Late Night host Seth Meyers got in a shotat White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway for going on TV Monday morning to dismiss the importance of President Donald Trump’s tweets by digging into his own video archives and pulling evidence to the contrary.
That evidence? An interview he conducted with Conway in January where she stressed how vital Trump’s tweets are to reaching out to the public.
Noting that Conway blamed the media for paying undue attention to Trump’s tweets, Meyers first shared a clip of the combative Conway on the Today Show Monday morning, lamenting the “obsession with covering everything [President Donald Trump] says on Twitter, and not what he does as president.”
“The reason the press covers very little of what Trump does as president is because, as president, he does very little,” Meyers quipped.
“I’ll give her this: Kellyanne Conway has always been very clear Twitter is not Trump’s way to communicate with the public. If she had said otherwise, I would know,” Meyers continued before running a clip of Conway on his show in January.
“It’s his way to communicate directly with the people,” the Conway of January stated.
“Dammit,” Meyers exclaimed after the clip. “I really have to start watching my own show.”

Trump has figured out how to get taxpayers to renovate one of his golf courses: MSNBC panel
President Donald Trump has figured out how to have taxpayers pay to renovate his Trump National Doral Miami golf course, according to an analysis by MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle.
"Before setting himself on fire on Ukraine yesterday, Mick Mulvaney came into the White House briefing room to break to the nation the fact the that the Trump Doral golf resort turns out to be -- in his estimation, organically, just sitting there -- the best possible place to have a G-7 Summit of world leaders," MSNBC's Brian Williams reported. "That was provision number one. There’s no better place that we can find. Number two was, the president will not profit from said G-7."
Bill Maher reveals plan to ‘bribe’ Trump with one billion dollars — for him to leave office
The Constitution has two mechanisms to remove President Donald Trump from office prior to his term ending on January 20, 2021: impeachment and the 25th Amendment.
HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher noted that Trump could also choose to resign.
Maher waved around a $1 million check that he said he would give to Trump to quit.
He said he also knew 1,000 people who would do the same -- which would land Trump over $1 billion.
Maher said even poor people would pawn their wedding rings to add to the pot.
Trump can’t fire Mulvaney because nobody else wants to be his chief of staff: report
White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney will likely stay on at the White House despite his public confession of a quid pro quo in the Ukraine scandal at the center of the impeachment inquiry, The New York Times reported Friday.
"But Mr. Mulvaney’s job has been anything but normal since the news conference on Thursday at which he seemingly undermined the Trump administration’s strategy for avoiding impeachment by acknowledging that Mr. Trump had sought a quid pro quo for providing Ukraine with American aid," the newspaper reported. "In the chaotic aftermath, the president’s Republican allies are questioning Mr. Mulvaney’s savvy and intelligence even as the Trump campaign is defiantly turning one of his lines from the news conference into a T-shirt."
