NBC Late Night horde Seth Meyers had a go at Secretary of State Rex Tillerson during his Thursday night show.
Tillerson had called President Donald Trump a “moron” in public, according to mixed reports.
“Tillerson, of course, was forced to issue a matter at a fast organised press discussion yesterday where he took the unusual step of trying to assure the American people that the boss is not, in fact, a moron,” Meyers explained.
During the conference, Tillerson called Trump “smart” and talked about how much the boss allegedly loves America.
“Man, to consider a guy’s a rascal and then be forced to publicly contend he’s smart. we theory when your name is Rex, you’re gonna be good at rolling over,” Meyers joked.
