There’s probably no way that Donald Trump will start listening to the US intelligence community any time soon, unless they are American intelligence officials posing as Russian agents just so Trump will pay attention to his daily briefings. Seth Meyers took advantage of all the recent news around Trump’s lack of impulse control and poor decision making to rib the PEOTUS a bit during the latest “A Closer Look.” In the segment, Seth says that instead of making decisions about the country or holding press conferences, Trump “has continued his habit of tweeting obsessively about some of the least important things you could possibly imagine” such as Meryl Streep’s Golden Globes speech about him on Sunday night.
The one good thing — and this is still a stretch — about Trump’s random and unnecessary late night tweets are that Seth gets to make jokes about them every night, and that sometimes Kellyanne Conway will find out about her boss’ missives while she is live on air during a FOX News segment. That’s not a position you ever want to find yourself in at a high-paying government job. “My boss is tweeting something? Oh goodness no.”
