Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

Nobody was surprised to see Donald Trump behave like “a sexist dick” at his Rose Garden press conference on Monday, but Seth Meyers has a theory about who inspired that particular episode. Perhaps he watched Brett Kavanaugh’s obnoxious performance last week in the Senate and thought: “Hey, I can top that!”

During that same press conference, Trump turned a question about Kavanaugh’s drinking to his own lifelong temperance: “Can you imagine if I had [taken a drink], what a mess I’d be? I’d be the worst!”

Of course inherent in the premise of that quip, as Meyers notes, “is that Trump sucks…He’s saying, if you think I’m an asshole now, imagine if I had a few beers!”

Seth also has a few choice words for Chuck Grassley, Lindsey Graham, and the rest of the sexist malefactors — as well as the truncated FBI investigation now under way.

Serious fun.
