Democrats and liberals are salivating with eager anticipation of Attorney General William Barr’s release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
Barr has already told Congress and the American people in a four-page letter summarizing the 300-plus-page report that no collusion was found between President Trump’s campaign and Russia.
But that won’t stop late night host Seth Meyers from doing an extra long episode once the report is finally released for a peculiar reason.
Late night comics Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers and Conan O’Brien consistently ridicule President Trump and his administration nearly every single night. Actually, scratch that, it is every single night (other than weekends).
All of them perpetuate the notion that they want to read Special Counsel’s Robert Mueller report – a report that the American people have been waiting on for two years to read.
It’s not clear how much will be redacted but that didn’t stop liberals from assuming that Attorney General William Barr wasn’t being completely honest with his four-page letter.
Nevertheless, whatever version is given to the American people, Barr set a hard date for the release of the Mueller report this Thursday.
But the real reason why he’s adding the extra half hour is because on Thursday night they already planned on Saturday Night Live cast member Leslie Jones providing a breakdown on the season 8 premiere of “Game of Thrones.”
They didn’t want to cancel that segment so NBC agreed to give him an extra half hour.
Meyers argued, “I simply will not stand for the Mueller report bumping Leslie Jones or vice versa, so we decided to make room for both.” “Game of Thrones” season 8 premiere shattered ratings records on Sunday with a reported 17.1 million people tuning in and the segment will be called “Game of Jones.” Jones famously put her commentary on Twitter.
The timing is bizarre though. You couldn’t have waited another day? They do broadcasts on Friday as well. Or you couldn’t have bumped Leslie Jones back one day to Wednesday?
Nevertheless, NBC doesn’t seem to mind otherwise they would’ve given Meyers a hard no.
But they don’t seem to believe President Trump or William Barr even after the four-page report read, “the special counsel did not find that the Trump campaign, or anyone associated with it, conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in these efforts.”
And Trump said, “There was no collusion with Russia. There was no obstruction. It was a complete and total exoneration. It’s a shame that the country had to go through this. This was an illegal takedown that failed.”
Coincidentally enough, the articulate rising Democratic star Mayor Pete Buttigieg – who just formally announced his bid for presidency in 2020 – will be the special guest on Thursday.
This upcoming Thursday episode of “Late Night with Seth Meyers” will certainly be reaching in a desperate attempt to try and smear President Trump. Make no mistake about it.
