Seth Meyers mocks Trump’s Axios interview where he ‘couldn’t even remember his own BS — that’s how fried his brain is’

Published

on

In his response to President Donald Trump’s bizarre interview with Axios reporter Jonathan Swan, “Late Night” comedian Seth Meyers explained the Trump interview in a single photo:

“You know something has gone horribly wrong when a journalist interviewing the president looks like that,” said Meyers. “That’s the face you make when your dad gets drunk and decides to tell you about the night you were conceived.”

The host noted that it should have been obvious that Trump was about to stage a nutty when he came in carrying papers. When he whipped them out, “it was somehow worse than you were expecting.”

He then dissed the “fakest-ass looking chart,” Trump had with bars he thought looked a lot like a printer’s test sheet.

“This looks like a prop they’d give a fourth-grader playing a businessman in a school play,” said the host. “I’m pretty sure this is what George Costanza handed out when he was trying to get donations to The Human Fund.”

The worst, however, was that “Trump couldn’t even remember his own BS. That’s how fried his brain is,” said Meyers. Trump was trying to claim that the case and fatality rate was the lowest in the world, which is misleading, but Meyers said the president couldn’t even remember that.

Meyers explained that it’s an established fact that Trump has a “bad brain,” remarkably similar to hours-old scrambled eggs sitting out at a breakfast buffet at a hotel. “All the hot sauce in the world can’t save it.”

He then recalled the hilarious moment this week when Trump “belched out” the incorrect pronunciation for Yosemite as “Yo-Semite.”

“Yo-Semite is how Sean Connery would pronounce the category on SNL Celebrity Jeopardy,” he joked. “Maybe, he’ll be just as awed at the Hover Dam, or the Statue of Library or the Yell-Aloe Stone Park. It’s like being at a restaurant with your dad the first time he spots quinoa on the menu.”

Meyers couldn’t understand how Trump has never seen or heard the name “Yosemite” before that he got it wrong twice. He noted that Trump isn’t a Russian spy but if he was, calling it “Yo-Semite” would be “a dead giveaway.” Then there was the hilarious moment that Trump tried to explain what the Secretary of the Interior actually does.

“He loves it!” Trump announced. “He loves the interior!”

“He loves the interior? What is he in charge of national parks or the inside of a car?” joked Meyers, speculating that Trump must have been confused hearing the word “interior” but talking about “a bunch of outside places.”

“This is why Trump rarely steps outside his right-wing bubble,” the host joked.

Fox News host rebuts Trump aide after attack on Chris Wallace: ‘He is going to ask the smart questions’

Published

on

Trump campaign spokesperson Hogan Gidley suggested on Thursday that moderator Chris Wallace, a Fox News host, will tilt the upcoming presidential debate in favor of Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

During an interview on Fox News, host Sandra Smith argued that President Donald Trump and his campaign have "set the bar pretty low as far as what we'll see from Joe Biden."

"We haven't set the bar low at all," Gidley insisted. "Joe Biden's own comments and rhetoric sets the bar pretty low."

"But let's be clear, the mainstream media is going to do its level best to cover for Joe Biden no matter what he says or what he does," he continued.

Published

on

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) added his voice to statements issued by other Republican lawmakers assuring they would accept the election results -- which President Donald Trump suggested he would not.

The president refused to commit to the peaceful transition of power if he loses to Joe Biden, and McConnell and some other Republicans offered some sort of assurance they would -- although none mentioned Trump by name and some suggested Biden had made similar threats.
