Late night comedians have put out the “Welcome” mat for Democrats running against President Donald Trump next year. We’ve already seen Sen. Kamala Harris fawned over by both Stephen Colbert and Trevor Noah on The Late Show and The Daily Show, respectively. Sens. Cory Booker and Kirsten Gillebrand surfed Colbert’s couch, too, as did Rep. Tulsi Gabbard. Sen. Bernie Sanders appears regularly on Colbert’s show.
Alexandria Ocasio Cortez was on Late Night With Seth Meyers Thursday night and the whole interview was one big gushfest with Meyers playing the role of the president of the "AOC" fan club.The freshman Democrat congresswoman who is known for her gaffes and bumbling through interviews, didn’t receive any tough questions from Meyers. Instead she was given the fawning, Hollywood celebrity treatment by the host, while being invited to freely tear into her conservative critics.
Apparently the fawning media coverage of Beto O’Rourke’s first day on the 2020 campaign trail was even too much for liberal Late Night host Seth Meyers. On his Thursday night show, aired early Friday morning, the NBC comedian actually took MSNBC to task for bizarrely obsessing over O’Rourke’s rental minivan while reporting on the former Texas Congressman making a campaign stop in Iowa.
Appearing on NBC’s Late Night With Seth Meyers Thursday night, aired early Friday morning, Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders objected to the friendly liberal talk show host accurately labeling him as “very left.” The 2020 presidential candidate denied that any of his extreme views were left-wing and even attacked the media for supposedly making it a “bigger deal” than it should be.
Appearing as a guest on NBC's Late Night with Seth Meyers, MSNBC contributor and frequent Morning Joe guest Donny Deutsch accused President Donald Trump of racism as he cited the President's history of promoting the birther conspiracy theory against former President Barack Obama. Deutsch notably has his own checkered past on race since he once uttered a racial epithet on national television as he trashed Republican Senator Marco Rubio.
NBC Late Night host Seth Meyers devoted one of his "A Closer Look" sermons to touting "Medicare For All" and mocking President Trump and Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson for opposing socialism. Meyers warned "Scare mongering about socialism might have worked a few years ago, but it's lost its punch now that Republicans have used it over, and over, and over again."
Appearing on NBC’s Late Night With Seth Meyers Thursday, aired early Friday morning, left-wing film maker Michael Moore promised viewers that if he ever ran for president his first agenda item would be “outlawing billionaires.” Asked about socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez pushing for a 70% marginal tax rate for the wealthy, Moore endorsed the radical proposal.
On the Thursday night/early Friday edition of the Late Night with Seth Meyers, NBC comedian Meyers spent more than five minutes essentially giving a commentary in which he mocked and lectured former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz for criticizing Democrats and possibly threatening his former party's chances of defeating President Donald Trump.
Appearing on Thursday’s Late Night with Seth Meyers, aired early Friday morning, former Democratic Senator and newly-named NBC News Political Analyst Claire McCaskill was eager to trash Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as “really depressing” and “very political.” Meyers chimed in to claim that the Republican lawmaker had “no moral compass.”
Five years can be a very long time, especially at the Washington Post, which criticized President Trump for "turning the White House into a White Castle” fast food restaurant while hosting the national champions of the Clemson Tigers football team. But back in 2014, the liberal newspaper viewed the eating habits of then-President Barack Obama much differently by describing the Democratic occupant of the White House and his fondness for cheeseburgers as a "love story.”
It doesn’t get much worse than mocking the dead or wounded veterans, but NBC seems to be making a habit of it lately. After Saturday Night Live mocked a wounded Republican veteran who became a Congressman last November, Late Night host Seth Meyers’ Twitter account sent out a tweet mocking the victims of illegal alien crime, after President Trump’s primetime address on the border.
On Wednesday's Late Night with Seth Meyers, aired early Thursday, NBC host Meyers provided far-left British journalist Mehdi Hasan an unchallenged forum to excoriate former President George H.W. Bush for the deaths of Iraqis and Panamanians, as well as the Willie Horton campaign issue and Bush's reaction to the AIDS epidemic.
