Seth Meyers briefly accepted the “alternative facts” of “prolific and shameless liar” Kellyanne Conway on Monday. (Watch the video below.)
Lamenting another former Trump associate writing a ‘dishonest and selfish’ book – Conway’s ‘Here’s the Deal’ was released on Tuesday – the ‘Late Night’ host served up a clip of Conway at a 6 March 2020.
“It’s contained,” Conway told a reporter, referring to the COVID-19 virus that would soon spread to every corner of the world. “Don’t you think he’s contained?”
“Congratulations, Kellyanne, you were right,” Meyers tweeted. “It was contained in March 2020 – COVID died out quickly, hydroxychloroquine and horse paste worked and we never heard from it again.”
Meyers continued his factless riff before reminding viewers that, in fact, “none of that happened.”
“I won’t quote the book, because there’s no reason to believe it,” he said.
