Seth Meyers Can’t Believe He Agrees with Trump on Planned Parenthood


As part of his continued effort to pick up where Jon Stewart left off, Seth Meyers delivered a Daily Show-style deep dive into this week’s Planned Parenthood hearings last night, complete with the most absurd clips of Republican congressmen grilling Cecile Richards without actually allowing her to speak in response.

Watch video below, via NBC:

Meyers particularly enjoyed the moment when Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) asked Richards to explain the blatantly distorted chart below:

“There’s a bigger number on the bottom and smaller number on the top,” Meyers said, highlighting the right side of the graph. “And they made a chart with no Y-axis. Why? Because they don’t believe in funding for affordable health care.”

Towards the end of the segment, Meyers tracked down “at least one Republican that’s against abortion who can concede that Planned Parenthood serves a purpose”: Donald Trump.

Back in August during an appearance on Hannity, Trump actually defended the organization, explaining that abortion is a “fairly small part of what they do” and arguing that “we have to look at the positive also for Planned Parenthood.”

“Well, well, well, Donald Trump,” Meyers said, impressed.

As for that graph, here is a more accurate version put together by Vox:
