#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 […]

Schneiderman

#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.

Sessions

#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

Checking in on the president’s often-repeated campaign promise to reform the business of government — by banning lobbyists, enforcing ethics, and stemming the influence of big money — Seth Meyers finds that the swamp is just as dank and dismal as ever.

#EndorseThis: A Closer Look At Paul Ryan, Hypocrite And Fraud

#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.

#EndorseThis: Seth Meyers Surveys Trump Chaos, From Capitol Hill To Mar A Lago

Taking “a closer look” at the House Intelligence Committee hearing, Meyers is bemused by the behavior of the House Republicans, who were keen to discuss anything but the bombshell FBI director Comey laid before them.

So committee chair Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) asked whether the Russians had somehow changed vote tallies in specific states — Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Florida, North Carolina, or Ohio — an allegation that nobody has ever made.

Seth Meyers on Trump's second chaotic week

#EndorseThis: Seth Meyers Presents The Mind-Boggling Sean Spicer

Among Trump’s imbecile moments was his remark at a Black History Month event, praising the abolitionist leader Frederick Douglass as if he were a living civil rights leader. “He didn’t know Douglass was dead!” exclaimed Seth Meyers, noting that the great author, editor, and diplomat passed away back in 1895. “Yeah, keep your eye on that Fred Douglass kid!”

#EndorseThis: Trump’s Worried Aides Leaking All Over His New Presidency

What the torrent of leaks suggest is that those same worried aides — the GOP appartchiks who lie publicly on Trump’s behalf about voter fraud, the size of the Inauguration Day crowd on the National Mall, and scores of other topics — are now telling the truth ” off the record” to White House reporters. Seth Meyers takes “a closer look” at the weird fugue state of the White House,

#EndorseThis: The Latest Funny Lie Uttered By Reince Priebus

#EndorseThis: Seth Meyers Looks Back At 2016’s Political Train-wreck

Late Night host Seth Meyers reviews many of the most amusing moments we might have forgotten, following a year we may well prefer to forget: from Clinton’s awkward appeal for the youth vote to the trashy insult contest between Marco Rubio and Trump that concluded with the latter advertising his genitalia. He clearly feels special affection for Ben Carson, Trump’s clueless nominee for housing secretary, whose long, strange political trip culminates in a remarkable moment.

In “Tweetin’ with the Prez,” Seth Meyers reviews Trump’s latest online humiliations, with a focus on his China blowup over the undersea drone picked up (and then returned) by the Chinese Navy. As usual the Late Night host offers accurate context for that episode, far less flattering than the spin offered by Trump’s minions.

Seth Meyers examines Trump's Russian hacking scandal

#EndorseThis: Did Trump Try To Frame Christie For Russian Hacking?

During the campaign, Trump went so far as to hint that a “400-pound guy at his home in New Jersey” hacked those Democratic emails. Was he trying to frame the nefarious Chris Christie? Now, instead of taking daily intelligence briefings, he’s on a campaign-style tour of rallies, handing out hideous hats.
