Seth Meyers blasts Tillerson’s ‘moron’ about-face: ‘When your name is Rex, you’re gonna be good at rolling over’

What’s more embarrassing — that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson go caught calling President Donald Trump an “effing moron,” or that he held a press conference calling him “smart” the next day?

Late Night‘s Seth Meyers explored the conundrum during Thursday’s “A Closer Look” segment about the latest bit of Trump palace intrigue in which Tillerson reportedly told multiple national security advisers and cabinet members that he thought the president is a “moron.”

“Tillerson, of course, was forced to issue a statement at a hastily-arranged press conference yesterday where he took the extraordinary step of trying to assure the American people that the president is not, in fact, a moron,” Meyers said.

“Let me tell you what I’ve learned about this president, whom I did not know before taking this office,” Tillerson said at the press conference. “He loves this country. He puts Americans and America first. He’s smart.”

Meyers, shaking his head, disparaged the situation.

“Man, to think a guy’s a moron and then be forced to publicly say he’s smart,” Meyers said. “I guess when your name is Rex, you’re gonna be good at rolling over.”

Published

President Donald Trump has been disappointed in right-wing media for not giving him more credit for pardoning longtime advisor Roger Stone.

"A senior administration official said there were serious divisions among Trump’s aides and allies over Stone’s case, with some cautioning that keeping him out of prison could be politically risky. Among those opposed was Attorney General William P. Barr, who called the prosecution 'righteous' in an interview Wednesday with ABC News, the official said, adding that those pushing Trump to show loyalty to Stone included Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), who is close to the president," The Washington Post reported Saturday.
