Late Night host Seth Meyers on Thursday lambasted the GOP for “lavishing praise” on President Donald Trump over their tax cut bill.
The host played an awkward clip of Vice President Mike Pence heaping compliments onto the president while sitting directly across the table from him during a cabinet meeting. In the video, Trump watched Pence with his arms crossed, his mouth an emotionless thin line.
“Well I guess we know what Trump’s ‘o-face’ looks like,” Meyers quipped. “Look at him, even he’s like ‘Dude, I’m married.'”
After the meeting, Meyers continued, Pence “showed up at Trump’s door holding cue cards” a la “Love Actually.”

Tucker Carlson sends a dangerous signal to Trump as the right-wing normalizes abject criminality
Wednesday night's Democratic primary debate was perhaps the most anticipated of the 2020 election cycle so far, and it did not disappoint, with Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts demonstrating her ninja skills at eviscerating arrogant billionaires, in the form of former New York City mayor and attempted nomination-purchaser Mike Bloomberg. It was wholesome fun. It made people feel good. It dominated the cable news cycle and the headlines.
Maybe Michael Bloomberg wasn’t as awful as he looked
Call me crazy, but the media could have it wrong about Michael Bloomberg. The latest Democratic debate post-mortem came fast and furious – and from a prominent Op-Ed in The New York Times to the cover of The New York Post –and the verdict was almost unanimous.
Bloomberg was “disastrous.” His campaign had “imploded.” He “bombed.” Get the hook for “timid,” “defensive” Mini Mike, the pundits said. “Bye, Felicia” might be the only headline missing from the gleeful media pile-on of Bloomberg after he made his presidential debate debut.
The ‘pro-life swing voter’ some moderate Democrats chase is a myth
A thing that I do not understand is why journalists assume that Democratic presidential candidates absolutely must respond to pro-life activists, or deal with The Abortion Problem. I sometimes think it's because they teach you in journalism school that every four years Swing Voters sprout from the earth like cicadas demanding propitiation. And if the Swing Voters are not sufficiently placated, all manner of hell will break loose, like Swing Voters clinging to God & guns or refusing to speak to responsible centrist journalists in Midwestern diners so the poor scribblers can't expense their rice pudding. Things happen!
