He then continued, "And now some Republicans and GOP pundits are floating the possibility of making Donald Trump the new Speaker of the House".

"Seth is back providing cathartic comic relief to those so exhausted by the Republican Clown Show," a fan quipped.

One wrote on the video’s comment section, “It'll be interesting watching Republicans nominate a guy who can't complete a sentence, to be Speaker of the House”.

Another penned, “Being speaker of the House is an actual job with real work that you have to do. Trump wouldn't last a day”.

One user under the name @silvermainecoons3269 commented, "It’s SO good to have Seth back. He is the only one that can make me laugh at the surreal state of politics."
