Bad News for ‘Trump-Adjacent Weirdos’ Delights Seth Meyers

Late-night television host Seth Meyers has never been shy about his political views, and his recent monologues have been no exception. In fact, Meyers has been particularly vocal about his delight in the recent legal troubles of what he calls “Trump-adjacent weirdos.” [1]

One such weirdo is MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, who recently received word on camera that a defamation suit against him over his claims of election fraud would proceed. Meyers couldn’t help but revel in Lindell’s misfortune, quipping that “it’s always nice to see someone get what’s coming to them.” [1]

But Lindell isn’t the only Trump supporter to face legal consequences for their actions. Meyers also highlighted the recent indictment of Tom Barrack, a close friend and ally of the former president, on charges of illegal lobbying on behalf of the United Arab Emirates. [2]

Meyers sees these legal troubles as a sign that justice is finally catching up to those who enabled and supported Trump’s dangerous rhetoric and actions. He even joked that Trump’s aides were so certain they’d go to prison for their involvement in the Capitol riot that they had already picked out their cellmates. [2]

Of course, not everyone finds Meyers’ delight in others’ misfortunes to be amusing. Some critics have accused him of being mean-spirited or even hypocritical, given his own history of controversial statements and jokes. But Meyers remains unapologetic, arguing that those who enabled Trump’s lies and attacks on democracy deserve to face consequences for their actions. [3]

Ultimately, Meyers’ gleeful reactions to the legal troubles of Trump-adjacent weirdos may not be everyone’s cup of tea. But they do reflect a growing sense among many Americans that those who supported and enabled Trump’s dangerous rhetoric and actions must be held accountable for their role in undermining democracy.
