NBC’s late-night host Seth Meyers cracked a joke about the dead Americans — killed by illegal immigrants — whom President Donald Trump referenced during his Oval Office address to the country on Tuesday night.
Is this Oval Office: SVU?

He tweeted, “Is this Oval Office: SVU?”
The joke was immediately slammed throughout Twitter.
A former colleague of Meyers’ at NBC Megyn Kelly responded to him saying, “I’m sure that’s hysterical to the families of the murder victims the president just discussed.”
Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld also called out the comedian on Twitter.

The president specifically referenced California police officer Ronil Singh. Singh — who immigrated to the U.S. legally from Fiji — was shot and killed the day after Christmas by an illegal immigrant. He left behind a wife and 5-month old son in addition to his canine partner — who will be retired and sent to live with his family.

Gustavo Perez Arriaga, 32, was apprehended Dec. 28 for allegedly murdering Officer Singh.
Here are some of the other more colorful responses to Meyer’s joke.
Countdown until he deletes the tweet and apologizes, 10…9…8…7

I’ve always enjoyed your humor but this is offensive. Fine if you don’t want the wall but please don’t make jokes about victims & their families. No one deserves to die and if they do, we can honor their memories. You’re nothing short of a disgrace for forgetting that.

Another idiotic comment by a talentless hack who rode jimmy fallons dick to a late night spot. You literally look like you have aids and do meth. Youre rich yet somehow your teeth are that of a 42nd street bum in new york city. Actually thinking about them made me sick just now
