The wildly busy and scandal-filled week in the Trump White House continued on Wednesday, and Seth Meyers tried to cover all of it in his “A Closer Look” segment on “Late Night.” But as is the case with every late night host on Wednesday, the conversation inevitably shifted to one thing: whether or not the president of the United States of America sent a picture of his penis to porn star Stormy Daniels.
The broader new development in the Trump/Daniels saga is that Daniels is suing Trump for not signing the infamous non-disclosure agreement to hide their affair. In the lawsuit, the details of the NDA were spilled out, including the curious detail that Trump used an assumed name: David Dennison.
“In fairness, ‘David Dennison’ is actually the best fake name a president has ever had,” Meyers said, “because it’s the only fake name a president has ever had.”
But the detail that Meyers and everyone else couldn’t help but focus on was this sentence from the lawsuit: “Prior to entering into this agreement, PP came into possession of certain ‘Confidential Information’ pertaining to DD, as more fully defined below, only some of which is in tangible form, which includes, but is not limited to information, certain still images and/or text messages which were authored by or relate to DD…”
So, “confidential information” in the form of images. Hmm. What could that mean?
“So we are looking at the very real possibility that Donald Trump sent Stormy Daniels a d— pic,” Meyers said as the audience loudly expressed their displeasure with this whole thing. “Can you even imagine? Oh, you can, and that’s why you’re making those awful noises. It would look like a flaming-hot Cheeto sitting on a Brillo pad.”
The audience again groaned loudly for Meyers to stop because they really didn’t want to keep thinking about Donald Trump’s penis. But he persisted.
“No! No! I think we should spend more time on this!” Meyers yelled over the crowd. “Can you just imagine him locked in a bathroom backstage trying to find the right angle with his flip phone camera?”
