Seth Meyers reacts to ‘corrupt’ Trump’s Comey memo bombshell

Scandal after scandal has come out of Washington in the last week, and it doesn’t seem like it will let up anytime soon. On Wednesday’s Late Night, Seth Meyers took a “Closer Look” at Tuesday’s news that Trump asked former FBI Director James Comey not to investigate former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

“Well, a senior official in the Trump administration was really blunt, telling The Daily Beast—and this is a real quote—‘I don’t see how Trump isn’t completely f**ked,’” explained Meyers. “I like how that’s worded in a way that makes it clear there’s no alternative.”

According to a memo Comey took when talking to Trump, the president asked him to end his investigation of Flynn, saying, “He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”

“’I hope you can let this go.’ Not only is Trump corrupt, he’s not even smooth about it,” Meyers remarked. “He sounds like a guy who tries to bribe the maître d’ at a restaurant but slips him a handful of loose change.”

This story will continue to develop, but as Meyers put it, “Trump is harming his presidency so much I wouldn’t be surprised if he was throwing it because he has money on his own impeachment.”
