Late-night hosts believe Donald Trump is the one who needs a merit-based policy, not immigrants.
“Somewhere right now Hillary Clinton is like, 'Oh you think people should advance based on merit now? OK, interesting,” Trever Noah said in his response to the President's proposal to cut down on legal immigrationby admitting immigrants soley based on the merit of each applicant.
The ABC host, on the other hand, believed the proposal is Jeff Sessions' attempt to get back on Trump's good side and white American's shouldn't be subjected to such actions.
“They're taking action against affirmative action, and I say it's about time we crack down on getting minorities into college,” he said. “I mean, this has been going on for too long. And I'm not alone.”
Cut to a hilarious message from actor and comedian David Alan Grier about the excessive prejudice white people face in America.
“Won't you join me and Attorney General Jeff Sessions in helping to end years of unjust and immoral discrimination against white people," Grier said. “Let's look at the facts: It all started back in the 1700s, when black people took all the seats in the slave ships for themselves.”
Grier continued to give Kimmel's audience a white history lesson, before turning the conversation to the capital.
“It's so bad that white people had no choice but to create their own all-white government, and they can't get a damn thing done. It's time for a change. It's time to give white people a chance. Call Washington -- Denzel Washington -- tell him it's time to end the discrimination that has kept our white brothers and sisters down for so long.”
Noah was also sarcastically relieved American universities would go back to being majority white.
“Finally! You know how many times I go to colleges in America and say, 'Hey, where's all the white people?'" Noah said. "If American colleges were any whiter, Jon Snow would build a wall to protect us from them.”
But according to a poll that the late-night host found, 54 percent of Trump supporters actually believe white people face more racist judgement than black people.
“It's almost like when rich people complain about their financial problems. 'Do you know how high the taxes on my summer home are?'”
