Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers reunite to take on pro-Trump protesters. Really!

After last week’s controversy over The Public Theater‘s production of Julius Caesar featuring a Trump-like figure as the assassinated titular character, pro-Trump protesters have since stormed the stage to interrupt the show.

Really?! Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers reunited their old SNL Weekend Update routine on Tuesday’s Late Night to repeatedly ask “Really?!” to the president’s angry supporters.

“Really, protesters? Let me get this straight,” Poehler began, “You waited in line to get tickets to a play you already hated. And then you watched it for three hours. And then you ran on stage to protest, but not the president, someone who was dressed like the president, from getting pretend stabbed with a fake knife.”

“And really, if this portrayal was offensive to anyone, it’s Caesar,” Meyers joined in. “Caesar was beloved by the Roman Empire. To put it another way, he won the popular vote.”

Meyers took shots at the Public Theater, too, for making their Caesar look like Trump in the first place. “If you want to see a Shakespearean drama based on Donald Trump, just watch CNN.”

One conservative pundit said a play should be put on where Hillary Clinton gets burned at the stake. “Guess what, bro? You can’t burn Hillary at the stake,” Poehler remarked. “She’s already been burned twice. 2008 and 2016. My bitch is Teflon now!”

    1. Most of them don’t even understand this is simply another version of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, the play is the same regardless of the outfits and yes in 2012 they did the same play with a black actor being portrayed as President Obama. This stuff is childish and really low intellectually. People need to grow up and get educated.
