Late-night television hosts had a field day when The Washington Post reported a fake Time magazine cover of Trump hangs in the president’s golf clubs. Stephen Colbert said a few words on it, and Seth Meyers got his turn on Late Night Wednesday.

“That is the literal definition of fake news,” he said. “This would be the saddest thing I’ve ever heard if it wasn’t the funniest thing I’ve ever heard. So you made a fake Time magazine cover with your picture on it. Do you also get your presidential salary paid to you in giant novelty checks?”

“Now, apparently Trump didn’t like this report,” Meyers continued, pointing to Trump’s tweets blasting Amazon and The Washington Post on Twitter. “The #AmazonWashingtonPost, sometimes referred to as the guardian of Amazon not paying internet taxes (which they should) is FAKE NEWS,” he wrote.

“So Trump is threatening Amazon by implying that he might make them start paying internet taxes. There’s just one problem with that: there’s no such thing as an internet tax,” Meyers said. “In fact, the only thing we have that’s close to an internet tax is the fact that when you use the internet you have to read Donald Trump’s tweets. That’s the tax.”
