Seth Meyers Has A Field Day With Lindsey Graham’s Trump-Ukraine Claim

The "Late Night" comedian roasted the South Carolina Republican with a pitch-perfect impression.

Seth Meyers on Monday mocked Republicans who for years defended Donald Trump’s praise of autocrats and now claim Russia’s invasion of Ukraine “never would have happened” on the former president’s watch.

The “Late Night” comedian was especially outraged at Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-S.C.) declaration that Russia didn’t dare invade when Trump was in office because he’d have “kicked their ass.”

“He would have kicked their ass,” Meyers mimicked Graham. “But he would have done it with a shoe that said ‘China’ on the bottom, so when they looked at their pants later they’d say, ‘Now I know who kicked my ass’ and a war would start between those two countries and we’d be walking on easy street.”

Trump over the weekend reportedly floated the idea of U.S. planes painted with Chinese flags bombing “the shit out of Russia,” causing Russia and China to go to war against each other.
