Seth Meyers Takes ‘A Closer Look’ at ‘Hateful and Discriminatory’ Bathroom Bills

The recent anti-transgender “bathroom bills” and Target’s announcement of its inclusive bathroom policy have been met with loud and vociferous crowing from cultural conservatives who support discriminatory laws and policies on the basis of a non-existent public safety issue, but there has also been a wave of support for trans rights from Team Reasonable. On the latter count, add Late Night with Seth Meyers host Seth Meyers, who used his “A Closer Look” segment Thursday night to examine the bathroom bills, and those who support them. Meyers delivered his trademark comprehensive and funny look at the issue, including the too-often overlooked question of just how such laws are supposed to be enforced.

Meyers saved the best for last, though, taking a parting shot at bathroom bill fear-monger Ted Cruz that’s worth sticking around for. You can watch the clip above, from Late Night with Seth Meyers.
