On Thursday’s Late Night, Seth Meyers continued to sound off on the fallout from President Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey. Despite the White House’s claims that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein advised Trump to fire Comey, Trump said otherwise.
“What I did is I was going to fire Comey. My decision,” Trump told Lester Holt in an interview Thursday. “I was going to fire Comey… regardless of recommendation, I was going to fire Comey.”
“So he just admitted everything the White House has been saying since Tuesday is a lie. Trump’s ego is so huge he can’t even let somebody else have the spotlight in his alibi!” Meyers exclaimed. “He’s like a Scooby-Doo villain: ‘That’s right, it was me! I was the ghost in the amusement park!’”
Press Secretary Sean Spicer didn’t even want to talk about the firing. In fact, the Washington Post reported that he hid in bushes to avoid the press, then updated the story to clarify that he was near the bushes.
“When the White House is clarifying the press secretary’s position in relation to bushes, it’s important to remember America is both among, and in, deep shit.”
