On Thursday night, Seth Meyers addressed the recent allegations and the announced resignation of Sen. Al Franken (D-MN). The Late Night host mocked the Democrat when he was asked after the first wave of allegations during an interview if there were more allegations to come, Franken said “I certainly hope not.” “That’s not an answer that inspires a lot of confidence,” Meyers reacted. “It’s like if a cop asked you, ‘If I search your car, am I going to find weed?’ and you’re like ‘I certainly hope not… also, do you have any Doritos?'” Meyers then noted Franken’s latest accuser who alleges that he put his hand on her waist, grabbed a handful of flesh, and squeezed at least twice. “Not only could you not do that to a woman you barely know, you can’t do that to your wife!” Meyers said. “Unless you’re in the Continue reading "Seth Meyers Hits Al Franken Over Latest Allegations: ‘You Can’t Do That To Your Wife!’"
On Wednesday night, Seth Meyers had some fun at the expense of GOP Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore. He took shots at President Trump for saying “all you can do is you have to do what you have to do” in defense of the judge. “All you can do is you have to do what you have to do?” Meyers reacted. “Sounds like a fortune cookie written by someone who is completely out of ideas.” The Late Night host then mocked Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for not being able to say Moore’s name during an interview last weekend, referring to him as “that particular candidate.” “Did you forget his name?” Meyers asked. “Because here’s a phrase to help you remember it: ‘He likes to wear cordu-ROY and he can’t go to the mall any MOORE.'” He slammed Moore campaign spokeswoman Jane Porter for citing Continue reading "Seth Meyers Mocks Roy Moore Spox For Citing ‘Group of Non-Accusers’: ‘Literally Their Best Argument’"
On Thursday night, Seth Meyers addressed the controversy surrounding his former NBC colleague Matt Lauer. The Late Night host mocked the fired Today Show anchor for the reported incident that allegedly took place at the Sochi Olympics in 2014. “And you thought the most disgusting thing at the Sochi Olympics was Bob Costa‘s pink eye!” Meyers joked. “Well move over, pink eye! There’s a new, grosser sheriff in town!” He then let Lauer explain how NBC News could let go “its most profitable and powerful figure” by playing a clip of him grilling Bill O’Reilly from an interview in September. “He was talking to Bill O’Reilly, but he could have just as easily been talking to a mirror,” Meyers said. Meyers ripped Lauer over the allegation that he gave a colleague a sex toy and a note that he wanted to use it on her. “As a general Continue reading "Seth Meyers Slams Matt Lauer: If You’re Asked to Install a Button Under a Desk, ‘Report It To The Police’"
On Thursday night, Seth Meyers took some shots at Fox News for their recent coverage. The Late Night host ripped Fox Businesses’ Lou Dobbs for his softball interview with President Trump. “Usually when you see an old dude slobber that much, he has a nurse with him,” Meyers quipped. He accused Fox News of being more interested in “the candidate that didn’t win” Hillary Clinton because of his unpopularity and scandals and played a montage of clips that refer to the latest Uranium One deal and Trump dossier developments as the “real Russia” collusion. Meyers then singled out Sean Hannity for being “obsessed” with the Trump dossier and mocked the “BMW Frankenstein” for repeating an embarrassing excerpt involving urine and Russian prostitutes. “Fox News would much rather talk about Hillary than Donald Trump,” Meyers said. ” That’s because the right in the Trump era doesn’t have coherent principles or an Continue reading "Seth Meyers Slams Fox News: ‘They Prefer To Have An Alternate Reality Where Hillary is President’"
Seth Meyers kicked off a new year of Late Night on Monday, and the show’s first order of business was taking a “Closer Look” at Donald Trump‘s need to seemingly tweet about every little thing in the world. Even though Trump’s top priority is to focus on his upcoming presidency, Meyers noted that the mogul has managed to find time to get on Twitter and complain about trivial matters like the new Celebrity Apprentice and what Meryl Streep had to say about him. Meyers found it amusing that Trump could retaliate by calling Streep “overrated,” when her Sunday night appearance was based on her lifetime of achievements in entertainment. “She’s so good,” Meyers said, “people use her to compliment people in other professions. Like LeBron James is the Meryl Streep of basketball, or Donald Trump is the Meryl Streep of having thin skin.” Meyers went on to say Continue reading "Seth Meyers Slams Trump’s ‘Unhinged’ Tweeting: He’s ‘the Meryl Streep of Having Thin Skin’"
Seth Meyers chided Hillary Clinton for her candor and word choice, saying that she showed poor judgment when she called half of Trump supporters a “basket of deplorables” at a fundraising speech last week. “What’s the matter, you couldn’t come up with an insult that sound like a richer, whiter lady?” he joked, observing that “basket of deplorables” sounds like a “bargain bin at Nieman Marcus.” Moreover, he said, she should have known that the news media would spend more time covering her calling out Trump supporters’ racism than actually covering Trump supporters’ racism. “Yeah, Donald Trump called Mexicans ‘rapists’ and has called you and your supporters a hundred different names, but there is a double standard in play in this election,” Meyers said. “Sure, it’s patently unfair, but you can’t play tit for tat with Donald Trump because the media is only talk about your tats and Continue reading "Seth Meyers Mocks Clinton’s ‘Deplorables’ Line For Poor Word Choice"
Activist and documentary filmmaker Michael Moore likes to tell the story of how he met now-Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump at a taping of Roseanne Barr’s talk show in 1998, and the real estate mogul begged Moore not to “pick on” him during the show. Moore related the anecdote in an open letter to Trump a few months ago, calling Trump a “fraidey-cat,” but on Monday night’s Late Night with Seth Meyers, Moore said he has since come to the conclusion that Trump’s display of apparent cowardice was merely a clever ruse, and spiced up the anecdote with some graphic advice for Trump:
Moore: I said, “You have nothing to worry about. Come on, we’re going to go out and have some fun with Roseanne.” I’m having to talk him off the ledge from this. Continue reading "Here’s Why Michael Moore Told Donald Trump to ‘Grow Some Gonads’ on Late Night"
