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

Late-night television has become a popular platform for political commentary and satire, and one of the most notable hosts in this genre is Seth Meyers. Meyers has gained a reputation for his sharp criticism of the Trump administration and its supporters. In particular, Meyers has taken aim at what he calls “bad Trump-adjacent weirdos,” a group of individuals who have been associated with former President Donald Trump in some way, whether through their work in his administration or their support of his policies [3].

Meyers’ recent delight came when he saw Mike Lindell, the CEO of MyPillow, get word on camera that a defamation suit against him over his claims of election fraud would be moving forward [1]. Lindell is one of the many individuals who Meyers has referred to as a “bad Trump-adjacent weirdo.” Meyers has criticized Lindell for his unfounded claims of election fraud and his continued support of Trump’s baseless allegations [1].

Meyers’ criticism of Trump and his supporters has not been limited to just Lindell. He has also taken aim at other individuals such as Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, and Matt Gaetz [3]. Meyers has criticized Giuliani for his role in promoting false claims of election fraud and his involvement in the January 6th Capitol riot [3]. Similarly, Meyers has criticized Powell for her involvement in promoting false claims of election fraud and her support of the QAnon conspiracy theory [3]. Finally, Meyers has criticized Gaetz for his controversial comments on various issues, including immigration and the COVID-19 pandemic [3].

Despite Meyers’ sharp criticism of these individuals, his satirical sketches have received mixed reactions from viewers [4]. Some find them hilarious, while others find them offensive. Regardless of one’s opinion, it is clear that these sketches have sparked controversy on social media [4].

In conclusion, Meyers’ criticism of “bad Trump-adjacent weirdos” has become a staple of his late-night show. While some may find his commentary offensive, others appreciate his willingness to speak out against those who promote false claims and conspiracy theories. As the political landscape continues to evolve, it will be interesting to see how Meyers’ commentary evolves as well.
