Appearing on NBC’s “Late Night with Seth Myers” to promote his new Netflix comedy special, comedian John Mulaney compared Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to being a “hobo’s dream” and a “Family Feud” contestant.
MYERS: “Obviously, you’re following the presidential campaigns. You had a great bit about Trump way before — years before he was pretending to run for president.”
MULANEY: “Yes. He was still an odd person then… to me, Donald Trump is not a rich man. Donald Trump is like what a hobo imagines a rich man to be.
Like Trump was walking around under an underpass, and he heard some guy like ‘Ohh, as soon as my number comes in, I’m gonna put up tall buildings with my name on ’em! I’ll have fine golden hair, and a tv show where I fire Gene Simmons with my children.’ And Trump was like ‘That is how I will live my life.'”
“When he makes a decision, he must think to himself: ‘What would a cartoon rich person do?’ Run for president.”
Mulaney took another dig at Trump, this time comparing him to a contestant on a game show, saying that when the “bar for intelligence becomes the people on ‘Family Feud,'” expectations are low:
“[Donald Trump’s] not good at running for president, he’s just good at ‘Family Feud.’ And these other people are terrible at ‘Family Feud.’ So when the Steve Harvey of this election is like ‘Name something that is bothering Americans,’ and Ted Cruz is like ‘Benghazi!’ [buzzer noise]. But then Trump is like ‘All the problems.’ And that’s the number one answer.”
Trump has yet to tweet a response.
