“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!”

Here are 5 reasons to suspect Jesus never existed
Most antiquities scholars think that the New Testament gospels are “mythologized history.” In other words, based on the evidence available they think that around the start of the first century a controversial Jewish rabbi named Yeshua ben Yosef gathered a following and his life and teachings provided the seed that grew into Christianity. At the same time, these scholars acknowledge that many Bible stories like the virgin birth, miracles, resurrection, and women at the tomb borrow and rework mythic themes that were common in the Ancient Near East, much the way that screenwriters base new movies on old familiar tropes or plot elements. In this view, a “historical Jesus” became mythologized.
