In addition to slurring multiple words, Trump ended the speech with “God bless Israel. God bless the Palestinians, and God bless the United States,” but the last part of phrase was clearly mangled.
Naturally, it became fodder for TV hosts.
“As disturbing as it was today to watch Donald Trump add fuel to the Middle East conflict, it was even more disturbing to watch the conflict between Donald Trump's teeth and his tongue,” Noah said. “It seemed like someone hit him with a blow dart just before he went out to make the speech.
He went on to surmise that Trump must’ve been having trouble with his dentures and called for a “molar investigation.”
“Think about it. Fake teeth, fake hair, fake tan. Like there's no part of his body that's real. At this point, I wouldn't be shocked to find out he is the dude from ‘Men in Black,’” Noah joked.
“He managed to get every word in the speech right, except the last one,” Colbert said. “I am really looking forward to this Jan. 30. We're live when Trump addresses a joint session of Congress for the ‘Shtshh’ of the Union.”
“It seems like something is wrong with Donald Trump's mouth,” host Corden said before going on to play clips of the speech. “I knew he had a screw loose, we didn't know he had a tooth loose.
“That video contains the three things that make up our worst nightmares: public speaking, losing teeth and Donald Trump,” he joked.
The White House acknowledged the slurred speech, calling it simply dry mouth and a non-issue, according to reports.
