Reacting to the Trump administration's rescinding of DACA and President Donald Trump's reaction to Hurricane Harvey, several late night comedians on Tuesday smeared President Trump, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, making references to evil characters like Dracula, Adolf Hitler and Freddy Krueger. James Corden also invoked "white supremacy" in reference to ending DACA.
In the monologue of CBS's The Late Late Show, Corden declared that he felt like going back on vacation after hearing about the rescinding of DACA, and soon labeled Trump and Sessions as "bad people." Here's Corden:
The announcement was made by Attorney General Jeff Sessions who spoke about the young people facing deportation. And during the announcement, he said, "This does not mean they are bad people," to which everyone replied: "Yeah, no, no, we know. You're bad people. We know that. You're bad people."
He soon brought up the horror movie series Nightmare on Elm Street as he showed an image of Trump looking similar to Freddy Krueger:
The immigrants who benefited from DACA have been called "Dreamers." And Sessions explained that the kids will still be "Dreamers," but in more of a Nightmare on Elm Street sort of way.
He then suggested that the President is a white supremacist as he added:
Now, this whole situation is really serious. It really is. It now looks like Trump could be deporting hundreds of thousands of immigrants, which is a real faux pas on Trump's part because, as everyone knows, you're not supposed to wear your white supremacy after Labor Day.
A bit earlier, on CBS's The Late Show, host Stephen Colbert began by taunting the President over his response to Hurricane Harvey. After a clip of Trump commenting that "Harvey" sounded "innocent," but that the storm was not, Colbert likened both Trump and former Sheriff Arpaio to Hitler as he cracked: "We've got to stop naming storms after innocent people. Okay, we got to name storms after guilty people so we know the storms are bad -- like Hurricane Hitler or Hurricane Joe Arpaio or Hurricane Donald, for that matter."
The left-wing comedian then made a "bad person" joke similar to the one Corden would make an hour later after playing a clip of the Attorney General:

ATTORNEY GENERAL JEFF SESSIONS: The nation must set and enforce a limit on how many immigrants we admit each year, and that means all cannot be accepted. This does not mean they are bad people or that our nation disrespects or demeans them in any way.
COLBERT: You're right, Jeff. Deporting innocent children does not mean they're bad people. It means you're a bad person.
And on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live, host Kimmel brought up DACA by suggesting that the President wanted to do something "horrible" to distract attention from Russia:
Our President got up and asked his staff, "Now that this hurricane is over, what's something horrible I can do to distract people from the Russia investigation?" Someone said, "You know, there are 100,000 innocent kids you could deport for no good reason," and he said, "Done and done."
He then likened Trump to Dracula as he added: "For months, you know, Trump said those covered by DACA could rest easy -- and that's when you know you're in trouble. It's like when Dracula tells you to relax and take off your scarf, okay?"
