President Trump rolled back federal protection of trans students this week and Seth Meyers scolded him for it on Thursday’s Late Night. In his short segment “Hey!” Meyers addressed Trump directly for his latest controversial order.
“Hey! What are you doing?” Meyers said. “As I understand it, you were elected to bring jobs back to the U.S. Now you don’t want to let transgender kids use the bathroom of the gender they identify with? Do you think that’s why the auto industry went to Mexico? For the bathrooms?”
“First you demonize Muslims, then immigrants and now the transgender community,” he remarked. “Hey! Just because you want to bring back coal mining doesn’t mean you have to bring back everything from the 1800s.”
Meyers then brought up a tweet from last year in which Trump said he would “fight for” the LGBT community. “Did you not mean to include the word ‘for?’” asked Meyers.
