Late Night host Seth Meyers mocked President Donald Trump for creating a “fictional president” who served for 16 years during his show on Thursday.
Meyers said that President Trump is looking for new ways to gain voters and wants to make himself look like he is actually accomplishing something.
“Trump is desperate for a win, so as usual he just makes stuff up. Trump started repeating a line that he cut more regulations that any president,” Meyers said. “Including a fictional president who served 16 years.”
Meyers suggested that President Trump may be referring to Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Roosevelt, was elected for a fourth term, but only served one-year into his last term because he passed away.
“We think he is referring to FDR, who only served 12 years. But no one has corrected him because he keeps saying it, like he did for the third time this week,” Meyers said.
“How has no one corrected him yet? That is the scary thing about Trump, even when he is wrong, no one tells him,” Meyers said.

According to a report from Cincinnati.com, Conway attacked the leading Democratic presidential nominees before making her claim.
“Their top three candidates are white, career politicians in their 60s and 70s, which I have nothing against except they (Democrats) certainly do,” Conway reportedly told the crowd. “I don’t know why the heck the Democratic party electorate is so racist and sexist. I can’t figure it out.”
Betsy DeVos’ DOE threatens to cut university funding for positive portrayal of Islam
The U.S Department of Education threatened to pull federal funding from a Middle East studies course jointly run by Duke University and the University of North Carolina because it portrays Islam too positively.
The DOE ordered the universities to change their program or lose its federal grant money. In a letter to UNC, the department criticized the program, arguing that topics like Iranian art and film have “little or no relevance” to the Middle East studies program. The letter also argues that the program “appears to lack balance” because its programs are not focused on the discrimination faced by “religious minorities in the Middle East," including Christians and Jews.
