#EndorseThis: Dark Russian Comedy With Donald Trump Junior

Evenhanded in his political scorn, Seth Meyers cracks wise about Al Franken, whose forced resignation from the Senate in the wake of sexual harassment allegations clearly disappointed his old friend. But then Meyers moves on briskly to a target who must inspire far less ambivalent feelings: Donald Trump Jr. During eight hours of closed testimony […]

#EndorseThis: In Watergate Sequel, Which Role Will Kushner Play?

The Russia probe increasingly resembles the worst days of Watergate: A crooked Attorney General who suffers from catastrophic memory loss; top White House aides who similarly cannot “recollect” their own incriminating activities; other top aides (or former top aides) talking with prosecutors and Congressional investigators; and a president in denial about his own grim prospects. […]

#EndorseThis: Seth Meyers Scorches Trump And Junior Over Wikileaks

Now that we know Donald Trump, Jr., secretly communicated with Wikileaks during the 2016 presidential campaign, it may be slightly harder for the president to distance himself from accusations of collusion in the Russia probe. Nor did Trump senior didn’t help himself by declaring his faith in Vladimir Putin’s denial that the Kremlin interfered in […]

#EndorseThis: Are Corker And Flake Heroes? Seth Meyers Thinks Not

Lionized for denouncing the authoritarian, plainly deranged president, Senators Bob Corker and Jeff Flake are a pair of unlikely heroes. After all, as Seth Meyers recalls, they were all too happy to support Donald Trump for president last year — long after the casino developer’s personality and political defects were obvious. Now Corker complains that […]

#EndorseThis: Seth Meyers Looks Hard At Trump, Pence, And Corker Too

Of all the unintentionally hilarious moments in Mike Huckabee’s groveling interview with Donald Trump (his daughter Sarah’s boss) Seth Meyers picks up what may be the funniest. Stumbling in his diction as always, the president claims he never heard anyone use the word “fake” before he did — an assertion Seth finds impossible to believe […]

#EndorseThis: Seth Meyers Tracks ‘Moron’ To Puerto Rico And Beyond

Of all the embarrassing moments during Trump’s trip to Puerto Rico, Seth Meyers thinks the most revealing was his conversation with a woman distributing water purification tablets at a church. Not only did the president sound rudely insensitive to the desperation of those who must drink purified water — but he seemed to suspect that […]

Puerto Rico

#EndorseThis: Seth Meyers Lambastes Trump Over Puerto Rico Crisis

Among the primary responsibilities of any American president is to reassure and comfort suffering citizens in time of disaster — a test that Donald Trump fails miserably, as when he tweeted a reminder to Puerto Rico that its government “owes money to Wall Street.” Duly outraged by Trump’s dim response to the humanitarian crisis on […]

#EndorseThis: In Storms’ Wake, Can America Rely On Ben Carson? Don’t Ask

With thousands of federal workers engaged in ongoing rescue and recovery efforts in Florida, Texas, and across the region battered by recent hurricanes, Americans will soon be looking to Washington for vital assistance in rebuilding – as provided by government after hurricanes Katrina and Sandy. But much of that hope resides in the Department of […]

#EndorseThis: Seth Meyers Blows Away White House Storm Response

Praising the Coast Guard rescue effort or lamenting the impact of Florida flooding shouldn’t be too demanding for the White House. But this is the Trump White House, where the president babbles about “branding,” the social media guru is highly experienced as a golf caddy, and everybody denies climate change. None of this clowning impressed […]

Anthony Atamanuik, host — you could say — of The President Show on Comedy Central guested on Seth Meyers’s Late Night on Tuesday. He explained the origin of his knockout Trump impression, which started as an audience suggestion at an improv show, grew into a nationwide tour, and ended up a cable TV show.

#EndorseThis: Seth Meyers Initiates Anthony “The Mooch” Scaramucci

#EndorseThis: Seth Meyers Talks To The New York AG Who Sued Trump University

It’s a tall task to get anyone to watch a late-night comedy show with special guest: a government lawyer. Unless that government lawyer is Eric Schneiderman, the New York attorney general who filed a successful $40 million civil lawsuit against Trump University. For Schneiderman’s efforts, now-President Donald Trump directed a characteristically ham-fisted Twitter tantrum @AGSchneiderman.

#EndorseThis: Seth Meyers Translates Trumpcare’s Language Of Lies

Seth Meyers is an honest man, but he can speak the prevaricating lingo of the Republicans, also known as big lies. When HHS Secretary Tom Price or Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA) spin the latest version of the “health care bill,” Meyers translates those whoppers with ease. (Cassidy’s slippery defense of the Senate bill is especially […]

#EndorseThis: Seth Meyers Trolls Kushner, Trump, And Sekulow

These aren’t fun times for Donald Trump, who felt disappointed when the nation didn’t rise up to sing “Happy Birthday” in unison as he turned 71 last week. He even got dissed in the Oval Office by the president of Panama,who muttered “100 years ago” when Trump sounded as if he was taking credit for […]

#EndorseThis: Kate McKinnon Nails That Sessions Impression

There is no more talented comic actor working today than Kate McKinnon, the Saturday Night Live star renowned for her portrayal of Kellyanne Conway. But she also does a mean Jeff Sessions impression — and admits that he’s her favorite. So McKinnon felt slightly frustrated this week when the attorney general showed up to defend […]

#EndorseThis: Watch Seth Meyers Freeze-Frame Jeff Sessions

Commenting on Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ Senate Intelligence Committee testimony on Tuesday, Meyers flashes back to his earlier appearance before the before the Judiciary Committee, when he wrongly told Senator Al Franken (D-MN) that he’d had no contact with Russian officials in 2016. Meyers freezes the camera on Sessions’ face after that exchange — a moment that is worth the click all by itself.

#EndorseThis: Seth Meyers Scrutinizes Those Trump Alibis

Seth Meyers opens his “closer look” at the ongoing Comey-Trump showdown with a backward glance — recalling how the president and his minions defended their current target last fall, when the FBI director endured withering criticism from…Democrats. But returning quickly to the present, Meyers scrutinizes the various Trump alibis for his blatant attempts to derail […]

#EndorseThis: Seth Meyers Ventures Into Trump’s Undrained Swamp

#EndorseThis: Seth Meyers Takes A Closer Look At Trump’s 100 Days

To Trump’s long list of broken promises and guarantees during his first 100 days, the Late Night host adds his recent backpedaling on the construction of the vaunted border wall. But if fans like Rush Limbaugh are disappointed, they can take comfort in one vow he may fulfill: to cut taxes for corporations, adding some big special tax benefits for the wealthiest Americans, such as the abolition of the alternative minimum and estate taxes.
