Seth Meyers took A Closer Look at Donald Trump‘s new immigration stance for a Late Night segment Thursday, and what he found left a bad taste in his mouth.

“Trump is softening, also known as flip-flopping,” Meyers said, cringing at the innuendo. “He’s softening and flopping. He’s really sagging in the swing states. You see, his poll percentage is down and he can’t seem to get it up. He can’t get any penetration in the… ugh, I do not feel good doing this.”

While Trump remained firm in his immigration plan and using such unsavory language, he recently started changing his angle amid low polling numbers. Citing a recent interview with Bill O’Reilly in which he “praised Obama,” Meyers said, “That’s right, Trump now says he’s gonna do the exact same thing as Obama. Although Trumps copying Obamas is a family tradition.”

Later, Meyers concludes, “Trump’s trying to have it both ways: he wants to change his position on immigration to broaden his appeal, while also assuring his hardcore supporters he’s not changing at all.”
