The most popular theory was that the president could be wearing dentures or other dental prosthetics, and the country’s late-night hosts, including Trevor Noah and James Corden, did not brush off the speculations during their monologues Wedneday. The Daily Show‘s Noah had #DentureDonald trending on social media after tweeting, “Trump announces that the U.S. will recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and all hell breaks loose between his tongue and teeth. #DentureDonald.” Noah, 33, told viewers: “We all know what’s going on here. President Donald Trump is wearing dentures, people. This used to happen to my grandfather all the time. His dentures would start falling out and he wouldn’t be able to finish his sentence. Think about it: Have you seen Trump eat an apple or a pear? Or fruits and vegetables of any kind? Think about it. Fake teeth, fake hair, fake tan. There’s no part of his body that’s real.
