Seth Meyers Tells Trump - You Can't Be President

The host of the “Late Night” has harshly criticized President Trump after he failed to condemn white supremacists, neo-Nazis and Ku Klux Klan members following the death of one woman and injury to countless others during the Charlottesville riots. When President Trump blamed the violent acts on “many sides”, the public was shocked and disgusted at the lack of accountability and condemnation from the Commander-in-Chief. Seth Meyers was not the only late night talk show host to publicly criticize the president for his response to the Charlottesville riots, with Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel both listing the numerous people Trump has criticized in less time than he did the racist groups.

Having taken more than two days to release a statement properly condemning the actions and ethos of white supremacist groups rallying in Charlottesville, Americans across the country were appalled at Mr. Trump's prior statement that the violence was founded on “many sides” of the rally. “Late Night” host Seth Meyers was quick to criticize the president, stating: “On many sides. If that choice of words doesn’t make you feel sick to your stomach, the good news is you’re a normal and decent person.”

Mr. Meyers went on to recall a slew of inappropriate and racist statements made by the president himself, including his birther conspiracy theory (alleging that former president Barack Obama was not born in the United States) as well as multiple occasions when the President referred to Mexican people as “rapists” and calling Senator Elizabeth Warren “Pocahontas.”

With the president eventually denouncing the three white supremacist groups, Mr. Meyers did admit that the statement “finally struck the right tone"; however, it was a too little too late. “Donald Trump did not immediately denounce the white supremacist movement when given the chance and now, whether he knows it or not, many of those people see him as leading that movement,” Mr. Meyers confirmed. “The jury is still out on the president.”

Mr. Meyers went on to emphasize the damage the president has caused in failing to denounce the fascist groups, asserting that it is the job of the president to “absolutely, unequivocally and immediately condemn what is evil in us.” Mr. Meyers concluded that “You can stand for a nation, or you can stand for a hateful movement. You can’t do both.”

Mr. Meyer’s blistering indictment of the president concluded with a warning from Mr. Meyers, who told the president that “if you don’t make the choice, I’m confident that the American voter will.”

Jimmy Kimmel was also prepared to criticize the president, reading out an extensive list of the many things trump has condemned faster than the fascist, white supremacists: “Hilary Clinton, the New York Times, CNN, Kristen Stewart and the cast of ‘Hamilton’, diet coke…” Kimmel concluded the segment with the humorous statement, “We went into the weekend wondering about Kim Jong Un starting a war." Kimmel said, “We came out of it wondering if our president was cutting eyeholes out of his bedsheets.”
