On Thursday night, Seth Meyers had some fun at the expense of Omarosa Manigault. Yesterday, news broke that the former Apprentice star and longtime Donald Trump ally will be leaving her role at the White House. She reportedly “blew up” and was physically removed from the premises. Meyers mocked that no one knew exactly what she did on behalf of the Trump administration, except for when she held a wedding photo shoot with her 39-person bridal party. Omarosa appeared on Good Morning America Thursday morning to refute the reports that she was fired and that she was escorted out of the White House. She told Michael Strahan that she and Gen. John Kelly had a conversation in the Situation Room. “Wow, the Situation Room,” Meyers reacted, “though I have a feeling any room Omarosa walks into becomes the Situation Room. Seriously, you know it’s bad when they have to fire Continue reading "Seth Meyers Mocks Omarosa’s Firing: Any Room She Walks Into Becomes The Situation Room"
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 Monday night, Seth Meyers ripped President Trump, who he believes will go down as the “neediest and the most insecure president.” Meyers ridiculed Trump’s support for GOP Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore who has been accused of child molestation and the tweet he made calling his Democratic opponent Doug Jones a “puppet” of Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi. “I’m sorry, he’s the puppet?!?” Meyers asked. “You’re telling people to vote for a guy who looks like Howdy Doody‘s alcoholic brother-in-law.” The Late Night host then slammed the president for questioning the authenticity of the now-infamous Access Hollywood tape. “Wait, you’re claiming that the Access Hollywood tape is fake?!?” Meyers said in shock. “Are you insane?!?… Oh, right.” Meyers pointed out that Trump “admitted it was real” and mocked Trump’s struggle to get off the bus as seen on the tape itself, Continue reading "Seth Meyers Slams Trump For Claiming The Access Hollywood Tape Isn’t Authentic: ‘Are You Insane?!?’"
It’s Monday afternoon and we already have a leading contender for Worst Take of the Week. Forbes published a blog post from a contributor titled, “The Golden Globes Need A Feminist Host This Year, And Seth Meyers Fits The Bill” — and Twitter erupted shortly after with mockery. The publication’s tweet featuring the post was quickly ratio’d — a term referencing the number of outraged replies a post receives vs. combined likes and retweets — as the Twitter mentions belonging to the Forbes entertainment account quickly descended into the internet equivalent of a dumpster fire. To justify the outrageous proposition, Forbes contributor Carey Purcell mentioned the “onslaught of sexual harassment charges” that have been leveled against the entertainment industry — as well as all other industries of power. “[Meyers] has repeatedly proven himself to be a feminist ally, is the perfect person to stand behind the mic,” said Purcell.
