    I hope he doesn't get impeached. I want him prosecuted after his term so he can't get pardoned by Pence.

    If Meyers didn't blow someone to get this gig, he's be selling timeshares.

    What a great point on why wasn’t it approved of being built when Trumphole also had the GOP strengthened Senate and Congress. It tells me the GOP isn’t really supportive of a wall.

    Federal employees are constrained by Hatch Act when it comes to partisan political activities. AGFE 's Law Suit against Government for violation of the FLSA is evidence a majority of Federal Employees not supporting this Shutdown. Instead of following the rule of law and bargaining (negotiating) in good faith, the President is disproportionately punishing the little guy with this Partisan Political shutdown. By politicizing government operations, the President is showing how unworthy he is to be the leader of the USA. U. S. Presidents are supposed to be trustworthy and honest, not fickle and dishonest. Tragically, the Republican Party is being complicit in the lies, crimes and inability to govern in a civil manner. One of the primary jobs of the President and Congress is to operate the government in a non-partisan manner. There should never be ANY government closures based on budget matters. Holding employees hostage and forcing them to work without pay violates the FLSA – as noted herein, there are law suits regarding the FLSA matter right now. And, forced labor is a violation of the 13th Amendment. Any Supreme Court worth its salt would immediately issue an injunction stopping the forced labor without pay. Any Congress worth its salt would pass veto-proof government funding bills to get the government functioning. Any President worth their salt would never allow a shutdown for partisan political reasons. Note: while compelling work without pay is not as brutal as the slavery of old, compelling work without pay is one component of slavery. If there was a law requiring payment of salary, even in the event of government closure, there would never be any closures as there would be no reason to shutter the government. And a closure based on partisan politics is not only illegal and wrong, it hurts the poor and lower income folks A LOT more than the rich. For 2020, if you want to get out the vote, get involved by leading the way on getting a Statewide citizen generated referendum onto your State's Ballot. Get one referendum onto the State Ballot that people care about and that impacts them as individuals and the citizens will vote!

    I'm not saying it's true, but if a foreign government or domestic movement were trying to discredit, dismantle, and weaken a country, this is exactly what it would look like.

    YOU RANG?

  11. January 13, 2019 at 8:30 pm

    Reminds me of Rome, how their Legions weren't paid because some clowns were playing politics.

  12. January 13, 2019 at 8:30 pm

    Seth your a #puppet and #clueless smh

  13. January 13, 2019 at 8:30 pm

    Stephen Miller is Creepier than Andrew Cunanan!

    trump may not work much, but he's got you beat.

  15. January 13, 2019 at 8:30 pm

    No-one but Seth Meyers sounds like an idiot in this video…

  16. January 13, 2019 at 8:30 pm

    This proves yet again that trump is not a politician and will never learn how to be one. He doesn’t have any idea how to run a country, be diplomatic, not cry if he doesn’t get something he wanted and try to be patient. This proves that trump has always been and will always be an narcissistic 6 year old who will never grow up!!!!!

    The wall for gun control

  18. January 13, 2019 at 8:30 pm

  19. January 13, 2019 at 8:30 pm

    He’s not wired he’s a moron

  20. January 13, 2019 at 8:30 pm

    That psycho has so many lies that the world is becoming to accept it as norm.

  21. January 13, 2019 at 8:30 pm

    My question is: Since TRUMP is the self-proclaimed authority on border security technologies and Drones, why doesn't he tell us that you can use a 200$ Drone to fly a couple pounds of cocaine over a 20billion dollar wall or is he building the wall also 2000 miles high?

  22. January 13, 2019 at 8:30 pm

    Seth Myers = a clinton paid.

  23. January 13, 2019 at 8:30 pm
