On Thursday’s Late Night, Seth Meyers took a “Closer Look” at recent assault charges filed against newly elected Republican Congressman Greg Gianforte after he body-slammed Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs.
“The Republican congressional candidate for a special election in Montana yesterday reportedly body-slammed a journalist after he asked a question about the Republican health care plan. Now, to be fair, that basically is the Republican health care plan,” said Meyers.
“The G.O.P. health care plan is so bad, Republicans would rather body slam reporters than answer a question about it. His response to the question was to give the reporter a pre-existing condition.”
“I guess the GOP really has become the party of Donald Trump,” Meyers said before cueing up a clip of Trump body-slamming Vince McMahon on WWE. “That was a thing. A real thing that happened.”
