Seth Meyers refused to take a closer look at the day’s news on Tuesday night and who can blame him?
“Mario Kart” was trending on Twitter earlier in the day after former porn star Stormy Daniels likened President Donald Trump’s penis to “the mushroom character in Mario Kart” in her upcoming tell-all book, Full Disclosure.
“I lay there, annoyed that I was getting fucked by a guy with yeti pubes and a dick like the mushroom character in Mario Kart,” Daniels wrote, according to The Guardian.
Referencing the memoir, Meyers was adamant that his head wasn’t in the gutter, “it’s the news which is in the gutter.”
“So for once, I’m going to say let’s not take a closer look,” Meyers said. “That’s a joke about the news. You might be saying ‘How dare you make a joke about a penis looking like a video game character.’ That’s the fucking news right now.”
