Seth Meyers admits he’s always wrong about Trump: Maybe he’ll be ‘a great f*cking president’

Published

Seth Meyers was as stunned by Donald Trump’s election win, and he shared his thoughts in an emotional but hilarious monologue.

“Well, that was a real grab in the pussy,” Meyers said.

He teared up as he described his mother’s profound disappointment that Hillary Clinton lost, and Meyers tried to find a ray of hope in his consistently wrong view of Trump.

“I’ve been wrong about him at every turn,” Meyers said. “When he first came down the escalator, and I boldly said on this show (that) it was a stunt and he would never really run. I then said he would never win the GOP nomination, and I certainly didn’t think he’d be our next president. But the good news is, based on this pattern of me being wrong on every one of my Donald Trump predictions, he’s probably going to be a great f*cking president.”

Meyers said he understood that many Trump voters felt the same dismay and fear about President Barack Obama, and he hoped that the new president would not forget them after his inauguration — but he also hoped those same voters would stand up against hatred.

“One thing that makes me hopeful (is) we know from interviews he’s given over the years that he has, at any given point, held every position on every issue,” Meyers said. “Pretty much his only consistent position has been anti-Rosie O’Donnell.”

Meyers is hopeful that Trump isn’t actually a racist, but was only acting like one in the courtship phase of the election — the way men will go apple picking with a new girlfriend but refuse to go again once they’re officially a couple.

“Let me make it clear, I am in no way trying to say that racism is as bad as apple picking,” Meyers said.

Meyers suspected no one was as surprised by Trump’s win as Trump himself, and he begged the president-elect to take an offer from NBC to host another season of “The Apprentice.”

“This offer stands until Inauguration Day — think about it,” Meyers said.

These 7 details from the damning Sharpiegate report show it was a dark omen of Trump’s destructive potential

Published

on

While it was dismissed by some as an overhyped media obsession, the presidential scandal that has come to be known as "Sharpiegate" was, in fact, an early warning sign of the truly catastrophic potential of Donald Trump.

The story arose out of Hurricane Dorian, which began its deliberate march up toward the East Coast of the United States in late August and early September of 2019. It ravaged the Bahamas, and officials feared the damage it could inflict stateside. But then came a Trump tweet on Sept. 1, and later comments to reporters, in which he warned that Alabama was in the storm's path. He said it was among the states "most likely be hit (much) harder than anticipated."

"The data, which for the first time breaks down the number of people in the hospital with coronavirus, was promised by the state two weeks ago," the report explained.

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace asks why Bill Barr is trying to ‘erase Robert Mueller’s investigation’ before November

Published

on

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace returned to television Friday night to address what she called outright corruption in the Trump White House after another example of the president trying to escape the consequences of the law.

Wallace began by calling Attorney General William Barr nothing more than Trump's "bouncer."

"He has been intellectually overestimated from day one. He is not a mastermind of anything," said Wallace. "He is Donald Trump's body man."

She cited "well-sourced spin" coming from the White House Friday evening, because there were people that she said were "enlisted" with trying to talk Trump out of commuting Roger Stone's sentence. She anticipated that Barr and White House Counsel Pat Cipollone may huff and puff about the act, but that they won't quit over it. "And we should remember their names forever. They are all accomplices in the greatest corruption of one of the most sacred powers."
