Seth Meyers has a couple things to say about Trump’s Supreme Court nominee

“Americans only like reality shows because they have nothing to do with reality. No one would enjoy The Bachelor if it had real world consequences. ‘If he gives her the rose, abortions will be illegal!'”

Seth Meyers had “A Couple Things” to say about President Trump’s announcement of Judge Neil Gorsuch as his pick for the Supreme Court. As many have noted, the whole affair seemed like a reality show presentation. Trump scheduled the announcement for primetime, allegedly invited his runner-up to Washington to create suspense, and ended his speech with, “So was that a surprise?”

As Meyers pointed out, nothing can surprise us now, and “Americans only like reality shows because they have nothing to do with reality. No one would enjoy The Bachelor if it had real world consequences. ‘If he gives her the rose, abortions will be illegal!’”

Meyers also remarked on a continuing theme with Trump’s administration. “Anyone who was hoping for a woman or a person of color was kidding themselves. It was always going to be a white guy,” said Meyers. “Neil Gorsuch looks like the silhouette Facebook gives you when you don’t have a profile picture yet. Next to Neil Gorsuch, Merrick Garland looks like soul brother number one.”
