Seth Meyers criticized Donald Trump Monday night not for taking a 17-day vacation at his Bedminster, New Jersey, golf club, but for being a “lying hypocrite” in doing so.
“To be clear, I’m not criticizing Trump for taking vacations, I’m criticizing him for being a lying hypocrite,” the “Late Night” host said. “Even lying hypocrites deserve vacations.”
“If I get elected president, I’m gonna be in the White House a lot, we have deals to make,” Trump said in a succession of clips played on Meyers’ show, highlighting several times the president has either criticized former President Obama for taking vacation or saying how few vacations he would take as leader in the White House.
Meyers also decried the White House’s constant state of “chaos,” asking, “what does he think he’s done to deserve this vacation?”
Meyers went on to bash Trump’s “real news” series, which is hosted by former CNN commentator Kaley McEnany and headed up by Eric Trump’s wife, Lara Trump. Meyers called it “like state news crossed with a school announcement: ‘It’s pizza day in the cafeteria, but you won’t hear that from the failing New York Times.'”
