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.

Clark says he misses the church he's been preaching at for 15 years, which has been empty since March when the lockdown orders started, Fox 9 reports.
Nancy Pelosi roasts Mark Zuckerberg for ‘pandering’ to Trump and his ‘silly’ tantrums
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday mocked Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg for his efforts to appease President Donald Trump's criticisms of major social media companies.
During a press conference, Pelosi said that Zuckerberg "just panders" to Trump in an effort to preserve his business model, which she described as a platform for people to "misrepresent facts" without consequence.
"They knew during the 2016 elections that the Russians were engaged in foul play," she said. "They knew, because they saw where the money was coming from!"
She then turned her attention to Trump's new executive order that will reportedly open up tech platforms to more lawsuits.
Pennsylvania Dem unloads on GOPers who pushed to reopen as they hid colleague’s COVID-19 infection
Pennsylvania state Rep. Brian Sims (D) lashed out at Republican lawmakers who remained silent after testing positive for COVID-19.
Democrats this week accused Republicans of withholding information after Rep. Andrew Lewis (R) tested positive for the virus.
"It's been a week, perhaps longer, that House Republican leadership knew that at least one of their members had tested positive for COVID-19," Sims explained in a Facebook post. "But they didn't go on quarantine until they were done serving alongside us, especially those of us that serve on the State Government Committee."
