With tears in his eyes, Seth Meyers on Wednesday was clear to give Late Night’s audiences a message of hope. It’s painful, but it’s not hopeless, he said. he Meyers hoped he’d be as wrong about Trump as president.
The Late Night host spoke about how excited three generations of his family were to see America, introduce it’s first female president.
“I felt a lot of emotions last night and into today, ” Meyers said. “Some sadness, some anger, some fear. But I’m also aware that those are the same emotions a lot of Trump supporters felt, emotions that led them to make their choice, and it would be wrong for me to think my emotions are somehow more authentic than their emotions.”
To the future first female president, who may just born he said, “We don’t know who you are, but I imagine this moment today will be a defining one for you. One that will make you work harder, and strive farther, and whoever you are, I hope I live to see your inauguration.”
