Seth Meyers had plenty of Donald Trump-centric topics to choose from for his latest A Closer Look segment: Michael Flynn, Devin Nunes, Twitter rants, and taxes. Instead of picking just one, the Late Night host went all in.
On Monday’s episode, Meyers began his recurring segment by touching on former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s request for immunity in exchange for testifying in regards to the Trump administration’s ties to Russia.
“As of right now, there is still no conclusive evidence connecting the dots that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to help them win the election,” he said. “But, there are so many dots. We are covered in dots. The Trump presidency is basically a 6-year-old with chicken pox.”
Meyers also played old news clips of both Trump and Flynn, who asserted that anybody who wants immunity is likely guilty. Yet, on Friday, Trump tweeted that Flynn should seek immunity from this “witch hunt.”
“Okay, but I don’t know if I’d take legal advice from Donald Trump. Remember, he’s been involved in more than 3,500 lawsuits,” said Meyers, before showing an image of the crowd at the president’s inauguration. “And just to give you a sense of what 3,500 looks like, here’s a photo of 3,500 people.”
