Paul Ryan wrote Seth Meyers an email about the health care bill; of course he read it on air

Last week, Seth Meyers laid into Paul Ryan over the Republican replacement for Obamacare. As a result, Ryan emailed Meyers to clarify parts of the bill he thought Seth mischaracterized. On Monday’s Late Night, Seth took a “Closer Look” at the bill and reacted to Ryan’s email on air.

“Unlike Republicans and their health care bill, we actually read the whole email,” Meyers joked.

Reading parts of the bill, Meyers said, “They took issue with our characterization of the bill as rushed, writing, ‘This bill has been online for a month, went through four House committees, and the only change this week was a simple three-page amendment.’ Which is misleading for a number of reasons.”

“For one thing,” Meyers remarked, “that three-page amendment is the reason a lot of Republicans changed their mind and voted for this bill, so you can’t claim it’s a small change. A lot can happen in three pages. That’s like saying, ‘I made you a cappuccino with hot water, sugar, espresso, and one other ingredient.’ You would say, ‘Well, what’s the other ingredient, Mr. Cosby?'”

Meyers ripped into a few more bits of the email, but before he was finished, he invited Ryan onto the show to personally discuss the bill with him. Let’s hope Ryan takes him up on the offer.

  1. Only an idiot would vote in favor of a bill without reading the entire document. Of course this doesn’t surprise me with this administration. Our so called POTUS signs every scrap of paper that is put in his desk without reading it. So tired of this crap.

  2. Wow, Ryan is getting super defensive about his awful health care denial bill! Obviously it isn’t sitting well with him that late night hosts are calling out his bullshit since they have a larger audience than the “liberal” media.

  3. Lol. This shit show keeps getting better. Everyone let’s all get our shovels out and bury that party one at a time. Thank you Seth and Stephen and Jimmy for keeping the masses more informed than the mainstream media. You know the comedy is great in these times when even bernie bursts out hysterically.

  4. Seth Meyers cuts to the core of President Obama warning Trump not to hire Mike Flynn; Acting Attorney General testifies about Flynn and him being compromised by Russian blackmail which she told WH Attorney 3 weeks before; Paul Ryan’s Email to Seth Myers about this ABORTION OF A HEALTH BILL and Congressman saying saying “No one dies without health care!!!

    Trump and his band of beer drinking thugs need to be IMPEACHED!

    Please watch this great monologue by Seth Myers!!! Stupendous!
