Seth Meyers threw away a planned segment of “A Closer Look” on Thursday’s “Late Night” to instead talk about the “bat sh*t crazy” press conference Donald Trump had. Trump held his first solo press conference since becoming president and it was exactly what people thought it would be.
“Donald Trump held what can only be described as a bats— crazy press conference that rendered this script completely meaningless,” Meyers said
Trump’s press conference was full of contradicting statements, insults towards the media and other groups, and full out racist comments.
For example, a reporter asked him if he would take a meeting with black and Latino Congress members. He asked the black reporter if she would like to set up the meeting herself and then asked, “Are they friends of yours?”
Meyers described Trump’s response as “pretty racist.”
“It’s racist to assume all black people know each other. You don’t know all orange people. ‘Hey, Donald, can you set up a meeting with Snooki and the Lorax?'”
