Seth Meyers recapped Super Tuesday and looked ahead to a Biden-Sanders match-up as Mike Bloomberg dropped out of the race.
A field that once had over 20 candidate now looks like it is down to a two man race. Former Vice President Joe Biden took a big step forward on Super Tuesday but Senator Bernie Sanders remains very much in contention. Late Night with Seth Meyers broke it all down in Wednesday’s “A Closer Look.”
Biden collected a number of delegates on Tuesday as many Americans looked for the choice who could best defeat President Donald Trump. Sanders, who was the frontrunner ahead of Super Tuesday, did manage a key victory in California.
Meanwhile, candidates like Senator Elizabeth Warren and former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg struggled. Bloomberg subsequently ended his campaigning, which could also bring an end to Fred Armisen’s cameos on Saturday Night Live.
So now Democrats will have to decide between Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders: two men in their late 70s with long careers in politics and two different plans for the future. Seth Meyers examined the head-to-head match-up and more in “A Closer Look.”
If former Vice President Joe Biden is the Democratic nominee, he will defend the Obama administration’s legacy against President Trump face-to-face. Meyers highlights how President Trump once again tried to blame a current problem on the failures of former President Barack Obama. But before that point, Biden may want to shore up his stage presence. Late Night couldn’t resist sharing another one of Biden’s now frequent gaffes.
Going forward, Biden will have the support of Mike Bloomberg behind him. Meyers displays a satisfied grin as he reports that Bloomberg dropped out of the race after spending $500 million to get embarrassed by Senator Elizabeth Warren in the debates.
Whether it is Biden or Sanders that winds up with the party’s nomination will come down to their electability. Meyers has a lot of fun with the buzz word in recapping the coverage of Super Tuesday. The comedian argues that anyone should seem more electable than President Trump after witnessing three years of the current administration.
The Democratic race for the nomination became even more interesting after Super Tuesday. It is down to Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, both tasked with proving their electability. It also means that late night hosts like Seth Meyers will put their words and actions under a microscope even more.
