Seth Meyers Has "A Couple Things" For Steve Scalise About Speaking At A White Power Conference
This week Congress is back in session, and yesterday, Republicans held a press conference where reporters continued to ask why the #3 ranking House Republican Steve Scalise gave the keynote address at a white power conference twelve years ago.
Which brings us to a segment we like to call…“A Couple Things.”
Okay, so Congressman Scalise, couple things. First thing: You said you didn’t know anything about the crowd you were speaking to because tools like Google weren’t available back then.
Of course, back then we called it “Google.”
Second Thing: You didn’t just attend the conference. You gave the keynote address.
Third Thing: Kenny Knight, The man who asked Scalise to speak at the conference, defended him by saying he and Scalise never talked about race or the Jewish question.
The Jewish question?!
Final Thing: John Boehner said today of Scalise that he knows what’s in his heart. With all due respect, politicians, I don’t want to know what’s in your heart. This isn’t a song from the ‘80s. I want to know what’s in your head.
