Former FBI director James Comey's Senate testimony Thursday was both a divine gift and curse for late-night talk show hosts and writers, who had to scramble together material for their shows based on Comey's public grilling.

On NBC, Seth Meyers took a closer look at the drawn out question-and-answer session on Thursday's Late Night With Seth Meyers (and America thanks him for it because many are still perplexed by what on earth John McCain trying to say).

The comedian surmised that no new damning accusations about U.S. President Donald Trump could shock the American people any more than they've already been shocked in the past six months.

"Our capacity to be shocked has already been so worn down by the Trump presidency…he's like your druggie cousin that can no longer surprise you," Meyers said.

Meyers also skewered Republican senator Jim Risch's pedantic attempt to obfuscate Trump's words to Comey about dropping his investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Comey alleged Trump told him, "I hope you can let this go," which he believed to be a "direction."

In the senate hearing, Risch, however, wasn't buying it. "He did not direct you to let it go. He did not order you to let it go. He said, 'I hope.' You may have taken it as a direction but that's not what he said."

Meyers seized on the exchange saying, "Look, when someone says, 'I hope you'll join us for dinner,' they want you to come to dinner. They're not going to open the door and say, 'What the hell are you doing here?' 'You invited me.' 'I was just hoping.'"

Away from the senate, house speaker Paul Ryan tried to excuse Trump's alarming lack of protocol, saying he was still learning the intricacies of being president. "He's just new to this," said Ryan.

Joked Meyers: "So, wait…the president is learning on the job? Even at Chipotle you have to shadow someone for a week."
