On Monday night's edition of Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, the Daily Show alum invited David Tennant -- best known for his role as the Tenth Doctor on Doctor Who -- to read aloud tweets written by his fellow Scots after Donald Trump mistook them for English.

In his press conference following the Brexit vote on Friday, Trump said that the Scottish "were taking their country back," to which Bee replied, "oh boy, you just confused England and Scotland -- they love that."


"I wish I had a real Scotsman to read [Scottish Twitter's] tweets to you," she added. At that point, Tennant appeared onscreen and proceeded to do just that. As it's difficult to type with a Scottish accent, it's probably best if you simply watch the segment itself:
