(KGTV) -- President Donald Trump's speech to a large Pennsylvania rally prompted a former presidential adviser to call it divisive and "deeply disturbing."

"This was the most divisive speech I have ever heard from a sitting American president," said David Gergen. Gergen served during the administrations of Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, and Bill Clinton.

"He played to his base and he treated his other listeners, the rest of the people who have been disturbed about him or opposed him, he treated them basically as, 'I don't give a damn what you think because you're frankly like the enemy.' I thought it was a deeply disturbing speech," Gergen said.




10 memorable lines from comedian Hasan Minhaj at the WHCA dinner

On being a minority in America:

"That's why you gotta be on your 'A' game," Minhaj told the press. "You gotta be twice as good. You can't make any mistakes, because when one of you messes up he blames your entire group. ... And now you know what it feels like to be a minority."


"Don, every time I watch your show, I feel like I'm watching a reality TV show. 'CNN Tonight' should just be called 'Wait a second! Now hold on! Stop yelling at each!' with Don Lemon."

On Trump's frequent golfing outings:

"Every time Trump goes golfing, the headline should read, 'Trump golfing. Apocalypse delayed. Take the W.' "

On Kellyanne Conway and 'alternative facts':

"Even if you guys groan, I've already hired Kellyanne Conway. She's gonna go on TV Monday and tell everyone I 'killed.' It really doesn't matter."

On Frederick Douglass:

"Frederick Douglass isn't here, and that's because. He's dead. Someone please tell the President!"

'Not the White House Correspondents' Dinner' team was as thrilled about cameos as you

"Full Frontal" correspondents Ashley Nicole Black, Amy Hoggart, and Mike Rubens were less than an hour removed from an event that's been in the works for months, and their joy was still palpable.

Samantha Bee's "Not the White House Correspondents' Dinner" was an idea born last November, when the future of the actual White House Correspondents' Dinner was in question.

On Saturday, their work came to fruition at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington D.C., where Bee and the team presented a 90-minute ode to journalism in the age of President Donald Trump.
