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!”

Florida sheriff ordered his officers to not wear face masks — and then banned the safety gear
A Florida sheriff ordered his officers to not wear face masks -- and banned the safety gear from his office -- even as the southern US state has hit record daily coronavirus death tolls.
Sheriff Billy Woods, of central Florida's Marion County, emailed deputies Tuesday to tell them of the new mask prohibition, according to local paper the Ocala Star Banner, citing the message.
"My order will stand as is when you are on-duty/working as my employee and representing my Office – masks will not be worn," the email read.
The sheriff allowed for certain exceptions, including for officers who work in prisons, schools, hospitals or with people suspected of being infected with the virus.
Fast-moving brush fire north of Los Angeles has prompted mandatory evacuation orders for some 500 homes
A fast-moving brush fire north of Los Angeles prompted mandatory evacuation orders for some 500 homes on Wednesday as firefighters battled the flames that had burned 10,000 acres by early evening, authorities said.
The Lake Fire erupted at around 3:30 pm (2230 GMT) near Lake Hughes, about a 90-minute drive from Los Angeles.
Rapidly-spreading flames had scorched some 10,000 acres (4,050 hectares) within a little more than three hours, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
"Multiple agencies are battling a brush fire near the Lake Hughes area in the Angeles National Forest," the department said in a tweet.
‘Trump should know how to be in public with a woman who publicly humiliated him’: Trevor Noah jokes
"The Daily Show's" Trevor Noah couldn't help but notice President Donald Trump's confusion during the Q&A of his daily coronavirus press briefing. Trump was asked about Vice President Joe Biden's pick as Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as his running mate. In his attacks on Harris, Trump seemed to be spending more time defending Biden than he did attacking him.
Trump claimed the reason he was surprised Biden picked Harris is that she was "very very nasty to Joe Biden," he said she was "probably nastier even than Pocahontas," his nickname for Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). "She was very disrespectful to Joe Biden."
