“Late Night with Seth Meyers” examined the scandal surrounding Michael Flynn during “A Closer Look” on Tuesday night, granting his extremely brief tenure a droll highlight real.
“We’re just over three weeks into the Trump administration and we’ve already got our first major resignation, which means, that in a way, Flynn did accomplish something historic,” Meyes said. “According to the Washington Post, he set a record with his resignation as the White house national security adviser, no one in the 64-year history of the role had a shorter tenure than his.”
Meyers then quipped that he uses disposable razors longer than Flynn held the job.
“Now that Michael Flynn’s historic tenure is over, I think it’s only appropriate that we take a few minutes to look back on his many highlights as America’s national security adviser,” he continued.
The highlight reel kicks off with Flynn saying, “good afternoon everyone,” and then fades to black to read, “The end.”
Earlier this week, Flynn resigned as President Trump’s national security adviser after less than a month in the position.
The move came after Flynn admitted he gave “incomplete information” about a call he had with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. last December regarding sanctions against Russia, The New York Times reported — and that he misled Vice President Mike Pence and other top White House officials about the conversation.
“To be fair to Flynn, he may have broken the law and then lied about it but it’s not like he ever accused any other public official of breaking the law and called for them to be thrown in jail,” Meyers said. “Oh wait, he did?”
Meyers then played a video of Flynn accusing Hillary Clinton of breaking the law and leading chants of “lock her up.”
