Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is still making a mad dash for disaffected Bernie Sanders voters, but he doesn’t actually want to have anything to do with them.
After Sanders’ speech at the Democratic National Convention on Monday night, Trump tweeted that he was sad to see Sanders abandon his movement, but assured Bernie fans he was welcoming them with open arms. That same day, however, he mocked a protester at his rally he claimed as a Bernie supporter.
“That’s okay, don’t worry about it,” Trump told his audience. “That’s the dying remnants of a Bernie person. That’s the last of ’em! No! We’re going to get Bernie people coming here,” Trump said. “We’re gonna get Bernie people coming here. Yeah, you can get him out, go ahead. That’s alright.”
Seriously? “We’re gonna win Bernie supporters,” Meyers said in his Trump voice. “Now forcibly remove that Bernie supporter from our rally. That’s the last of ’em! There’s none left! And they’re voting for me.”
While the first night of the DNC was dedicated to the new stars of the Democratic Party like Corey Booker and Elizabeth Warren, along with Sanders, Tuesday night was like “old home” night. Meyers showed Howard Dean’s homage to the 2004 Dean scream. Meyers was sad he didn’t get the actual scream in the end. “That is not that long ago. Remember when acting crazy on TV was a liability, instead of, you know, a platform,” he said, flashing Trump’s photo on the screen.
“Every time Howard Dean watches Trump speak he must go, ‘I yelled one time. I yelled one time and everybody thought I was crazy.’ Although, maybe Howard Dean didn’t give us the scream last night because he was saving it for Meryl Streep,” Meyers said, showing the clip of Streep screaming out on Tuesday night. “Look for Meryl starring in ‘The Howard Dean Story.’ There is no part she cannot play.”
Meyers poked fun at former President Bill Clinton, who walked us through the history of his relationship with his wife. All the years. Meyers put together a compilation of each time Clinton said a year to show off the former president’s lengthy speech.
“You know, it is really nice and sweet that Bill and Hillary have known each other so long, but as it dragged on, you saw the benefits of a speech from a recent spouse,” Meyers said, showing Melania Trump’s photo.
Clinton then appeared on screen while music continued to play in the convention hall, concerning many that Clinton might be about to “bust some rhymes.” Meyers explained that if Clinton actually did rap, “she would make everyone’s mom look like Kendrick Lamar. Because you know 100 percent she would start out, ‘My name is Hillary and I’m here to say.'”
The biggest question, however, is what has Trump been up to while the DNCC is going on in Philadelphia. Instead of catching up one some sleep after the RNC, he was busy asking Russia to hack Hillary Clinton’s emails. “Not sure why Trump would openly ask Russia to spy on Americans, but I’m sure he has his treasons,” Meyers joked.
Meyers explained that, while many Republicans have denounced the statements and some think that Trump could be a secret Russian spy, he’s far too obvious about it. “He’s like a guy interviewing for a job at a bank who says, ‘You have a lot of money and I want to steal it and it would just be easier if I worked here.'”
At the top of the show, Meyers mocked Bernie Sanders supporters, who marched through the streets of Philadelphia with a giant joint. He said it was ridiculous because everyone knows that if you have that much weed, you make brownies. In all seriousness, Meyers said he thought that the election couldn’t get any crazier, but then Trump went onstage and asked Russia to hack into his opponents email server. “You know what, Bernie supporters, I think you guys were right all along. Bring that thing over here, come on.”

‘Women didn’t like that’: Fox News host grills GOP chairwoman after Trump interrupts ‘145 times’ at debate
Fox News host Sandra Smith pressed Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel on Thursday over the idea that President Donald Trump could be punished with a "mute button" after he repeatedly interrupted Democratic candidate Joe Biden at Tuesday's presidential debate.
During an interview on Fox News, Smith noted that the Commission on Presidential Debates is considering changing the rules due to the constant interruptions at the first debate between Biden and Trump.
"At any point when you were watching the debate, did you wish that perhaps President Trump didn't jump in there as much as he did?" Smith wondered.
Rod Rosenstein secretly crippled the Mueller investigation: report
According to a report from the New York Times, former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had a hand in limiting the scope of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into ties between Donald Trump's 2016 campaign and the Russians by secretly curtailing an FBI counterintelligence probe.
The report from Michael Schmidt of the Times begins by stating, "The Justice Department secretly took steps in 2017 to narrow the investigation into Russian election interference and any links to the Trump campaign, according to former law enforcement officials," before adding, "But law enforcement officials never fully investigated Mr. Trump’s own relationship with Russia, even though some career F.B.I. counterintelligence investigators thought his ties posed such a national security threat that they took the extraordinary step of opening an inquiry into them."
