Seth Meyers pokes fun at Republican panic around the impeachment inquiry

On Thursday’s episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers, the host examined the US House of Representatives’ vote to endorse the impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump – a vote that many Republicans had insisted would not pass.

In fact, White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway appeared on Fox News claiming “[The Democrats] don’t have the votes” — a clip Meyers juxtaposed deliciously with various news bulletins announcing the vote had passed.

“What? We can’t trust Kellyanne Conway?” joked Meyers. “I guess up is up and down is down.”

Meyers also touched on the possibility that Trump’s ex-national security adviser John Bolton will be called to testify, which will be interesting considering their less than amicable split. Read more…

Seth Meyers explains why Trump can’t stop lying about that Alabama hurricane tweet

TwitterFacebook

We’re now several days into the Hurricane Dorian crisis threatening to engulf the nation — no, not the actual huge and destructive storm that made landfall in North Carolina on Thursday night. The president’s made clear that the much more pressing concern is that everyone knows his tweet claiming Dorian would impact Alabama was actually totally correct and not, in fact, extremely wrong.

Seth Meyers took a Closer Look at Trump’s pattern of aggressive, nonsensical lying and corncobbing whenever he’s clearly made a mistake but won’t admit it — from the “Tim Apple” incident to #Sharpiegate and his hilariously transparent denial of any knowledge about the doctored map. Read more…

Seth Meyers breaks down Trump’s attacks on Democrats running for president

TwitterFacebook

As Democrats begin to nominate for the 2020 presidential election, it’s beginning to get the attention of Donald Trump.

The president fired off a tweet in response to Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s announcement in Minnesota on Sunday, making fun of her bid to fight global warming, as snow piled on her.

That got the attention of Seth Meyers on his segment “A Closer Look” on Monday, who broke down Trump’s attacks on Dems who are running for president. In Klobuchar’s case, Meyers pointed out the president’s misguided global warming comment.

“Why do we have to keep explaining to the president of the United States that weather and climate are two different things?” Meyers asked. Read more…

Seth Meyers slams Virginia governor’s response to racist yearbook photo

TwitterFacebook

After a racist photo on his 1984 yearbook page surfaced on Friday, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam was called on to resign. So, he held a press conference to prove he’s not a racistIt didn’t go well.

It was almost too easy for Seth Meyers, who took “A Closer Look” at the controversy on Monday, and in particular, the governor’s backtracking on whether the image of a man wearing blackface, and another wearing a Ku Klux Klan hood, actually featured him. 

After apologising for being in the photo, Northam later changed his story, claiming he knew he wasn’t in it. Why? He pointed to another time he wore blackface, when he performed a Michael Jackson routine in a dance contest. Really. Read more…

Seth Meyers slams Trump’s ‘demeaning and sexist’ treatment of female reporters

TwitterFacebook

Late Night host Seth Meyers has slammed Donald Trump’s treatment of female reporters during Monday’s White House press conference, in which the president defended his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Multiple female reporters tried to ask Trump about FBI’s investigation into accusations of sexual abuse facing Kavanaugh, but as Meyers pointed out in his segment, “A Closer Look,” Trump “shot them down in super demeaning and sexist ways.” 

One of these moments happened when Trump called on ABC News’ Cecilia Vega, saying to her, “I know you’re not thinking, you never do.”

“I mean, how much of a sexist dick can you possibly be?” said Meyers.  Read more…

Seth Meyers shuts down Trump's wall by exposing the inconsistencies

TwitterFacebook

Seth Meyers is not sparing his words when it comes to Donald Trump. 

After slamming him for the “batshit crazy” press conference and the non-existent Swedish terror attack, the comedian used his most recent Closer Look segment to note the various and many inconsistencies about the president’s plan to build a wall on the US-Mexico border. 

First of all, there are reports saying more Mexicans are leaving the US than coming in. “That’s right, America has turned into a bad movie and people are walking out,” he said. 

Then, Trump faces the question about who will build the wall. And one particular developer and longtime friend of Trump, Jorge Perez, was not impressed by the offer he received. He told Bloomberg: “The wall is the most idiotic thing I’ve ever seen or heard in my life.”  Read more…

Seth Meyers has a lot of questions about Melania Trump's 'Vanity Fair' cover

Melania Trump’s cover for the Mexican edition of Vanity Fair, also known as the “diamond noodles heard ’round the world,” features the new First Lady twirling a bite of probably priceless spaghetti. 

Understandably, Seth Meyers has a lot of questions. For example, if one eats jewelry but also has it on, is one effectively wearing a bunch of snacks?

And we’ll add a question of our own: Since we can’t afford spaghetti diamonds, should we start wearing pretzels as earrings?
