Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene’s new book “MTG” has faced ridicule from late-night talk show hosts this week. Host Jimmy Kimmel stated that the book contains “some revisionist history” and “conspiracy theories,” jokingly adding Greene’s “recipe for gazpacho police.” He also mocked the book’s negative online reviews, saying it’s “what happens when you tell your supporters reading makes them gay.” Kimmel criticized Greene’s suggestion of creating another January 6 committee to investigate the attack, asking “And do January 6 all over again?”

Host Stephen Colbert discussed former President Donald Trump releasing medical records describing him as healthy. “We all know Donald Trump is the picture of health, specifically the before picture,” Colbert remarked. He joked that he would “cut his ears off” when Representative Clay Higgins promoted January 6 conspiracy theories about “ghost buses” carrying undercover informants. A Washington Post article interviewed 16 former Trump White House aides advising against his re-election also caught Colbert’s attention.

On Late Night, host Seth Meyers poked fun at President Biden for joking he was turning 60 instead of 81, calling it proof that “nothing drives home how very old you are.” Meyers also highlighted Biden mixing up pop stars Taylor Swift and Britney Spears during White House comments.
