This morning, our president woke up and asked his staff, ‘Now that this hurricane is over, what is something horrible I can do to distract people from the Russia investigation?

Late-night took President Trump to task Tuesday after it was announced that he would wind down former President Barack Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which protects young immigrants (also known as "dreamers") brought into the country illegally as children.

“This morning, our president woke up and asked his staff, ‘Now that this hurricane is over, what is something horrible I can do to distract people from the Russia investigation?'” Jimmy Kimmel joked in his Jimmy Kimmel Live! opener.

“Someone said, ‘You know, there are 800,000 innocent kids you can deport for no good reason.’ And he said ‘Done and done!’,” Kimmel teased.

“And this is what Trump wants to do away with — mostly because President Obama is the one who ordered it,” Kimmel explained, adding, “It seems like his main agenda is just to undo everything Obama did. I hope he doesn’t bring Bin Laden back to life.”
