On Wednesday’s Late Night, Seth Meyers compared Hillary Clinton’s scandals to Donald Trump’s. Clinton’s campaign has been plagued by questions about her email servers and the Clinton Foundation, but few media outlets have reported on the Trump Foundation, until now.
The FBI recently released notes from its interviews with Hillary in which she said she didn’t know the “C” on her emails meant “confidential.” Of course, Trump knew what the “C” meant, right? Last week he tweeted, “Lyin’ Hillary told the FBI that she did not know the ‘C’ markings on documents stood for CLASSIFIED. How can this be happening?”
“Ya know. It’s so great that when Trump is wrong he does us the favor of highlighting it by putting it in all caps,” joked Meyers. “It’s only a matter of time before he tweets, ‘Our best president was our first president ABRAHAM LINCOLN.'”
While Trump has been pushing conspiracy theories about Clinton and her family’s foundation, many have ignored Trump’s own foundation. “One reason you probably heard less about it is because it’s not exactly clear what the Trump Foundation does,” Meyers said. “The Clinton Foundation provides life-saving care to AIDS patients while the Trump Foundation once gave $250 to the Special Olympics and $100 to the March of Dimes. Did he think the name meant you could only give dimes?”
It was revealed this week that the Trump Foundation donated $25,000 to Attorney General Pam Bondi, who was threatening to investigate Trump University. Donald claims it was a coincidence, but even his daughter, Ivanka, donated $500 to Bondi’s re-election campaign.
“Everyone knows there’s three things Ivanka Trump cares about,” Meyers joked, “the real estate business, high-end fashion, and down-ballot Florida politics.”
