As outgoing president Donald Trump continues to fake he is not going wherever, he is been pushing his false narrative of election fraud with a passionate dedication he by no means displayed for any a part of doing the precise job of president. In case that looks as if an exaggeration, let Late Night time host Seth Meyers remind you that in a rally ostensibly for the Republican candidates in Georgia’s January Senate runoff, Trump literally said that he has “labored tougher within the final three weeks” attempting to overturn his election loss than he “ever [has] in [his] life.”
“If the toughest you’re employed is the three weeks after you had been fired, that would possibly be why you had been fired,” Meyers stated pointedly in Monday night time’s A Nearer Look section.
“However yeah, no, you are working tougher now. You may’t be bothered to show up to meetings or negotiate with Congress or inform individuals to put on masks, however you may name into each state legislative listening to within the nation on speakerphone like a star getting paid to go away voicemails for followers,” noticed Meyers.
“I am certain an exhausted nurse working a double shift on a COVID ward was psyched to listen to the President bragging that he is working double shifts scream-tweeting at Fox Information and sending his maskless gargoyle lawyer to spray COVID spittle at local elected officials whereas driving shotgun with accomplices too loony for the Joker.”
The preliminary aid of President-elect Joe Biden’s win has now given strategy to a well-known dread: Whereas Trump should go away the White Home in January, he isn’t going to go away the rostrum.
“Actually, one of the soul-crushing issues about Trump’s rally on Saturday — other than his lies in regards to the election and claiming the pandemic was virtually over — was simply the belief that he is by no means ever going to cease doing these,” stated Meyers, with a touch of the 2020 late night time host’s thousand-yard stare. “He is gonna preserve touring, like Billy Joel if ‘Piano Man’ was a tune about how Hillary Clinton must be in jail. Twenty years from now, a 94-year-old Trump will probably be clinging to a podium in Tallahassee dancing to ‘YMCA’ and rambling about outdated celebrities nobody remembers.”
