Seth Meyers, who used to be a Saturday Night Live comedian before becoming a political commentator, examined President Donald Trump’s desire to reopen the country tonight in his “A Closer Look” segment.
Meyers noted during the monologue that the President wants to reopen “despite the advice of experts and lack of power to do so.”
He also cited Trump’s prior praises of China General Secretary Xi Jinping, noting, “Trump wants us to forget all that now. He has the memory of a goldfish who smokes weed.”
That was one of the jokes. Watch the rest of it above.
