Late Night with Seth Meyers - Season 5

Seth Meyers is taking a new approach to talking about Donald Trump: urging others not to talk about Donald Trump.

In a new Late Night segment called Stay Out of It, Meyers begins, “Obama, Hillary, don’t comment on Trump right now. Stay out of it. Trump is digging his own grave — don’t grab the shovel. Let him keep digging until the hole is too deep to climb out of.”

He continues, “This is all happening without you, Democrats. Stay out of it! Do as little as possible. If, for some reason Trump actually does debate Hillary, she should just say, ‘Hi, I’m Hillary Clinton,’ and then she should turn off her microphone, open a big bag of Skinny Pop, and watch him slowly unravel.”

Meyers goes on to admit a certain amount of blame for what’s happened in politics. “This is partly our fault,” he says. “We, as a society, have become way more interested in the sideshow than we are in the show. We don’t want trains pulling safely into stations, we want train wrecks.”
