The President of the United States last weekend reverted to vintage Donald Trump: ranting about his election victory at a rally in Florida, demanding a journalist’s resignation on Twitter, and spending hours watching TV while telling the New York Times he definitely doesn’t have time to watch TV (primarily because of the documents, remember?).
NBC’s Seth Meyers on Monday was unimpressed with Trump’s antics, telling the president to “get over” his electoral college win. The “Late Night” host joked Trump is “like a guy who threw one touchdown in high school and tells the story to everybody who comes into his bar.”
“He’s the Buddy Garrity of American politics!” Meyers said.
The host later brought up Trump’s attacks on Washington Post reporter David Weigel, who the president demanded be fired after he tweeted—and apologized for—a tweet inaccurately portraying Trump’s rally crowd size. “Our colicky man-baby president wouldn’t shut up about it,” Meyers explained.
“I’m not sure getting fired for false tweets is really a precedent you of all people want to set,” Meyers quipped.
“Trump lies as often as he breathes,” he added.

‘Ridiculous’ for Trump’s team to ‘feed people this line’ that Ukraine didn’t know about the frozen aid: CNN contributor
President Donald Trump and his associates have recently tried a new defense for the Ukraine scandal, claiming that there couldn't have been a quid pro quo because the Ukrainians were supposedly unaware of the military aid freeze the Trump apparently ordered to force them to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden.
On Wednesday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," Washington Post journalist David Swerdlick and his co-panelists smacked down that narrative.
"The New York Times reports that the Ukrainians learned in early August that aid was frozen and they were told to reach out to the acting White House Chief of Staff, Mick Mulvaney," said anchor Wolf Blitzer.
