“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!”

Fox News host shreds Mulvaney’s attempt to clean up his damning Ukraine confession
Fox News host Ed Henry was not at all impressed with White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney's attempt to clean up a damning admission he made about President Donald Trump tying the delivery of aid to the Ukrainian government to being willing to launch investigations at the president's behest.
During a Friday segment, Henry seemed particularly annoyed that Mulvaney had tried to blame the media for supposedly misconstruing statements that he'd made in broad daylight.
"The media is to blame for writing down what he said and Fox recording on video what he said?" Henry said. "He stood at the podium and connected the dots for Democrats and said, 'You are darn right... that we were holding up aid to Ukraine because the president wanted an investigation of corruption!'"
GOP giving up trying to reclaim House seats as 2020 wipeout looms: report
Faced with a ticket likely headed by an unpopular president and watching the Democrats rake in campaign cash ahead of the 2020 election, the Republican Party is conceding they will not win back the House by reclaiming seats they lost in the so-called 2018 "blue wave" election.
According to a report from Politico, Democratic candidates have been stockpiling massive amounts of cash to wage war in what is expected to be a high turnout election with Donald Trump as the face of the Republican Party and seats that the GOP thought they might have a shot at now appearing unattainable.
Eric Trump whines about ‘cheap shots’ after explaining why his family business stiffs contractors
Hundreds of contractors over the years have filed complaints against the Trump Organization, saying they weren't paid the fees owed to them. Speaking to Yahoo Finance this Thursday, Eric Trump, who the organization's Executive Vice President, defended his company's record in a rather eyebrow-raising way.
"We believe in paying people when they do great jobs," Donald Trump's second eldest son said.
"We get people paid incredibly quickly. And we pay contractors,” he continued, adding that the Trump Organization only refuses to pay if a contractor doesn't complete a job.
