On Tuesday night’s episode of “Late Night,” Seth Meyers introduced a new segment that will certainly become a staple of the show for the next four years: “Tweetin’ with the prez.”
As Meyers points out, once President-elect Trump takes office it will be “the most tweet-filled presidency in history,” especially if Trump will in fact end daily press briefings with White House reporters, as he’s hinted.
“We’re about to enter an era where our president can bypass the traditional press directly and spread lies and conspiracy theories unfiltered through his twitter account,” said Meyers.
Meyers also points out the range of topics Trump will likely address, like Trump’s recent tweet that a China warship seized an underwater drone operated by the US Navy in an “unprecedented act” (though his original tweet he spelled the word as “unpresidented”). And then there was his negative tweet about Vanity Fair after the magazine wrote a negative review of his restaurant Trump Grill.
Has anyone looked at the really poor numbers of @VanityFair Magazine. Way down, big trouble, dead! Graydon Carter, no talent, will be out!

“He writes his tweets like he’s interpreting them from a border collie,” joked Meyers. “‘What’s that, girl? Way down? Big trouble? Dead? Mine collapse? Worker trapped? Call the sheriff! Go!'”
