President Donald Trump spent Wednesday visiting the Carolina coast hit by Hurricane Florence last week. It was enough that “Late Night” host Seth Meyers found it simply “weird.”
At one point during his tour, Trump saw a man in a small brick home with a large yacht that had washed ashore and was shipwrecked against a deck.
“Is that your boat?” Trump asked the man. He said it wasn’t “Well, at least you got a boat out of the deal.”
“I swear, Trump could see a man jump off a building and think, ‘Oh look! Free shoes!'” Meyers half-joked.
Trump then had an exchange with reporters on what the law is behind keeping stuff like that. Meyers sarcastically called it the “famous Supreme Court case of Finders v. Keepers. This is the guy, that guy right there, is the one who gets to pick our next Supreme Court justice. A man who thinks that legally speaking that if a boat shows up on your lawn, you get to keep it.”
Speaking of the Supreme Court, Meyers noted that nominee Brett Kavanaugh is inches from changing the highest court in the land for an entire generation. Meanwhile, Trump is touting how great Kavanaugh “looks,” calling him someone who looks like he’s from “central casting.”
Meyers said if someone was casting this, Kavanaugh would probably end up as the manager on “Superstore.”
In an epic takedown, Meyers then detailed the string of lies and nonsense that has flooded from Kavanaugh since his nomination.

‘The president’s in major trouble’: CNN polling analyst reveals how Trump dug himself a massive hole for 2020
President Donald Trump should be coasting to reelection given that unemployment is under four percent -- but poll after poll shows that the president is significantly down compared to prospective Democratic rivals.
In fact, polling data from the president's own reelection campaign leaked last week and showed him trailing former Vice President Joe Biden significantly in multiple key swing states, which infuriated the president and resulted in the firing of staff pollsters.
‘Delusional’ Tom Cotton pummeled for believing armed conflict with Iran would be as simple as ‘two strikes’ and done
Calling him "delusional," a Washington Post columnist ripped into Arkansas Republican Senator Tom Cotton on Monday for boasting during a Sunday "Face the Nation" interview that a war with Iran would be relatively painless and could be accomplished with just "two strikes."
Appearing on the CBS show over the weekend, Cotton told host Margaret Brennan that the U.S. needs to unleash its military might on Iran because Donald Trump's administration has claimed they are behind attacks on two oil tankers in the Strait of Hormuz.
Gun-loving Parkland teen loses admission to Harvard over racist texts
A pro-gun Parkland school shooting survivor has lost his admission to Harvard University over recently revealed racist remarks.
Kyle Kashuv broke with many of his classmates on gun safety laws after a February 2018 massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, and he was accepted to attend the Ivy League university after working as a conservative activist.
