‘Like watching grandpa do the Electric Slide at a wedding’: Seth Meyers mocks Trump’s klutzy Saudi sword dance

Published

on

President Donald Trump had a bust weekend in Saudi Arabia — curtsying for the Saudi king, dancing with a sword, touching a mysterious glowing orb — therefore “Late Show” host Seth Meyers had wealth of material to work with.

Noting that Trump headed overseas as another rash of White House controversies exploded in the U.S. — with Meyers suggesting puckishly, “That dude is not coming back” — the late night comedian focused on the sword dance in particular.

After mentioning the gold medal given to Trump — that occasioned the now-famous #TrumpCurtsy — Meyers pointed out that the president was also given a sword.

‘The Saudis even gave Trump a sword,” Meyers explained, “as part of an elaborate ceremony with which Trump participated in a traditional Saudi sword-dance — and he looked very uncomfortable.”

Meyers then showed a clip of Trump awkwardly bobbing off the beat with fellow sword dancers.

“It’s like watching your grandpa do the Electric Slide at a wedding — but with a deadly weapon,” Meyers said by way of a dead-on description.

Fox legal analyst: Ukraine scandal is ‘far more serious’ than what Mueller dug up on Trump

Published

Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano on Monday told Fox Business host David Asman that President Donald Trump's now-infamous phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is a serious case of corruption that cannot be ignored.

Although Asman tried to make the story about the actions of former Vice President Joe Biden's son, Napolitano said that what Trump has done appears far worse than anything the former vice president did.

"This is the most serious charge against the president, far more serious than what Bob Mueller dug or dragged up against him," Napolitano said. "If there was a quid pro quo -- it does appear as though a quarter of a billion dollars in defensive weaponry was held back for a period of time while these... conversations were going on between the presidents."
