In an extended monologue on Wednesday, “Late Night” host Seth Meyers nailed why the Trump administration is really just a group of “eighth grade girls,” detailing how the president’s team deflect and backstab like teenagers.
Noting Jeff Sessions’ repeated claims he “does not recall” his contacts with Russian and other elements reportedly under investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller, Meyers argued the Trump team’s “only defense is literally that they were too incompetent to collude.”
“You’re talking about a presidential campaign and you’re making it sound like a prom committee,” Meyers joked. “We sent Ashley to get crepe paper and she came back with toilet paper, then the band backed out at the last second, and that’s why Ashley met with the Russians!”
Meyers later turned to new accusations against top Trump aide and son-in-law Jared Kushner who reportedly forwarded an email from WikiLeaks to Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr., despite telling investigators—under oath—he had no knowledge of the campaign’s correspondence with the self-proclaimed transparency organization.
“All of this doesn’t necessarily prove collusion, but think about it like this: if Debbie says she didn’t go to Karen’s house, but it turns out she was at Karen’s house, and Sheila says she wasn’t at Karen’s house, and it turns out she was at Karen’s house, eventually you gotta wonder: What the f*ck is going on at Karen’s house?” Meyers riffed.
“It’s so amazing that these two are the ones that fell ass-backwards into a potential criminal conspiracy,” Meyers said, referring to Trump Jr. and Kushner. “I can’t believe I’m saying this, but maybe Eric is the smart one.”
Referencing reports that Kushner failed to disclose the existence of a private email server, Meyers blasted top Trump officials for “doing everything they attacked Hillary for!”
“We’re like a week away from Kushner losing his mind over some balloons,” Meyers said.
The “Late Night” host pointed to a Vanity Fair article that quoted a White House aide telling reporters: “Jared is the worst political adviser in the White House in modern history. I’m only saying publicly what everyone says behind the scenes at Fox News, in conservative media, and in the Senate and Congress.”
“When you put the slightest amount of pressure on them, the Trump team stabs back like eighth grade girls,” Meyers said.
“Everybody knows Jared is shadier than S” he continued. “Oh, hi Jared! Are you going to the party? It’s at Karen’s house.”
Trump supporter complains about being socially toxic: ‘People unfriend you’
Fox News anchor Jeanine Pirro on Saturday complained about being judged by the content of her character.
"People unfriend you!' Pirro complained. "They don't want you to be a -- they don't want to communicate with you."
"People I've had at my wedding don't talk -- my children's weddings actually, they don't talk to me anymore," she explained.
"It's not usually the right or the left, I mean, the intolerance is on the left," she argued.
The longtime Trump friend was harshly criticized for her complaints. Here's some of what people were saying:
Trump disappointed conservative media isn’t praising him enough for letting Roger Stone walk: report
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.
