Donald Trump has already been mocked by fast-food giant Burger King for his hilarious “hamberders” typo; now the hosts of late night are getting in on the action.
The U.S. president made the mistake on Tuesday when he tweeted about how he treated the University of Clemson football team to a fast-food dinner at the White House –tragically misspelling the word “hamburgers”.
“Great being with the National Champion Clemson Tigers last night at the White House. Because of the Shutdown I served them massive amounts of Fast Food (I paid), over 1000 hamberders etc,” he said in a tweet that has since been deleted.
On Tuesday night’s “The Late Show”, host Stephen Colbert revealed what else was on the menu at Trump’s White House dinner. “In addition to ‘hamberders,’ there were ‘chorken nerglets,’ ‘fronch firs,’ ‘felayshofitch’ and of course ‘pizzazz,'” he quipped.
Colbert also suggested for Trump’s next distraction stunt he was going to flip over the Liberty Bell and use it as a massive KFC bucket.
Over on “Late Night,” host Seth Meyers thought the misspelling was so bad that Trump must genuinely not know how to spell the word “hamburgers”.
“I think you don’t know how to spell it, and then you made a typo of the wrong spelling in your head. I think you looked at that afterwards and thought, Oh man, that’s supposed to have two d’s in it! I’m so emblarassed.”
Meanwhile, Jimmy Kimmel was more concerned with the number of “hamberders” Trump claimed he served at the dinner.
“This tweet said it was over 1000 hamburgers but a source inside the White House claims the number of burgers was much lower than that,” Kimmel said before throwing to a clip of the president himself stating there were 300 burgers.
“He has to lie about everything, he can’t help it,” the host continued. “Or maybe he ate the other 700 hamburgers himself.”
