Seth Meyers Rips Donald Trump's Response To Russian Hacking Revelation


Seth Meyers has called out President-elect Donald Trump over his reaction to CIA claims that Russian hackers meddled with the presidential election to help him into the White House. On Monday’s broadcast of “Late Night,” the host recognized there was “some dispute” over allegations that both the Democratic and Republican party’s emails were hacked, but only the former’s were leaked ― as the Republican National Committee claims it wasn’t targeted at all. “Still you might expect an incoming president to take seriously the findings of the intelligence agencies that he’ll need to rely on as president,” said Meyers, who then chided Trump for the questionable statement he released in response to the claims, which read: “These are the same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. The election ended a long time ago in one of the biggest Electoral College victories in history. It’s now time to move on and ‘Make America Great Again.’” Following a short look of disbelief, Meyers broke down the inaccuracies in the statement. “First of all, it was not one of the biggest Electoral College victories in history,” he said. “It actually ranks 46th out of 58 presidential elections. To put that in Sunday cable TV rating terms, Trump’s not “The Walking Dead,” he’s the “Barefoot Contessa.” “Second, what do you mean the election ended a long time ago? You mean five weeks ago? Put it this way, the Cubs’ World Series win was recent. Their previous World Series win was a long time ago.” Check it out in the clip above.
