Seth Meyers has given plenty of people plenty of reasons to love him (#PajibaTen2018), but it’s very clear that someone up there loves him a lot. And by “up there” I mean the very top of my own head. I love him. I’m trying to say that I love him very much.
But Meyers is undoubtedly having a great year. Professionally he’s been kicking ass all over the place. Personally things seem to be great. He’s recently announced his wife is pregnant with their second child, and was named Real Life Ron Swanson by the Golden Globes.
But what really proves that Meyers is luckier than your average late night host? The first ten to twenty seconds of this clip.
Yeah, hey, remember what happened early Wednesday morning?
Right, that’s when we found out that Matt Lauer is the Darkest Timeline Ron Swanson and Ruinier of Self-Closing Doors Everywhere. And I’m not arguing that Meyers and his team wouldn’t want to address Lauer’s firing. I’m only arguing that having an extra day to come up with the perfect response to learning that one of the most powerful figures at your job is a SexMonster is basically never a bad thing. Unless you squander it like Nancy Pelosi because Jesus Christ, Pelosi.
I feel fairly confident Meyers will do better.
Also this tax bill would be comical in its bare cynicism and cruelty were it not an actual danger. Call your senators, people.
