Seth Meyers Explains El Chapo’s Capture, Can’t Explain Just How Sean Penn Got Involved in the Whole Mess


With a mixture of snark and awe, Seth Meyers devoted another "Closer Look" segment to the capture of Mexican drug lord Joaquín Guzmán Loera, better known as "El Chapo," arrested Friday after six months on the lam. The snark comes from CNN's awful attempt at wringing every last bit of news value out of its coverage; the awe from the fact that El Chapo's drug empire apparently had submarines. Submarines! (And yet he couldn't afford one more T-shirt.) There's also a lengthy digression about Sean Penn's Rolling Stone interview with El Chapo, which doesn't even try to explain how Penn got involved because, really, who can explain Sean Penn.
