Video: Seth Meyers Believes Trump Won’t Support His Lawyer’s Criticism of Jan. 6 as ‘Shameful, Criminal, Violent’ Because it’s Not Catchy Enough for a Baseball Cap

The Supreme Court Considers Trump’s Eligibility for 2024 Presidential Ballots


This week, the Supreme Court encountered a landmark case that would determine Donald Trump‘s inclusion on the states’ 2024 presidential ballots, based on the 14th amendment. However, late-night talk show host Seth Meyers has a different take on Trump’s legal team’s initial arguments.

Meyers’ Amusement at Trump’s Legal Team

Seth Meyers, during his “A Closer Look” segment, amusingly highlighted Trump’s legal team’s attempts to convince the justices about a small loophole within the 14th amendment, which could potentially absolve Trump from any consequences of his involvement in the events of January 6. Meyers couldn’t help but poke fun at Trump’s lawyer, Jonathan Mitchell’s characterization of the events, stating that they were “shameful, criminal, violent” but fell short of being categorized as an insurrection.

Meyers jokingly remarked, “Something tells me Trump isn’t exactly gonna be thrilled with that argument. It doesn’t really fit on a baseball cap: ‘Shameful, criminal, violent, but still eligible!'”

Trump’s Initial Response

Meyers also found humor in Trump’s initial response to the case during a radio interview, where Trump expressed his concerns about being removed from the ballot. Trump argued that it would be “very terrible” to deny him the votes, emphasizing the impact on democracy. Meyers couldn’t resist the opportunity to point out the irony, stating, “That’s what you did! That’s why this case is happening in the first place. It’s like if OJ had gotten up in court and said ‘If you put me in jail, you’ll be murdering my freedom! With ill-fitting gloves no less!'”
