Seth Meyers mocks Trump’s Miss Universe obsession: ‘Nothing creepier than hanging around beauty pageants’

Published

on

Donald Trump has kept the focus all week on his blunder during the first presidential debate, Seth Meyers said — all while insisting he performed better than Hillary Clinton.

“Rather than move on from the debate, Trump and his supporters have insisted on continuing to argue about some of his worst moments, like when he cryptically hinted that he was going to attack Hillary for her husband’s affairs, but decided not to because he’s such a great guy,” Meyers said. “Trump’s campaign has been demanding that we give him credit for that — all while bringing up the exact thing he said he would not bring up.”

Trump’s son, Eric, praised his dad’s “courage” for not bringing up Clinton’s marriage during the debate, although the Republican presidential nominee and his surrogates have spent days talking about it on TV and during campaign events.

“Yes, such courage, he didn’t attack Hillary for her husband’s affairs — what a hero. Someone should give him a trophy,” Meyers said, as a photo of Trump and his third wife, Melania, appeared onscreen. “Oh, that’s right — he already has one.”

Meyers took a moment to appreciate Clinton burning Trump for his love of beauty pageants, reminding voters that he really liked “hanging around” those contests.

“There’s really nothing creepier than someone who hangs around beauty pageants,” Meyers said.

Clinton’s reminded voters that Trump had repeatedly and publicly bullied the Miss Universe winner while he owned that contest, and Meyers said that was a low point for the GOP candidate during the debate.

His campaign wanted to move on from the issue, but Trump instead spent days continuing to attack the former beauty queen and her weight — all while painting himself as the victim of unfair treatment.

“Can you imagine Donald Trump, of all people, ending up in a position like this?” Meyers said. “Why do bad things happen to good people?”

Jeffrey Epstein’s IT consultant reveals he saw girls who ‘couldn’t have more than 15 or 16’ on private island

Published

ABC News broke a story just after midnight Thursday about a former IT consultant of Jeffrey Epstein's who resigned because he couldn't take some of the things he was seeing on Epstein's private island compound.

The island, which has been called "pedophile island" by locals, had "topless women everywhere.

"There were photos of topless women everywhere," said contractor Steve Scully, who began working for Epstein in 1999 and continued for six years. "On his desk, in his office, in his bedroom."

‘Names are going to start coming out’: New report says more elites will be exposed in the Epstein case — and ‘DC is on edge’

Published

Will other powerful people — presumably men — get taken down as a result of the sex trafficking case against Jeffrey Epstein?

That’s the hope of many closer followers of the story, but it’s far from clear what, if any, fallout there will be. Epstein’s connections to Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump have raised suspicions about potential evidence of their wrongdoing, such suspicions remain unproven. Alan Dershowitz has already faced accusations of being involved in Epstein’s crimes, though he denies the charge vigorously.

But a new report from Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman says that “DC is on edge” over the Epstein case, and any elites who have run in his circles could be involved. Dozens of girls, if not more, are believed to be involved in his alleged sex trafficking, and lawyers for some of the women who have accused Epstein are strongly suggesting that other high-profile figures will be implicated.

‘It’s so un-American’: Internet scorches Trump supporters for racist chants of ‘Send her back!’

Published

on

The ignoble highlight of President Donald Trump's rally in Greenville, North Carolina on Wednesday was when his fans doubled down on his racist attacks on four Democratic congresswomen of color and targeted Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), chanting "Send her back! Send her back!"

Political commentators of all stripes were gobsmacked by the crowd's naked racism — and buried them in condemnation:

The crowd at Trump’s rally chanting “send her back” after the President viciously and dishonestly attacked Ilhan Omar is one of the most chilling and horrifying things I’ve ever seen in politics.
