Donald Trump Calls Out Seth Meyers After He Gets BANNED From His Show
Donald Trump called out Seth Meyers after the late night host banned him from his show.
After the presumptive Republican nominee revoked press credentials for the Washington Post, the 42-year-old host of “Late Night with Seth Meyers” said he was banning Trump from his show in a move of solidarity for the publication.
“We here at ‘Late Night’ believe in freedom of the press so therefore have decided to stand in solidarity with them,” Meyers said this week.
But Trump hit back at Meyers Wednesday. (RELATED: Donald Trump Calls Out Samuel L. Jackson After The Actor Said This About Him)
“He has begged me to do the show for the last two years,” Trump said in a statement. “I have told him emphatically, ‘No.’ I only like doing shows with good ratings, which as everybody knows, I only make better.”
Trump said Meyers has “no talent” and his “delivery is so bad that he hurt himself.”
Meyers once had Trump scheduled to appear on his show, but he canceled for “not for any reason outside the normal campaign reasons.”
Meyers reaffirmed his ban Wednesday night.
“We instituted this ban, despite the fact that he’s never been here, or asked to be here, or would ever be caught dead here,” Meyers said. “I just think that takes an amazing amount of courage on our part.”
“So, ball is in your court, Donald. Either rescind your Washington Post ban or you’re not allowed to appear on a show you have no interest in appearing on. Although maybe now that you can’t have it, you’re changing your mind.”
