“Late Night” host Seth Meyers ran through a litany of Donald Trump’s laziest hits, slamming White House chief of staff John Kelly for calling undocumented immigrants “lazy.”

Meyers began his “A Closer Look” monologue Wednesday by bashing Trump about the military parade officials reportedly plan to throw per the president’s request. “Trump wants a military parade,” Meyers explained. “So you’re just going full dictator now? Just d*ck wasn’t enough?”

“If it was anything like Trump’s last parade, there’ll be plenty of room,” Meyers added, showing a picture of the empty bleachers during the president’s inauguration.


Noting Trump dodged the military draft, Meyers argued, “If you want to hold a parade for something you, yourself, actively avoided, why not throw an IRS parade or a parade of personal trainers?”

The host later turned to Kelly’s claim that undocumented immigrants who didn’t sign up for the Dream Act were “lazy.”

“They were too lazy?” Meyers asled. “You work for a guy who watches eight hours of TV a day, tweets until noon, eats cheeseburgers in bed, can’t read a piece of paper unless it has pictures and his name on it, won’t walk down a flight of stairs, and his preferred mode of transportation is a golf cart.”

“Trump is so lazy, I wouldn’t be surprised if he had one of the grabbers so he can reach his Diet Coke without getting off the couch,” Meyers said.
