Seth Meyers Mocks Trump’s ‘Delusional’ Self-Congratulations: ‘You Passed One Bill!’
For the last time in 2017, Seth Meyers went after President Trump for propping up his own accomplishments.
The Late Night host first mocked Trump’s insistence that he came up with the term “tax cuts” instead of using the term “tax reform.”
“Oh my God! Do you really think you came up with the phrase, ‘tax cuts?’ Those are literally the two most popular words in the history of politics!” Meyers reacted. “That’s right, Trump claims he invented the phrase, ‘tax cuts.’ That is so fake, the only thing that would be more fake is claiming you came up with the word ‘fake.'”
As Meyers noted, Trump did once claim he coined the term “fake news.”
The host continued with Trump’s “delusional self-congratulations” to his cabinet meeting, where he claimed his administration has done “like no administration has done.”
“You passed one bill!” Meyers exclaimed. “And people are so enthusiastic about you that Alabama elected a Democratic senator.”
He mocked Vice President Mike Pence for his glowing remarks of Trump, joking that Trump was like, “Dude, I’m married.” Meyers also targeted the “lackeys” GOPers that were “stroking his ego” at the White House while celebrating the passing of the tax reform bill.
“Man, even Waylon Smithers is like, ‘Have some dignity!'” Meyers quipped.
