Seth Meyers Dissects Perhaps the Single 'Weirdest Thing' Trump Did on His First Trip Abroad as President
Hours after Montana congressional candidate Greg Gianforte body-slammed a reporter, Donald Trump shoved the prime minister of Montenegro during a NATO event in Brussels. For "Late Night" host Seth Meyers, it was the single "weirdest thing" Trump did on his first foreign trip, or at least so far.
"During a meeting with other NATO leaders in Brussels today... Trump seemed to push aside another head of state [Dusko Markovic, the prime minister of Montenegro] to get to the front of the group," Meyers explained on Thursday's "Closer Look."
The incident with NATO leaders soon caused an international ruckus. But while Markovic claimed he was not offended, Meyers noted just why the move speaks volumes.
"Trump's idea of 'presidential' is 'guy trying to get to the conference room before the free pizza is gone,'" he quipped.
"You're a world leader," the "Late Night" host added. "A world leader at a meeting of dignitaries, and you act like they just called your number at KFC. Me! That's mine! The 12-piece!"
Is it any wonder Gianforte won the election?
