Seth Meyers went in on Donald Trump and different conservatives in his A Nearer Look section yesterday on Late Night time with Seth Meyers, calling them out for ignoring any actual points and for Trump utilizing his platform solely to whine about unfair media protection — particularly his 60 Minutes interview with Lesley Stahl.
“It’s nonetheless simply stunning to me the way in which that grown adults on the suitable whine and moan about not getting particular therapy. Yesterday, for instance, Trump threatened to launch footage from an interview he agreed to do with 60 Minutes correspondent Lesley Stahl after angrily storming out,” Meyers says. (Trump has already made good on that promise by tweeting out video from his interview this morning.)
Certainly one of Trump’s indignant claims towards Stahl was that she didn’t put on a masks at instances, to which Meyers says in his section, “Oh, so your massive gotcha second is you caught Lesley Stahl not sporting a masks for what, six seconds? It will shock you however we’ve blockbuster footage of you not sporting a masks at principally each public occasion you’ve ever achieved. Why does Trump suppose this argument is a winner? Lesley Stahl wasn’t sporting a masks for six seconds after an interview, in the meantime, the day earlier than he examined constructive for COVID Trump was tossing hats right into a packed crowd just like the Phoenix Suns gorilla.”
Meyers’ section was taped earlier than Trump really did launch the footage he hinted that viewers would see her “fixed interruptions & anger,” in distinction to his personal “full, flowing and ‘magnificently good’ solutions,” and whereas we predict Meyers’ section was humorous, nothing is funnier than “full, flowing and magnificently good,” as a descriptor to something.
In response, 60 Minutes preemptively launched a section of the interview, in addition to an announcement about Trump’s tried sabotage of their content material.
“The White Home’s unprecedented determination to ignore their settlement with CBS Information and launch their footage won’t deter 60 Minutes from offering its full, honest and contextual reporting which presidents have participated in for many years, reads a portion of CBS’ assertion concerning the scenario.
“Trump and his toadies can whine concerning the media all they need,” Meyers wrapped up his section, saving his most savage indictment of Trump for final, “nevertheless it doesn’t change the essential story of the marketing campaign. Almost 300,000 extra People have died this 12 months than in any other case would have, and eight million have gone into poverty and it may have been prevented. Keep in mind that when Trump involves your city, tells you he doesn’t need to be there, after which asks, ‘Could I please have your vote?’”
