A big congrats go out to Donald Trump‘s lackey Michael Flynn!
Late night hosts celebrated the former National Security Advisor’s historic stint in the White House — because it was the shortest tenure EVER before Flynn resigned over lying about his sketchy phone calls with Russia.
On Tuesday’s Late Night, Seth Meyers pointed out the irony of Flynn’s scandal — in which he admitted to speaking with Russian diplomats about lifting U.S. sanctions before Trump was sworn in.
The real irony here is that Mr. Flynn was the one who called on Hillary Clinton to drop out of the election over those damn emails — and even chanted “lock her up”! SMH…
Stephen Colbert slammed the White House’s response to the scandal on The Late Show, noting that Trump’s administration was warned by the Justice Department of Flynn’s illegal activity — but, of course, POTUS was too busy with his other presidential duties, like waging war against Nordstrom.
They also called out Trump’s response in deflecting the blame to Washington leaks — when he’s the one conducting meetings right in the middle of his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. Yes, this is real life.
Ch-ch-check out both clips (below) to get your daily breakdown of the burning looney bin that is the White House.
