Last week during a Republican dinner in Baltimore, Vice President Mike Pence claimed that he was bitten by Triple Crown-winning racehorse American Pharoah. Pence claims that American Pharoah bit him so hard that he almost collapsed.
American Pharoah’s manager has spoken out to state that Pence’s story is false. He stated that had American Pharoah bitten he would have known it.
Comedian Seth Meyers recently joked that he hoped that Pence’s story is true and that American Pharoah would be able to keep the United States out of a war with Iran.
During the Late Show on Monday night, Meyers discussed Trump’s weekend tweets about the drone attacks on a Saudi Arabian oil facility and his backpedaling on overtures he has made to Iran.
Meyers stated that Trump is rewriting history because the Saudis want the U.S. to join them in a new conflict. He said that he is especially concerned over Trump tweeting that the U.S. is “locked and loaded” and “waiting to hear from [Saudi Arabia] as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!”
“Think about how insane this is,” Meyers said. “The president of the United States, the guy who spent the entire campaign falsely claiming he wanted to stay out of the Middle East and would put America first, just threatened war with Iran on Twitter and said he was waiting for Saudi Arabia to tell him what to do. I never thought I’d say this, but someone needs to let American Pharoah loose in the Oval Office. He doesn’t even need to bite Trump, just chase him around for a while, keep him distracted.”
