Late night TV hosts celebrated Sarah Palin’s return to the presidential race conversation, with her endorsement of Donald Trump. While Hillary Clinton’s campaign sends out its fundraising email calling it a “bad SNL skit come to life,” and visions of a Tina Fey return to that late-night show this weekend dance in our heads, let’s mull who did it best:
“God, I have missed you! It’s like a magical eagle made a wish on a flag pin and it came to life,” CBS’s Late Show host Stephen Colbert confessed to the former Alaska Gov. “While Trump, admittedly, has given me so much material to make jokes about, nobody compares to the original ‘Material Girl.’”
“Critics are calling Sarah Palin’s endorsement speech of Donald Trump “bizarre,” “meandering,” and “mystifying.” “In other words, she’s still got it!” TBS’s Conan O’Brien raved.
Comedy Central’s Trevor Noah, meanwhile, described her endorsement speech as a “bag of of mixed-up Scrabble tiles that grew a body and came to life,” adding, “the only thing Palin hates more than Obama is punctuation.”
