Seth Meyers is NOT a fan of Donald Trump.
The “Late Night” host took a “closer look” Monday night at this weekend’s report that showed Donald Trump may have avoided paying taxes for nearly two decades and in the end shared his theory for why the GOP candidate refuses to release his tax returns.
Meyers said, “Here’s why this latest revelation is damning. First of all, there’s the fact that Trump has consistently sold himself as a brilliant business man who could use those skills to fix the economy. But as we found out this week, as Trump got richer over those 18 years, his investors saw their money disappear. Normally to get that screwed you have to actually go into the casino.”
Meyers continued, “So this week, yet again, showed how much of a scam artist Trump is. And even after all of this, Trump still won’t release his tax returns. Just think of how bad they have to be that whatever’s in there is worse than a $916 million loss.”
Meyers then concluded with his theory for why “you won’t release you returns,” saying, “I think you’re poor. I think you pretend to be rich, but you’ve been going town to town for 18 months selling cheap hats. And you know what else I think? I think you’re only up at 3 a.m. in the morning because you have a second job answering customer service calls from India.”
