On Thursday night, Late Night host Seth Meyers dove deep into President Donald Trump’s efforts to thwart the Russia investigation.
Specifically, Meyers discussed Trump’s mobster-like praise of the “brave” Roger Stone who has refused to cooperate with investigators.
Meyers displayed a photo of Stone dressed as a dandy.
“It takes real guts to go out dressed like a coke dealer from a Charles Dickens novel,” Meyers said.
Meyers also mocked Trump’s comments about how it should be illegal to flip defendants against other co-conspirators.
“Trump may say he’s against flipping but if he were ever arrested he’d flip more than a dad at a cookout,” Meyers said. “Here is our scientific computer simulation of how Trump would react if he was indicted…. ‘It was Don Jr, it was Eric, it was Ivanka, it was Melania, it was Tiffany—take Tiffany, you want Tiffany, you don’t want me you want Tiffany!'”
Meyers mocked Trump for giving an interview to the New York Post and said that Trump clearly would prefer to be the mayor of New York instead of president, that way he’d have many fewer responsibilities and could get sandwiches named after him at delis.
“Make sure you order the Donald Trump,” Meyers said, imitating Trump. “It’s a turkey sandwich but the turkey is ham because I’m a liar.”
‘I don’t care’: Watch Kamala Harris shut down Chris Hayes for asking a dumb question about Trump
Sen. Kamala Harris shut down MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes during a post-debate interview on Tuesday evening.
Hayes questioned Harris about her call for Twitter to follow their terms of service and kick President Donald Trump off of the platform.
"Do you think he puts people’s lives in danger when he targets them in tweets?" Hayes asked.
"Absolutely," Harris replied.
"Do you think he knows that?" Hayes asked.
"Does it matter?" Harris replied.
"The fact is he did it. The fact is that he is irresponsible, he is erratic," she explained. "He is like a 2-year-old with a machine gun."
Democrats blast Trump and demand his impeachment at CNN debate
Democratic White House hopefuls united in searing condemnation of Donald Trump during their fourth debate Tuesday, saying the president has broken the law, abused his power, and deserves to be impeached.
From the opening moments, most of the dozen candidates on stage launched fierce broadsides against Trump over the Ukrainian scandal at the heart of the impeachment inquiry.
"The impeachment must go forward," said Senator Elizabeth Warren, who is neck and neck with former vice president Joe Biden at the head of the 2020 nominations race.
"Impeachment is the way that we establish that this man will not be permitted to break the law over and over without consequences," she thundered.
Here are 3 winners and 4 losers from the CNN/NYT Democratic presidential primary debate
Twelve Democrats took to the stage Tuesday night for yet another debate in the party's 2020 president primary hosted by CNN and the New York Times.
After only ten candidates qualified for the previous debate, an additional two — Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard and wealthy donor and former hedge fund manager Tom Steyer — made it to the stage this round for an even more crowded event.
The candidates discussed a range of important policy issues, but since the format was a debate, and they're all competing for the same nomination, it is ultimately most critical who won and who lost the night. Here are three winners and four losers — necessarily a subjective assessment, of course — from the debate:
