Late Night with Seth Meyers used “A Closer Look” to explain reports that President Donald Trump pressured Ukraine to interfere in the 2020 election.
By the sound of it, we have our newest presidential scandal. This time it is communication with Ukraine, not Russia, that has people calling for President Donald Trump’s impeachment. If you’re looking for a summary of the situation, Late Night with Seth Meyers‘s “A Closer Look” has you covered.
Late Night fans no doubt remember the countless editions of “A Closer Look” that focused on Russian election interference and Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Seth Meyers became a go-to resource for viewers looking to supplement the news with some laughs.
Not surprisingly, Meyers and his Emmy-nominated team of writers will do the same with the controversy surrounding President Trump, Ukraine, and a whistleblower.
Late night television may not be the best resource for getting your news, but if you’re going to do it then you might as well go with Late Night with Seth Meyers. Meyers delivers a good overview of the situation while weaving in his signature sense of humor.
Meyers reminds his audience that Trump accepting foreign aid in the 2020 election isn’t outside the realm of possibilities despite the scandal that erupted over ties between Russia and Trump’s campaign. One of Late Night‘s favorite thing to do is point out the shocking, head-scratching comments that Trump so willingly says on camera.
Another favorite topic for Seth Meyers is anything Rudy Giuliani says on television. The former New York City mayor has been mocked relentlessly by late night hosts since becoming President Trump’s personal lawyer. Meyers adds a few more insults while explaining Giuliani’s role in the Ukraine scandal.
Meyers moves on to cover the whistleblower news that broke last week, dismissing Trump’s excuse that he would ever say anything inappropriate to a foreign leader while other people were listening. And even if President Trump didn’t say anything incriminating, Meyers is certain that Giuliani did just that by admitting he asked the Ukrainian government to investigate Joe Biden’s son.
Seth Meyers has covered enough of these stories to know President Trump’s pattern of denial, semi-confession, and dismissing any possible consequences. And once again, Meyers is calling for impeachment proceedings to begin. The story seems to be only just getting started so stay tuned for more closer looks from Late Night.
