Seth Meyers explains to House Republicans that Congress doesn't work for the president
The Week --
President Trump's approval rating just his a record-low of 35 percent, per Gallup, Seth Meyers said on Thursday's Late Night. "And this is supposed to be the honeymoon period! Trump should be good at those — he's had three of them." This is worse than Nixon during Watergate and George W. Bush after Hurricane Katrina, Meyers said, and he had some ideas why even some Trump supporters are souring on the president — starting with the Russia investigation.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) "has basically done everything he can to delay or interfere with his own investigation, raising the question of whether he's investigating Trump or working for Trump." Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) answered that earlier Thursday, telling MSNBC that Nunes "works for the president, answers to the president." Meyers suggested that Yoho and probably Nunes need a remedial civics lesson. "Congress does not work for the president," he said. "If Congress always did what the president told them to do, [former President Barack Obama] would not have left office looking like this," illustrating his point with a photo of a very tired, gray Obama.
