Seth Meyers takes aim at Donald Trump's proposed border wall
In recent weeks, Seth Meyers has taken aim at Donald Trump’s “batsh— crazy” press conference, Sweden blunder, and much more. Now, he’s going after the president’s plan to build a wall on the United States-Mexico border.
On Wednesday’s Late Night, Meyers used his latest Closer Look segment to delve deeper into the country’s alleged immigration issues, noting that many studies show more Mexicans are leaving the U.S. than coming.
“That’s right, America has turned into a bad movie and people are walking out,” he said, joking they will “‘catch this garbage when it’s on TNT.'”
The host moved on to Trump’s declaration that he will have a wall built to keep immigrants from coming into the country illegally. Meyers found a few slight problems with that, including the fact that no one seems to want to pay for such an undertaking, and even Republican politicians in affected states are against the decision — with one calling Trump’s wall comments more of an analogy.
“So the wall is see through, but impenetrable. An analogy, but also real,” added Meyers. “Don’t you see Dorothy, the wall was inside you all along. You’re the wall. You’re all the wall.”
Late Night airs on NBC at 12:35 a.m. ET.
