Over on The Daily Show, Trevor Noah had fun with an old clip of Trump at a time when he briefly considered not moving the embassy to Jerusalem. The Comedy Central host played video of Trump at a rally, where he told supporters that when he was told the cost of the embassy's move would be $1 billion, he stopped signing the executive order midsignature and crossed out his name with a few giant X's.

"I love that Trump tried X-ing out his signature, like he was voiding a check," Noah said. "As if someone was going to take the executive order out of the White House trash and fill out the rest of his name, like some kid is going to use it as his fake ID. Like, 'Sorry buddy, you gotta be 21.' 'That's no way to talk to the president of the United States."
