Seth Meyers has not been shy throughout this election cycle about mocking Donald Trump's many gaffes and falsehoods. So, there was no way he was going to let the presumptive GOP nominee get away with posing as his own publicist.
Meyers poked fun at Trump on NBC's "Late Night with Seth Meyers" Monday for having posed as his own publicist in 1991. Audio was recently made public that seems to confirm that Trump pretended to be one "John Miller" in conversations with reporters and bragged about his supposed boss's financial success and romantic life. The audio sure sounds like Trump, and the businessman once even admitted to having used the Miller name in a court deposition.
“It was so clearly Trump,” Meyers said. “The only way ‘John Miller’ could have been more obviously fake is if he was three 10-year-olds, standing on top of each other, in a trench coat. In which case, the fake John Miller would have had the same size hands as the real Donald Trump.”
The comedian went on to mock GOP leaders, including RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, for trying to sweep the embarrassing story under the rug.
"How have GOP officials responded to this latest embarrassment?" Meyers asked. "Well, by trying to dismiss it."
In Meyer's eyes, the "John Miller" story is indicative of Trump's chronic dishonesty. The comedian claimed the tape is tangible proof of one of Trump's many unchecked lies and that it represents a phony persona not unlike the one he says Trump is now selling to voters.
“[Trump is] doing the same thing to voters he did to reporters in the 1980s and 1990s,” Meyers says. “So, get ready, America, because it’s only a matter of time before Trump announces at a campaign event that he’s going out with Beyoncé. Or John Miller will.”
