Seth Meyers slams Trump’s Meals on Wheels cuts: Your heart is so small it makes your hands look big

Published

on

President Donald Trump is having a bad week and seems to be taking it out on everyone, “Late Night” host Seth Meyers explained Thursday. Perhaps that’s why his budget blueprint was so heartless.

Trump’s approvals on health care are anemic at best, a recent Fox News poll revealed. At the same time, his own party is attacking him on health care, his wiretap claims and more. Meyers played a May 2016 clip of Trump saying that Americans would win so much they “would get sick and tired of winning.”

“Are you sick of winning yet?” Meyers asked. “Because if you are you better get to the doctor before Trump takes away your health care.”

Trump then pivoted to begging for applause by bashing Hillary Clinton. “Wow, you guys are still doing ‘lock her up,'” Meyers noted. “But hey, I get it, when you go see Billy Joel you want to hear ‘Piano Man.'”

He went on to note that Trump told his crowd “some of you were bad students” but that even they could understand what he was going to explain to them. “I love how Trump is willing to go in front of his voters and tell them, ‘Some of you are idiots,'” Meyers joked.

He said that it reminds of a famous John F. Kennedy quote and played a video of a fake JFK address in which Kennedy said “Ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country. And if you’re too stupid to understand that ask a friend what I mean. Then ask yourself why you’re so dumb. And if you can’t answer that, you’re an idiot.”

He went on to mock Trump for trying to pivot to taxes, admitting that he wished they could have started with taxes first but had to get through repealing and replacing Obamacare. Interestingly, Trump himself said that the first thing he would do on day one of his administration was repeal and replace Obamacare.

Trump then went on Fox News and spread a conspiracy theory that former President Barack Obama set up Obamacare to fall apart in 2017. Meyers found the theory unbelievable that Obama would design his signature policy to collapse in just six years.

Meyers explained that Trump’s bill is falling apart because it crushes rural white voters who voted for Trump. When asked about it, Trump even admitted it. “For any other president it would be a smoking gun, but for Trump it’s a guy smoking. ‘Yeah I know. I know. F*ck ’em.'”

Just when things couldn’t possibly get worse, Trump unveiled a budget blueprint that made things even worse for Trump’s supporters. He said he saw cuts to the EPA coming and even the National Endowment for the Arts but the cuts to Meals on Wheels were absurd.

“Meals on Wheels?!?” Meyer exclaimed. “How dead inside do you have to be to not want old people to get food? Your heart is so small it makes your tiny hands look like catcher’s mitts. Old people voted for you! Your key demographics were old people and older people. They believed you when you said you cared about them. There’s nothing more low-life than lying to the elderly. You should know that. You’re 70.”

E. Jean Carroll’s rape allegations against Trump exposed a depressing fact about the American public — according to this conservative

Published

on

This week, former advice columnist E. Jean Carroll published explosive allegations that President Donald Trump had raped her in a department store in the 1990s. In response, the President tweeted that she was "not his type" and that he'd never met her.

As the Democratic debates begin, media commenters wondered why a credible accusation of rape against a sitting President is not enough to permanently sink his chances at re-election, with some blaming the media for moving on too fast.

Writing in the conservative publication The Bulwark, Jonathan V. Last notes that the media did its job. And that it's the US public that lacks the moral compass to ditch the president, despite multiple allegations of sexual assault.

Democrats win huge emoluments clause Trump violations suit

Published

on

Congressional Democrats are being allowed to forge ahead with their emoluments case against Trump after a federal ruling landed in their favor Tuesday. Democrats are expected to now begin obtaining financial records from the Trump Organization.

The Wall Street Journal reported that U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan denied a request from Justice Department lawyers to pause the case to allow an immediate appeal to a higher court in a setback for the president. The Justice Department said it would make an emergency plea directly to an appeals court in Washington, a long-shot legal tactic that is rarely granted in ordinary litigation.
