Conan Without Borders goes to Haiti to mock Trump mercilessly
Conan is back in the saddle and bringing us another “Conan Without Borders” episode and this time he is going after Trump by visiting Haiti.
The late-night host announced on Sunday that he is heading to Haiti for the next Conan Without Borders and it’s all because Trump offensively called the country a “sh**hole” during an immigration meeting last week that took place in the Oval Office. The meeting was to discuss immigration protections for some nations, included in his statement were many African nations and El Salvador.
“Still reeling from @realDonaldTrump’s very negative Yelp review of Haiti, which means I’ll love it. Headed to Haiti later this week to explore and make some new friends. Stay tuned for my report,” Conan tweeted on Sunday.
Since the offensive Trump comments were reported, the President has stated that he is “the least racist person,” which only serves up some more comedy fodder for O’Brien to use on Conan Without Borders.
While most travel shows are apolitical, Conan is turning that tired old way of doing things on its head and people love it. In 2017, O’Brien mocked President Trump’s fight for a border wall by visiting Mexico for an episode of Conan Without Borders.

In that hilarious episode, he had some help skewering Trump from Diego Luna and Twitter’s favorite former president of Mexico Vincente Fox. Fox is famous for sending funny tweets to Donald Trump, many of them letting Trump know in a myriad of colorful ways that Mexico is not paying for that wall he wants so badly.
Maybe the best way for Trump to prove he isn’t racist isn’t to keep insisting he isn’t but rather to stop saying such racist and incendiary things? Just a thought that the President of the United States might want to consider.
