MEYERS: "But it's not fair to keep harping on the fact that Trump is dumb. Let's not forget, he's also lazy. The day after Hurricane Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico, Trump jetted to New Jersey to spend a long weekend at his private golf club. The sense of urgency didn't begin to penetrate the White House until Monday. When images of the utter destruction and desperation, and criticism, the administrations response began to appear on television. So, Trump literally needed the TV to tell him to help Puerto Rico. Trump watches so much TV, at this point, even golf announcers will start dropping hints for him about how to do his job."
