Seth Meyers Rips Donald Trump Over His Birther Comments
Sep 29 2016 by Francis Osborne
Colbert was primed and ready to go with videos, "Maybe I remember it one way and Donald Trump is a liar".
Colbert's lesson is that Trump doesn't "get to flog this issue for five years and then act like you're correcting everybody else!" Later Trump suggested the president's supposed motive for not releasing his socalled long-form birth certificate-he had already released an official Hawaii certification of live birth-was to hide his religion. We decide when it's over.
After playing the clip where Trump finally admitted that Obama was born in the US, Colbert said, "That's what I call a firm grasp of the obvious". With "A Closer Look", Meyers has assumed Stewart's outraged sense of good conscience, and unlike the similarly skilled late-night takedown artists Samantha Bee and John Oliver (who host weekly shows), he can react to the news immediately.
Asked about the practice, which The Washington Post reported on Tuesday, Trump said simply that the foundation "gives money to vets and it's really been doing a good job". "It's certainly not over after a 30-second statement in the middle of a hotel commercial". "Next I assume he's going to announce that water is wet, that bears poop in the woods, and that Donald Trump is not qualified to be president".
"Obama wasn't born here is your No. 1 hit", he added. "Saying you got it from Hillary would be like Springsteen saying he only wrote "Born to Run" because he heard Bon Jovi say it once". "I will feel it is my duty as an American citizen to tell the people what he is really like", Maples and her daughter, Tiffany Trump, have mostly kept to themselves this election season.
Trump claims he "finished" the conspiracy back in 2011 when President Obama released his long-form birth certificate. "Trump thinks the president orchestrated a plane crash so accurate that it only killed the one person who could prove his birth certificate was a fraud". We wanna take out 12E. The bottom line is this. On Monday, as his fellow late-night hosts ripped into Trump, Fallon aired a taped interview with Hillary Clinton in which he gave her a bag of things Trump "left behind" after his appearance.
