Remember when late night entertainment shows were about comedy and entertainment? In the age of Trump, every late night host seems to think they are a prime time host on MSNBC.
On Thursday, when the Mueller report is released, Seth Meyers is going to run an extra long show so he can analyze the findings of the Mueller report. What does this have to do with entertainment?
The Hill reports:
‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’ to run long Thursday for deep dive into Mueller report
“Late Night with Seth Meyers” will run for an additional half hour on Thursday to allow time for a deep dive into special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, which is expected to be made public that day.
NBC announced Monday that the episode will be expanded from 60 minutes to 90 minutes “to give context to the redacted version of the Mueller report becoming public earlier in the day.”
Host Seth Meyers, a staunch critic of President Trump, will also interview South Bend, Ind., mayor and 2020 presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg (D) during the late-night program.
The Thursday edition of “Late Night” is usually reserved for “Saturday Night Live” cast member Leslie Jones and her breakdown of the latest episode of HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” To avoid bumping Jones for a look at the Mueller report, Meyers said the show would simply expand by 30 minutes to allow for both.
“I simply will not stand for the Mueller report bumping Leslie Jones or vice versa, so we decided to make room for both,” Meyers, a former SNL cast member, said.
Meyers is an anti-Trump lunatic who is also pushing the Democrat narrative about Trump’s tax returns.
The Guardian reports:
Seth Meyers: Trump is hiding behind ‘a fake audit that definitely does not exist’
Monday was the deadline for Americans to file their taxes, and to mark the occasion, Seth Meyers noted that Donald Trump still has not released his tax returns. For three years, the president has cited “a fake audit that definitely does not exist” to justify keeping his tax returns under wraps, Meyers said, but that probably won’t hold against a recent House ways and means committee demand that the IRS release them.
Noting that “the president always sounds like a spam email asking you for your social security number”, Meyers suggested that Congress “would have more luck getting his tax returns if they just used his syntax in their request”.
“Mr President (some would say best President), We are WRITING to request your tax returns,” Meyers wrote for Congress. “Are willing to send truck to pick up as they are so big, massive even (!) from your many large and successful businesses (WOW!!!).”
Can you imagine Johnny Carson doing something like this?
Of course not.
