Seth Meyers nails how to tell if Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani are lying: ‘Just point a camera at them!’

Monday began with President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani’s gaffe-filled interview with CNN that was supposed to be a clean-up of another interview flub. It’s just the latest in a long line of mistakes made by the president’s attorney in their public relations campaign against the special counsel and FBI investigators.

During Seth Meyers “Late Night,” the host noted that the president and his team lie so badly that all anyone would have to do is point a camera at them.

“He’s a liar, whose lawyer is lying about his lying lawyer’s lies,” Meyers summed up Giuliani’s attacks on ex-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen. He noted that there should be a Dr. Seuss-style book about it called The Lie-ax.

Contradicting Giuliani’s attacks on Cohen, Meyers unearthed all of the times the former New York mayor celebrated Trump’s former fixer.

Meyers went on to mock Trump for the way that he worked to defend his son Donald Trump Jr. to press last week.

“Don is — as many of you know Don — he’s a good boy,” Trump said through his press office.

“He’s 40 and you’re talking about him like he’s a Golden Retriever,” Meyers joked.

In his Trump voice, Meyers took the president’s praise even further.

“He’s a good boy. Very loyal,” Meyers said. “And house trained. You never hear the fake-news talk about how he’s house trained. But it’s been weeks since he’s had an accident.”

He noted that it does make sense if you think about Trump in this context.

“Trump is a 72-year-old man, who eats McDonald’s, wants a Space Force and gives people dumb nicknames,” Meyers continued. “By the end of his presidency, his motorcade will just be Secret Service pulling him in a Radio-Flyer.”

The NBC host explained that the story keeps shifting for the Trump team. They’ve gone from saying that the Trump Tower meeting wasn’t about getting dirt to saying nothing came of it. Then they tried to claim that even if something did come of the meeting, “that’s politics.” Today, however, Meyers noted, Giuliani moved the goal-post even further.

Under Giuliani’s description, there’s no such thing as collusion in the federal code. One legal analyst noted that he looked up the word collusion in the dictionary only to find it to be a synonym for “illegal, criminal conspiracy.” The crime that the investigators are looking into is beyond criminal conspiracy, however.

Trump has maintained that there is “no collusion.”

‘Go look at President Trump’s Twitter’: Portland right-wing rally organizer claims ‘mission success’

Published

on

The organizer of a far-right rally in Portland, Oregon claimed the event was a "success" after President Donald Trump attacked Portlandiers protesting the group.

"A confluence of protesters on opposite ends of the ideological spectrum merged on Portland’s waterfront Saturday in a tense but relatively uneventful face-off that brought national attention, including a tweet in the hours before the protest by President Trump decrying the city’s signature anti-fascist movement," the Oregonian reported Saturday.

When a similar right-wing rally in Charlottesville, Virginia killed Heather Heyer, Trump argued there were "fine people" on both sides of the "Unite the Right" rally.

Why was Jeffrey Epstein buying size 5 women’s panties — while in jail?

Published

on

The Miami Herald has another bombshell report on Jeffrey Epstein, who died in a Manhattan jail while waiting to stand trial on federal sex crimes charges.

"A decade ago, during a brief stint in Palm Beach County Jail, convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein made an odd purchase at the facility’s store: two pairs of small women’s panties, size 5," the Herald reported Saturday night.

The newspaper noted, "the panties raise questions about why a childless male inmate, accused of sexually abusing girls as young as 14, would be allowed to buy female undergarments so small that they wouldn’t fit an average-sized adult woman."

Published

Embattled Rep. Steve King (R-IA) suffered further humiliation on Saturday when only two people showed up for his town hall meeting with Iowa constituents.

King, who was stripped of all committee assignments for his white nationalism, was been an embarrassment for Republicans with his constant racism and misogyny.

A photo of the town hall meeting was posted on Twitter by Reuters photo editor Corinne Perkins.
