“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.

Trump tells supporters he won’t be ‘stupid’ enough for peaceful transition of power if he loses
President Donald Trump continued to spread debunked conspiracy theories about the 2020 presidential election during a Friday night campaign rally in Virginia.
Trump argued that it was impossible for him to lose the election, thus concluding he would be "stupid" to hand over power peacefully should he lose.
"We not gonna lose this, except if they cheat," Trump falsely claimed about the 2020 campaign, where he trails Joe Biden in national and battleground polling.
"That's the only way we're gonna lose is if there's, uh, mischief," he argued. "And it will have to be on a big scale."
