Seth Meyershad some fun atRex Tillerson’sexpense over “Moron-gate” on Thursday’s “Late Night.”
Meyers ridiculed the secretary of state’s press conference in which he pushed back on a report that he’d called PresidentDonald Trumpa “moron”over the summer. Tillerson did not deny using the term.
“To think a guy’s a moron and then be forced to publicly say he’s smart,” said Meyers, while shaking his head in disbelief.
But the comedian did have a theory why Tillerson appeared to acquiesce so easily. “I guess when your name is Rex, you’re gonna be good at rolling over,” he joked. “Good boy, Rex! Good boy!”
