Seth Meyers calls Trump the 'Showgirls of presidents' after his NFL protest rants
President Trump's profane response to NFL players who are using their platform to peacefully protest police brutality is enough for Seth Meyers to dub Trump the "first NC-17 president."
On Friday, Trump said players who kneel during the national anthem should be fired, shouting, "get that son of a bitch off the field." On Monday's Late Night, Meyers asked viewers to "just take a step back and consider how embarrassing it is that news anchors now have to introduce comments from the president by warning little children to leave the room." While Trump's the first NC-17 president, "it's not even a good NC-17 movie," Meyers said. "Trump is basically the Showgirls of presidents. Trump's presidential library is going to be in the back of a video store where they keep all the pornos. You're going to have to enter through a beaded curtain."
Trump's "unhinged rant" just went downhill from there, Meyers continued, as Trump claimed the NFL is seeing its ratings drop because people would rather watch him. "That's right, in Donald Trump's mind, people are turning off NFL games, gathering their friends, and ordering pizza to watch an out-of-shape blowhard shuffle around like he got separated from a tour group."
