On Wednesday, comedian Seth Meyers mocked President Donald Trump after his former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, testified before Congress.
He mocked the fact that Trump is currently in Vietnam for a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Trump bailed out on going to war and allegedly lied about having “bone spurs.”
While testifying, Cohen unloaded on multiple crimes that Trump has allegedly committed. He called out Trump for being a “racist” and a “con.”
He also said that Trump was aware of a hush money payment made to adult film star Stormy Daniels.
“He just listed off a bunch of alleged crimes committed by the president on national TV,” Meyers said.
“It’s so ironic. Trump finally went to Vietnam and is getting killed back home,” Meyers joked.

According to Daniel Squadron, co-founder of the Future Now Fund, "If you look at where the important states are, the places most people are watching are the Electoral College to secure the White House. But the truth is that when you talk about the impact of 2020, electoral control of the state legislatures is critical.”

Directors of an Italian museum are optimistic that a painting found hidden in a wall this week is a Gustav Klimt work stolen two decades ago, a director said on Thursday.
Preliminary indications appear that the painting of a woman found by gardeners on Tuesday inside an external wall on the museum's grounds could indeed by the "Portrait of a Woman" painted by the Austrian artist in 1916-1917.
"What interests us the most is whether it's the original or not, rather than the theft investigation," said Massimo Ferrari, president of the Ricci Oddi Gallery of Modern Art, a museum in Piacenza, in northwest Italy.
