He gave lots of high-profile people a hard time: from President Barack Obama and Katie Couric to Donald Trump and Michael Bloomberg.

Here are some of the highlights:

"Donald Trump has said he's running for president as a Republican -- which is surprising because I thought he was running as a joke."

"Donald Trump often appears on Fox, which is ironic because a fox often appears on Donald Trump's head. If you're at the Washington Post table with Trump and you can't finish your entree, don't worry, the fox will eat it."

A jab at Sarah Palin: "Donald Trump owns the Miss USA pageant, which is great for Republicans because it will streamline their search for a vice president."

About Mr. President: "If your hair gets any whiter, the Tea Party is going to endorse it," he quipped. Seizing on Obama's sinking approval ratings, Meyers added, "I'll tell you who could beat you: 2008 Barack Obama. You would have loved him."

Needless to say Trump didn't crack a smile the whole night (Obama seemed more light-hearted, laughing along at the table he shared with Obama). The fox-haired presidential campaign candidate (maybe?) called Meyers a "stuterrer" when he spoke to Fox after the big night. Out of all insults?
