Seth Meyers recaps Trump’s weird and chaotic second week in office

Donald Trump has only been in office two weeks, but already he has had one of the most controversial presidencies of all time. On Thursday’s Late Night, Seth Meyers took a “Closer Look” at Trump’s second week in office and pointed out that it “has been as chaotic as his first.” He faced resistance to his travel ban, held bizarre phone calls with foreign leaders, and even botched a Black History Month speech by talking about Frederick Douglass as if he were still alive.

When asked about the Douglass remark, press secretary Sean Spicer also seemed to think he was alive. “Who among us wouldn’t panic if asked to recite stuff we learned in high school,” Meyers remarked, “but how did you not have time between the president’s comments and your press briefing to Google Frederick Douglass? And not his whole biography, but simple stuff like, ‘Is Frederick Douglass alive?’”

Meyers touched again on the backlash to Trump’s immigration order. When asked about the travel ban, Spicer said it’s not a ban and the lying media has gotten it wrong. “Yeah, where could the lying, dishonest media possibly get the idea that this is a ban?” Cue clips of Spicer, Trump, and Kellyanne Conway calling it a ban. “That’s a classic case of gotcha journalism, in that they gotcha on camera saying ‘ban’ like a million times!”
