Seth Meyers Nails the Eerie Similarities Between Trump and Right-Wing Lunatic Roy Moore


NBC's Late Night host Seth Meyers used his "A Closer Look" segment on Wednesday to highlight the traits shared by President Donald Trump and GOP senate candidate Roy Moore from Alabama.

Trump supported Moore's opponent in the primary, but threw his support behind Moore after he won.

"[I]t makes sense that Trump is now enthusiastically backing Moore because Moore is very much cut from the same cloth as Donald Trump,” Meyers said.

He highlighted Moore's open homophobia and anti-Muslim sentiments. Meyers also brought attention to the fact that Moore is ignorant of policy, as evidenced by the fact he didn't know what the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy was.

According to Meyers, “[Moore] relies just as much on open bigotry as Trump and seems to care just as little about actual policy."
