There are plenty of juicy details to fixate on — Trump’s nearly billion dollar loss, the possibility that he didn’t pay any income tax for nearly two decades, the way his business losses affected his less-wealthy investors — but Late Night’s Seth Meyers was particularly interested in taking a closer look at where the anonymously sent tax document came from. “Who would have a motive to destroy Donald Trump?” Meyers asked, before pictures of various Republican politicians, women scorned, and a whole nation popped up to answer his question.
