On Tuesday’s Late Night, the host announced he would be banning the presumed Republican presidential nominee from appearing on his NBC talk show.
And the reason why isn’t that surprising!
“He doesn’t get it, or he gets it better than anybody understands. It’s one or the other… We’re led by a man who is not tough, not smart ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ or he’s got something else in mind. And the something else in mind, you know, people can’t believe it.”
After The Washington Post reported the nominee had suggested POTUS was a terrorist sympathizer, Trump revoked the publication’s press credentials.
While Meyers admitted Trump “didn’t explicitly say” Obama was a terrorist sympathizer, “he implied it with all the subtlety of an eighth grader’s cologne” — noting this was a strategy the candidate often used to “avoid accountability.”
So, the Saturday Night Live alum decided that as long as the Post was banned from Trump’s campaign, Trump would be banned from appearing on Late Night!
AH-Mazing! Ch-ch-check out the Late Night clip (below) to hear Meyers’ full remarks!
