For the primary time since March 2020, Seth Meyers welcomed a dwell studio viewers to Late Night time on Monday. And he used the chance to mock Donald Trump for apparently boring the hell out of his personal rally crowd over the weekend.
“I’m thrilled to be again in entrance of an viewers,” the host mentioned throughout his newest “A Nearer Look” phase. “And I’m simply hoping that my viewers is a bit more enthusiastic than Trump’s viewers.”
Noting that Trump went to Iowa on Saturday to carry a rally by which he “repeated the identical deranged lies in regards to the election that he’s been repeating for months,” Meyers mentioned that “even his personal crowd wasn’t precisely electrified by listening to the identical outdated incoherent nonsense again and again.”
As footage performed of Trump whining about how he thought he was going to beat Joe Biden earlier than he didn’t, C-SPAN’s cameras caught his crowd staring blankly into area and failing to react to the applause traces.
“Wow, and I used to be anxious about bringing audiences again,” Meyers mentioned in response, including that he loves the “cutaways to sullen Trump followers simply standing there in silence like vacationers watching a kind of gold statue guys in Occasions Sq.—‘So is he gonna, like, do one thing?’”
“And you might inform Trump was ready for a crowd response, too,” he continued. “I imply, have a look at him. It’s like watching an open mic night time on the senior middle.”
