Late-night comedian Seth Meyers observed that most people who were inches from being fired from their job would try and prove that they should remain. President Donald Trump, however, has taken a different path, “slurring like a lunatic while throwing in some of his trademark sexism.”
Meyers played a clip of Trump’s rally where he went after everything from admitting he demanded the Ukraine president say what he asked and an allegation that there’d be windmills all over the country under Hillary Clinton. Trump previously alleged that wind energy is dangerous because the windmills cause ear cancer. After an attack on Beto O’Rourke, Trump turned to Elizabeth Warren, who he said, “opened her fresh mouth.”
“She opened her fresh mouth? You sound like the headmaster of a private school called St. Misogynist’s Academy,” said Meyers. “Elizabeth Warren actually has plans for things people care about like corruption, equality, and climate change. Your energy plan is ‘Windmills sound like wahhh, wahhhh.'”
He explained that Trump is about to become the third president in history to be impeached, whether he likes it or not; it will remain a stain on his presidency and his legacy forever.
“They’re going to have to put an asterisk next to Trump’s name on his building with a footnote below it saying ‘impeached,'” Meyers joked.
During his Hershey, Pennsylvania speech Tuesday, Trump even mocked Democrats for only charging him with two articles of impeachment, instead of bringing up all of his previous obstructions of justice under the Russia scandal.
Trump then tried to brand the impeachment as “impeachment light,” where it’s somehow less severe than any other impeachments.
“You’re either impeached, or you’re not,” Meyers told Trump. “There’s no light version. Trump’s like a drunk guy at a bar on his sixth beer saying, ‘It’s Impeachment Light beer! Now give me my keys!”

Lev Parnas’s lawyer declared ‘open war’ on AG Bill Barr during Maddow interview: attorney
The attorney for Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas appears to be using a novel legal strategy, attorney Luppe Luppen explained on Friday.
Joseph Bondy, the attorney for Parnas, was interviewed Friday evening by Rachel Maddow, following the day's end of the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.
Luppen, who offers legal analysis on his popular @nycsouthpaw Twitter account, came to a conclusion that seemed to surprise him after watching the interview.
"I’ve never seen a lawyer sit on a cable panel show and make that much news," Luppen wrote.
Democratic prosecutors wrap up case against Trump
Democratic prosecutors on Friday wrapped up three days of arguments for seeking Donald Trump's removal from office, as the US president's lawyers prepared to take their turn presenting his defense in the Senate's historic impeachment trial.
For a final eight-hour stretch, the 100 senators listened as Democrats argued that Trump abused the power of the presidency in pressuring Ukraine to launch investigations that would help him politically and then sought to block efforts by Congress to investigate.
Democrats said they had met the burden of proof as they warned Republicans that Trump would remain a grave danger to the nation if left in office.

CNN's Manu Raju revealed after the Senate adjourned that Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) audibly disputed Rep. Adam Schiff's (D-CA) quotation of a CBS News report threatening senators.
"She shook her head and said, 'No they didn't. No, that's not true,'" Raju reported.
Sens. Tom Cotton (R-AR), Jim Risch (R-ID) Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and John Barrasso also said that the report was false.
