Many of Trump’s allies have tried to rewrite history about what went down on Jan. 6., including his daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, who suggested on Fox News Wednesday that Trump didn’t orchestrate the insurrection and was actually trying to sound the alarm bell before a mob of his supporters laid siege to the U.S. Capitol.
“I’m sorry, what? Trump tried to warn people about the coup he fomented? Do you mean like the way a serial killer warns the cops about his next move?” Meyers quipped on “Late Night” Thursday.
“I’m sorry but if you’re trying to tell us now, nearly a year later, that Trump was actually warning everyone about the coup he fomented, then ‘You are fake news,’” he added, using a clip of Trump scolding a reporter to illustrate his last four words.
