Chris Hayes Praises ‘Free Society’ That Allows Someone ‘Powerful’ Like Sarah Sanders to Get Kicked Out of Restaurant

MSNBC host Chris Hayes weighed in on the Red Hen showdown that took place over the weekend. Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was told to leave by the Lexington restaurant owner, which has since sparked a national conversation about a lack of civility. And when asked about what he thought, Hayes gave it a rather positive spin. And I don’t think it’s a bad impulse to have of, like, yeah, don’t yell at people. Or, be, you know- I get that. That’s a human and understandable part of people’s impulses around this stuff. And, generally, I think that’s a good guiding post for people,” Hayes told Seth Meyers. “I will say this that, look, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, for example, is one of the most powerful people in the world. And in a very real and tangible sense the defining feature of a free society is that you can tell one Continue reading "Chris Hayes Praises ‘Free Society’ That Allows Someone ‘Powerful’ Like Sarah Sanders to Get Kicked Out of Restaurant"

Seth Meyers Skewers Trump For Border Policy Lies, Fits in Roasting of Steve Doocy

Seth Meyers spent time on his show Wednesday night ripping President Donald Trump‘s lies and at one point even getting in a jab at Fox and Friends Steve Doocy. Speaking during “A Closer Look” segment, Meyers started by saying that Trump’s true political skill lies in the fact he has no shame. “Trump’s only political skill is his total and complete lack of shame,” Meyers said. “His malignant narcissism allows him to confidently and brazenly lie in the way that most other politicians would be too embarrassed to even try.” He then turned to Trump signing the executive order, stressing that Trump does not deserve credit when he created the problem himself. “You don’t get credit for solving a problem when you yourself created the problem,” Meyers continued on. “You can’t eat half a cheeseburger, put it down and say you’re a vegan—especially when everyone knows you’re just Continue reading "Seth Meyers Skewers Trump For Border Policy Lies, Fits in Roasting of Steve Doocy"

Jake Tapper on Bill Clinton’s Recent #MeToo Stumbles: I’m ‘Amazed’ How Poorly He’s Handled These Questions

Jake Tapper expressed how “stunned” he was about former President Bill Clinton‘s recent remarks about his affair with Monica Lewinsky and the #MeToo movement. Last week, Clinton launched a book tour for his thriller co-authored by James Patterson, which began poorly after he was seemingly caught off guard by the Today Show by questions pertaining to Lewinsky, specifically when asked if he thought he owes her an apology in person. And to make matters worse, Clinton insisted that the “norms have changed” regarding what you can do to women “against their will.” When asked about Clinton’s stumbles, Tapper began by believing his team tried to “prepare him” for such questions and was “amazed” at “how poorly” he has handled them. “I mean, a lot of them, you could have anticipated,” Tapper told Seth Meyers. “The world has changed in just the last year.” Tapper proved his Continue reading "Jake Tapper on Bill Clinton’s Recent #MeToo Stumbles: I’m ‘Amazed’ How Poorly He’s Handled These Questions"

Seth Meyers Blasts Trump For Canceled North Korea Summit: ‘He Had No Idea What He Was Doing’

Seth Meyers mocked President Trump over his cancellation of the North Korea summit that was scheduled to take place next month. Meyers began by telling his audience that he was “so excited” about the peace talks between Trump and North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un that he bought one of those commemorative coins from the White House website because he “wanted to be a part of history.” After expressing good wishes for the president, “breaking news” interrupted saying that he had cancelled the June 12 summit. “Damn it!” Meyers exclaimed as he chucked the coin away. “Although, it’s my fault. I should have learned my lesson after I bought my commemorative coins for the Completed Border Wall, Biggest Inauguration Ever, Anthony Scaramucci‘s First 100 Days On The Job, Cleared of All Charges, and People‘s Sexiest Man Alive.” The Late Night host insisted that Trump “made Continue reading "Seth Meyers Blasts Trump For Canceled North Korea Summit: ‘He Had No Idea What He Was Doing’"

Ronan Farrow on Rex Tillerson: He Told Me He Didn’t Know What He Was Doing As Secretary of State

Ronan Farrow spoke to Seth Meyers last night on Late Night, and he offered some interesting insight into what he learned about Rex Tillerson while writing his foreign policy book: War On Peace. After Meyers finished his mock White House press briefing, he spoke to Farrow about the former secretary of state’s very frank comments in the book. “Tillerson, if he had any logic, knew that he was going to be fired on some level,” Farrow said. “Maybe that’s why he’s so frank in this book. He basically says ‘I didn’t know what I was doing, I wasn’t experienced enough for it.'” Farrow continued to say that Tillerson blames the White House for his unceremonious dismissal earlier this year, but Farrow wasn’t “surprised” since “it is apparent to anyone looking at the State Department…that it’s become something of a dumpster fire.” Farrow called it a sad Continue reading "Ronan Farrow on Rex Tillerson: He Told Me He Didn’t Know What He Was Doing As Secretary of State"

Ethan Hawke: It’s Hard to Sell Movies Without Guns

Actor Ethan Hawke appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers and dished on the kind of movies that make money, and offered a conclusion based on his career in Hollywood: Guns sell, Hamlet doesn’t. Meyers noted that Hawke told him backstage that Shakespeare films don’t pay much, asking about the correlation between film content and pay for actors. “Shakespeare, no money, but you get really good lines,” Hawke explained. “You do some kind of unmentionable movie that nobody sees and you want people Googling and looking up so you don’t mention the titles, but you get paid a lot for them.” “There’s also a direct equation — you know there have been people talking so much about gun control in this country,” Hawke continued. “And I noticed recently, if you put in a column of every movie I ever did where I carry a gun, and every movie where I Continue reading "Ethan Hawke: It’s Hard to Sell Movies Without Guns"
