“Late Night” host Seth Meyers couldn’t help but laugh at President Donald Trump for not having any clue what was actually in the Constitution.
In a surprise move, Trump’s lawyers sent a letter to Congress alleging that their impeachment inquiry was unconstitutional. It’s a move that many legal scholars scoffed at and said no lawyer should put their name on such a letter, since impeachment is actually outlined in the Constitution.
Meyers went back to the 2016 campaign days when it was clear Trump had no idea what he was talking about regarding America’s founding documents.
“It’s all about the Constitution, of, of, and, so important,” Trump said during the presidential debate. “The Constitution. The way it was meant to be.”
Meyers showed another clip of Trump from Dec. 2015 in which Trump said the media wanted to “surrender our Constitution,” except that document gives the media the right to a free press.
The following month, Trump said, “I feel strongly about our Constitution. I’m proud of it. I love it. And I want to go through the Constitution. That’s what we want to do. I mean, we want to bring the Constitution back.”
Meyers had no idea what Trump was talking about, noting the Constitution didn’t go anywhere.
Trump, however, has done whatever he can to undermine key pieces of the Constitution that involve oversite of the executive branch.
“He’s calling the process that is laid out in the Constitution, unconstitutional,” Meyers laughed. “He’s going to be so shocked if he ever reads the Constitution one day.
Meyers said in his Trump impression: “Let’s see here. Oh no! Oh, no! Oh boy. High crimes and misdemeanors? I did both of those this morning. Oh, there better not be anything in here about golf. Oh no!”

Trump has now predicted COVID will ‘go away’ in each of the last seven months
President Donald Trump on Wednesday told "Fox & Friends" that the novel coronavirus "will go away, like things go away."
As Democratic political operative Daniel Wessel notes on Twitter, this is not the first time the president has made bold declarations about the virus disappearing.
Back in February, Trump said the virus "miraculously goes away," then said in March that "it'll go away," and then in April declared that "it's going away."
‘Scared’ Republicans ask House minority leader to lay out an agenda since Trump can’t
House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has handed out talking points describing the GOP agenda for the upcoming election, since President Donald Trump has been unwilling to chart a course himself.
Some lawmakers "were scared" when Trump was unable to detail his second-term strategy when asked in a recent interview, so several Republicans asked McCarthy to produce an agenda for their own re-election campaigns, reported Axios.
‘I don’t even know where to start’: CNN analyst tears into Trump’s plan to give re-nomination speech at White House
On CNN Wednesday, CNN analyst Dana Bash slammed President Donald Trump's new plan to give the GOP re-nomination speech at the White House.
"I mean, I don't even know where to start," said Bash. "There is a law called the Hatch Act, where it says that you're not supposed to politic from government grounds. The president is exempt from that, so it may be legal grounds for him to stand on, relatively firmly, to do this at the White House. There are questions about the aides that are working for him to do it. But let's just talk about whether it's appropriate."
