Late Night host Seth Meyers didn’t mince words during his “A Closer Look” segment, where he ripped Trump to shreds for his Nazi “vermin” remarks, and his plans for revenge if we’re unfortunate enough to find him back in the White House again.
Seth Meyers Demolishes Trump for Plans to Take Revenge on Critics: ‘F– This Dips–, Racist Doofus’:
During his “A Closer Look” segment, Meyers was simply floored by recent reports from The Washington Post and New York Times, which indicated that Trump and his allies have begun planning “sweeping raids, mass deportations, detention camps, using the military to suppress civil demonstrations and weaponizing the Justice Department to go after critics.”
“F— this dips—, racist, doofus, thinks he can set up a dictatorship in 2024, despite having like nine sets of handcuffs on him,” Meyers fired back.
Of course, that came after the late night took a moment to turn away from the audience to address a separate camera, meant for Trump specifically.
“I just want to say, I’ve always liked you Donny,” he joked. “I hide it beneath a veneer of contempt because I’m afraid to show my true feelings, but I’ve always thought you were handsome, strong and rich, and you never cheated at golf! You’re honestly better than Tiger Woods.”
He continued, “This Closer Look guy’s just character I play, I don’t mean any of this. I just read the words that Wally holds. If you’re going to arrest somebody arrest Wally!”
Meyers also hit him for who he’s surrounding himself with:
Meyers added that he believes Trump has too many obstacles standing in the way of his desired presidential comeback. “First of all, he’s surrounded by moronic criminal goons like Rudy Giuliani and Steve Bannon, who can barely string a coherent sentence together without simultaneously committing a crime,” he said.
Another problem Meyers thinks Trump has is the fact that the former president is sharing his plans with “increasingly and openly fascist rhetoric.” Meyers referenced a speech made by Trump on Saturday, Veterans Day, which was intended to honor the men and women who have served the country.
“In honor of our great veterans on Veterans Day, we pledge to you that we will root out the Communist, Marxist, fascist, and the radical thugs that live like vermin within the confines of our country,” Trump said.
To which Meyers responded: “That was supposed to be in honor of veterans?… Dude, you’re a former game-show host. You’re the next General Hux [an evil Star Wars character]. Usually, veterans want to hear something like, ‘We will honor your sacrifice,’ not ‘We will root out the vermin from within.'”
Meyers concluded by cautioning viewers that Trump “is very much planning on completing his authoritarian takeover if he wins in 2024, and it’s clear he’s got the support of the Republican Party.”
