Comedian Seth Meyers spent part of his Thursday show mocking President Donald Trump and his attorney for insisting that former FBI Director James Comey proved that he was not under investigation. After a Washington Post report Wednesday, it was revealed that Trump is now personally under investigation.
“Trump is the king of spiking the ball at the sixth-yard line,” Meyers said.
Remembering how we got here, Meyers explained that Comey assured Trump he was not under investigation. Trump asked Comey to say that publicly but he wouldn’t, so Trump fired him. Now Trump is under investigation.
“It’s one of the greatest self-owns in political history,” Meyers awarded. “How do I get rid of this boomerang? Oh, I know, I’ll throw it!”
To make matters worse, it appears Trump’s own team are trying to start the “you’re fired” train for special prosecutor Robert Mueller. Both Kellyanne Conway and Newt Gingrich have tweeted out their mistrust with Mueller and urged the president to fire him. Meyers unearthed a 1998 video of then-Speaker Gingrich attacking the White House for attempting to undermine the Justice Department.
“Susceptibility to rash action is a terrible quality for a president,” Meyers said. “Basically we’d end up in a war with North Korea if Kim Jong Un forgets Trump’s birthday.”
Meyers maintained that being fired is the last thing Mueller is afraid of. “He’s a veteran law enforcement officer not an employee at Jamba Juice!” Meyers said.
Meyers closed by calling out Republicans for hiding their health bill. Even Trump is criticizing the GOP’s health bill, calling it “mean, mean, mean” and “a son of a b*tch.” But when he has to speak about specifics, he’s a little thin on details. Meyers said Trump sounds like like the nightmare everyone had in high school that they had to give an oral report without studying for it.
But there is one thing Trump is right about, according to Meyers. The bill is mean and both sides of the political spectrum hate it equally.
