Watch: Seth Meyers calls out the GOP for hiding their ‘mean, son of a b*tch’ health care bill

Published

on

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.

Trump’s racism is ‘disqualifying’ for him to remain as president: former White House lawyer

Published

on

Former acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal explained on MSNBC on Thursday why he viewed President Donald Trump's racist attacks on four women of color in Congress as disqualifying.

Anchor Brian Williams read a quote from Susan Glasser of The New Yorker.

"Half of the country is appalled but not really sure how to combat him; the other half is cheering, or at least averting its gaze. This is what a political civil war looks like, with words, for now, as weapons," Glasser wrote.

Lawrence O’Donnell reports on the growing movement for the impeachment of President Donald Trump

Published

on

Anchor Lawrence O'Donnell reported on the growing movement for the impeachment of President Donald Trump during Thursday evening's "The Last Word" on MSNBC.

"The House of Representatives conducted a symbolic vote on a hastily written impeachment resolution by Democratic Congressman Al Green in reaction to the president’s tweeted comments that the House of Representatives voted to condemn as racist," O'Donnell reported. "The impeachment resolution had nothing to do with the [Robert] Mueller investigation and referred only to the president being unfit for office because of the language that he has used recently about members of Congress and immigrants and asylum seekers."

Video proves how far the Trump’s GOP has gone from the era of Ronald Reagan and HW Bush

Published

on

The immigration policies of Donald Trump’s presidency would have no room for his GOP predecessors Ronald Reagan or George H.W. Bush—who both embraced work visas, family unification, easy border crossings and a better relationship with Mexico.

That counterpoint can be seen in a very short video clip from the 1980 presidential election where Reagan and Bush—who became Reagan’s vice president for two terms before winning the presidency in 1988—were asked about immigration at a campaign debate in Texas. Their responses show just how far to the right the Republican Party’s current leader, President Trump, and voters who have not left the GOP to become self-described political independents, have moved on immigration.
