Seth Meyers last night chastized Dem presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton for describing half of Donald Trump supporters as a “basket of deplorables” when she previously told Meyers on his show that the media judges her by a different standard than they do Trump.
‘What are you doing called trump supporters a ‘basket of deplorables?!’ What’s the matter – you couldn’t come up with an insult that sound like a richer, whiter lady?” he lectured.
“Yeah, Donald Trump called Mexicans ‘rapists’ and has called your supporters a hundred different names, but there is a double standard in play in this election,” he reminded.
“I know it stinks, but this election has an older sister/younger brother dynamic,” Meyers acknowledged, refreshingly. “You were Secretary of State while he was televising a Gary Busey job interview. The rules are different for you…It’s not fair, but if life were fair, Donald Trump would not be the Republican nominee; he would be the second best salesman at a carpet store in Queens.”
