Seth Meyers' Evisceration of Donald Trump on the Birther Issue Is His Most Satisfying Takedown Yet

What Seth Meyers did last night on Late Night was the most satisfying takedown of Donald Trump since John Oliver’s Drumpf video way back in February. Meyers does here what the press has failed to forcefully do: Call Donald Trump out on his birther lies since Friday. Granted, the mainstream media has not been shy about calling out Trump’s untruths, but here, Meyers catalogues those lies and concludes, in no uncertain times, that Donald Trump is a “lying racist.” He goes a step further, too, and casts blame on the Republican party for elevating Trump’s birther lies.

It’s immensely satisfying, especially in contrast to what Jimmy Fallon did last week by inviting Donald Trump onto his show and normalizing his behavior.

This — and Meyers’ other “Closer Look” segments — continues to distinguish him from the other network late-night competition, putting him in the same class with his cable colleagues, Samantha Bee and John Oliver.
