Seth Meyers Breaks Down All of the Lies Donald Trump Told About His Birther Past

If you’ve been living in the wilderness for the past several days, perhaps you missed the news that Donald Trump now believes that President Obama was born in America. Not only did the Republican nominee recant his prior birther stance, he also claimed the conspiracy was all Hillary Clinton’s fault. Seth Meyers, and video footage evidence, however, aren’t buying this story. During Monday night’s “Closer Look” segment, the Late Night host took Trump to task for his claim that he “finished” the birther controversy. “Fuck you, explanation point,” Meyers yelled gleefully, “You don’t get to peddle racist rhetoric for five years and decide when it’s over. We decide when it’s over.” You tell ‘em, Seth. Also, let the record show, it’s unlikely Trump will have his hair tousled by Meyers anytime soon.
