Late-night hosts came knocking Thursday following reports of a Trump World Tower doorman’s involvement in a “catch-and-kill” scheme to protect President Trump.
The National Enquirer's parent company, led by Trump's close friend David Pecker, reportedly paid the Manhattan doorman $30,000 for a story about an affair Trump allegedly had with a housekeeper that produced a child — then buried the story. Naturally, the hosts gleefully rehashed it for laughs.
“The National Enquirer paid $30,000 to a former doorman to suppress his story about a possible illegitimate child President Trump may have fathered. Even crazier, this is the doorman,” Seth Meyers quipped on “Late Night,” showing a picture of a heavily pregnant doorman.
