U.S. couldn't have more immigrants from places like Norway.

Shortly after the news broke, CNN hosts called the President "racist" — a sentiment echoed by many late night hosts, including Jimmy Kimmel.

“Well, listen, I’m sure the fact that the countries he described as ‘shitholes’ are mostly populated by people of color and the immigrants he wants from Norway are not is a coincidence," Kimmel remarked during his opening monologue. "Because if it wasn’t it would mean we voted for a racist—like, a real one—and we’d have to get pitchforks and chase him out of the White House."

Watch Kimmel's response above, then scroll down to see how Trevor Noah, Stephen Colbert and Seth Meyers reacted to the inflammatory quote.

On The Daily Show, Trevor Noah, who is South African, said: "I don't know how to break this to you, but I think the president might be racist." He then added, "as someone who is from South Shithole, I'm offended, Mr. President."

Stephen Colbert on The Late Show

Stephen Colbert took a different angle, announcing that these countries can't be shitholes because "Donald Trump isn’t their president.”

Seth Meyers on Late Night with Seth Meyers

Finally, Seth Meyers dealt with the comments in two ways. First he calmed down with a new segment on his show called, "Seth Has to Walk Away for a Minute.”

Later, during his “Closer Look” section, Meyers joked: “To be fair, maybe he meant it as a compliment. After all, Trump does all his best tweets when he’s sitting on the shithole.”

In other TV and movie news, five women accuse James Franco of sexually exploitative behavior.
