Seth Meyers believes that Donald Trump hasn’t been able to move on from the “disastrous” first presidential debate and it’s hurting his campaign.
“Not only was his debate performance last week disastrous, he’s spent an entire week talking about it,” Meyers said on Tuesday’s “Late Night.” “He’s like a kid who wets the bed at a sleepover, and a week later he’s still telling you, ‘I told you I spilled my juice box.'”
In a bid to change the story, Trump’s campaign told reporters that he would be making a nine-sentence statement disputing Hillary Clinton’s comments about many millennials who supported her Democratic opponent, Bernie Sanders. But it reportedly took Trump 25 minutes to make the statement, because he couldn’t stick to it.
“Why did it take 25 minutes to read nine sentences?” the host asked. “Because Trump had to do some classic stand-up comedy, like when he mocked Hillary Clinton’s pneumonia and a brief fainting spell she suffered as a result… He’s doing an impression of a sick person.”
To top it off, Trump implied that Hillary Clinton is cheating on her husband, Bill Clinton, who has his own history of infidelity. “I don’t even think she’s loyal to Bill,” Trump told his rally crowd.
“That’s a shocked crowd reacting to a baseless accusation of infidelity,” Meyers said. “Trump rallies have just become episodes of ‘The Maury Povich Show.'”
