Seth Meyers never fails to satisfy when it comes to delivering a punch to Donald Trump and his administration.
This week on Thursday’s “Late Night” he used his “A Closer Look” segment to talk about Trump’s low approval ratings, and how recent events have not helped him with the matter.
Trump’s approval ratings fell as low as 35% this week, marking his lowest approval rating since taking office.
“This is supposed to be the honeymoon period,” Meyers said. “And Trump should be good at those. He’s had three of them.
“To give you some perspective, 35% is worse than Richard Nixon’s approval rating during Watergate and George W. Bush’s approval rating after Hurricane Katrina.”
But what’s the reason for such low numbers? Well it’s been a very hectic few weeks for the Republican party. From the failure of the Republican healthcare plan, to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes’ recent actions that have brought forth doubt in the committee’s investigation into Russia, and to Trump selling American’s online privacy to major corporations, it all plays into Trump being so highly disliked.
These are subjects Meyers touched on as to why people don’t approve of Trump. He went on to add the ridiculousness of having Nunes get intelligence information from the White House just to turn around and tell Trump about it.
“That means Nunes went to the White House to brief Trump on information he got from the White House,” Meyers said. “It’s like when you send yourself an email reminder, and two minutes later go, ‘Oh, a new email!'”
