Seth Meyers Hilariously Has Sarah Huckabee Sanders Explain Everything Wrong with Trump

NBC Late Night host Seth Meyers staged a comedic press briefing by questioning White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and playing back her real-life responses to journalists' questions.


Amid a tough news week, the satirical comic relief was a welcome break. But Meyers still managed to slip in some truths.

“Secretary Sanders, how would you describe the Trump presidency in three words?” Meyers asked.

“Russia’s unfortunate decision,” the press secretary answered.

“What do you think President Trump still needs to learn in order to get better at his job?” Meyers inquired.

“Eighth-grade civics,” Sanders responded.
