Seth Meyers takes a closer look at the real deplorables – Donald Trump, Putin and Roy Moore. Moore, whose habit of dating underage girls, and recent accusations of assaulting them, complicates matters for Republicans who don’t know whether to take a moral stance, or side with evangelicals who support him. Moore’s own defense, and that of his defenders from Alabama leads me to wonder if an entire state can be affected by poor water quality.
The high-point of Trump’s tour of Asia was meeting with his idol Vladimir Putin – and with a lesser idol Duterte, where he picked up tips on effectively stifling the press permanently. Reporters were keen to know whether Putin admitted to interfering in our election…Really? In any case, Trump believes him and Putin believes that Trump believes him, and that should take care of Mueller’s pesky investigation!
