On Wednesday’s Late Night With Seth Meyers, Meyers and guest Amy Poehler once again brought back “Really!?! With Seth and Amy,” made famous on Saturday Night Live’s “Weekend Update.” This time the pair took issue with a recent tweet from former FBI Director James Comey in which he warned Democrats not to move too far to the left.
Democrats, please, please don’t lose your minds and rush to the socialist left. This president and his Republican Party are counting on you to do exactly that. America’s great middle wants sensible, balanced, ethical leadership.
— James Comey (@Comey) July 22, 2018
Many blame Comey for Hillary Clinton’s defeat, as he publicly reopened an investigation into her private email server — which he later declared not worthy of pursuing — just days before the 2016 presidential election. That’s why Meyers and Poehler found it comical that he is trying to serve as an adviser to Democrats this time around.
“Really, James Comey? You want to weigh in on things when there’s an election coming up? You feel like that’s gone well for you in the past?” Meyers said to open the segment. “That’s like Michael Jordan saying, ‘I think I’m going to take another shot at baseball.’”
Meyers and Poehler shared the Weekend Update desk from 2006 to 2008 and have continued the “Really!?!” segment on Late Night, including a rant about women’s sports that went viral in 2015. But this time it was all about Comey and his tweet.
“You’re worried the Democrats are going to move too far to the left? Really?” Poehler said during the segment. “I don’t know if you remember, but we were just about to have a nice, boring, moderate Democrat for a president until you decided to open your mouth a week before the election, you big dumb scarecrow.”
