Here’s a clip from last night’s Late Night, where Seth Meyers covers a pile of the latest Trump news including his new proposed immigration policy, Stephen Miller’s comments at the White House press briefing, and Trump’s terrible poll numbers. “Those sound less like poll numbers and more like your wife yelling at you after you got too drunk at a party: ‘I married you because I thought you were levelheaded but you embarrassed me tonight, Michael!
