Seth Meyers: James Comey Book Proves Pee Tape Is Real


Perhaps the most salacious revelation from James Comey’s new tell-all book is the claim that President Donald Trump asked the former FBI director to investigate the so-called pee tape.

“He brought up what he called the ‘golden showers thing’… adding that it bothered him if there was ‘even a one percent chance’ his wife, Melania, thought it was true,” Comey writes in A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership. “He just rolled on, unprompted, explaining why it couldn’t possibly be true, ending by saying he was thinking of asking me to investigate the allegation to prove it was a lie. I said it was up to him.”

“Oh my god, it’s real,” Seth Meyers said in response Thursday night. “It has to be. Why would you ask the FBI director to investigate a pee tape if you knew for a fact that pee tape definitely didn’t exist? That’s like me saying, ‘Can you make sure there isn’t a tape of me in 1994 doing ‘Thunder Road’ at karaoke and then barfing and then slipping on the barf and farting?’”

The Late Night host said he’s “always thought” the tape was real, dating back to a January 2017 interview Trump gave on Fox News. “Now, pretend you’re a normal, decent person who just got elected president and someone asks you if there’s a pee tape with you in it,” he said. “You’d say something like, ‘That’s insane!’ or ‘What are you talking about?!’”

Instead, Trump told Fox News’ Ainsley Earhardt, “There’s never going to be a tape that shows up. There’s never going to be anything that shows up. Now, I would be very embarrassed if a tape actually showed up, saying something like that. It would be double embarrassed because I’m saying there is no tape.”

“If it came out, I would be embarrassed,” Meyers said. “That’s like if your girlfriend said, ‘Are you cheating on me?’ and you said, ‘Look into my eyes, because what I’m going to tell you is 100 percent true: It would suck if you found out about that.’”
