Seth Meyers Bids Farewell To Ron DeSantis With A Cringe-Inducing Reminder

Seth Meyers on Tuesday said he still had some pressing questions for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), who dropped out of the GOP presidential race last week.

So, the “Late Night” comedian brought the former candidate back onstage for a (spoof) debate with rival Nikki Haley. (It had nothing to do with the fact that they created the parody sketch before DeSantis suspended his campaign, of course.)

Via some clever editing, Meyers appeared to grill DeSantis and Haley about campaign cash, former President Donald Trump’s bid for immunity from prosecution and more.

But Meyers kept returning to the awkward moments from the actual debates when DeSantis tried to deploy his now-trademark smile.
