Seth Meyers takes a closer look at June 14, the day that will go down in infamy as the day we found out the ‘President’ is under investigation – or if you’re Donald Trump, ‘it’s my birthday!’
Trump wavered about firing Robert Mueller. Presumably Trump decided that Mueller would be good for ratings. I rarely say this, but Trump was right about that. There is a more bizarre reason according to The New York Times: ” Trump thought the prospect of being fired would focus the veteran prosecutor on delivering what the President desires most: a blanket public exoneration.”
Seth expresses the folly of Trump’s thinking, while a stern photo of Robert Mueller glowers in the background. “You think fear of being fired would frighten this guy? He’s a veteran law enforcement officer, not a trainee at Jamba Juice. Look at him! He looks like something you would carve out of wood to scare millennials off your porch.” At last, Trump’s stupidity, solidly holstered but loaded, fires, hitting him right where it will hurt most, after the shock wears off and reality sets in.
Meanwhile, Republicans continue to work on their top secret health plan, which fully 17% of Americans – who are closely related to lawmakers, approve. .
