Late night talk show host Seth Meyers leveled a mean insult at the Trump family, primarily directed at Donald Trump Jr. Meyers said that while there is “stiff competition,” Trump Jr. is the “dumbest” member of the family.
Meyers’ comments come after it was revealed President Trump’s eldest son confirmed he had corresponded with WikiLeaks via private message during the 2016 presidential campaign.
A report published Monday afternoon by The Atlantic revealed the private correspondence, which had been given to congressional investigators as part of the ongoing probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign.
On Monday afternoon, Trump Jr. released screenshots of the entire batch of messages in a three-part Twitter post, writing, “Here is the entire chain of messages with @wikileaks (with my whopping 3 responses) which one of the congressional committees has chosen to selectively leak. How ironic!”
Commenting about the release, Meyers quipped, “While [President] Trump is focused on bragging about his endurance, back here at home, his inner circle is dealing with yet more information about potential involvement in Russian election meddling. And you’ll never guess which Trump family member is once again mixed up in all of it.”
“I’ll give you a hint. He has the same name as a famous idiot,” Meyers continued, referring to the president of the United States.
He then revealed who he was specifically targeting, saying, “Of course, it was Don Jr. He’s the dumbest member of a family in which there is stiff competition.”
He then took another jab at the family. “That family still hasn’t finished a game of Trivial Pursuit they started in 1988. ‘What category do you want, Dad?’ ‘Give me New York City buildings between 53rd and 59th,'” Meyers said.
Meyers thought it was a “good day to be Eric,” referring to the president’s second son. “Give it up for Eric. ‘I didn’t collude, father,'” Meyers said, disrespectfully impersonating Eric.
“Although Eric probably couldn’t collude if he tried,” Meyers stated, proceeding to imply that Eric was somehow incompetent.
