Seth Meyers returns to the studio to take a closer look at Trump's reaction to reports he insulted fallen soldiers

I wrote "I'm glad to hear that Seth is heading back to the studio next week. It's a sign that things are returning to the pre-pandemic normal in New York, even though the pandemic is still raging elsewhere in the country" in Seth Meyers takes closer looks at the assault on the USPS. Last night, he broadcast his first episode from the studio, which featured Trump Lashes Out Over Report that He Insulted Fallen Soldiers: A Closer Look.

Seth takes a closer look at Trump ignoring the coronavirus pandemic and pretending he’s anti-war in response to the news that he insulted veterans.
This segment was about a lot more than The Atlantic's report of his calling American servicemen and women "losers" and "suckers" and Trump's response, including the Republican National Convention, but I'll stick to the former. Trump may have believed what he says about the military brass before he ran for President, but I think he's basically repeating what Steve Bannon distilled from Trump's remarks into what passes for a coherent ideological position about military involvement and U.S. foreign policy. Bannon may be long gone but his influence remains.

Speaking of Bannon, the real last closer look Seth produced from home was Ex-Trump Adviser Steve Bannon Arrested and Charged with Fraud: A Closer Look.

Seth takes a closer look at one of Trump’s closest confidantes, former campaign manager and former chief strategist Steve Bannon getting arrested for a wild scam that captures so much of what’s rotten about Trumpism.
Ha, ha, ha! Not only was he arrested in a scam about the border wall, USPS Postal Inspectors arrested him. I find the poetic justice delicious.

By the way, the show Amy Schumer wanted to promote is "Amy Schumer Learns to Cook: Lunch Break and Pasta Night," which earned an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Unstructured Reality Program. Stay tuned, as a post on nominees in that category is next.


  1. "Even his smile looks like it was directed by Stanley Kubrick" -- ha!

    Besides being evil, Trump is a fundamentally ridiculous person, and these latest events have just made that more obvious than ever.

    1. That's a great laugh line and an example of why Late Night with Seth Meyers has a nomination for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series. The writers deserve it.

      And, yes, he's ridiculously evil, which is why I compared him to Dr. Evil last year — Make America Evil Again!
