Conan O’Brien took a look Wednesday at the weirdness between Donald Trump and Denmark — and enlisted the help of the Property Brothers to make sense of it all.
After reports that Trump has asked aides about the possibility of the U.S. purchasing Greenland from Denmark, Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen called the idea “absurd.” In response, Trump canceled an upcoming scheduled trip to Denmark, saying he did so because of “Frederiksen’s comments, that she would have no interest in discussing the purchase of Greenland.” Then on Wednesday, he called Frederiksen “nasty.”
But as O’Brien sees it, a U.S. purchase of Greenland is a “great idea.” So to make sure the deal goes through, he brought in Drew and Jonathan Scott, the Property Brothers, via satellite to help him get the best deal.
He asked Drew if Greenland was a good buy. “I checked it out, your nearest neighbors are Canada and Iceland, and they’re both pretty quiet,” Drew replied.
Asked how Greenland is structurally, Jonathan said he “went over to Greenland just to take a look,” and suggested O’Brien “knock out this glacier,” then “add a kitchen island,” and “maybe knock this mountain out here so you’d have more natural light coming in from the north side.” Great advice!
There’s plenty more and it’s pretty funny — certainly funnier than the diplomatic incident that inspired it. Watch it above.
