Seth Meyers Trolls Trump Over Middle East Trip Flubs

"No wonder he thought Middle East peace was so easy. He wasn't accounting for Israel."

President Donald Trump has been out of the country for only a few days, but “Late Night” host Seth Meyers is already feeling the difference.

“It’s like when you were in school and your bully was out with the flu,” Meyers joked before launching into a recap of the president’s stumbles throughout his trip to the Middle East

In addition to ridiculing Trump over the fact that first lady Melania Trump publicly swatted away his hand, Meyers played a clip of the president telling the press that he “just got back from the Middle East” while sitting next to Israeli President Reuven Rivlin. 

“No wonder he thought Middle East peace was so easy. He wasn’t accounting for Israel,” Meyers said. “What does he think the Middle East is?” Meyers then mockingly imitated Trump saying, “I had a great weekend. We achieved peace between the Saudis and the Arabians.”

Watch the clip in the video above.

CORRECTION: In an earlier version of this story, the person sitting next to President Trump was misidentified. It was Israeli President Reuven Rivlin.
