Seth Meyers takes a closer look at how Republicans are selling their tax plan by promoting sexual predator Roy Moore, and Trump’s feud with LaVar Ball, father of one of the UCLA basketball players who was detained in China. The feud is a showcase for Trump’s pettiness. Seth notes that Trump’s tweets are not only childish and embarrassing, they’re part of a disturbing pattern. He is clearly a thug and a wanna-be dictator who lashes out at anyone who isn’t sufficiently obedient and grateful and oh-so-very impressed by him!
We should have seen it coming when Trump-bot Omarosa crowed about the doubters and the critics, predicting they would bow down to Trump, adding; “This is the ultimate revenge – to be called the most powerful man in the universe.” Granted, Omarosa borrowed the last line from Darth Vader, but she infused it with the kind of genuine menace that Luke’s evil sire never could.
