Seth Meyers found it “so cathartic” to see regular voters “put Trump in his place” during this week’s ABC City Hall, especially since it has become extremely rare at this point.
“This is what happens when Trump comes out of his right-wing media bubble,” the Deep night guest said. “Most of the time he surrounds himself with flatterers and yes men. So he’s rarely treated like the goofy idiot he is. “For example, instead of interrupting him when” he calls Fox & Friends and wanders for an hour, “Meyers said,” the hosts sit there, staring blankly at the camera as if they are posing for passport photos. ”
It was during Trump’s last appearance on that show that he attempted to push the groundless conspiracy theory that his rival Joe Biden is taking some sort of performance-enhancing medication.
“Trump and his supporters in the right-wing media have also been desperate to turn the presidential campaign into a referendum on candidates’ mental fitness,” Meyers later explained before showing viewers that clip. “I’m sorry, do you think Biden is on drugs?” churches. “You sniff as if you just came out of the bathroom in Studio 54”.
“So Trump wants you to think Joe Biden is the one in cognitive decline and yet when Trump defended his lie that the coronavirus would simply go away, he tried to claim that we would soon have herd immunity,” Meyers continued. , “which is lying and also incredibly dangerous without a vaccine. And what’s more, it seemed like he couldn’t remember the term.”
After playing the clip of the president talking about the importance of the “pack mentality”, the host joked: “If so, then I guess Trump supporters are already healed.”
“He meant herd immunity but he couldn’t remember it,” Meyers said. “You know, if Joe Biden is really taking a magic drug that gives him clarity, then maybe you should try some of that too. I mean, how much worse could it make you? Every time you do one of these crazy interviews, you seem like you’ve just finished blowing asbestos. ”
