Seth Meyers on Thursday recalled what â€œmight be the funniest criticism of a president Iâ€™ve ever heard.â€
And it came from Fox Newsâ€™ Dana Perino.
Perino, talking with the network personality Tucker Carlson this week, tried to call out President Joe Biden for not singing â€œHappy Birthdayâ€ to a boy attending his State of the Union address. Biden did wish the boy well, though.
It was a â€œmissed moment for humanity,â€ Perino bombastically declared.
Meyers jumped into character as the Fox host:
â€œHe addressed the crisis in Ukraine and rising inflation, but I did miss hearing â€˜Happy Birthday.â€™ Look, Iâ€™m not saying I needed the whole, â€˜How old are you now?â€™ verse, that would have been overkill. But where was the song? I feel as though, clue, weâ€™re a country without a leader.â€
