Seth Meyers begs Trump to stop pulling dates to reopen America out of his behind — ‘it’s unsanitary’

Published

“Late Night” host Seth Meyers joined the group of talk-show hosts appearing on camera from the comfort of their own homes. Doing his “Closer Look” series, Meyers went after President Donald Trump for the decision to open the country by Easter, come hell or high water.

Meyers noted that Trump believes in his own Easter miracle because he’s lived in a “magical” world his whole life.

In the 1980s and 90s, Trump lost over $1 billion and then took a photo of himself wearing some sort of cape.

“He looks like an out-of-work magician on a job interview,” mocked Meyers. “It looks like he got banned from kids’ birthday parties for doing cocaine in the bathroom.”

As a quintessential conman, running a casino into the ground is bad, “but it’s especially when you’re in charge of responding to a deadly pandemic ravaging the nation and cratering the economy.”

He noted that this was all part of the concern that people had when Trump was running in 2016. He noted that it’s remarkably similar to the small town that elects a dog as the mayor because it might seem cute, but when you need the dog to coordinate disaster response, the dog isn’t what you want.

“Trump is ill-equipped to handle this because he’s never dwelled in reality,” said Meyers. “His life has been built on magical thinking, and that’s what we’ve seen since the start of this crisis. Like when he said that the problem would disappear miraculously even as intelligence reports and public health experts were warning him that it would be extremely dangerous.”

It isn’t as if Trump is an expert on Easter anyway. Meyers said he doubted Trump could even remember any of Jesus’ miracles from the Bible.

“Let’s see, Jesus cured a leopard. Got rid of its spots, so it could leave the leopard colony,” Meyers said doing his Trump impression.

Despite Trump’s promises that it would miraculously disappear, it hasn’t worked.

Meyers begged Trump not to pull things like this out of his ass, which he warned was unsanitary and told Trump to wash his hands.

This Europe country is housing quarantined coronavirus patients in a five-star hotel

Published

on

An ambulance driver wearing a white protective gown enters a Barcelona hotel and announces the arrival of three new "customers" -- a trio of coronavirus patients discharged from hospital into luxury quarantine.

"Good morning! How are you? My name is Enrique Aranda and I am probably the first non health care worker you see in several days," says the director of the five-star Melia Sarria hotel, peering into the ambulance.

It took just three days to convert the hotel, which features contemporary decor and bathrooms with marble finishing, into a clinic.

"Some patients arrive thinking that they were taken out of hospital to be left to die, many people are frightened. I try to make them forget all that," said Aranda, wearing mask and gloves.

UK Labour to unveil new leader to replace Jeremy Corbyn

Published

on

Britain's main opposition Labour party on Saturday unveils a new leader who will take the helm of a defeated and divided party in the midst of the coronavirus crisis.

Keir Starmer, a former director of state prosecutions and Labour's Brexit spokesman, is the runaway favourite to win the ballot of around 500,000 party members and succeed Jeremy Corbyn.

The announcement will be a low-key affair, with a planned special conference cancelled due to restrictions on social gatherings imposed to stem the spread of COVID-19.

Instead, the result will be put out in a press release mid-morning -- and candidates have been asked to pre-record their victory speeches.

Here's some of what people were saying about Trump's decision:

Trump’s dead of night decision to fire ICIG Michael Atkinson is another blatant attempt to gut the independence of the Intelligence Community and retaliate against those who dare to expose presidential wrongdoing.
