Seth Meyers takes a closer look at Trump’s week, which began badly. Travel Ban Two was gavel-blocked, Trump’s wiretapping distraction was shelved, but his draconian budget plan is cause for Trumpian rejoicing!
The poor may inherit the earth – eventually, but they’ll be very hungry as long as Trump’s in charge. Trump’s alleged budget slashes anti-poverty programs, like Meals on Wheels which serves older Americans and many veterans. You remember veterans, the group Trump courted with such ardor? They believed the man with the tiny hands and the smaller, shriveled little heart. It was only recently, in the wiretapping saga that we learned that whatever Trump says within magic quotations is subject to change, including invisible air quotes.
Surely you remember all of the times when Trump promised we would win so much we’d get sick of winning? Seth suggests: “If you’re sick of winning, you’d better get to the doctor before Trump takes away your healthcare!”
Trump is so divorced from reality that he insists he’s keeping all of his promises. Never a boastful man, he claims he has done “far more than anyone has done in this office, and he’s done it all in fifty days!”
Seth, the father of a small toddler,makes an observation about Trump’s accomplishments and help that is spot on.
“He has ‘helped’ the way a toddler does in the kitchen. He may be trying, but by the time he leaves there’s snot on the fridge and a shoe in the dishwasher.”
