"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."
