Seth Meyers mocks GOP for treating Trump like King Kong: ‘He’s the president, you shouldn’t have to control him’

Published

on

Late-night host Seth Meyers mocked Republicans attempted to control President Donald Trump. Meyers joked that Trump shouldn’t have to be controlled because he is the president of the United States

New polls released say that Trump’s approval ratings are sinking. Meyers said people might ignore this because of The New York Time anonymous op-ed that said there “are adults in the room.”

Meyers then plays a clip of Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) saying that he hopes the staff in the White House would figure out ways to control Trump.

“He is the president, you shouldn’t have to control him. You are talking about him like he just escaped from skull island. He is about to Tweet something — quick shot him with a tranquilizer dart,” Meyers said.

He added, “That’s been the line for two years —responsible people around Trump are helping him make good decisions.”

"You compared his rally to Nuremberg!" McCain interrupted.

Published

Fox News on Tuesday briefly interrupted a speech being delivered by President Donald Trump at a Turning Point USA summit.

During his speech, Trump started talking about delivering a commencement address at the Air Force Academy.

"They said, sir, would you like to shake the hands of all the cadets? I said how many other? They said 1,100. I said yeah, that sounds okay,” Trump remarked.

“Do other presidents do it? Yes, they do. Do all of them? What they didn’t say is they start, then they peter out. That sun was beaming down, and if some of these guys are great athletes — some of the women, they had some women in the class, their hands were very strong, okay.”
