Late Night Tackles Trump versus Mueller
Jimmy Kimmel congratulates Trump on 1 year of the Mueller 'Witch Hunt,' and Seth Meyers throws up his hands
"Today is the one-year anniversary of Collusiapallooza," Jimmy Kimmel said on Thursday's Kimmel Live, "and our president had a special message on Twitter this morning to celebrate that fact," congratulating America on entering "the second year of the greatest Witch Hunt in American History." "Congrats to you, too, old pal, we've come a long way," Kimmel said. "When he started with 'Congratulations America,' I was hoping he would end with 'I quit,' but no."
"It was a big day — Robert Mueller had a bouquet of long-stem subpoenas delivered to the White House," Kimmel said, but his own present was a reel of Trump saying "witch hunt" in a surprising variety of public settings.
Trump's personal lawyer is also in the news, facing new allegations that he solicited a $1 million bribe from Qatar — unsuccessfully. "Michael Cohen's like the human version of every failed product on Shark Tank — he's the worst!" Kimmel said. "I mean, who does that kind of thing?" (Guillermo.)
On Late Night, Seth Meyers dug into some other things Cohen has been up to (allegedly), Rudy Giuliani's various face-plants, and other news from the fire hose we're all drinking from. "Can I just say, whenever they make a movie about all this, it is gonna suck," he said, "because it will never be as crazy as the real thing." Watch below for the Cops homage. Peter Weber
