It’s election crunch time, and Dems are panicking over FBI Director James Comey’s election-impacting announcement about Anthony Weiner’s computer, Seth Meyers said in his latest Closer Look at the election cycle. Meanwhile, House Speaker Paul Ryan can’t bring himself to say Donald Trump’s name when asked if he had voted for his party’s candidate on Fox & Friends.
Voters similarly are unhappy with both candidates, with less than a week before Election Day. Some still are finding it hard to choose between Trump and Hillary Clinton, NBC’s Late Night host acknowledged, understandingly.
