Seth Meyers can't get over Trump reprimanding Mick Mulvaney for coughing

Seth Meyers spent Monday's Late Night picking apart President Trump's headline-making interview with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos, but he kept coming back to one thing.

During the interview, Trump declared that he's totally fine with Congress somehow obtaining a copy of his financial statements, even though he won't be the one to provide them. As he was saying this, acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney did something that grates on Trump's nerves: he started to cough. A visibly irritated Trump demanded that Mulvaney leave the room immediately, then shook his head at the idea that anyone would think to cough during such a moment. "Just remember, the next time Donald Trump says he has a great health care plan, the plan is if you cough, get the f--k out of here," Meyers said.

Because of Trump's rambling answer about the financial statements, Meyers said it's entirely possible that Mulvaney and Trump set up the cough as a signal to stop answering a question, but Trump forgot. "Also, I love he thought his answer was so good that the coughing ruined it," Meyers said. "Dude, you'd be better off if every answer you gave was interrupted by coughing." Watch the video below.
