"No one would no more about budgets being out of whack than the guy who has filed for bankruptcy six times," Corden said.

Donald Trump's behavior during his Puerto Rico visit Tuesday baffled late-night hosts.

The president was already ridiculed on Twitter by Hollywood and beyond earlier in the day for gleefully tossing paper towel rolls into a crowd, telling residents struggling in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria to "have a good time," suggesting the natural disaster that pummeled the entire island wasn't a "real catastrophe," and for seemingly blaming the U.S. territory for throwing the federal budget "a little out of whack."

"You're not working the floor at your casino," Stephen Colbert said while covering the second "disaster" to hit Puerto Rico in 13 days. Seth Meyers, on the other hand, struggled to find the right words and simply said, "I can't."

See what Meyers, Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, James Corden had to say about the president's red flag moments below.

"The Late Show With Stephen Colbert"

Colbert began his monologue empathizing with the citizens of Puerto Rico for surviving the second "disaster" to hit the area in two weeks.

"13 days after Hurricane Maria, yet another disaster struck Puerto Rico. Donald Trump visited the island," he said.

The "Late Show" host summed up the president's visit as "Trumpsplaining at its best," and mocked Trump's awkward joke about the relief efforts throwing the government's budget "out of whack."

"The budget is out of whack?" Colbert said. "That's like a fireman rescuing you from a burning building and then saying, 'You do understand what our water bill is going to be now, right?'"

Colbert also took issue with Trump telling struggling families to "have a good time."

"You're not working the floor at your casino. 'I'm going to comp you half a gallon of drinking water,'" he joked.

The late-night host especially didn't understand Trump asking a local woman if she would drink water cleaned via water purification tablets in these desperate times.

"Yes, yes, she'd drink it cause it's the only water she has," he said. "Just like she's only talking to you because you're the only president we got. She doesn't have a choice."

"Late Night With Seth Meyers"

Meyers was uncharacteristically speechless as he tried to decode Trump's alarming comments.

"I just, they, it was a Hurri-, you're the president. I can't," Meyers said.

The NBC late-night host then joked that Trump was surprised when he asked if he could speak to their president about what is transpiring in the area.

"What? You have a Donald Trump, too?," Colbert said. "I want to meet him. Maybe he also hates his job."

"The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon"

Fallon joked that although Trump was in town to assess the damage in Puerto Rico, Mike Pence will be flying into the U.S. territory to survey the damage done by the Trump.

"I'm very sorry he said that to you. He didn't mean it," Fallon joked while impersonating the vice president, and also had a joke about Trump's budget comment.

"Trump told Puerto Rico that the recovery effort really through his budget 'out of whack,'" Fallon said. "Puerto Rico said, 'Well, next time there’s a hurricane we’ll just push the island out of the way, so we don’t get in the way of your budget.'"

"The Late Late Show With James Corden"

Corden began his monologue explaining that the president decided to visit Puerto Rico just in case they couldn't read his tweets due to the lack of power.

"Donald Trump went to deliver them in person," he joked. "'This is sad, exclamation point! 'That is sad exclamation point!"

"He was there to help, but old habits die hard. As soon as Trump heard people speaking Spanish, he threatened to deport them all to Mexico," Corden joked.

Corden also went in on the president for his budget remark to the Puerto Rican people.

"No one would no more about budgets being out of whack than the guy who has filed for bankruptcy six times," he said.
