On Wednesday night, NBC host Seth Meyers torched President Trump over the news that he had pushed the White House counsel for prosecutions of Hillary Clinton and James Comey, the former F.B.I. director. He also called Trump a “wannabe dictator” and a “gullible Fox News viewer.”
“So not only is the president a wannabe dictator who thinks he can jail whoever he wants, he also genuinely believes all the insane stuff he sees on Fox News,” the late show host said. “Trump probably sits there all day watching Fox and shouting to his aides: ‘Prosecute Hillary! Stop the caravan! And ask my doctor if Otezla is right for me! Why can’t I have Otezla?’”
Meyers also pointed to Trump’s criticism of a judge who ruled against his administration’s asylum policy; Trump called him “an Obama judge.” That drew a hard rebuke from the chief justice of the Supreme Court, John Roberts.
“Chief Justice John Roberts today defended federal judges and said, quote, ‘We do not have Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges.’ They do, however, have two judges appointed by Grover Cleveland” Meyers said while showing photos of Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 85, and Stephen Breyer, 80.
