Seth Meyers Reminds Democrats It’s Time to Take Action: “It’s Been a While Since You’ve Had a Hit”

Here’s a clip from last night’s Late Night, where Seth Meyers takes “A Closer Look” at the Republicans’ “slash-and-burn” strategy to push through terrible cabinet appointees and what Democrats are doing — or more importantly, aren’t doing — to fight back. “Democrats have to do more than just be against things. They also have to have something to offer to Americans who are so desperate for change that they voted for Donald Trump,” Meyers says, pointing to rising Democratic figures like Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders who want to make change happen compared to “old guard” Democrats like Nancy Pelosi who won’t acknowledge how much the party has lost touch with working-class voters. “Democrats, you’re The Pussycat Dolls of Capitol Hill — it’s been a while since you’ve had a hit,” Meyers says. “You have millions of fired-up protesters demanding that you stand up to Trump. More of you should be on board with Warren. I mean, isn’t there anyone out there willing to stand up and fight?”
