On Wednesday, Seth Meyers slammed those who claim that Trump finally appeared to be ‘presidential’ during his speech to Congress on Tuesday.
The “Late Night” host urged the audience not to “get fooled again” by this.
“It was a restrained performance, which means the media once again salivated over the possibility of a more presidential Trump.”
Meyers continued to note that Trump “spent the last year and a half lowering the bar when it comes to public speaking” — something that the President has consistently benefitted from in the court of public opinion.
However, what’s most problematic is the fact that just because Trump “managed to sustain a muted tone that for any other politician would be considered unremarkable … was itself seen as a huge victory.”
Meyers mentioned the fact that many in the media insisted that the President is trying to be “normal,” to which Meyers joked, “Yes, like a pair of pants, Trump tried on normal and asked America, ‘does this make my ass look big?’”
“Let’s not get fooled again. We’ve been here before.”
