Seth Meyers, Jimmy Fallon explain why Mike Pence left NFL game

To put it in football parlance, if Donald Trump is the quarterback of deflection plays, then Mike Pence is his running back.

That’s what Late Night host Seth Meyer wanted his fellow Americans to keep in mind after the vice president left the Colts/49ers game in protest what turned out to be an orchestrated PR stunt over NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem to protest racial injustice.

“Yesterday was also a reminder that we can’t get lost in the circus of Donald Trump and fail to properly evaluate Mike Pence,”  Meyers said in Monday’s “Closer Look” segment. “And this is serious, so I’m going to say it the way Mike Pence would.”

Meyers then went into Pence mode, urging viewers, “Don’t forget for one moment that he speaks softly with furrowed brow from a small, serious mouth, Mike Pence is a liar on equal footing with the president. They deliver their lies differently: The president, fast and wild, as though his mouth was a firehose, whereas Mike Pence lets them seep out slowly, like a fart from a constipated man … And now I’d like to read from Psalm 23, when Jesus said, ‘Keep the van running. I’m only going in for a publicity stunt.’ “

Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon had a different theory for Pence’s early departure.

“He heard the phrase ‘man-on-man’ and got really uncomfortable,” Fallon explained.
