Comedian Seth Meyers mocked President Donald Trump over how he handled special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
After nearly two years, Attorney General Bill Barr released the report after holding a Thursday morning press conference.
The report revealed that Trump tried to intervene to stop the report on multiple occasions. Meyers joked that Trump, over the course of the investigation, treated the Mueller report as if he was a ‘terrible boyfriend.”
Meyers joked that before Trump even saw the report he started to declare victory.
“I won. No collusion, no obstruction. I have not read the Mueller report, I have not seen the Mueller report. As far as I know, I don’t care about the Muller report, ” Trump said in the clip.
“You’re like a terrible boyfriend who keeps giving mix messages,” Meyers joked. “I love you, but I need space, I can’t live without you, but you are crowding me.”
‘Flashback much?’: Senator mocked for saying IG report made him feel like he had ‘dropped acid’
“About 25 percent of the way through it I thought I dropped acid. It’s surreal.”
A prominent Republican Senator is getting his own special due process on social media after using his precious time to question U.S. Dept. of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz by saying reading the 434 page report on the FBI's Russia investigation was like dropping acid.
U.S. Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) admitted to Horowitz on Wednesday that he had not finished reading the lengthy document but was about 70 percent done. He also appeared to be trying to make the infractions about FISA warrants committed by FBI agents to be seen as unprecedented and historically offensive, in an attempt to serve President Donald Trump by damaging the reputation of the FBI.

Dennis report.
READ IT: Court filing from Michael Cohen seeking a sentence reduction
President Donald Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison, but he's seeking a reduction in his sentence according to a recent court filing.
"Reducing the Court's previously imposed 36 month term of imprisonment, or, in the alternative, reducing it to a term of home confinement, coupled with a community service," the documents requested.
While Cohen cooperated with investigators, he didn't do so immediately, instead he remained loyal to his former client. After it became clear that Cohen was being thrown under the bus, however, he began to cooperate with investigators.
