“Late Night” host Seth Meyers normally is full of mockery and silliness, but tonight he delivered an epic smackdown of Vice President Mike Pence, who’s been getting a pass as indictments roll in on allies of President Donald Trump.
Pence, who served as the director of the Trump transition team, went on television multiple times to deny any allegations of Russian intrusion in the 2016 election, despite intelligence agencies saying otherwise. He also denied retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn had any involvement with anything nefarious, which proved to also not be true.
Despite chairing the transition team, the idea that Pence was completely in the dark about major policy conversations about Russia a senior adviser was involved in is hard to believe and Meyers called him out on it in a way that few have thus far.
“And, you know, Mike Pence doesn’t get credit for it, but he’s just as slippery as anyone else in this administration,” Meyers said after showing the greatest hits of Pence lies on news talk shows. “The only difference is when he lies he crinkles his brow and uses a solemn tone. And when Trump lies, he sweats like a fugitive being chased by a pack of police dogs.”
Meyers found two videos of each person from about the same time on the same topic and showed them back to back.
“It’s like when the cops separate two suspects in a bank heist and one of them says, ‘I’d like to speak to my lawyer.’ And the other guy is in the next room screaming, ‘It was all Mike’s idea!'” Meyers joked.

Former acting CIA director explains why Trump’s inaction on Russian bounty scandal will make things worse
It was revealed nearly two weeks ago that the Russian government is paying a bounty to the Taliban for killing American soldiers.
Since then, President Donald Trump has denied that he and his administration didn't know anything about it. Then he claimed it was a hoax. Now it has become clear that the stories are not only true but that if Trump read his presidential daily briefing in 2019, he would have been aware of the problem.
Speaking to the House Thursday, Trump's former acting CIA director Michael Morell explained that things are being made far worse by the president's denial.

Trump tells Fox News the ‘Black Lives Matter’ sign on Fifth Avenue is like he’s being ‘prosecuted’
President Donald Trump appeared to reveal another quid pro quo during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.
MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell pointed it out during an interview with Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA).
"I was very nice to Mayor de Blasio. I got him ventilators when he needed them... I got him the gowns. I got him the masks. I got him everything. Then he throws a big Black Lives Matter sign right down in the middle of Fifth Avenue. I was so good to him and to Gov. Cuomo, like nobody's ever been good. And then all you end up doing out of that place is getting prosecuted."
