WATCH: Seth Meyers rips apart ‘lazy wannabe-dictator’ Trump over his attacks on the First Amendment
During his “Closer Look” segment on Wednesday, Seth Meyers slammed “lazy wannabe-dictator” Donald Trump over the president’s constant barrage of attacks on the First Amendment.
Referencing Trump’s repeated assertions that media “licenses must be challenged and revoked” (something that cannot happen), Meyers noted the president spent his Wednesday lamenting “the fact that the United States has a free press.”
During an Oval Office visit with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Trump said it’s “frankly disgusting” that the press can write “whatever it wants,” arguing “people should look into.”
Meyers argued that statement is a clear sign the president is “lazy wannabe dictator.”
“It’s not that hard to look into it, it’s literally the First Amendment,” Meyers said, later adding “it’s one sentence dude.”
Pointing out that members of Trump’s own party, like Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN), have taken to calling out the president’s erratic behavior, Meyers joked, “so you all know he’s a bad guy, buy you don’t want to tell the rest of us? Do you work in Congress or on the board of the Weinstein Company?”
