Seth Meyers ‘Blames’ Obama For Trump’s Presidential Run (Video)





Not crazy about the job President Donald Trump is doing? Blame his predecessor, Barack Obama. At least that’s what Seth Meyers had to say in an interview with “Sunday Today,” which airs Aug. 13.

In what we’re pretty sure was a joke, Meyers told Willie Geist that he knew way back in 2011 that Obama would force Trump to make a bid for the highest office in the land.

Reflecting on the 2011 White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, which Meyers performed at, the “Saturday Night Live” alum said that he knew Obama’s merciless roasting of Trump over Trump’s suggestion that Obama might not have been born in America would spell trouble one day.

“I think it was probably because of President Obama. I think I’d blame him,” Meyers told Geist. “I feel like he took it too far. The whole time Obama was going, I was like, ‘This isn’t fair. You’re going to make this guy run for president and this will be 100 percent on you.'”

Watch a preview of Meyers’ interview here — and, if you could use a laugh, Obama’s 2011 roast of Trump below.

22 'Rediculous' Typos From Trump's White House, From 'Attaker' to 'Unpresidented' (Photos)

  • donald trump twitter barack obama

    You can't have "the best words" if you can't correctly spell them. Even more serious than the Trump administration's beef with CNN is its beef with grammar, as is evidenced by a score of tweets and official White House documents that are riddled with spelling errors, misused words and downright gibberish. Here are 21 of the worst (and most laughable) offenses.

  • trump typo white house cbo

    "Innaccurately"

    Oh, the irony! The White House tried to call out the Congressional Budget Office for inaccuracy but inaccurately spelled the word "innaccurately."

    White House/Twitter
  • trump twitter typo

    "Honered"

    Before "covfefe," there was "honered." Of course, newly-inaugurated Trump meant to tweet that he was "honored," but that's not what happened.

  • trump twitter typo 2

    "Unpresidented"

    According to Huffington Post, Trump Twitter-slammed China for seizing a U.S. underwater drone in December 2016. He also made up a word in the process. By “unpresidented,” we can assume he meant “unprecedented.”

    Twitter
  • white house typos 1

    "San Bernadino"

    The White House got a few things wrong with this list of “unreported” terror attacks. First, many of the incidents actually had been reported. Second, “San Bernardino” was spelled incorrectly.

    White House/Twitter
  • white house typo 2

    "Attaker"

    In the same report, the WH managed to misspell “attacker” 23 times in a row. That has to be some sort of record.

    White House/Twitter
  • dept. of education typo dubois

    "W.E.B. DeBois"

    The U.S. Department of Education (DOE) botched the name of legendary civil rights activist, W.E.B. DuBois. It’s DU Bois, as in “DU” they realize the epic mistake they made?

    Twitter
  • deepest apologies white house typo

    "Deepest apologizes"

    Apparently, the DOE did catch the gaffe and subsequently tweeted out an apology… sort of.

    Twitter/The Washington Post
  • White House Colombia typo

    "Columbia"

    This is a common spelling error that also tripped up Steve Harvey in the past. For the record, when referring to the country, the correct spelling is "Colombia."

    White House/Twitter
  • White House typo 3

    “Possibility of lasting peach”

    According to a White House press release, one of Trump’s objectives during his most recent visit to Israel was to “promote the possibility of lasting peach” between Israelis and Palestinians. Who needs peace when you can have peaches?

    White House/Twitter
  • White House typo 3

    “Couple with changes”

    Another typo from the same press release. This time, someone left off the “d” in the word “coupled.” Hence, we have “A new approach, couple with changes.”

    White House/Twitter
  • Trump counsel typo screenshot

    "Councel"

    After Trump tweeted this misspelling on May 18, Merriam-Webster reported that "councel" was their most-searched word of that day.

    Twitter/The Hill
  • Trump Twitter typo "tapp"

    "Tapp"

    President Obama did not "tapp" Trump's phone at any time during his two terms in office, because there is no such word as "tapp" in the English language.

    Twitter
  • Trump inauguration portrait + typo

    Too vs. To

    This was not a tweet. This was Donald Trump's official inauguration portrait... with an egregious typo printed front and center.

  • donald trump theresa may press release typo

    "Teresa May"

    This mistake doesn’t seem too critical… until you consider the fact that Teresa (sans “h”) May is the name of a British porn star, not the British Prime Minister. The latter spells her first name with an "h."

    White House/Huffington Post
  • trump twitter typo "hereby"

    "Hear by"

    He should have typed "hereby." Of course, POTUS received a lot of flack for this one, among his many other botched spellings.

    Twitter/Pro Publica
  • betsy devos typo

    "Educatuon"

    Failure took the form of a White House Snapchat on April 17. There's no excuse for this one.

  • trump twitter typo 4

    "Thr" and "Gas"

    Trump displayed poor spelling in his attempt to shade two credible news outlets via Twitter.

    Twitter
  • trump misspells the word "among"

    "Amoung"

    "Amoung," many other things, he will also not use spellcheck.

    Twitter
  • president trump typo

    "Predisent"

    This was a statement made by Trump's lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, in an official White House document.

    White House/Twitter
  • trump misspells "ridiculous"

    "Rediculous"

    Once again, Trump unleashes a grammatically incorrect Twitter rage at his arch nemesis, CNN.

    Twitter/ProPublica
  • trump typo maga

    "Make American Great Again"

    On August 4, Trump (or more likely one of his editors) botched his own campaign slogan. Is nothing sacred?!

    As Merriam-Webster so nicely put it, "heal (to become healthy again)

    heel (a contemptible person)."

Welcome to the White House: where the words are made up, and spellcheck doesn’t matter

You can't have "the best words" if you can't correctly spell them. Even more serious than the Trump administration's beef with CNN is its beef with grammar, as is evidenced by a score of tweets and official White House documents that are riddled with spelling errors, misused words and downright gibberish. Here are 21 of the worst (and most laughable) offenses.
