Seth Meyers Goes After First Daughter Ivanka Trump in Another Late-Night Low

Give these so-called comedians a stage and a few lights, and they're off jabbing at the president any way they can

Comedian Seth Meyers took a jab at first daughter Ivanka Trump in Tuesday’s broadcast of “Late Night” in a segment he called “Seth’s Teen Slang.”

In his 40s now, Meyers lamented how challenged he is when it comes to keeping up with teenage lingo.

“Nothing makes me feel older than when I realize I no longer understand the slang terms that teenagers are using,” said Meyers to his audience.

In an aim to enlighten and educate his late-night crowd — as only late-night hosts oozing with infinite wisdom can — Meyers offered the slang equivalents of commonly used terms.

First up: “Ivanka” — a reference, of course, to President Donald Trump’s eldest daughter, which Meyers defined as “someone whose job description is very unclear.”

But Meyers didn’t stop there.

He then used the term in a sentence to poke even more fun at Ivanka Trump — a mother, successful businesswoman, fashion designer, and author — who plays a key role as an adviser in her father’s White House administration.

“Ever since I started working at Forever 21, this blonde lady keeps coming up to me, telling me to ‘make sure I fold the cardigans,’ and then she just kind of wanders out of the store. Girl’s a total Ivanka,” said Meyers, going for the yuks.

An equal opportunity offender, Meyers also derided actress Cynthia Nixon, a Democrat who recently announced her candidacy for the governorship of New York. Nixon also played the ever-cynical-on-relationships lawyer Miranda Hobbes in the HBO television sitcom “Sex and the City.”

“A total Miranda,” said Meyers, “is that one friend in every group who decides to run for governor of New York.”

Meyers, warmed up now, also took swipes at other people, including CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, and at Facebook.
