“Late Night” host Seth Meyers on Monday panned Donald Trump’s erratic response to special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, joking if federal investigators put pressure on the president, “there’s a good chance he’ll flip on himself.”
After knocking Sen. Bob Corker’s (R-TN) cringeworthy non-endorsement-endorsement of GOP candidate Marsha Blackburn, Meyers turned his attention to Kellyanne Conway’s Sunday interview with CNN’s Dana Bash, which—in Meyer’s words—“quickly went off the rails.”
Meyers played footage of Conway protesting Bash’s question about her husband’s anti-Trump tweets.
“There are other family members who don’t support the president, both privately and publicly,” Conway complained to Bash, accusing CNN of “going there.”
“First of all, we know,” Meyers said flashing a photo of Melania Trump. “Second of all, think about how dumb that argument is: ‘So what if my husband hates Trump? Lots of people do.’”
Meyers later turned to developments in Michael Cohen’s FBI investigation and Trump’s assertion that his longtime lawyer won’t flip on him.
“If Sammy the Bull flipped, you know Michael the Bullsh*t definitely will,” the “Late Night” host joked.
Noting Trump’s weekend Twitter meltdown, during which Trump suggested Cohen might lie to Mueller, Meyers pointed out that fits in the president’s M.O.
“Of course Trump assumes most people will lie to get out of trouble because he’s always lying to get out of trouble,” Meyers said.
“If the feds put pressure on him, there’s a good chance he’ll flip on himself,” he added.
