Sprinkling in a little humor to cut the reality, Meyers continued, "In general, I am hopeful for President Trump because hope is always the best possible path to take, and one thing that makes me hopeful is we know from interviews he's given over the years that he has, at any given point, held every position on every issue".
"I do really feel for the parents who had to explain this to their kids this morning", he said.
Myers has also been open in his desire to see a female president in the White House. He said no matter how people feel, Trump will be the next US president, adding it's fortunate that several states legalized marijuana use.
Seth Meyers kicked off Late Night with a monologue that lasted almost ten minutes, working in a few jokes but mostly speaking earnestly about his disappointment with the election results, his hope for a future woman president, and his plea that President Trump show more tolerance and compassion than candidate Trump. "And after the results came in, Donald Trump gave a big victory speech".
Late-night hosts pivoted from candidate Donald Trump to President-elect Trump, combining punchlines and audience group counseling after the billionaire's defeat of Hillary Clinton.

"We've been talking about Donald Trump on this show for 18 months, and one of the things I've tried to make clear over those 18 months is how I've been wrong about him at every turn", Meyers said opening his show on Wednesday night. "Let's just hope this trajectory holds", he exclaimed. And whoever you are, I hope I live to see your inauguration.
"We still have millions of nasty women who aren't going away, and as along as women over 25 are still allowed on television, I'll be here cheering them on". Hopefully you're not a toddler, but who knows.
Meyers wrapped up with the hope that Trump really is not as racist and was just using the hateful rhetoric to court voters, because after all, when we court someone we pretend to be someone we're not, right? The fact is we don't know who you are, but I imagine this moment today will be a defining moment for you.
