Seth Meyers had a brutally honest message for Hillary Clinton after she blamed Bernie Sanders for her election defeat in her new book.
“Hey! Hillary Clinton!” Meyers began. “Don’t blame Bernie just because Donald Trump called you names. I promise you he was gonna do that anyway.”
The Late Night host then asked her if she thought that Trump needed Sanders’s permission “to be an asshole” because “assholes don’t ask for permission,” which is what “makes them assholes.”
“Why are you wasting pages on Bernie?!?” he exclaimed. “Do you think he’s gonna read this? He’s not! First off, he’s not a fan. And second off, Bernie’s not paying $17.99 for a book!”
Meyers assured her that Bernie is not the reason she lost because she “beat Trump by 3 million votes.”
“If you want to blame something ancient, blame the electoral college,” he said.
He then reminded Clinton that Sanders “didn’t tell [her] not to go to Wisconsin,” to “give paid speeches to Wall Street,” nor write this terrible Pokemon Go joke.
“This isn’t the time to complain because Senator Woodstock didn’t roll over for you,” he told Clinton as he urged her to help unite Democrats and liberals. “If anything, he helped you be a better candidate!”
