Seth Meyers spent 12-and-a-half minutes of his final Late Evening of the week on Thursday breaking down simply how a lot of a “shit-covered, ass-over-tea kettle clusterfuck” the Democrats’ attempt to pass President Joe Biden’s social safety net expansion has turn into. However he began by drawing consideration to the weirdest thing that occurred in Washington right this moment.
“To offer you an thought of how issues are getting into Congress proper now, right here’s a photograph Utah Senator Mitt Romney posted right this moment of himself dressed up as Ted Lasso serving biscuits to Democratic Senator Kyrsten Sinema,” the host started. He uncared for to even point out the disturbing “Biscuits with the boss” caption.
“Man, you understand you’re unpopular when you may single-handedly smash one in all America’s favourite TV reveals,” Meyers added. “That is like when Rudy Giuliani ran out of the White Home rest room along with his pants round his ankles George Costanza-style.”
All of this “simply proves as soon as once more that we desperately want Roy Kent in Congress,” he mentioned of the Apple TV+ present’s most surly character, “as a result of that character makes me wish to ‘fucking puke.’”
Meyers spent the remainder of his “A Nearer Look” section going after Sinema and her partner-in-obstruction Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) for deciding to “maintain the invoice hostage and switch it right into a public melodrama to feed their very own egos and to guard their company patrons.”
“That is all only a self-aggrandizing schtick from two senators who wish to be seen as straight-shooting, middle-of-the-road dealmakers,” he added. “However who’re, in actuality, simply defending the pursuits of their company patrons and themselves.”
