“If you write in ‘crazy person’ on your ballot, it counts for Trump.”
Leave it to Seth Meyers, a comedian who spent many years being a fake newscaster on “Saturday Night Live” to finally report on Donald Trump’s troubling relationship with white nationalists. Donald Trump has attracted all kinds of racist crazies out of the woodwork, including William Johnson, whose poor little white supremacist heart was crushed when he was disinvited from being a Trump delegate at the Republican National Convention.
This is a good opportunity to bring back this video of the time Meyers trolled Trump.
This, of course, isn’t the first time that Meyers has gone H.A.M. on the GOP frontrunner. Back in 2011, Meyers was the performer at the annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, and Trump was in the political news cycle because he kept demanding that President Obama release his birth certificate. (Obama, of course, eventually did release it, which is more than you can say about Trump, who’s refusing to release his tax returns. But we’re not going to get into that.) Meyers commented that a Trump presidency would be the most absurd thing ever. Now, to quote The Smiths, that joke isn’t funny anymore. It’s too close to home and too near the bone.
Everyone assumes I speak Spanish. It’s not an unfair assumption to make. After all, my skin is brown and I did grow up in Texas. What most people don’t know, however, is that I’m a third generation Latino. At least once a week, someone starts a conversation with me entirely in Spanish. I listen politely, waiting for an opportunity to explain that I am a traitor. I’ve spent the majority of my life satisfying diversity requirements for colleges and commercial roles. But I cannot speak Spanish. If you’re like me, you might be able to relate to the following.
