Seth Meyers says Republicans storming classified room looked like a protest at a pharmacy that ran out of Viagra

“Late Night” comedian Seth Meyers couldn’t help but lambast the far-right Republicans angry that they’re not being included in the depositions ahead of the impeachment hearings.

Wednesday, Republicans stormed a secure room known as a SCIF (Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility), because they seemed to misunderstand the difference between a deposition and a hearing. In Congressional hearings, witnesses will be presented for members of the committee to question. In a classified deposition, the witness can give information that is considered classified for security reasons. Oddly, some members who are allowed in the room were also protesting.

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) told MSNBC Wednesday that many of the Republicans show up and throw out political questions and posture before walking out and refusing to participate in the actual deposition. He was confused as to why they didn’t simply show up and stay if they were so intent on being in the deposition.

The whole ordeal prompted Meyers to compare it to a protest outside of a pharmacy that ran out of Viagra. The angry, white, middle-aged men stood around the podium like they’re about to demand their outdated coupon be used for their new boat shoes. Or that they’re irate Dick’s is out of red fishing lures.

“I haven’t seen a group of white guys so angry since they found out their tickets to Don Henley are obstructed view,” Meyers quipped. “Looks like a protest outside a pharmacy that ran out of Viagra. They shouldn’t be at the Capital; they should be standing at a counter at McDonald’s demanding to see the manager.”

Meanwhile, Trump and his team are confessing to all of the things they’re accused of and not realizing they’re doing it. Meyers did a super-cut showing how his White House has gone so quickly from denial to admission. Still, however, they maintain there’s nothing unconstitutional about bribery.

Nicolle Wallace tells Colbert why she cursed at Fox News host Laura Ingraham — and that she left the GOP

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace appeared on Stephen Colbert's "Late Show" Wednesday after spending hours analyzing the impeachment hearings that began that morning.

One of the first things Colbert asked about was the recent smackdown from Wallace about Fox News host Laura Ingraham and her guests going after Col. Alexander Vindman. Ingraham proposed that because Vindman was born in Ukraine that he was somehow a traitor to the United States for coming forward about President Donald Trump's admitted crimes.

‘It takes a small mind to want to out a whistleblower’: Rachel Maddow blasts Trump and GOP

In an analysis of the first day of impeachment, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow explained to late-night comedian Jimmy Fallon why the impeachment hearings were a lot more rational than she anticipated.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) switched committees just to appear and ask questions and Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) humiliated himself, but aside from that, Maddow said she was surprised there were reasonable questions, and everyone remained calm.

Seth Meyers mocks Devin Nunes saying Dems wanted to find nude photos of Trump: ‘Literally no one wants that’

Published

on

"Late Night" host Seth Meyers ridiculed Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) for his absurd line of questioning that accused Democrats of the impeachment is the same as the Russia scandal.

Nunes said that Democrats want the world to forget about their efforts to obtain nude photos of Trump, something Meyers countered with actual sense.

"Hey man, I guarantee you no one wants nude pictures of Donald Trump," Meyers said. "I'm not crazy about clothed pictures of Donald Trump. Also, I have to believe that if there were nude pictures of Donald Trump, the first person to show them would be Donald Trump. He'd probably hold a press conference with a giant poster board."
