Seth Meyers Slams Trump For Claiming The Access Hollywood Tape Isn’t Authentic: ‘Are You Insane?!?’

On Monday night, Seth Meyers ripped President Trump, who he believes will go down as the “neediest and the most insecure president.”

Meyers ridiculed Trump’s support for GOP Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore who has been accused of child molestation and the tweet he made calling his Democratic opponent Doug Jones a “puppet” of Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi.

“I’m sorry, he’s the puppet?!?” Meyers asked. “You’re telling people to vote for a guy who looks like Howdy Doody‘s alcoholic brother-in-law.”

The Late Night host then slammed the president for questioning the authenticity of the now-infamous Access Hollywood tape.

“Wait, you’re claiming that the Access Hollywood tape is fake?!?” Meyers said in shock. “Are you insane?!?… Oh, right.”

Meyers pointed out that Trump “admitted it was real” and mocked Trump’s struggle to get off the bus as seen on the tape itself, proving the tape is real.

“That is so dumb that no one would think to fake that!” he exclaimed.

He also dinged Nancy Pelosi’s interview on Meet The Press yesterday for insisting that her alleged sexual harasser colleague Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) will “do the right thing” and that he’s an “icon.”

“No! He’s in this position because he allegedly did the wrong thing!” Meyers reacted. “You can’t say that guy who did the wrong thing will do the right thing. Also, it doesn’t matter if he’s an icon. If anything, it makes it worse. ‘I’m an icon’ is a sexual harasser’s catch phrase.”
