It was going to be a hard one to do, considering all of the sexual harassment issues, politics, and more – but Seth Meyers did the best he could with the hand he had dealt to him.
His ‘Saturday Night Live’ style jokes toward the President and at the expense of Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein were poignant and trod the line enough to both make laughs happen, as well as say “Oh, wow, uh, that is so true.”

He then goes on to say “And now we’ll just wait and see what happens.”
