Seth Meyers Rubs Trump's Nose in His Excremental Approval Rating

After five months in office, Donald Trump's approval rating has plummeted to historic lows, as frustration with a White House in perpetual chaos appears to be taking its toll.

"According to a new CBS poll, President Trump's approval rating is just 36 percent," announced "Late Night" host Seth Meyers on Monday.

"Said Trump, out of how many?" joked Meyers. "Cause if it's 38 or 39, that's very good."

Citing a Rasmussen poll, Trump insisted Saturday that his numbers are actually higher than President Obama's at this juncture in his presidency—a claim that was easily debunked

CBS also revealed that support for Trump among Republicans has dropped from 83 percent to 72 percent in less than two months, a direct result of his mishandling of the Russia investigation.

"Folks give lower ratings to him on handling that issue than they do anything else," CBS News elections and survey director Anthony Salvanto explained in a "CBS This Morning" interview Tuesday.

Adding insult to injury, "it was alleged yesterday that former national security advisor Michael Flynn failed to report a trip he took to Saudi Arabia to pursue a joint U.S.-Russian business venture," added Meyers.

"Damn, how many trips did Michael Flynn take?" wondered the "Late Night" host. "He's like the Anthony Bourdain of treason."
