Seth Meyers on Monday slammed the Republicans who now have the gall to call for “healing and unity” following the U.S. Capitol riot.
The “Late Night” host laid the blame of last week’s insurrection firmly on the shoulders of President Donald Trump and his GOP enablers, who for weeks stoked divisions and aner with violent rhetoric and conspiracy theories about election fraud.
The comedian then did his part “to begin the healing process, bring down the temperature, and tone down the rhetoric” with a succinct message for Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and other Republicans who have since tried to move on from the deadly scenes.
“Fuck you, you cretinous insurrectionist gargoyles,” said Meyers. “Of course you guys want to move on. The kid who shit himself at prom is the one who always wants to shift the conversation to everyone’s summer plans.”
“You guys incited a violent mob that rampaged across the Capitol trying to overthrow the government and now you want us to seek unity and healing?” Meyers added. “I’d call you craven, soulless ghouls, but in the case of these seditionist dipshits, they’re more like soul-devouring ghouls.”
“How can we find unity with people who literally want a Confederacy?” he added.
