Seth Meyers Takes “A Closer Look” at Robert Mueller’s Investigation and Trump’s Tax Plan

Here’s a clip from last night’s Late Night, where Seth Meyers takes “A Closer Look” at the latest updates in the Russia investigation that now involves Trump aides like Jared Kushner and the news that Robert Mueller is reportedly “going for the kill.” On Mueller: “Look at this guy. He looks like the police chief from every 1950s noir film. He looks like he should be holding a bullhorn and shouting ‘You’re surrounded, McMurphy!’ This guy always looks like you just asked if you could take his daughter to a Slayer concert. He doesn’t even get haircuts, he just looks at his hair in the mirror and growls ‘Get shorter!’” Meyers also looks at Trump’s rambling, incoherent explanations of his tax plan, which Alex Jones has already concocted a conspiracy theory to explain. “That’s how bad things are right now — the president’s allies are defending him by saying ‘He’s not incompetent, he’s being secretly drugged,’” Meyers says.
