Finally someone on television penetrates to the core problem in the Trump White House — which, as Seth Meyers cogently explains, is that the president, his adult children, and many of his appointees, notably his new acting attorney general, are all grifters.

Just the other day, a new lawsuit filed in federal court accused Trump, Ivanka, Don Jr. and Eric of swindling investors in a pattern of fraud and racketeering.

He doesn’t seem to understand how elections or recounts work at all — since there is no evidence of fraud whatsoever. Seth makes it all clear, plus several bonus David Pecker jokes.

Click for laughs and try not to cry.
