Meyers Mocks Fox For ‘Inaccurately’ Covering ‘Cherry-Picked’ Durham Filing

Breaking News

NBC Late Night host Seth Meyers returned from his Olympics-induced hiatus Monday night to talk about Special Counsel John Durham’s latest filing that showed Hillary Clinton campaign associates sought to access web data in order to spin a Trump-Russia collusion narrative. However, for Meyers, that was not the real story. The real story has been the reaction of Fox News.

After playing a montage of Fox personalities reacting to the filing, Meyers declared: “Disentangling the web of lies here is nearly impossible. Basically, Fox News inaccurately described a claim that had been cherry-picked from a court filing by a special counsel assigned by former Attorney General Bill Barr to investigate the origins of the Russia investigation. And then they lied about that filing to the point where the special counsel himself, John Durham, distanced himself from the Fox News freak out.”

Meyers then suggested the collusion narrative was legitimate and got hyperliteral as if Clinton herself has been accused of infiltrating Trump’s data:

But suffice it to say, Hillary Clinton did not hack into Trump’s campaign or spy on Trump’s White House, and she certainly didn’t plant evidence. For one thing, why would you have to plant evidence on a guy who screams evidence into TV cameras all the time that would be like the cops planting a bag of cocaine at a meth lab. They’re making it sound like Hillary Clinton was in a van outside Trump Tower hacking into the mainframe, Ocean’s Eleven style. ”I’m into the Trump mainframe! The password was just ‘password’ spelled wrong.” Also, you think Hillary Clinton was capable of hacking Donald Trump and digitally spying on him? Do I need to remind you how bad she was with technology? 

After playing a cringe-inducing clip of Clinton talking about Pokemon GO, Meyers again showed his lack of understanding of the controversy, “Yeah, that person hacked Trump’s campaign and planted evidence. Sounds like my mom drunkenly asking me how to use FaceTime on my tablet. ‘So, it’s called an iPad does that mean you need an iPen - do not take away my gin and tonic!'”

Adding: “I mean, my god, it’s been years, and they’re still obsessed with Hillary. I’m gonna tell you what my therapist told me about the Rudy Giuliani Masked Singer news ‘Let it go.'”

Even if Durham has distanced himself from some of the reactions, that still does not absolve Clinton World and the media of spinning a false narrative that resulted in the Mueller probe.

NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers
2/22/2022
12:50 AM ET

SETH MEYERS: Yeah, we heard that right. You just said it wrong because none of it is true. Disentangling the web of lies here is nearly impossible. Basically, Fox News inaccurately described a claim that had been cherry-picked from a court filing by a special counsel assigned by former Attorney General Bill Barr to investigate the origins of the Russia investigation. And then they lied about that filing to the point where the special counsel himself, John Durham, distanced himself from the Fox News freak out. If you ask them to explain what was actually in the filing, they’d probably say —

MIKE LINDELL: I don’t know. Regulations, red tape. 

MEYERS: But suffice it to say, Hillary Clinton did not hack into Trump’s campaign or spy on Trump’s White House, and she certainly didn’t plant evidence. For one thing, why would you have to plant evidence on a guy who screams evidence into TV cameras all the time that would be like the cops planting a bag of cocaine at a meth lab. They’re making it sound like Hillary Clinton was in a van outside Trump Tower hacking into the mainframe, Ocean’s Eleven style. ”I’m into the Trump mainframe! The password was just ‘password’ spelled wrong.” Also, you think Hillary Clinton was capable of hacking Donald Trump and digitally spying on him? Do I need to remind you how bad she was with technology? 

HILLARY CLINTON: I don’t know who created Pokémon GO, but I’m trying to figure out how we get them to have Pokémon Go To The Polls. 

MEYERS: Yeah, that person hacked Trump’s campaign and planted evidence. Sounds like my mom drunkenly asking me how to use FaceTime on my tablet. ”So, it’s called an iPad does that mean you need an iPen - do not take away my gin and tonic!” I mean, my god, it’s been years, and they’re still obsessed with Hillary. I’m gonna tell you what my therapist told me about the Rudy Giuliani Masked Singer news ”Let it go.”
