The affable Meyers, with his dry wit and politically inflected comedy, is, in many ways, this generation's Cavett: Both cut their teeth in show business as actors, both have hosted the Emmys and both have inspired the wrath of dubious politicians (although only one of them was name-checked more than two dozen times on the Nixon White House tapes).

But if you've followed the trajectory of Mr. Meyers, 43, who made an affable anchor of the "Weekend Update" segment on "Saturday Night Live" and led the 2011 White House Correspondents' Association Dinner, where Mr. Trump spent the night being pummeled with caustic one-liners, then you know he did not plan to hold his tongue in Ms. Conway's presence.
