Seth Meyers knocks ‘petulant psycho’ Trump for disaster debate: ‘Like a drunk who wouldn’t hand over his keys’

“Late Night” host Seth Meyers joined the chorus of Americans disgusted by President Donald Trump’s unhinged debate performance Tuesday evening.

In his Wednesday “Closer Look” segment, Meyers noted that “debate” wasn’t the right word, “it was more like a collective brain hemorrhage. It was like watching democracy get a lobotomy.”

He played clips of the horrified CNN hosts, calling it everything from a “disgrace” to a “sh*tshow,” and said that they were far too charitable.

“Watching that debate was like hotboxing a porta-potty with crystal meth in Phoenix in July,” Meyers characterized. “It was like being hit on the head with a lead pipe in a room filled with nitrous oxide. It was like watching a two-person performance of ’12 Angry Men’ where one actor played one part, and the other was mad enough for the other 11.”

After CNN’s Dana Bash apologized for her crude language, Meyers said that she shouldn’t worry because after such a debate, CNN host “Wolf Blitzer could show up in full BDSM gear screaming the lyrics to ‘Wop’ and it still wouldn’t have been the crudest thing to happen last night. It would have been the most fun thing. You know, we’ve got a couple more debates left, Wolf.”

Meyers turned to the conspiracy theories flooding the airwaves ahead of the debate. In fact, Fox News spent the entire day leading up to the debate portraying former Vice President Joe Biden as if he couldn’t even speak, much less stand at a podium without knocking it over like Chevy Chase in SNL. At one point, in particular, Rudy Giuliani claimed he “interviewed” several “doctors” about dementia, and they diagnosed Biden with having it. But Meyers wasn’t so sure they were interviews as much as they were Giuliani’s own personal exams.

“Were you wearing a gown that tied in the back?” Meyers asked.

“These interviews were so secret they didn’t want me taking notes, so they tied my hands together,” Meyers mocked, showing Giuliani in a straight jacket.

He went on to knock the Fox & Friends hosts for staying so stoned face they were like “tourists watching a homeless man take a dump on the F train.” He also quibbled with Brit Hume’s attack on Biden that he’s “hiding” that he’s “senile.”

“Seems to me that if you have it together enough to hide that you’re senile, you might not be senile,” said Meyers. “Pretty sure if you’re suffering from dementia it would show up at the debate. In fact, I’m pretty sure it did. Seriously, everyone watching that debate had flashbacks to arguing with a drunk friend to hand over his car keys.”

Since it became obvious that Biden wasn’t in any kind of cognitive decline, Fox had to quickly switch tactics, suggesting that he was on drugs instead. Meyers explained that if anyone is on drugs, it’s got to be Fox News, because every time one turns over to the channel, they act like they’ve just finished doing blow in a bathroom at CBGB. They act like coked-up screenwriters pitching ideas. ‘So what if he like, has, I don’t know, he’s like, a secret earpiece? He gets questions in advance, but he’s senile, and you can’t tell because he got a shot of adrenalin in his heart just like, uh, Pulp Fiction. WOO!”

Meyers explained that if Biden had an earpiece, he’d have the old ones with the curly wire that looked like a Secret Service agent, and he’d get too excited and “pretend like he was an undercover cop at a drug bust.”

In the end, Trump’s only option was to rant and rave like a rabid lunatic because he has no real ideas about issues, no record to stand on, no progress on his promises, and an inability to stand up to white supremacists. His only chance of remaining in power, Meyers said, is by undermining the election and creating violence if he loses.

‘Zombie’ Trump campaign blasted by conservative strategist: ‘They’re going to be among the Walking Dead’

Published

on

President Donald Trump's campaign decisions were ridiculed by a conservative campaign strategist on MSNBC.

"The Week" anchor Joshua Johnson interviewed Susan Del Percio, a longtime GOP strategist and senior advisor to the Lincoln Project.

"Susan, what about the differences in strategy between the Biden campaign and the Trump campaign in terms of how they spend their dollars? We know that Trump campaign has often favored online advertising vs. on air advertising. They have some pretty creative stuff coming out in the last few days, one of the latest pieces they put out is called 'How to Catch a Zombie, Doe Biden edition' -- with a picture of Joe Biden, I think, between words so he looks a little zonked out."

Trump’s attacks on voting ‘backfired and only inspired people to march early to the polls’: report

Published

on

Clark County Registrar of Voters Joseph Gloria has had three decades of election experience in Nevada, but had never seen a "perfect storm," as he called it, like this before. With all hands on deck for this election cycle, Gloria helped put together an entire mail-in voting system in less than 90 days to deal with the coronavirus pandemic.

“I’m as comfortable as I can be because I have an excellent staff,” Gloria said. “We learned some things in the primary and are feeling good about this cycle, but unfortunately we have people at the national level who are encouraging people to do things that disrupt the polling place and make it a challenge for us to process votes.”

Watch Kamala Harris laugh out loud when 60 Minutes asks her if Trump is racist

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) laughed when asked if President Donald Trump was racist during a 60 Minutes interview that aired Sunday evening on CBS.

"Do you think the president is racist?" Nora O'Donnell asked.

"Yes, I do," Harris replied, with a laugh. "Yeah, I do."

"You can look at a pattern that goes back to him questioning the identity of the first Black president of the United States," she said, referring to the racist "birther" conspiracy theory he pushed against Barack Obama.

"You can look at Charlottesville, when there were peaceful protesters and on the other side neo-Nazis and he talks about fine people on either side," she continued. "Calling Mexicans rapists and criminals? His first order of business was to institute a Muslim ban?"
