Seth Meyers Does Something He Saved For Years To Honor George Bush's 'Iraq' Gaffe

·1 min read

“Late Night” host Seth Meyers took two different kinds of shots at former President George W. Bush on Thursday.

Bush made a presidential-level mistake earlier this week when he slipped up and referenced a “wholly unjustified and brutal” invasion of Iraq.

He later corrected himself, referencing the invasion of Ukraine, but the internet swiftly found a “Freudian slip” in his error.

Meyers, who played the clip on his show, said Bush’s hiccup was proof of reality being a “simulation.”

The host flashed a nervous look so he eased his stress with the help of some alcohol.

“You know, when I started this show I poured exactly one shot of whiskey and left it in the drawer of my desk in case of emergency,” Meyers said.

“And throughout the entirety of the Trump presidency, I resisted using it, but you know what? F―k it.”

You can watch a clip of Meyers’ much-needed shot below.
