Seth Meyers Rips Donald Trump For Wasting His 1 Chance On Steve Bannon

“He’s a white nationalist and an anti-Semite. Don’t talk about him like he’s pineapple on pizza."

Seth Meyers was begrudgingly prepared to offer a fresh start to president-elect Donald Trump.

Despite the racist, anti-immigrant and sexist rhetoric of Trump’s presidential campaign, the “Late Night” host revealed Monday how he was ready to give the 70-year-old reality TV star a chance to “surprise us” by changing his ways.

That was until Trump appointed Breitbart News executive chairman Steve Bannon to be his chief strategist

“Well, we gave him a chance,” Meyers said. “Bye chance, thank you for stopping by. Good to see you, chance.”

Meyers highlighted how Bannon’s ultra-conservative website was “adored by white nationalists” and urged people not to lazily dub Bannon as just “controversial.” 

“He’s not controversial,” explained Meyers. “He’s a white nationalist and an anti-Semite. Don’t talk about him like he’s pineapple on pizza.”

Watch Meyers unload on Bannon and Trump’s other possible cabinet picks in the monologue above.
