“Late Night” host Seth Meyers tried to help President Donald Trump out a little during his “closer look,” segment of his Wednesday show.
After watching multiple clips of the president ranting about how “perfect” his call with Ukraine was that started the Ukraine scandal, Meyers explained why promoting himself so much makes him look worse.
“When you over-compensate like that it only makes you seem guiltier,” Meyers explained.
While the president is choosing to focus much of his attention on attacking the whistleblower, the reality is that his own partial transcript proves his guilt. According to the summary, Trump said the phrase, “I’d like you to do us a favor, though,” which fully confirms the extortion the president was proposing.
“Remember during the Russia investigation when everyone wondered if there would be a smoking gun? Well, it turns out that the smoking gun was Donald Trump’s mouth the whole time,” Meyers said.
The host explained that typically when someone was innocent of a crime they’d proclaim, “I didn’t do it!” Where Trump would deny a bank robbery by calling it a “perfect transaction.”

Trump’s promises on manufacturing jobs have collapsed — all thanks to his trade war
One of President Donald Trump's biggest promises during the 2016 campaign was to bring manufacturing jobs back to the United States.
However, as Axios reports, the manufacturing sector of the economy is in a major slump and much of it can be attributed to the president's trade wars against multiple countries.
Trump’s ‘deep state’ conspiracy theories are going down the drain — thanks to his own appointees
President Donald Trump's insistence that the entire probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election was a setup by nefarious law enforcement agents has been dealt a significant blow in recent days.
According to multiple reports, Inspector General Michael Horowitz's report on the origins of the Russia probe will conclude that there was sufficient reason for the FBI to open up an investigation into the Trump campaign given the knowledge they had in the summer of 2016.
‘You don’t get to dictate terms’: Trump soundly mocked for demanding speedy resolution to impeachment
President Donald Trump broke with his Republican defenders, who say impeachment is moving too fast, and demanded a quick resolution to the constitutional process.
House Democrats moved the impeachment process from the Intelligence Committee to the Judiciary Committee after nearly two weeks of testimony, and Trump called for a speedy end to the matter.
"The Do Nothing Democrats had a historically bad day yesterday in the House," Trump tweeted. "They have no Impeachment case and are demeaning our Country. But nothing matters to them, they have gone crazy."
"Therefore I say, if you are going to impeach me, do it now, fast, so we can have a fair trial in the Senate, and so that our Country can get back to business," he added. "We will have Schiff, the Bidens, Pelosi and many more testify, and will reveal, for the first time, how corrupt our system really is. I was elected to 'Clean the Swamp,' and that’s what I am doing!"
