“Late Night” host Seth Meyers slammed U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday after his budget blueprint was released and revealed some shocking things to come.
According to a recent Fox News poll, Americans are overwhelmingly taking issue with the President over his healthcare stance. However, this is not the only group that has taken issue with him — attacks have even come from many members of Trump’s own party.
During the “Late Night” segment, Meyers played a clip from May of 2016 where Trump said that Americans would win to such an extent that they would “get sick and tired of winning.”
Meyers then asked,
“Are you sick of winning yet? Because if you are you better get to the doctor before Trump takes away your health care.”
In the clip, Trump then pivoted to seeking applause by slamming Hillary Clinton, to which Meyers stated, “Wow, you guys are still doing ‘lock her up… But hey, I get it, when you go see Billy Joel you want to hear ‘Piano Man.’”
The “Late Night” host went on to note that Trump told the crowd, “some of you were bad students” but that even they could understand what he was about to explain. Meyers then quipped, “I love how Trump is willing to go in front of his voters and tell them, ‘Some of you are idiots.'”
Later in the segment, Meyers continued to mock Trump for trying to pivot to taxes, claiming that he wished they could have started with taxes first, but they were too taxed with trying to repeal and replace Obamacare.
Meyers also explained that Trump’s bill is essentially failing because it completely decimates the very rural white voters who voted for him. When asked about it, the Donald even admitted to it. “For any other president it would be a smoking gun, but for Trump it’s a guy smoking. ‘Yeah I know. I know. F*ck ’em.’”
Trump unveiled a budget blueprint that continues Trump’s pattern of supporting policy that slams his base. He explained that he saw cuts to the EPA in the future and also the National Endowment for the Arts. However, the line was drawn at cuts to the Meals on Wheels program.
Meyers was clearly outraged.
“Meals on Wheels?!? How dead inside do you have to be to not want old people to get food? Your heart is so small it makes your tiny hands look like catcher’s mitts. Old people voted for you! Your key demographics were old people and older people. They believed you when you said you cared about them. There’s nothing more low-life than lying to the elderly. You should know that. You’re 70.”
