Seth Meyers focused his "A Closer Look" segment from Late Night on Trump's last pre-election promises to his supporters, including suggesting that he might fire Dr. Anthony Fauci.
"You're gonna fire one of the country's most trusted scientists in the middle of a pandemic?" Meyers said. "Who are you going to replace him with? Zombie Pavarotti?" The host had previously noted how Trump told a story at one of his rallies about how late opera singer Luciano Pavarotti liked him.
"This is where Trump's at right now, his record is so horrendous he has nothing else to talk about other than rambling incoherently about long dead celebrities who were nice to him 20 years ago," Meyers said. "In fact, with one day left in the pre-election news cycle, Trump decided that regaling his crowds with bizarre backstage encounters with opera singers wasn't enough."
Which brings us back to Fauci. "I can't believe this is Trump's closing message for the last day of the campaign," Meyers continued. "Trump says stuff like this because he doesn't think he's accountable to public opinion. Remember he lost the popular vote, escaped impeachment, and has never had a majority approval rating once in his presidency. He thinks our anti-democratic institutions like the Senate and the Electoral College and the Supreme Court will protect him and he's been broadcasting as much, announcing that he'll use the courts to potentially steal the election by prematurely declaring victory and shutting down the count."
To go back to something Kimmel said, tequila for Election Night is looking like a mighty fine companion.
