Seth Meyers Tees Off On Devin Nunes [VIDEO]

The Week recaps:

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) “has basically done everything he can to delay or interfere with his own investigation, raising the question of whether he’s investigating Trump or working for Trump.” Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) answered that earlier Thursday, telling MSNBC that Nunes “works for the president, answers to the president.” Meyers suggested that Yoho and probably Nunes need a remedial civics lesson. “Congress does not work for the president,” he said. “If Congress always did what the president told them to do, [former President Barack Obama] would not have left office looking like this,” illustrating his point with a photo of a very tired, gray Obama.

But amazingly, the Nunes story got even “weirder” on Thursday, when The New York Times traced Nunes’ sources for possible incidental, legal eavesdropping on Trump’s team back to the White House. “That means Nunes went to the White House to brief Trump on information he got from the White House,” Meyers said. “It’s like when you send yourself an email reminder and two minutes later go, ‘Oh, a new email.'” White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer dished up a flavorless word salad when asked about the report. “I’ll bet Sean Spicer fantasizes about having an easier job,” Meyers said, “like Bill Cosby’s publicist.”

    I know this is stupid, but I miss the ability to be shocked by political treason, collusion, lies, bribes, and the like. Now the daily scandals are like, “Oh. Anything else?” 8 years of good government followed by 3 months of this shit…I wasn’t prepared for the numbness, I guess. Don’t misunderstand: I want my country back. I am scandalized. It’s not normal. But have these assholes done anything good for the citizens?

      Many times in the previous months I have reminisced about back when we werent terrorized by the president everyday. When we didnt have to worry about losing rights or having our environment destroyed. Good times. This is NOT normal and we will not let it get normalized.

      I agree. I don’t like the feeling that I now need to keep a list. I stopped saying “what next” weeks ago! And no, they have not done anything good for the citizens, and they are summarily taking rights from us every single day. Things that matter. I’m not sure Trump even knows what the hell Bannon, Pence, Sessions are doing behind the smoke screen.

    • Trump’s killed the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). I think that’s about it, so far. That, of course, required the heavy lift of doing nothing.

      Unsurprisingly, that detail is apparently getting run in red-state ads even though it was a central platform plank of “our communist friend” Bernie Sanders, because it’s the only good thing there is to say about Trump.

    Asked of Trump voters:

    “Do you trust the President?”

    … … … … … … … …”In what vein?”

    Nunes appears to be a clueless bumpkin from Tulare , Ca….

    I’m really enjoying Seth’s take downs of 45 and his regime. It’s just so much win in an otherwise What-the-actual-fuck reality.
