Seth Meyers tears into Trump for ‘tough on crime’ lie

lanx seth meyers crime law and order trump

Seth Meyers took a “Closer Look” on Wednesday’s Late Night at President Trump’s claim that he is a “law and order” despite defending Roy Moore.

“Trump says he wants to stop crime,” Meyers explained, “but he’s backing an accused child molester over a prosecutor who convicted the KKK, which tells you that when he uses the word ‘crime,’ that’s not what he really means.”

“He doesn’t want to stop ‘crime,’ he wants to stop immigrants, refugees, or his political opponents.”

Trump defended Roy Moore by saying, “He totally denied it, says it didn’t happen… I have to listen to him…I do have to say, 40 years is a long time…all you can do, is you have to do what you have to do.”

Meyers joked, that sounds “like a fortune cookie written by somebody who is completely out of ideas.”
