“Well, here we are again,” says Seth Meyers from his fifth remote location since the start of the pandemic in his latest episode of Late night. After tested positive for COVID-19 last week, Meyers abruptly canceled several shows before returning to work while still in quarantine on Monday night.
The presenter went on to joke that when he tested positive, “I tried getting some of that horse paste mix, but they ran out at my local feed store,” mention ivermectin. So instead, he opted for “horse pudding,” which “has no medicinal value and isn’t a great snack, but you can certainly taste the horse.”
“Now, I’ve had a bad week,” Meyers added later. “But the only silver bra, no time of the week, is me Ted Cruz.” Of course he’s talking about the Texas senator’s decision to “humiliate himself” by is on the show Fox News by Tucker Carlson to “beg forgiveness for the mortal sin of condemning a violent uprising aimed at overthrowing American democracy.”
“It was so pathetic, I really thought I was delirious with COVID,” he continued. “But it turned out to be true and I just fell in love with my horse pudding.”
After playing some of Cruz’s highlights, Fox would “embarrass himself” by returning to his description of the Capitol riots as “terror,” Meyers said, “Well, I know Ted has something to humiliate yourself, but that’s to the next level. like he was trying to remember the name of another man from Wham.”
Meyers then compared the debacle to “one of those cable news segments where a reporter is willing to take on the assignment just to show everyone how bad it is.” Even more embarrassing was when Cruz tweeted the clip of him doing somersaults, “it’s like posting a video of you landing first on the rails while skateboarding with the caption ‘CHECK HOW EPIC HERE’ TO BE’ ‘.
But as he usually does, the host turned the funny thing back into something deadly serious. This is the core of modern GOP politics, he said. “You have to prove to the ground that you have no dignity, that you are willing to humiliate yourself for them, and that there is nothing too pathetic for you to win their favor.”
