Why Seth Meyer's Opening Monologue Made Our Jaws Drop

With an opening line such as "Good evening ladies and remaining gentlemen", we know from the get go we were in for a politically charged speech. 

"It's 2018 and marijuana is finally allowed and sexual harassment finally isn't," Seth continued on. 

But that was only the beginning. 

Through a string of zippy one liners, audience interaction and stories, Meyers took aim at Trump, sexual harassment and the #MeToo movement, Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein and so much more. 

The well thought out and perfectly executed speech is one of the best we've seen from an opening monologue at an awards show in recent time. 

What did you think?
