Seth Meyers is back Late Night This Wednesday after taking a week off to recover from the second round of COVID. And while he couldn’t cover everything he missed while he was away, he wasn’t going to pass up the opportunity to make a brutal joke about a photo of Donald Trump. looking a little worse for wear during his recent golf tournament sponsored by Saudi Arabia.
In the middle of an irrelevant piece about Trump double endorsement “ERIC”. in the Missouri GOP Senate primary, Meyers noted that Eric Greitens and eventual winner Eric Schmitt “bragged that they were endorsed by Trump, a man who, again, is not only under multiple active criminal investigations for inciting a coup against American democracy to overthrow, but he’s starting to look less like a former president and more like a Nick Nolte mugshot.”
“I mean, is his head getting smaller or is his hat getting bigger?” asked the host. “It looks like his hat is some kind of organism that feeds off his blood. Look how green it is! It looks like he’ll be starring in Martin McDonagh’s next film as the ghost of an Irish priest opposite Colin Farrell.”
But it wasn’t finished yet. “Look, I know they say all presidents age quickly,” Meyers said, “but Trump seems to be halfway through Raiders of the Lost Ark face-melting. It’s like they opened the Ark, his face began to melt, but then he slammed shut real fast. But then his face stayed just like that.”
It was only after Meyers delivered Trump’s extended comment about how he had to open the Ark of the Covenant to search Hunter Biden’s laptop that he felt ready to return to more substantial news like the results of Tuesday’s primaries.
