Seth Meyers Takes “A Closer Look” at Donald Trump’s Charlottesville Press Conference

Here’s a clip from last night’s Late Night, where Seth Meyers takes “A Closer Look” at Donald Trump’s decision earlier this week to give an impromptu Charlottesville press conference where, instead of finally condemning white supremacists by name, he doubled down on defending them and said that there were “very fine people” in that group. “No. There are no ‘fine’ people marching with Nazis and white supremacists. No one gets accidentally caught up in a white supremacist rally. It just doesn’t happen, except for that one time on Seinfeld. And I would argue even George Costanza isn’t a ‘very fine’ person,” Meyers says. “Trump isn’t just a racist, he’s also a narcissist. He defends the white nationalist movement both because he’s racist and because they show up and they chant his name and they show him love, and his brain disease makes it impossible for him to denounce anyone who supports him. What Tuesday showed is that Donald Trump will never change. He showed us again who he really is: a lying racist who’s desperate for praise.”
