Seth Meyers scorches Trump’s inaction on the opioid crisis with brutal montage of president playing dress up
Seth Meyers on Tuesday destroyed Donald Trump’s lack of action in the opioid crisis, noting while the president promised to take on the epidemic, he’s instead been busy playing dress-up as a firefighter, truck driver and Saudi Arabian sword.
Meyers pointed out that Trump “promised he would devote additional resources to combating” opioid use in the United States during he campaign, “but when asked what his plan was for combatting the issue, he couldn’t help but make it all about himself.”
Meyers then played a clip of then-candidate Trump telling Morning Joe he’s “doing great in New Hampshire” and “having a lot of fun here” when asked about the epidemic.
“So just to clarify, his response to the opioid crisis is ‘I have friends and we have a lot of fun,’” Meyers said.
The “Late Night” host then assailed Trump for focusing on law enforcement crackdowns on undocumented immigrants when “the pills are coming from inside the house.” He also explained that while Trump promised billions in funding to combat opioid use, “the money he’s giving is less than the money he’s taking away” via Medicaid.
“So what’s Trump been busy doing instead?” Meyers asked, playing a brutal clip of the president playing dress up instead of solving the nation’s crisis.
“Man what is this, the Make-A-Wish presidency?” he asked.
