Actor Josh Meyers, the younger brother of “Late Night” host Seth Meyers, jumped into character as California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) for a comedy bit on Thursday’s broadcast of the show.
While the actual state governor has endured somewhat of a roller coaster working relationship with Donald Trump, Meyers’ version pulled no punches with his critique of the president during a spoof coronavirus briefing.
“They say coronavirus particles can spread up to 6 feet but when the president talks, his bullshit particles make it all the way to California,” Meyers said as Newsom. He also slammed the “chowderheads” protesting stay-at-home orders and Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the Trump ally he described as a “fuck nugget.”
