Late Night host Seth Meyers mocked president Donald Trump over his attack on NBA star LeBron James.
James recently sat down with CNN’s Don Lemon to discuss the opening of his I Promise school aimed towards helping at-risk youth in his hometown.
After James said that he would not sit down with Trump, if given the opportunity, President Trump responded by tweeting: “Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!”
“Remember Trump says he never watches CNN while simultaneously complaining about what he sees on CNN” Meyers said. “Trump isn’t an at-risk youth but LeBron just took him to school.”
Meyers said that in order to fuel his ego, Trump surrounded himself by his supporters at his rally in Ohio.
During his Ohio rally, he boasted that he won the women vote.
“That’s right, Trump says he won the women — and we only had to pay off some of them,” Meyers said. “Melania’s body might be there but her mind is on Amazon prime shopping for LeBron jerseys.”
President Trump then went into a rant about space. “What does he think this is happening on Mars?” Meyers asked.
“It’s red because they voted for me,” Meyers joked as he mocked Trump.
Trump’s anti-worker labor nominee is more like the ‘Secretary of Corporate Interests’
Progressive groups and Democratic lawmakers expressed serious concerns Thursday about corporate attorney Eugene Scalia — President Donald Trump's pick to lead the Labor Department — as the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee met to consider his nomination.
"Instead of nominating a Secretary of Labor, President Trump has nominated a Secretary of Corporate Interests," declared Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), the committee's ranking member. "If there's one consistent pattern in Mr. Scalia's long career, it's hostility to the very workers he would be charged with protecting, and the very laws he would be charged with enforcing if he were confirmed."
Here are the specific charges Trump could face if the whistleblower report reaches prosecutors
The exploding Ukrainian whistleblower scandal could once again throw President Donald Trump into legal turmoil, wrote former federal prosecutor Barbara McQuade for The Daily Beast on Saturday.
Specifically, she argued, prosecutors could theoretically charge the president under federal bribery and extortion laws, based on the facts laid out by recent reporting.
"The facts here still need to be fleshed out, but the gist is easy enough to understand," wrote McQuade. "Trump allegedly has demanded that Ukraine launch an investigation into Biden if it wants to receive the military aid that has already been promised. If true, this conduct would be a classic abuse of power that is considered criminal when committed by a public official."
There’s evidence that climate activism could be swaying public opinion in the US
Climate activists walked out of classrooms and workplaces in more than 150 countries on Friday, Sept. 20 to demand stronger action on climate change. Mass mobilizations like this have become increasingly common in recent years.
I’m a scholar of environmental communication who examines how people become engaged with solving dilemmas such as climate change, and how activism motivates others to take action. A new study I worked on suggests that large rallies, such as this youth-led Climate Strike, could be influencing public opinion.
