NBC's "Late Night" host Seth Meyers flipped the middle finger to President Donald Trump on Wednesday night.
During a segment called "Closer Look," Meyers cited a Newsweek story about Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's motorcade being flipped off while he was on his trip to New Zealand.
"To be hated by New Zealand?" Meyers asked. "Trump hasn't just lost Earth, he lost Middle Earth. Even Frodo's like, ‘Here's one finger to rule them all.'"
Meyers then gave the finger to the camera.
Shortly afterward, Meyers flipped off the camera again, but this time it was directed at Trump.
Meyers was discussing the news that former FBI Director Jame Comey released his opening statement of his much anticipated congressional testimony scheduled for Thursday. He showed a montage of cable news clips of pundits describing the fallout from the opening statement. One CNN analyst declared that Trump was guilty of obstruction of justice.
"Well, Mr. President, as they say in New Zealand," Meyers said before proceeding to flip the bird again.
NBC did not censor the two incidents.
