Seth Meyers doesn't buy Trump's excuse for silence on mosque shooting
Late Night With
Seth Meyers is skeptical of the Trump administration’s explanation for why the president hasn’t tweeted or issued a statement about the recent Quebec mosque shooting that claimed six lives.
White House adviser Kellyanne Conway said Tuesday that Trump “doesn’t tweet about everything,” but on Tuesday’s Late Night episode, Meyers argued the opposite. “It sure feels like he does!” Meyers said during the latest edition of A Closer Look, chiding the president for his tweet this week against Nordstrom. (The department store chain had pulled Ivanka Trump’s merchandise from its shelves due to poor sales; Trump claimed that was unfair via his Twitter account.)
To make his point, Meyers presented a list of the many topics Trump has taken the time to tweet about, including Meryl Streep, The Celebrity Apprentice ratings, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson’s relationship, fast food, Trump’s “many enemies,” Gary Busey’s mechanical dog, and more.
On the bright side, the long list gave Meyers time to pour himself a stiff drink.
