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.
Ex-prosecutor slams Congress for not jailing subpoena violators in the Trump administration: ‘It’s incomprehensible’
House Democrats have been blocked at every turn from their lawful oversight functions as President Donald Trump's administration directs its members to ignore subpoenas for information on a variety of topics, from the Russia investigation to the census.
On Thursday, former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner castigated Democrats for their unwillingness to use their biggest weapon in the subpoena fight: inherent contempt.
It’s incomprehensible that Congress appears unwilling to use its lawful inherent contempt powers to force the issue of administration members ignoring properly issued subpoenas. Like a football team refusing to pass the ball, forever running up the middle, gaining zero yards. https://t.co/AaWvEsJvk2
Trump’s campaign is a perpetual outrage machine designed to inflame ‘every f-cking deplorable’ in America
President Donald Trump's re-election campaign is gambling on an unprecedented strategy by focusing entirely on his base, while making little or no effort to attract new supporters.
The president still hasn't cracked 50 percent approval in two and a half years in the White House, and his 2020 campaign was built around a perpetual outrage machine designed to inflame his core supporters -- and drive them to the polls, reported TIME.
The campaign uses Google and Facebook algorithms to make massive digital advertising purchases any time Trump stirs up controversy, and scoops up data when supporters interact with those ads or buy online merchandise from the Trump campaign website.
Putin says use of US force against Iran would be ‘disaster’
Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday said any use of force by the US against Iran would lead to disaster as tensions escalate between Washington and Tehran.
"The US says it does not rule out the use of force... This would be a disaster for the region," Putin said during an annual televised phone-in with screened questions posed by Russian viewers.
"It would lead to a surge in violence and an increase in the number of refugees," he said, adding that the consequences of intervention would be "difficult to calculate".
Moscow has backed Tehran in its stand off with the United States since Washington pulled out of an international 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran last year.
