On Tuesday night, Seth Meyers had some fun at the expense of outgoing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. Meyers began by poking fun at the way Tillerson reportedly found out that he was fired, which was by tweet from President Trump. “Even when you get fired from a Domino’s, the manager takes you to that crappy little office and tells you to your face,” Meyers said. “Tweets are for finding out which band is in town or which airline was mean to Christine Teigen.” The Late Night host then insisted that Trump didn’t fire Tillerson to his face, like he didn’t with former FBI Director James Comey, is because he doesn’t want to give anyone over six feet tall “bad news,” which he added is why the president is “jumping at the chance” to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. Meyers mocked Tillerson, saying he “always Continue reading "Seth Meyers on Tillerson Firing: Hopefully It Will End This ‘Myth’ That ‘Serious People Can Rein in Trump’"
On Wednesday night, Seth Meyers eviscerated President Trump for his desires to have a military parade in Washington D.C. Reports broke this week that the president told the Pentagon that he wanted a parade like the one he witnessed in France when he visited for Bastille Day and that now it’s “being worked at the highest levels of the military.” “So you’re just going full dictator now,” Meyers reacted. “Just ‘dick’ wasn’t enough.” The Late Night host mockingly insisted they’ll be enough room for tanks on Pennsylvania Ave. judging from the lack of crowds in Trump’s Inaugural Parade. “Man, you had your chance to be in the military and you dodged it,” Meyers told Trump. “If you want to hold a parade for something you yourself actively avoided, why not throw an IRS Parade or a Parade of Personal Trainers?” Meyers poked fun at the reports Continue reading "Seth Meyers Rips Trump’s Military Parade: ‘So You’re Just Going Full Dictator Now’"
On Wednesday night, New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman sat down with Seth Meyers to discuss how President Trump views the job as Commander in Chief as well as the media coverage of him. Meyers expressed how convinced he was that Trump thought being president was “going to be easy” and asked Haberman where she thought that came from. She responded by saying she didn’t think he thought much about what the job “would entail.” “I remember having a conversation with someone close to him during — I think it was June of 2016,” Haberman said, “and I said, ‘Does he want to win? Just win? Or does he actually want to be president? And the person stopped and said, ‘That’s a really good question.” She told the Late Night host that she believed that his “view of executive power” was formed in the ’80s when New York Continue reading "NYT’s Maggie Haberman: Trump ‘Loves’ Watching the News Change After He Tweets"
Seth Meyers, host of this year’s Golden Globes, ended his opening monologue rejecting perceptions of Hollywood as an industry of elites. After doing a bit with Amy Poehler, Meyers pointed out that the former Parks and Recreation star brought with her activist Saru Jayaraman to the Globes, as part of the “Times Up” campaign for gender and racial justice. “I know if you’re watching at home, and you see everyone in their tuxedos and gowns, this looks like a room of privileged Hollywood elite,” Meyers said. “And that’s fair. But everyone in this room knows that Hollywood is so much more than that. When you’re on a film set you meet hairdressers, and camera people, and script supervisors.” “Most of the jobs on film sets are jobs for people who work long, hard hours. They are American dream jobs. Those people aren’t there thanks to their rich Continue reading "Seth Meyers Delivers Impassioned Rebuttal of ‘Hollywood Elite’ Putdowns"
NBC Late Night host Seth Meyers kicked off this year’s Golden Globe Awards by immediately facing the elephant in the room — Hollywood’s culture of sexual misconduct. “Good evening ladies and remaining gentlemen,” said Meyers — getting straight to the underlying theme of the night. With the film industry attempting to confront the problem by wearing all-black attire and promoting the pro-women #TimesUp initiative, Meyers used his monologue to launch an all-out attack against the industry’s scandal-ridden men, including Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey. In his best burn of the segment, the talk show host nailed the 65-year-old disgraced film mogul Weinstein with a crack about his future death. “It’s time to address the elephant not-in-the-room: Harvey Weinstein. But don’t worry, he’ll be back in 20 years when he’s the first person to be booed in their memoriam,” said Meyers to a crowd that responded with lots of “oh shit!

For the last time in 2017, Seth Meyers went after President Trump for propping up his own accomplishments. The Late Night host first mocked Trump’s insistence that he came up with the term “tax cuts” instead of using the term “tax reform.” “Oh my God! Do you really think you came up with the phrase, ‘tax cuts?’ Those are literally the two most popular words in the history of politics!” Meyers reacted. “That’s right, Trump claims he invented the phrase, ‘tax cuts.’ That is so fake, the only thing that would be more fake is claiming you came up with the word ‘fake.'” As Meyers noted, Trump did once claim he coined the term “fake news.” The host continued with Trump’s “delusional self-congratulations” to his cabinet meeting, where he claimed his administration has done “like no administration has done.” “You passed one bill! Continue reading "Seth Meyers Mocks Trump’s ‘Delusional’ Self-Congratulations: ‘You Passed One Bill!’"
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"
