Seth Meyers noticed a trend in how all Trump aides testified about him

Seth Meyers noticed the topic on the way Donald Trumpformer aides spoke of him as they testified about his actions during the U.S. Capitol riot.

“They’re all talking about the President of the United States the way exhausted parents talk about a toddler who needs some rest,” he said Thursday on Late Night.

“All of these readings are consistent with what we already knew,” he added. “Trump happily watched the violence unfold on TV and enjoyed it. He cheered them up like he was watching Sunday night football.”

Thursday’s hearing tried to detail what Trump did for over three hours on January 1st. 6, 2021 when a mob of his supporters stormed the US Capitol in an attempt to prevent Congress from confirming the results of the 2020 Electoral College vote count. Joe Biden.

Several aides testified that Trump remained in a private dining room near the Oval Office and watched TV during the riots. Former Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Matthews said he could have walked into the briefing room in less than 60 seconds to make the announcement, but chose not to.
