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.”

Pelosi’s war on progressives risks another Trump victory
There are three reasons Trump won, and some of the leading Democrats don't seem to understand any of them
If Trump wins in 2020—and right now, he stands a good chance of doing it—you can thank Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the neoliberals in charge of the Democratic Party.
At the moment she and her allies are waging a war against progressives in order to hold onto a mythical centrist majority that doesn't exist. This threatens to repeat the mistakes of 2016, while ignoring the lessons of 2018.
Here are 5 of Trump’s most unhinged moments as his ‘Showcase to America’ descended into absurdity
President Donald Trump reiterated his familiar protectionist and “America first” themes on Monday during his Made in America Showcase, bragging about tariffs imposed on other countries and claiming that under his watch, manufacturing jobs are returning to the United States in a big way. But Trump wasn’t content to merely discuss his economic and trade policies. The president also used the speech and a press conference to defend some Twitter comments that are being widely denounced as racist.
Over the weekend, Trump attacked four congresswomen of color and urged them to go back to the countries they came from. The comments were obviously aimed at Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York City, Rep. Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota — the liberal/progressive alliance known as The Squad in the U.S. House of Representatives. All of them are U.S. citizens, and the Somali-born Omar is the only one of the four who wasn’t born in the U.S.
Trump’s Cabinet exodus is an emergency — and it’s continually getting worse
One of Donald Trump’s major campaign promises was to “drain the swamp,” an allusion to the cesspool of corrupt and unethical characters crowding the hallways of power in Washington. But in over two years in office, the only major clearing out in the nation’s capital has been of Trump’s own Cabinet.
On Friday, Department of Labor Secretary Alex Acosta announced that he would join the long list of recent resignations out of the Trump administration, bowing out in disgrace over his handling of a major sex trafficking case involving billionaire political donor Jeffrey Epstein.
