Seth Meyers took a “Closer Look” on Monday’s Late Night at President Trump’s upcoming speech to Congress. “President Trump will address Congress for the first time on Tuesday to discuss his agenda, which could be difficult, since his agenda so far has consisted largely of complaints about the media.”
In a speech Monday morning, Trump previewed the address by rambling about everything from missing tiles on the Lincoln Tunnel ceiling to how complicated healthcare is. “Nobody knew health care could be so complicated?” Meyers said, repeating Trump’s words. “The only way that sentence could be more terrifying is if you heard it just as the anesthesia was kicking in.”
“Then there’s the question of what kind of tone we can expect from Trump’s speech tomorrow,” Meyers mused. “Up to now, when Trump has discussed actual policy, he usually does so in bleak terms, as he did in his inaugural address.” Meyers showed that even George W. Bush finds Trump’s mood to be a little ridiculous.
“Tomorrow’s a huge opportunity for Trump. He has the chance to sell Americans on his agenda rather than whine about the free press, and he will have the weight of history on his shoulders.”
