Seth Meyers Blasts 'Lying Hypocrite' President Trump for 17-Day Vacation

President Trump has left the White House for a 17-day “working vacation” at a New Jersey golf resort — and that’s all the ammo Seth Meyers needed for his latest Closer Look on Late Night.

“Just in case you needed more proof that he’s not really a billionaire, he takes a New Jersey vacation,” Meyers began on Monday night. “‘New Jersey vacation’ sounds like a slang term for a mafia hit job.”

But after mocking POTUS for his golfing attire (“You’re the president, not a hungover cruise director”) and the creepy way he approached a bridal party celebrating a wedding at the resort (“Is there anything scarier than Trump walking into your wedding and going, ‘Where’s the bride?'”), Meyers took a more serious tone in scolding the president for his two-week trip.

“To be clear, I’m not criticizing Trump for taking vacations. I’m criticizing him for being a lying hypocrite,” he said, after showing a series of campaign-trail clips in which Trump had attacked President Obama for taking constant golf trips.

Meyers continued: “Trump has signed no major legislation since he took office, and his White House has been in constant chaos. So, what does he think he’s done to deserve this vacation?”

    Great question, “So, what does he think he’s done to deserve this vacation”? All that WINNING sure has taken a toll on our Dear Leader, LOL.

    Come on, we all know it is hard work to tweet. 140 character is stressful. It is ironic that everything he had accuse Obama of doing he has done twice as much and in less time. Karma is a strange thing.

    So Obama had too many vacations and Trump blasted him for it but Trump is spending 17 days in New Jersey and almost every weekend or so in Florida but that’s ok? I am not saying it was right if Obama took too many vacations( after all Presidents do deserve time off) but calling him out when you are doing it your self is the epitome of being a hypocrite. Although with Trump its likely he is wasting OUR tax dollars!!!!!! because the White House isn’t pretty and gilded with gold enough for him. I love how its wrong for Obama to waste tax dollars but Trump it is just a ok. Hey Trump why don’t you just admit that you never really wanted in the White House and quit while you are ahead before you get us all annihilated and go back to where you belong. In a boardroom where you can fire anybody you want whenever you want. He gets more embarrassing every day. But I guess not having a ” criminal” in the White House makes us a better country NOT!!!. Please I ask both parties to find worthy and COMPETENT candidates for our next election so we don’t have this circus again

      During the election DT “promised” he wouldn’t take many vacations and that he would spend all his time in the WH working. A lie, from a liar.

    • Mary says:

      That is if there is another election. His inexperience and loud mouth might get us all killed. Scary when you have ZERO confidence in the person who is suppose to be protecting the U.S.

    The evidence Seth presents doesn’t prove Trump is a lying hypocrite, just a hypocrite.

    • DryHeat says:

      Rich, you need to Google the words “Trump lies,” and make sure to have some time to read the results.

    • Tribal Mischief says:

      Try again Rich, Trump said MANY times in the clips presented he wouldn’t take time off.

  5. Syl says:

    Seth sees himself as a jester. The other definition for jester is fool. I’ll go along with that.

    • Curious George says:

      Maybe so, but rather than simply calling the messenger names, why don’t you comment on the content of his message? Can you refute the facts that he presents, regardless of how “foolishly” he presents them?

    • Hannah says:

      Yes, that’s the most logical position to take – make fun of the guy who is using facts and literal video footage to point out the latest way Trump is lying to the country.

  6. Chris says:

    Nevermind the fact that the West Wing is under construction as the HVAC is being replaced.

    • Tomm Huntre says:

      True. The entire HVAC system at the White House is being overhauled. Hasn’t been redone in DECADES. There is work being done, just as Obama did when he ‘vacationed’.

      As for a lack of major legislation being passed – look at Congress as a whole. Can’t get the $@&t together to create legislation.

    • Mary says:

      Um Camp David is available. Do you not once question why he goes every weekend to HIS RESORT to play golf, Probably not.

  7. Morisot says:

    Seth, who has been taking his 4-day work weeks since day-1
