Appearing on NBC’s Late Night With Seth Meyers Tuesday, aired early Wednesday morning, left-wing comedian Kathy Griffin portrayed herself as a victim of political persecution by claiming that the Trump administration put her through the “Colin Kaepernick wood chipper” after she was widely condemned for posing in pictures depicting a mock beheading of the President.
On the NBC show Late Night with Seth Meyers, the Catholic Church was roasted as a den of pedophiles. NBC probably shouldn't be mocking sexual abuse so casually....considering Matt Lauer's long reign of preying on young-adult female staffers. Seth Meyers reported: "The Vatican recently refused to host an international women's day conference because one of the speakers was a lesbian." Wrong. Writer Jenny Hagel added: "And because they're too busy hosting a 2,000-year-long pedophile convention."
CNN Tonight host Don Lemon trapped himself in a lie this week, falsely claiming that the Fox News Channel (or “Trump TV” in his mind) had never covered the White House resignation of Hope Hicks. He offered “apologies for that” on Thursday but it was anything but that as he channeled Dan Rather and Michael Wolff in arguing that the spirit of his lie was true.

Seth Meyers did a big round of promotional interviews about his gig hosting the Golden Globes awards on Sunday nights and how he’ll address “the elephant in the room” of sexual harassment in the entertainment industry. One easy sign of how soft every single interviewer is: No one asked Meyers about NBC’s Matt Lauer. Everywhere he went, Meyers claimed he'd strike a balance of sympathy for the victims and mockery of the perpetrators. But Meyers pal Amy Poehler told Dave Itzkoff at The New York Times that Meyers is a sensitive male who knows “what his privilege permits him and what it denies him.”
Seth Meyers, the liberal host of NBC’s Late Night program, was announced as the host of the 75th Golden Globe Awards program in a statement released on Thanksgiving Day by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. According to HFPA President Meher Tatna, the Association “is excited” about having Meyers in the role that has previously been filled by Jimmy Fallon, host of NBC’s Tonight Show, British comedian Ricky Gervais, actress/comedian Tina Fey and her fellow Saturday Night Live star Amy Poehler.

It was the year of the F-bomb -- every single one of them aimed at the president of the United States. It’s been 12 months since the 2016 election and already at least 63 of the angriest Hollywood elites -- A-listers, has-beens, teen stars, rappers, and wannabes alike -- have delivered a collective middle finger to the president.
Rosie O’Donnell’s best route to getting publicity is by bashing Trump. But late night talk shows can’t wait to hear her rant and rave.
