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.

Fox News hosts are going back to downplaying threat from coronavirus: report

Published

on

Major Fox News personalities like Sean Hannity spent weeks assuring viewers that the novel coronavirus wasn't a serious threat. In recent weeks, however, they have shifted to a different narrative, acknowledging that the virus is dangerous but giving President Donald Trump credit for taking action and criticizing Democrats' lack of action — even though many Democrats, in fact, warned the pubic first.

But according to The Daily Beast, even as there is no clear end to the crisis in sight, and even as the U.S. crosses 13,000 deaths, many Fox News hosts are going back to downplaying the virus, either telling viewers it wasn't as bad as advertised and urging the president to end public safety measures against it.

The dangers of Trump TV: MSNBC host hammers Fox News as ‘genuine public health threat’ amid pandemic

Published

on

Tuesday night, Fox News decided that all anyone needed to do is to pump Americans with a Malaria drug and send them back to work to save President Donald Trump's economy.

Speaking Wednesday night, MSNBC host Chris Hayes bashed the conservative network for downplaying the seriousness of coronavirus, saying that they are "a genuine public health threat."

While Trump has advisers like Dr. Anthony Fauci, he also has the unofficial advisers he sees on Fox News.

They "are coalescing around the idea the whole thing is just overblown and we need to pump everyone full of the malaria drug and get them back to work. This is what you heard if you watch trump tv just last night," Hayes said. He then played clips illustrating exactly that, with hosts ranting and raving about the virus not being as serious as the flu.

‘Don’t let him rewrite history’: GOP ex-congressman slams Trump for painting fewer than 100,000 COVID-19 deaths as a victory

Published

on

At Wednesday's coronavirus task force press conference, President Donald Trump reiterated his claim that if fewer than 100,000 Americans die from COVID-19, it will be a victory for him.

Former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) had none of it.

He ignored the warnings. He ignored the scientists & doctors. He refused to prepare. He lied about the virus. This country wasn’t ready. People got sick. People died. People lost their jobs. Because he cared more about himself than the country.

Don’t let him rewrite history. https://t.co/9snqoJ1VQI
