The comics take a look at the latest in impeachment proceedings, including outrageous tweets, in Best of Late Night.
Impeachment proceedings appear to be reaching a critical point: Summaries of Tuesday’s testimony from Bill Taylor, the country’s senior diplomat in Ukraine, revealed cover ups, quid pro quo and bullying not just from the president, but throughout the administration. If ever testimony solidified the need for an impeachment vote, Taylor delivered it. Hard to imagine things getting much worse, right?
Enter President Donald Trump’s Twitter account.
His go-to platform during times of stress included a new way of describing the impeachment proceedings. He called the thoroughly constitutional look into his unseemly (and potentially illegal) activity, a “lynching.”
Comedian and writer for “Late Night with Seth Meyers” Amber Ruffin shows why impeachment proceedings are the furthest thing from a lynching and why calling Trump out on his racism is the furthest thing from a distraction. Take a look at today’s Best of Late Night, above, for the deets.
James Corden warned Trump that he was on his way to losing what little black support he has.
And the comics fill you in on the other outrageous tweet attached to the president’s account.
