Seth Meyers launches scathing criticism of Trump
Meyers delved into a New York Times article describing Trump’s alleged plans, highlighting the ex-president’s propensity to retaliate against his critics and implement strict immigration measures, including mass deportations and creation of sprawling detention camps.
Unsurprisingly, Meyers minced no words in his response to these reported intentions.

I hide it under a veneer of contempt because I’m afraid to show my true feelings. But I always thought you were handsome, strong and rich, and that you never cheated at golf.

Additionally, Meyers criticized Trump’s rhetoric, particularly highlighting a Veterans Day speech that transformed a moment intended to honor veterans into a thinly veiled call for the elimination of perceived enemies in the country .
Meyers joked: “Dude, you’re a former game show host. You’re not General Hux. Usually veterans want to hear something like ‘we’ll honor your sacrifice,’ not ‘we’ll root out the vermin from the ‘interior. ” “
Beyond the comedic jabs, Meyers also expressed genuine concern, emphasizing that Trump’s authoritarian leanings, coupled with support from the Republican Party, pose a serious threat to democracy.
He highlighted the unwavering loyalty of Trump’s children, playfully portraying them as extensions of their father’s controversial behavior.
Amid the satire and humor, Meyers emphasized the serious nature of Trump’s potential return to power and the implications it would have for the democratic fabric of the United States.
