Hey! Seth Meyers cautioned Hillary Clinton on Monday’s Late Night to stay away from making more remarks about Trump’s supporters. The Democratic nominee said in a rally over the weekend that you could put half of all Trump supporters in what she called the “basket of deplorables.” Meyers tried to set a few things straight for Hillary in a segment called “Hey!”
“Hey, Hillary Clinton!” he interjected. “What are you doing? You called Trump supporters a ‘basket of deplorables?’ What’s the matter, you couldn’t think of an insult that made you sound like a richer, whiter lady?”
“‘Basket of deplorables’ sounds like what they call the bargain bin at Neiman Marcus,” Meyers said, noting that it’s where they would keep the Izod products.
Meyers also gave her some advice on scuffling with Trump. “If you’re gonna get in the gutter with Trump, you’re gonna have to do better than that. Don’t bring a Vera Wang shrimp fork to a knife fight”
Seth then pointed out that although Trump has said some nasty things in the election, the media doesn’t cover it like it does her, because there is a double standard in election coverage. “You can’t play tit for tat with Donald Trump, because the media’s only gonna talk about your tats and completely ignore his tits.”
“Hey, it’s not fair,” he added. “But if life were fair, Donald Trump wouldn’t be the Republican nominee. He’d be the second best salesman at a carpet store in Queens.”
