|Late Night with Seth Meyers|
Seth Meyers addressed the recent news that President Trump attempted to fire Robert Mueller just weeks into the Special Counsel’s investigation into possible Russian interference in the 2016 election. According to sources, White House legal counsel Don McGahn threatened to quit if Trump moved forward in firing Mueller.
Meyers was in prime form as he ticked off the latest news from Trump Land.
• “Amazing. Trump is mad that he’s being investigated for obstruction of justice so his plan to get out of it is to obstruct justice. If Trump was the captain of the Titanic, his plan would be to hit a second iceberg.”
• “Why does he keep going out of his way to interfere with the investigation? There are two possible answers.”
“One, he’s guilty. Or two, he asked the FBI director for a pledge of loyalty, he asked him to stop his investigation into Michael Flynn, fired the FBI director, admitted he fired him because of the Russia investigation, bragged to the Russians that he did it because of the Russia investigation, pressured the attorney general not to recuse himself, pressured the heads of the intelligence agencies to intervene and tried to fire the special counsel who took over the Russia investigation…because he’s innocent?”
• Meyers also touched on reports that Trump called Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe (now pushed out of his job) the day James Comey was fired. Trump was angry that Comey flew home to Washington DC on a federal plane.
During the call, Trump “turned on McCabe, suggesting he ask his wife how it feels to be a loser—an apparent reference to a failed campaign for state office in Virginia that McCabe’s wife made in 2015.”
Said Meyers, “You told him to ask his wife what it’s like to be a loser?! You should ask your wife what it’s like to be married to one!”
