Seth Meyers Rips FOX News For ‘Slobbering Over Trump’

“Most of the country agrees with Meyer’s assessment of the debate as largely useless and of President Trump as anything but the clear winner according to polls.”

President Trump is getting a lot of rave reviews for his performance in Tuesday night’s Presidential debate. The one place that seems to think the President was the clear winner is FOX News.

Seth Meyers not only pushed back on the idea that Trump was the clear winner. On his NBC show Late Night with Seth Meyers, the host questioned if the entire event was not one gigantic loss.

“Debate is not the right word. It was more like a collective brain hemorrhage. It was like watching democracy get a lobotomy,” he said.

FOX News pundit Dan Bongino said that Trump looked like an “apex predator”. In a separate segment, host Sean Hannity said that Trump was a “gladiator warrior.” Meyers bashed both of those takes.

“You watched that debate and saw an ‘apex predator’ and a ‘gladiator warrior fighter’? Because he didn’t look like a predator to me. Most of the time, he stood there with his head cocked like an old dog who just heard a twig snap. He held onto that podium the way my grandma holds onto her walker when they’re reading the Powerball numbers.

“When they weren’t slobbering all over him, Fox pundits and GOP allies were pretending they watched a different debate altogether,” he added.

Most of the country agrees with Meyer’s assessment of the debate as largely useless and of President Trump as anything but the clear winner according to polls.

Meyer’s vitriol was not reserved solely for FOX. He also called out former Senator and current CNN pundit Rick Santorum for his reaction to the President to whiffing when asked to condemn white supremacist organizations.

Meyer introduced a clip of Santorum’s defense of the President by saying the former Senator “for some reason, is still a CNN commentator—doing his level worst.”

He was asking the president to do something that he knows the president doesn’t like to do,” Santorum said of moderator Chris Wallace. “Which is, say something bad about people who support him.”

“I guess by that same token, Trump would accept an endorsement from ISIS if they praised him,” Meyer said, gobsmacked that Santorum would consider that an acceptable defense. “If they were smart, they would start waving Trump flags from the back of their trucks.”

In a decision many already knew was coming following the leaked draft, the Supreme Court, in a 6-3 ruling, overturned Roe v. Wade, which is the landmark enactment that established the constitutional right to abortion.

Since 1973, women have been permitted abortions during the first two trimesters of pregnancy in the United States; however, now the decision on this matter will return to the states, with a good portion expected to outlaw or severely restrict abortion.

There was no shortage of news media reaction when the official ruling came down, some celebrating it while others shared concern for what’s to come a post-Roe v. Wade United States.
