Seth Meyers criticized President Donald Trump on Wednesday's Late Night by highlighting his indecipherable comments about taxes.

"We need a special counsel investigation just to figure out what the hell Trump is talking about," Meyers said. The host was responding to a recent speech where Trump formed a nonsense word salad when discussing tax reform.

"He doesn't really have a tax plan yet at all," Meyers said before knocking Trump's penchant for "incoherent rambling."

Meyers highlighted how Alex Jones, a conspiracy theorist and Trump ally, is trying explain the president's muddled words by claiming he's drugged.
