Nine hours of testimony from Michael Cohen meant an extra long “A Closer Look” from Seth Meyers Wednesday night. The Late Night host spent more than 15 minutes going deep on the hearing, beginning with GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz’s blatant threats against Cohen the night before.
“I didn’t think anyone could out-sleaze Donald Trump, but you did it, my friend,” Meyers told Gaetz. “You are trying to intimidate a witness on Twitter. What’s next, are you going to Instagram a picture of a brick with the caption, ‘About to throw this through your window?’”
Moving on to Cohen’s testimony itself, Meyers played a highlight reel from the former Trump fixer’s opening statement before noting, “Damn, he just listed off a bunch of alleged crimes committed by the president on national TV. You know it’s so ironic, Trump finally went to Vietnam and he’s getting killed back home.”
