On Wednesday’s Late Night, Seth Meyers wrapped up Tuesday’s Republican presidential debate on Fox Business network. After complaints about the last debate, “the moderators’ goal this time was essentially to be as boring as possible. And on that front, they totally succeeded.” One of the complaints was the perceived liberal bias of CNBC, so the RNC got back at the media by forcing them to type “StopHillary” as the wifi password. “Interesting fact,” says Seth, “‘Stop Hillary’ is also what Hillary has written on a Post-It stuck to her computer for whenever she’s think about sending a classified email.”
Seth says the real problem with the lax moderation was that the candidates were unfettered from making whatever claims they wanted. Ben Carson said only 19.8 percent of black teenagers have a job because of high wages. Politico pointed out the number is more like 74 percent, “but to be fair to Carson, he had his notes written on the inside of his eyelids, so it must have been hard for him to read,” Seth concludes. Jeb Bush couldn’t get a word in, and ended with the seventh lowest speaking time, which causes Seth to realize that Jeb’s exclamatory slogan is actually “people telling Jeb to be quiet. Jeb! Not now, Jeb!” Watch the video for more.
