Seth Meyers takes a closer look at Trump, as he caves on his signature campaign promise to build The Wall, and the inconvenient arrest and indictment of Roger Stone in the Russia investigation.
After agreeing to end the shutdown, Trump sought to save face, with a tweet reads like a threatening ransom note, and federal workers livelihoods hang in the balance again:
“This was in no way a concession. It was taking care of millions of people who were getting badly hurt by the Shutdown, with the understanding that in 21 days, if no deal is done, it’s off to the races!”
Roger Stone is distinguished in that he is one of the few people that FBI officers would cheerfully arrest without pay. An ungrateful Stone complained that the FBI upset his wife and dog during the arrest. Mind, one of Stone’s shenanigans was to threaten the life of a service dog, to silence a potential witness against Trump. Stone faces seven indictments, and his mama dresses him funny. No decent person threatens a man’s dog.
