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.”

Beto O’Rourke’s ‘war tax’ policy proposal is straight out of ‘Starship Troopers’
Amid an overcrowded Democratic presidential candidate field, it's hard to distinguish yourself from the pack if you don't slot easily into the scale that runs from "pro-corporate centrist" to "left-populist." If you're former Texas congressman Beto O'Rourke — who falls somewhere in the middle, politically, and somewhere towards the top, looks-wise — you pull a militaristic policy proposal out of your hat that recalls some of the most campy pseudo-fascist sci-fi ever written.
