After playing clips of some members of the media and Donald Trump supporters questioning the timing of the mounting assault allegations leveled at the Republican presidential nominee, Meyers summed up the issue pretty quickly.
“When people ask why women wait to report sexual assault, that’s why, because instead of believing them, you question their motives,” he said.
“Stop pretending there’s an optimal time for women to go public with these kinds of allegations,” he added. It’s not like if you do it within the first 24 hours, you get a parade and an iTunes gift card.”
Since the bombshell video of Trump bragging about sexually assaulting women emerged last week, multiple women have come forward accusing Trump of groping and kissing them without consent. Former pageant contestants have also accused the GOP nominee of entering the contestants’ changing rooms when women were undressing.
Some of the accusers have cited Trump’s repeated denial of ever assaulting women during the second presidential debate as a reason for coming forward.
Check out the “Late Night” clip in the video above.
