Seth Meyers sends off Michael Flynn with highlight reel

Posted on

Late Night host Seth Meyers gave former national security adviser Michael Flynn a sendoff worthy of his time in the role. In short, it was very brief.

“Now that Michael Flynn’s historic tenure is over, I think it’s only appropriate that we take a few minutes to look back on his many highlights as America’s national security adviser,” Meyers said Tuesday before screening perhaps the shortest highlight reel ever put together.

The footage lasted seconds and featured only Flynn’s opening greeting of, “Good afternoon, everyone.”

Flynn resigned from his post on Monday after it was revealed that he misled top White House officials about his conversations with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. before President Trump’s inauguration. Meyers joked that he uses “disposable razors longer” than the 26 days Flynn spent as national security adviser. “He didn’t even last longer than a David Blaine stunt,” he added.

Meyers didn’t let go of the fact that Flynn dragged Hillary Clinton through the mud for her emails during her election campaign. “It’s not like he accused any other public official of breaking the law and called for them to be thrown in jail. Oh, what he did? Fairly recently? And it’s really ironic to watch now?” the host said.
