The one-time cast member, head writer and anchor of Weekend Update also returned to the Weekend Update desk to skewer Kanye West in the Oval Office in a segment borrowed from his Late Night Show called “Really?!” “So Kanye West in the Oval Office? Really? Don’t you have better things to do? And by the way, when I say that, I’m really not sure which of you I’m talking to,” Meyers said after sitting down at the desk with Colin Jost and Michael Che. He also said this, referring to the Trump-Kanye hug: “It’s not every day you get to see white supremacists and black people betrayed in the exact same way.” The best line of the sketch, though, may have gone to Jost, who offered this analysis: “It’s really  pretty simple: Kanye wants to be Trump’s Continue reading "Seth Meyers Returns to SNL’s Weekend Update Desk to Talk Kanye West"

Seth Meyers Rips Kavanaugh’s Virgin Defense: Celibacy Doesn’t Dismiss Assault, ‘Just Ask Thousands of Priests’

On Tuesday night, Seth Meyers blasted Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh for his recent interview on Fox News. In a segment called “Couple Things,” Meyers began by blasting Kavanaugh’s defense he gave to Martha MacCallum that he was a virgin during high school and college. “It does not matter if you were a virgin. You are being accused of sexual assault, not sexual intercourse. Those things have nothing to do with each other.” Meyers told Kavanaugh. “Devoting yourself to celibacy doesn’t mean you can’t be a sexual assaulter. Just ask thousands of priests.” The Late Night host advised Kavanaugh to stop saying he’s “friends with women.” “Just because you’re friends with one woman, doesn’t mean you haven’t been awful to another,” Meyers continued. “That’s like saying you’re a vegetarian because you didn’t eat your dog.” He dinged the SCOTUS nominee for having his wife sit Continue reading "Seth Meyers Rips Kavanaugh’s Virgin Defense: Celibacy Doesn’t Dismiss Assault, ‘Just Ask Thousands of Priests’"

Late Night Comedians Have a Field Day With Stormy’s Description of Trump’s Junk

Late night, naturally, had a field day with one particularly salacious allegation from Stormy Daniels‘ upcoming memoir, copies of which were sent to reporters this week. Stormy — the porn star who President Donald Trump made sign a nondisclosure agreement during the 2016 election to keep quiet about an alleged affair — describes in her book, Full Disclosure, Trump’s penis in graphic detail. “It has a huge mushroom head. Like a toadstool,” Daniels writes. “I lay there, annoyed that I was getting fucked by a guy with Yeti pubes and a dick like the mushroom character in Mario Kart.” Safe to say that revelation devastated fans of Toad, the beloved Nintendo character, but it delighted late-night comics. Jimmy Fallon first joked that every copy of Full Disclosure “comes with a bottle of Pepto-Bismol and a straw.” Fallon tried his best to avoid mentioning the president’s “Trump Continue reading "Late Night Comedians Have a Field Day With Stormy’s Description of Trump’s Junk"

Seth Meyers Blasts GOPers For ‘Rushing to Defend’ Kavanaugh, Says Allegation is ‘Indeed Credible’

If you’re accused of sexual assault and you just happen to have on-hand a list of other women you didn’t sexually assault,” Meyers reacted. “If the cops come to your house and say they want to ask you about a murder and you come to the door with a list of people you didn’t murder, you’ll still be a suspect in that murder.” The Late Night host blasted “Republicans and right-wing pundits” for going on the offensive “despite the seriousness of these allegations,” citing Fox News host Judge Jeanine Continue reading "Seth Meyers Blasts GOPers For ‘Rushing to Defend’ Kavanaugh, Says Allegation is ‘Indeed Credible’"
