Seth Meyers Explains How Donald Trump Is Just Like a Terrible High School Student


Donald Trump's 100-day report card arrives this weekend, and the grades are dismal. "As the 100-day milestone nears," "Late Night" host Seth Meyers told viewers Monday night, "Trump has failed to deliver on almost every one of his major legislative promises."

But a little national failure is not going to bring Trump down. As Meyers reminds us, "like any terrible student, he's trying to turn an F into an A." 

Instead, he's continued to rehash the 2016 election, claiming that "he'd still beat Hillary in the popular vote," despite the fact that "you can't still do something you've never done before."

Meyers goes on to compare Trump's recent discovery that the Republican Party is not in agreement on every issue and in fact has multiple, occasionally warring factions to "an annoying eight-year-old kid who just got home from school: 'Did you know that fish can breathe underwater using their gills?' Yeah, Timmy, I did know that... now go suck on your juice box." 

Now if only Trump's equivalent of a juice box wasn't shutting down the government or starting a war with North Korea.
