Seth Meyers came out and said it Wednesday.

"No one takes the president of the United States seriously," the "Late Night" host told his viewers. "They have to brief him via limerick."

The NBC host called Trump a "human bullhorn" who is incapable of navigating the delicate diplomacy required to deescalate the situation with North Korea, whose nuclear weapon capabilities are expanding. 

"Trump is talking tough on North Korea," Meyers said, but the president is "temperamentally unfit" to handle the situation. 

Meyers mocked Trump's Twitter diplomacy and highlighted a Chinese leader's description of his tweets as "emotional venting."

He also took issue with the president's inability to filter himself, mentioning Trump's recent tweet that linked to a report with classified information U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley had previously refused to discuss.
