Smug Lefty Seth Meyers Hates Texas and 'Heinous,' 'Diabolical' Abortion Law


Do you live in a red state? Are you pro-life? Seth Meyers hates you. On Wednesday’s Late Night on NBC, Meyers launched into a long-winded diatribe against West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin, the Supreme Court, and Texas for the state’s new “heinous and truly diabolical law” pro-life law.

Transitioning from trashing Joe Manchin., Meyers wondered when he intends to “do something” about “the pandemic, climate change, democracy itself or the right’s intensifying assault on Roe v. Wade, which took a horrifying turn last week when the Supreme Court, in the dead of night, upheld a heinous and truly diabolical law in Texas that bans abortions in brazen defiance of Supreme Court precedent and the Constitution.” 

Apparently, it never occurred to Meyers that some people in this country support the Texas law. 

 

 

Meyers then played a clip of MSNBC’s Chris Hayes on September 2 ranting about the Court and the  popular vote:

In the dead of night. They did it in the dead of night, five Republican Supreme Court justices, including three appointed by Donald Trump, a man who lost the popular vote in 2016 by nearly three million votes, they destroyed a woman’s right to bodily autonomy and reproductive choice. First in the state of Texas, but who knows what’s next. And they did it shortly before midnight no big public announcement, with an order that is barely more than a page long.

Meyers then repeated everything Hayes and said, adding that the Supreme Court just does not measure up to his own legal genius, “They did it in the dead of the night, in little more than a page the same way a rich kid half-asses a freshman English paper, because he knows he can’t fail out. The font is size 16, the margins are two inches on each side, and at one point, you claim ‘Beowulf’ is about a wolf who lives by the bay on a houseboat like my dad, the senator.'”

After repeating Hayes’ irrelevant point about the popular vote, Meyers showed his own ignorance, “They gutted a woman’s right to choose in Texas, and who knows where else next, despite never commanding majority support from the American people. And they don’t give a [ bleep ], because they’re there for life I mean, if that’s how our government’s gonna work, then why not just have a [ bleep ] monarchy.”   

The same Court that undemocratically issued a procedural ruling in the Texas case is the same  institution that undemocratically issued Roe v. Wade, which Meyers loves. If he truly wants abortion to be a democratic issue, then he should be urging the court to repeal Roe.

For Meyers, that the Court has undemocratically said abortion is a constitutional right, but may possibly reconsider is clear proof “that our democracy is on fire and that we desperately need far-reaching changes like Supreme Court reform, eliminating the electoral college, banning gerrymandering and radically expanding voting rights.”

If Meyers is such a legal expert, maybe next time he can show his viewers where in the Constitution this right to an abortion is to be found.

Late Night with Seth Meyers

12:47 AM ET

SETH MEYERS: The nation faces a series of massive existential crises brewing all at once, and we can’t just sit around and wait for one guy in a houseboat to decide whether he wants to do something about it whether it’s the pandemic, climate change, democracy itself or the right’s intensifying assault on Roe v. Wade, which took a horrifying turn last week when the supreme court, in the dead of night, upheld a heinous and truly diabolical law in Texas that bans abortions in brazen defiance of Supreme Court precedent and the Constitution. 

BEGIN CLIP

CHRIS HAYES [SEPTEMBER 2]: In the dead of night. They did it in the dead of night, five Republican Supreme Court justices, including three appointed by Donald Trump, a man who lost the popular vote in 2016 by nearly three million votes, they destroyed a woman’s right to bodily autonomy and reproductive choice. First in the state of Texas, but who knows what’s next. And they did it shortly before midnight no big public announcement, with an order that is barely more than a page long.

END CLIP 

MEYERS:: That’s right. They did it in the dead of the night, in little more than a page the same way a rich kid half-asses a freshman English paper, because he knows he can’t fail out. The font is size 16, the margins are two inches on each side, and at one point, you claim “Beowulf’ is about a wolf who lives by the bay on a houseboat like my dad, the senator.” A-minus? Also, three of the five justices who wrote this odious and contemptuous ruling were appointed by deeply unpopular one-term president who lost the popular vote by three million. They gutted a woman’s right to choose in Texas, and who knows where else next, despite never commanding majority support from the American people. And they don’t give a [ bleep ], because they’re there for life I mean, if that’s how our government’s gonna work, then why not just have a [ bleep ] monarchy at least then, we’d have more messy tabloid drama and a Netflix show called “The Gavel,” where the men get played by actors who are way better looking than the actual Royals I mean, I’m sorry, but Prince Charles being played by Dominic West who’s your casting director, Prince Charles [ light laughter ] “Another option, of course, is putting fake ears on Ryan gosling would that work? [ Laughter ] I mean, how much clearer can it get that our democracy is on fire and that we desperately need far-reaching changes like Supreme Court reform, eliminating the electoral college, banning gerrymandering and radically expanding voting rights and just to underscore the point, the dissents from liberal justices were righteous in their fury and accurately captured just how reckless and grotesque this ruling was.
